Town Hall Live, Kirton has two concerts in October. The first on Saturday 15th sees The Dan Webster Band from York headline.
Dan Webster has been described as ‘one of the UK’s best kept musical secrets and one not to miss’. He is an insightful lyricist with a great voice and has been described as the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country. His music is as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville – call it ‘Anglicana’.
Dan, like his band, is a formidable live performer inspiring attention, pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics – delivered with a powerful and honest vocal. The band includes guitar, violin, cello, bass and drums. They’ll have you laughing, dancing and crying.
The band’s violinist and singer Emily Lawler will play a short opening set before the band come on. Emily is a star on the rise.
The second concert on Saturday 29th features The Joe Martin Band from Lancashire. As a youngster, Joe listened to a wide range of genres and always knew that he wanted to create that magical feeling of captivating stories through song writing.
Still only 24, his songs sound beyond his years. He and his band are deservedly gaining attention in the UK. His Town Hall Live concert is a pre-cursor to the release of his debut album and his first nationwide tour. He has previously released three 5-track EPs.
Joe has visited Nashville and played at the legendary Bluebird Café. His performance there prompted the New York Times Joe Egner to write ‘The night I was at the Bluebird a young Englishman with a rich resonant voice Joe Martin seemed primed for bigger things’. Bigger things are just around the corner for Joe. He will be joined in Kirton by his band that is made up of CJ Hillman on lead guitar and pedal steel, Mark Lewis on bass and Dan Wiebe on drums.
Tickets for both concerts are priced at £14.00 and can be obtained from the Londis store in Kirton, from Brian on 01652 649230 or firstname.lastname@example.org or from www.wegottickets.com.
