This song was written for, and performed during Northumberland Festival of the Arts 2022.
How What Fun! got started
In the spirit of collaboration and celebration, Northumberland musicians Lynn C. Bilton, Christopher Cameron and Marie-Lynn Hammond got together to record Lynn’s new song, Spread the Word.
The trio had so much fun creating this music video at Northumberland Music Studio in Warkworth that they decided to name their group What Fun!
