A Perfect Summer Evening

Singing on the river Cambridge

Music on the River brings you live acoustic music on the River Cam. These events are intimate gigs with multiple artists performing throughout the summer period. Since the events are taken place on the river, the backdrop does not disappoint. Passing some of the most beautiful architecture in the UK, it creates an incredible atmosphere that will never be forgotten. Our line up this year are a great mix of pop, alternative, indie, rock, originals and covers which combines the best artists of the City with Cambridge’s number one activity – punting.

Music on the River takes place over 3 Fridays in July and August. Tours depart at 7.30pm (late arrivals with miss the event) and return at around 9pm. During each evening you will be entertained and enthralled, with each performance lasting over 60 minutes. Whats more, you even get the chance to speak with the artists directly in-between songs.

More about the artists:

Dorothea: “A passionate Vocalist & Songwriter. Based in the United Kingdom. Pop, Alternative Rock and R&B influenced artist.”

Liam Martin: “Liam Martin’s music features atmospheric, emotive and cinematic resonances along the lines of Paper Kites, and Sleeping at Last, drawing influence from the essence of Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Damien Rice, and S Carey.”

Ukulele Simon: “The beatboxing ukulele guy, making music using ukuleles, beatbox and effects… LOTS OF EFFECTS”
