Cuban Lift at the Coldstones Cut June 2011

Cuban Lift the famous band which specialises in playing music from South America using a mixture of traditional instruments such as pan pipes, bongos and rain sticks and contemporary flutes and guitars, at the Coldstones Cut. The band then went on to play at the Old Workhouse in Pateley Bridge to draw an end to the very successful North Yorkshire Open Studios event.
