Henry Priestman and The Men of a Certain Age
Friday August 27th 2021 – 7.30pm // The Back Room, Cottingham

After over 40 years in the music business – and with a credit list longer than both your arms – in 2009 Henry Priestman (having not sung since 1981!!) reinvented himself as a singer-songwriter, and released his debut solo CD “The Chronicles of Modern Life” (on legendary Island Records) to critical acclaim. 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. Intimate all seated show, limited to 100 tickets.

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…
