Birds on the lake while music played on the lawn at Mount Stewart gardens

The last time I visited Mount Stewart Gardens they were having music from David Taylor and his own backing musicians on the lawn.  He is probably the most influential  retro soul/R & B revue on the live circuit over the past 3 decades.  David Taylor is regarded as one of the most versatile vocalists around and has a range than can deliver everything from pop, soul, motown and rock to the sweetest romantic ballads.  Today, this event was jazz based.  People had brought their seats, rugs and picnic and were enjoying the sun while listening to the music.


Because it was a very still day, as I walked round the lake, I could still hear the music in the background and then I came back and videoed a couple of numbers.  Sorry about the people who walked in front of me while I was videoing.






This is Davy as he entertained us with his band.
