Henry Priestman and The Men of a Certain Age

Never one to rush things, 5 years later, in Feb 2014 Proper Records released the eagerly awaited follow-up entitled “The Last Mad Surge of Youth”, which garnered Henry the best reviews he’s had in his many years of releasing albums.

Snake Davis: Burden of Paradise
Saturday August 28th 2021 – 7.30pm // The Back Room, Cottingham

Sax man Snake hits the road again in 2020 with his almost acoustic line-up “Burden of Paradise” for a series of intimate concerts. The band was formed seven years ago with three of his very favorite musician friends. Breathtaking skill, warm co-operation and witty anarchic banter. BoP invites its audience into a world of tenderness, virtuosity and human frailty. No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass and guitar. BoP’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding. Intimate all seated show, limited to 100 tickets.

The Wandering Hearts + support (AFTERNOON SHOW)
Sunday August 29th 2021 – 1.30pm // The Civic Hall, Cottingham

To paint a picture of The Wandering Hearts one would need to find their most blood red hard earned brush. An Americana / Country music group from London that came together almost in defiance of the current zeitgest of rhinestone hats and Fender guitar UK country-rock that has jumped onto the proverbial bandwagon in the last two years.

Special stipped back performance from the former festival headliners…
