Church hosts a folk legend

This Saturday, St George’s welcomed 83-year old folk legend, Roy Bailey, and his touring partner Marc Block, at the first ever fundraising concert for the Kendal Winter Shelter.

Over 100 keen fans gave Roy a standing ovation at the end of his marathon two-hour set, full of heart-warming songs about standing by our fellow human beings, whether homeless, unemployed or refugees and welcoming everyone with love, rather than threatening war.

Many of the audience were visiting St George’s – and in some cases Kendal – for the first time and all were impressed by our beautiful building and its lovely acoustic – so look out for more concerts on your doorstep in future, too!
