Penrith nightclub The Warehouse was the venue for a Saturday night acoustic takeover which showcased some promising local talent.
First on was Shaniah Howat-Dobinson, who is originally from Dumfries but now lives in Penrith, a blend of popular songs spanning decades got the evening started in great fashion. Ellena Tallentire joined Shaniah for a duet at the end of her set where they sung ‘Wrecking Ball’.
Ellena then performed solo and she played Foster The People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ and popular Black Eyed Peas hit ‘Where Is The Love?’ amongst other classics. Ellena brought along a keen following of fans who enjoyed her performance and will no doubt return to the venue.
The penultimate act of the acoustic takeover was Tommy Graves, in time for an influx of prom-goers that packed The Warehouse as the clock ticked to midnight. Tommy performed some songs of Ed Sheeran, who headlined Glastonbury last week and divided opinion between music fans.
Eliza Gutteridge was the youngest of the performers at 16, and when she came on as the final act the audience were up for a singalong to old and new hits.
The Warehouse will be hosting their next Acoustic Takeover on Saturday 5th August.
