Going Live at Stony

Stony Stratford’s annual music event, Stony Live, starts on Saturday 1st June and runs all week until Sunday 9th.

Stony Stratford seems to be full of musicians, and there’s a huge variety in the sort of music they play. At Stony Live there’s rock, folk, jazz, blues, a choir, and traditional music. Of course, not everybody who plays or appears has to come from Stony Stratford.

I like the old rock music and the heavy blues, so it’s likely I’ll be in the Fox and Hounds quite often over the course of Stony Live. I’ll try some other things too, as it’s not just music.

You’ll find art, drama, a barn dance, and on Sunday is Classic Stony in the Market Square, where you can see classic cars and motorcycles. I saw a Field Marshall tractor there last year, like the one my Grandad had. If you have a classic vehicle, bring it along.

Classic Stony, like most of the Stony Live events, is free. This is a list of events.

Here’s some photos from last year The first four were taken in The Cock Hotel at last year’s Rock for Willen charity event. This year’s event, Rock for Willen 2: Blue Floyd, is on Sunday 9th, again in the Cock Hotel.
