Friday 23rd June : EDWINA HAYES at Henshaw’s

Edwina returns to Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre to bring us her beautiful songs and friendly banter. She has toured with Jools Holland, Van Morrison and Loudon Wainwright III to name just a few, and the title track of her album “Pour Me A Drink” was covered by Nanci Griffith who called her ‘The sweetest voice in England’.
Edwina’s song ‘Feels Like Home’ was featured in the film My Sister’s Keeper and has since had  over thirty million plays on You Tube. We think Edwina is one of the loveliest singer- songwriters on the circuit today and we know  you will love her too!

Wednesday 2nd August : DOUBLE BILL – HAZJAK and COBALT TALES at Roosters. We are delighted to bring back two highly popular Yorkshire duos to the club this summer. It’s going to be a great night of music, laughter …….and maybe even a little bopping!!

Hazjak are no stangers to the club and at their last visit you made it very clear you wanted them back! Steve and Lynne are a Yorkshire duo playing an eclectic style of Roots, Americana and Folk music, they bring their considerable instrumental talent and trademark harmonies to their wide repertoire of songs, all served up with a rich sense of fun.  

Cobalt Tales opened the Merry Hell Concert for us last year and you loved their infectious enthusiasm. With powerful vocals from Pat accompanied by gorgeous harmonies and driving base from Nuala, these talented singer songwriters bring their own songs and classic covers to bring a smile to your face.

Wednesday 20th September: DAN WALSH and ALASTAIR ANDERSON at Roosters.

We can honestly say that seeing these two perform together ranks as one of our top ten gigs of all time! Dan is a virtuoso banjo player and his tutor on his music degree was the legendary concertina player Alastair Anderson.. Together these world class musicians are pure magic. You can expect a repertoire ranging from bluegrass to Northumbrian tunes, from jazz to reels, all presented with enthusiasm and obvious shared enjoyment.
