Beeswing is a four piece harmony folk group whose extensive repertoire includes Geordiesongs, songs from our mining heritage, sea songs, songs to  sing along with, as well as songs from Lancashire and Scotland.  Beeswing has been together for over 15 years but their individual experiences and talents are far in  excess of this. Beeswing is Dave, Christine, Fraser, and Keith. We can perform at any type of function and come complete with our own PA as well as public liability insurance, if required. Every January, Beeswing is privileged to present   the  annual concert in memory of the Hartley Pit Disaster . Beeswing has appeared all over the North from the Sage to more intimate venues festivals, open air concerts, Seaton Delaval Hall, Cherryburn museum, the Newcastle Keep, Segedunum Roman Fort, Woodhorn Colliery museum, High House Farm Brewery, Newcastle Mining Institute and many more venues.

With Beeswing, you are guaranteed an interesting and enjoyable experience.. 

Dave will advise on availability and price for your function. Beeswing can offer themed nights, be it Burns, songs of the sea, Tyneside songs and more. Just ask.

Beeswing recorded a CD  in aid of St Paul's Church in Dudley. Copies can be bought for £7 and all proceeds will go to the church refurbishment programme.
