Get in touch to learn more about our repertoire and availability for your function.
2021 is long gone, but we're pleased to report that following our release from COVID rules in late June, we played 25+ gigs during the year and raised over £2500 for our chosen charity, St Michael's Hospice. The photo shows us playing during their 'Hospice care week' event in October outside the Victoria Centre in Harrogate.
This is proving to be a very busy year! We have over 30 bookings for 2022, here are some of the highlights:
Little Bird Artisan Markets, which are held monthly in the colonnades in Valley Gardens, Harrogate. We're signed up for all their monthly markets until August, playing at 1.00pm on the first Sunday of every month.
We are supporting our chosen charity, St Michael's Hospice at their regular collection events at the Victoria Centre, Harrogate – if the weather is fine, we play on the Piazza on Saturdays at 1.00pm – remaining gigs for this year on 25th June; 16th July; 30th July; 20th August and 8th October.
This was us at the Victoria Centre last October. Come along to join in the fun!
We have back to back gigs for the Jubilee Bank Holiday – we are the first act on stage in Jubilee Square, on West Stray on 2nd July, playing at Hampsthwaite Memorial Hall on the 3rd, a Housing Association garden party on the 4th and at Valley Gardens on the 5th – phew!
Meanwhile we have a number of provisional bookings which we will post as soon as we have dates.
So long for now..
