Young musicians rock the House of Commons
GIFTED young musicians rocked the House of Commons at a unique gig.
The band, Stoneway, who won a national competition to perform in the Speaker’s Room in Westminster, performed an original track that reflects their thoughts about broken promises within the music industry.
The fab four, all aged 18 and from Runcorn, are students at Priestley College.
Danny Smith, of Windmill Hill, said: “Our ‘green room’ was where the Queen or royalty stays when they are visiting. Around the walls there were paintings that are almost life-size and the whole place was amazing.”
Ste Fisher from Northwich Road, Alex Roberts from Copperwood and Merryn Dowson from Sunniside Lane make up the band.
During the event they spoke to the lead guitarist of White Snake who complimented their original songs.
Ste said: “It was a great opportunity to do something like that and be put in front of those people so early in our career.”
They perform in Singapore next month as part of their prize and have won Yamaha equipment Stoneway performing in the Speaker’s Room in Westminster
