Event Details

The Monastery Manchester in association with Red Balloon Music presents… our very first collaborative Summer Acoustic Music Festival!

We’re proud to host what will be a wonderful afternoon of beautiful, acoustic music from local singer-songwriters, and joining us for this one-off, special event will be these 3 talented performers.


Megan Dixon Hood is an independent artist taking inspiration from folklore, mythology, nature, and human beings. Exploring otherworldly and alternative genres, her music is written from deep, dark, enchanted woods, hinting at the fairytale world of Florence + the Machine and AURORA.

Megan creates forest pop soundscapes that gather you up and immerse you in cinematic storytelling. Past shows have seen her headline a tour in the UK, play festivals including Cornbury, 2000 Trees and Nozstock, perform on SKY TV, and support Rag N Bone Man. On her journey, she has enticed the ears of independent tastemakers, becoming a regular feature on BBC Introducing Stoke and appearing on Extinction Rebellion’s Creative Hub. Having released several singles over the past couple of years, Megan Dixon Hood recently released her debut album ‘East Of The Sun’, inviting listeners into a world of magic and mystery.

“…Dark gothic storytelling and soaring spellbinding vocals provided a fittingly bewitching performance…” – Belwood Music

A painter, poet, songwriter and storyteller, Toria Wooff stands in the crossfires of gothic literature and pained Americana. Taking inspiration from a love affair with the 1970s, her haunting vocals swim through a sea of pedal steel and Hammond organ back to the golden era of folk rock.

A Seventies throwback with finesse” – At The Barrier

Audrey’s Dance are a two piece sad-pop band from Lancashire.

Vocals – Hannah Rebecca Greatorex

Keys – Zeynep Ozsabuncu

It’s her voice, combined with the eerie haunting keyboards, that would reduce us to tears. There’s an awkwardness that just endears us to them even more, as if they don’t quite realise how good they are. They demand your attention” – Even The Stars

Check out Audrey’s Dance’s Bandcamp page here.

Doors open at 12pm, and music will run from 12.30pm until 3.30pm.

Tickets are £10 each – with all money raised going towards The Monastery Organ Restoration Fund.
