Town Hall Live

by | 1 February 2024 | Gainsborough, Music

Town Hall Live in Kirton has just one concert in February when American duo Campbell Jensen headline, followed by two concerts in March.

Friday 9th February

Campbell Jensen

The duo of Ashley Campbell, daughter of Glen, and Thor Jensen produce a unique musical genre. Ashley comes from the world of country and Americana, whilst Thor has a diverse background from playing rock and gypsy jazz. Ashley plays the most beautiful banjo and guitar and Thor is a master of the guitar. Their voices blend perfectly together.

In January 2023 they hired a remote cottage in Ireland to record their debut album Turtle Cottage which came out in November. It is excellent and their THL concert should be one to remember. Tickets cost £16.00.

Saturday 2nd March

Arc Songwriters

Featuring transatlantic singer songwriters Kate Ellis, My Girl the River and Anna Howe. The girls perform ‘in the round’, taking turns to sing lead vocals on Americana, roots, and Country songs. The three gifted writers and performers create an intimate atmosphere singing their own songs, and others by the likes of Nanci Griffith and Emmylou Harris.

They also tell stories, share thoughts of love and heartbreak to bring us all together. It will be a magical evening. Tickets for this concert are priced at £15.00.

Saturday 16th March
