Free entry for all ages and we have a wide range of special food and drink deals on throughout January, so this is the perfect wallet-friendly New Year family treat.
Golty Farabeau & the E&I Band
Golty Farabeau is a roots reggae and sega musician from The Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. His music reflects the beauty and relaxed lifestyle of his homeland.
Golty first toured professionally as a teenager, playing bass for a well-known Mauritian artist. Since then his reputation has spread across the world, and he is a major name in his home country, well regarded for his compositions, rich voice and unique basslines. His career highlights include playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, being featured on a Swatch advert, receiving a gold medal at the Isles Jeux de la Francophonie in Madagascar in 1997, playing alongside Bitty McClean in 2000 and participating in Fete Afrique in 2002.
Since settling in the UK, Golty has become a popular performer on the North West music scene, where his performances have included the Cultural Collage Music Festival in Manchester, Mintfest in Kendal, Manchester International Festival and Blue Dot.
Golty Farabeau has produced eight albums and is continually working on new songs.
Since the pandemic, Golty has been featured with the Manchester-based E&I Collective and has now formed a band with some of the members: Golty Farabeau and the E&I Band. He will be debuting with the new band at the View from the Moon.
January is a tough month, especially at this time of rising costs. So we’ve decided to spread a little sunshine and make our View from the Moon family friendly global music weekender this weekend completely free, thanks to the kind support of our friends at the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Bring your friends, family and your little ones and join us at Band on the Wall for a weekend of incredible music from all corners of the globe, suitable for all ages!
