Hi everyone! As we try to navigate our way through this rather tricky scenario please be kind to us. We’re learning too. We’re going to try and do some shows! We all, you guys included, have to adhere to the current local and national event guidance. We’re going to have to be much more organised (and potentially bossy) than we like to be here. Please read the information here before attending a show.
A sneaky socially distanced opportunity to celebrate the release of ‘Return’, the debut record from Katy J Pearson on Bella Union.
It’s a jewel in the dirt by the side of the highway; ten songs which slide effortlessly between lovelorn country, lo-fi folk and glistening, unforgettable pop. It’s fabulous and we’re very pleased to be able to host this intimate show.
The remarkable rise of award winning trio The Trials of Cato on the UK folk-scene has been the subject of massive critical attention. Dubbed “The Sex Pistols of folk,” (J Davis) they pay clear homage to the tradition whilst twisting old bones into something febrile and modern, with stomping tunes and captivating stories.
Three accomplished musicians in their own right, Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award winning guitarist, banjo-player and singer Bella Gaffney, clawhammer banjo player and singer Kate Griffin and acclaimed fiddle-player and tunesmith Holly Brandon draw on their wide-ranging influences to create a unique blend of transatlantic folk. This all-female trio is already establishing a fearsome reputation for their glittering live shows, onstage rapport and genre-busting original and traditional material.
Willy Mason returns to The Crescent in celebration of the release of his fourth album.
A great singer-songwriter, a lovely chap and likely with a cracking band too. Alternative leftfield-pop, folk and Americana done with character and fun.
On the third floor of an abandoned textile mill to the north of Preston, a wave of strange musical beauty is blossoming. Brought up on the sounds of nearby Manchester – think New Order and The Smiths et al – White Flowers, made up of Katie Drew and Joey Cobb, make gloriously gothic Lynchian pop music that’s as ambiguous as it is beautiful and exciting.
We’re chuffed to welcome London post-punks Shame for a very intimate socially distanced, seated show as they celebrate the release of their second album Drunk Tank Pink.
Born from the musical dreams of Istanbul based musician/producer Tolga Boyuk, Islandman represents a fiction character, a music persona, a dreamer composing the stories of a non -existing place…
Islandman performs on stage as an electro-acoustic live trio format. Their music can be described as a unique mix of mellow electronic structures & dance beats with spacey live guitars, backed up by shamanic rhythms.
Lloyd is back on the road with his latest stand up tour. It’s been a busy few years for Grimsby’s favourite (for now, anyway) comedian/choirboy. He’s recently been supporting Jack Whitehall on tour, and you may have also seen him in on 8 out of 10 cats (Channel 4), Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club (ITV), Ted Lasso (Apple TV), Can You Beat The Bookies? (BBC), Soccer AM (Sky One), Flinch (Netflix), Songs Of Praise (BBC1) ((lol)).
York heroes Bull will finally celebrate the release of their new album ‘Discover Effortless Living’ with us on Friday 24th Sept.
We can’t wait!
Get your tickets early folks.
Legendary Leeds alternative rock band CUD finally return to York.
