For the first time this year we welcomed Singer/Songwriter’s Hannah Schaefer from USA, and Rebekah Fitch from Belfast. During time with the youth both Hannah & Rebekah did a singer/songwriter workshop and together came up with our theme song! The last night of the festival we had a late night concert finishing with a duet version of Lauren Daigle’s You Say.
We really hope to see both Hannah Schaefer & Rebekah Fitch back next year!
