Cuffe and Taylor director Peter Taylor said: “We are delighted to be presenting Summer House Sounds across the UK this July.
“Since our inception more than nine years ago Cuffe and Taylor’s ethos has always been about taking music to the people and working in areas that don’t tend to attract huge household names.
“Cuffe and Taylor does this exceptionally well with past successes including the record-selling 2016 Rod Stewart Hits Tour where we presented Rod at football clubs throughout the UK including far-flung locations such as Inverness and Kilmarnock who, until then, had not experienced many big-name stars.
“Last year we worked with some of the stately homes which are included in Summer House Sounds to present the sold-out Cliff Richard and Ball and Boe tours.
“We are returning to those destinations again this summer but with more artists and more dates to make a really special event for those locations and, of course, we are going to more stately homes and castles to create fantastic Summer House Sounds.”
