Town Hall Live in Kirton has two shows in September. The first is on Friday 13th September, when The Josh Burnell Band will headline, whilst the second is on Friday 27th September, when Chorlton Country Club from Manchester bring their Roadshow Revue show to the town.
Joshua Burnell and his band from York are currently getting rave reviews from appearances at festivals across the country. Whilst growing up, Josh was drawn to progressive rock music and more recently became fascinated by traditional music. He has blended the two styles to create a sound totally his own. The band consists of Joshua on guitar, keyboards and vocals, Frances Sladen on vocals, Holly Brandon on violin, Nathan Greaves on lead guitar, Jack Woods on mandolin and Ed Simpson on drums. Support will come from Crooked Weather, who are Will Bladen and Holly Blackshaw, who are a perfect match for Joshua, with their unique blend of rock infused folk. Both acts have a big future ahead of them, don’t forget where you first saw them.
Chorlton Country Club are Thomas Dibb on guitar and vocals, Lauren Housley on vocals, Mark Lewis on bass and CJ Hillman and pedal steel. What started out as a local jam night for roots music enthusiasts, has blossomed into one of the north’s favourite spots to hear the best in the UK and overseas blues, soul and Americana music. Now Chorlton Country Club take their live music experience out on the road with them. What’s more they will be bringing special guests such as Robbie Cavanagh, Demi Marriner and Joe Martin. Expect songs such as Angel from Montgomery, Take it to the Limit (Eagles), To Love Somebody (The Bees Gees), The Weight, Up on Cripple Creek (The Band), Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash) and Jolene (Dolly Parton), as well as songs from Lauren’s band and the guest artists. It is guaranteed to be a night to remember with top class musicians.
