CUMBRIA'S most remote music venue will be sparking back into action this month with a live performance by one of the region's best-known musicians.

Singer-songwriter Elaine Davidson heads to Skiddaw House - 1,550ft up the Lake District's sixth highest mountain - on Friday July 27.

The hostel on the side of Skiddaw, overlooking Keswick, has been hosting some unique and unforgettable gigs over the past two years, and this latest concert kicks off the 2018 programme.

Several kilometres from the nearest road, the former hunting lodge and shepherd's bothy can only be accessed by the public on foot or by bike.

It is a little over an hour’s walk from the nearest other building or road.

Davidson has played across Europe and is currently recording her fourth album.

At Skiddaw House, her stunningly pure vocals and lyrics that tell many stories will also be supplemented by renowned fiddler Nick Jenkins' incredible playing.

Wigton-based Davidson will be performing traditional classics and new album material at the concert, packed full of original songs and exceptional musicianship.

Her most recent album, Can't Tell The River, was recorded in California with Warren Huart - her former bandmate and now a well-established record producer, who has worked with Aerosmith, James Blunt, and The Fray.

The acoustic concert on Friday 27 starts at 7pm, and the audience is limited to just 25 people. For more information about the event, and to book tickets and camping, visit
