This is the second time that this amazing band has graced the Mearfest Stage.
In May Last year, they came and opened our Mearfest North Gig in Newcastle and quite literally blew our minds!
This time they were much further up the bill and took to the stage with all the confidence and force that we have grown to expect.
Colin Berry the lead singer took command of the excited and vibrant audience
You hear the word front man banded about but this is surely what Colin is and much much more.
Rich in colour and depth the keyboards break through to absolutely enthrall us all.
To describe Mearfest as just a gig has become ridiculous, especially over the last couple of years
We have grown into a hugely emotive almost religious experience
Our close-knit ” family” has become immensely strong and inclusive.
As a support network, a source of strength, support and love it has become a thing of beauty and a monumental force of remembrance
The fact that Stormchild has embraced that and become so integral to us.
They are our family first and foremost and the blood runs deep.
A quite magnificent performance up on the Queens Hall stage.
Stormchild on this occasion prove that for once Lightning can strike twice and the fire, heat and flames will burn within us for eternity
” Witness the Stormchild
She is born of Thunder
Lightening strikes two at a time “
