From Sunday, July 19 to Sunday, July 26, the Ryedale Festival will, for the first time ever, livestream eight free-to-view concerts from magnificent North Yorkshire settings, including the beautiful pre-Raphaelite chapel of Castle Howard and St Michael’s Church in the village of Coxwold.

Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason will open the festival with an afternoon recital of Beethoven and classics from the American piano repertoire. Then, pianist and artistic director Christopher Glynn and singer Rowan Pierce will perform a winning mix of traditional songs.
