Up-Coming Gigs Up at Town Hall Live, Kirton in Lindsey, UK.

In September we have two more top class concerts, the first is on
Friday 13th September

with support from CROOKED WEATHER 
Josh Burnell got a great reaction when supporting The Once earlier this year.  On that occasion he was accompanied by Frances Sladen on vocals and Holly Brandon on violin.  They were so good that we just had to have them back with their full band.  The other members are Nathan Greaves on guitar, Jack Woods on mandolin and acoustic guitar, Matthew Melford on bass and Ed Simpson on drums.
Whilst growing up, Josh was drawn to progressive rock music and more recently began listening to traditional music.  He has blended the two styles to create something quite unique.
He created great interest in the folk world and the general music scene in 2018 with his ambitious 'Seasons Project', which saw him release one song a week for a whole year.  Fourteen favourites were chosen for his 'Songs for a Season' album, which got several 5* reviews in the British Music press.

Over the past two years they have gone down a storm at many festivals, such as Folk East, Music Port, Beardy Festival, The Great British Folk Festival and Costa Del Folk.  Earlier this year embarked on their first full length UK tour, which culminated in a show at Cecil Sharp House in London.  The band have a great future ahead of them.  We guarantee that you will have not seen their likes before.
The same can be said of the support act Crooked Weather, who are Will Blade and Holly Blackshaw, with their unique blend of rock infused folk.  They are melodic and magnificent.

 Advance Tickets are £13.00 and can be obtained from the Costcutter store in Kirton (formerly One Stop), from Brian on 01652 649230 or or from

Venue:  Town Hall, Market Square, Kirton in Lindsey, N Lincs, DN21 4LZ

CHORLTON COUNTRY CLUB are  Thomas Dibb, Lauren Housley, Mark Lewis and CJ Hillman.  In 2016 they got together with other musicians in the Manchester area to play regular Wednesday evening session at the Chorlton Club to play an eclectic mix of American roots music.
The monthly sessions have developed into having guest musicians play and now they take the format  out across the country as The Chorlton Country Club Revue.  The shows will feature a host of special guests including Robbie Cavanagh, Demi Marriner and Joe Martin.

The seven date tour will celebrate their debut studio album 'Volume 1' released on their own 'Triple C' record label.  The album features some of the greatest American songs of the last fifty years, including Take It To The Limit (Eagles), To Love Somebody (The Bee Gees) and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (The Band).
This will an evening of top class musicianship, some great songs, including many of Lauren's, great singing from Lauren and Tom. and some great cameos from Robbie, Demi and Joe.  Don't miss it.

Poor Nameless Boy from Saskatchewan UK tour Oct/Nov 2019

POOR NAMELESS BOY // (Saskatchewan, CANADA) - UK tour OCT / NOV 2019 final few dates remaining! Full Band...

Poor Nameless Boy
“In a world that celebrates being rich and famous, there’s something purely powerful about being poor and nameless.”
I met Joel at a recent music conference in Montreal and was immediately taken with his disarming, soft melodic delivery born from a keen perception of the human condition. This understated authenticity is why you’ll find him on the fringes of something much deeper than modern indie-folk. In his quest to retain a certain humbled anonymity, Regina-based Joel Henderson has, in fact, made himself more noticeable than ever.
Though similar to his contemporaries with his wispy, shiver-worthy vocal tones reminiscent of Donovan Woods and Gregory Alan Isakov; Henderson’s stark vulnerability sets him apart, coupled with a deep lyrical poignancy. Since the release of Activity Book (2013), and the proceeding, stunningly beautiful and acclaimed Bravery (2016); Henderson has seen some notable milestones, including a recent publishing deal and several successful tours and showcases in Canada and Europe.
Henderson’s striking grasp of life’s complexities is mirrored by a pure modesty, allowing listeners to immerse themselves into the stories, songs and experiences of Poor Nameless Boy without pretence. With no desire to be seen as a brand or commodity, his humanistic proposition is entirely irresistible, and as a songwriter, effortlessly engaging.

"Poor Nameless Boy (Joel Henderson) serves up a new generation of folk music while interacting naturally with the audience. A pleasure to have on our stage." - All Folk'd Up Music Festival
"Poor Nameless Boy actually has a name - it's Joel Henderson. The man's music bears a prime descriptor as well: classic folk/roots, Canadian-style. These warm and lovely songs need to be heard by a wider audience!" - Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio
