Country Meets Folk: The Haley Sisters with Iain and Joolz

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham
19:30 - 22:30

The Haley Sisters, Iain Glover & Joolz Cavell have been playing their wonderful “Country Meets Folk” evenings for almost a decade now, and we are delighted to welcome them back to the Town Hall. Expect a stunning evening of, well, country and folk, with innovative collaboration, wonderful musicianship, and a wonderful choice of songs.

The Haley Sisters – Jo-Ann and Becky from Harden near Bingley, along with award-winning songwriter, slide guitar and flat picker Brian – first appeared professionally back in 1989. Over a successful singing career they have played Americana, country, folk, blues… any song from any genre that feels good gets their magical blend of vocal harmonies and top-notch musicianship.

Iain Glover and Joolz Cavell first met at a local folk club in 2007 and it was “music at first sight”. Iain, a veteran of 40 years on the folk scene affectionately known as “the miserable mandolin player”, added his mandolin to Joolz’s contemporary folk style. She, in turn, added percussion to his more traditional range, and a partnership was born out of the sheer enjoyment of folk music. Ian is also a Town Hall veteran having played here in the 1970s with The Crofters.

Doors 7pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm.

Tickets £12, at Masham Community Office, 01765-680200.

“Victoria Wood meets Pavarotti”

Nicola Mills has turned Opera on its head, in this truly unique show not to be missed!

After ten years as an opera singer at venue including Glyndebourne and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Nicola ended up in Brussels where she started her show ‘The Down to Earth Diva’ which eventually became ‘Opera for the People’.

Nicola’s focus is on bringing happiness to people and she loves combining her Northern English roots with making opera and music accessible to people in a friendly way. Her song menu allows the audience to choose what they would like Nicola to sing for them.

Oasis Tribute “Fakermaker” plus 90s Britpop disco

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham
19:30 - 22:30

“You can have it all, but how much do you want it?”

Fakermaker are five lads with a mutual love of all things Oasis, recreating the songs that propelled the Gallagher brothers and their band to mega stardom in the mid-90s.

A proper five-piece like Oasis themselves, Fakermaker aim is to reproduce the sound of a live Oasis concert as close as they can, using all the right gear and the same attention to detail which Noel Gallagher is famous for. One way in which these guys do differ from the real thing is that they are less dour on stage and do believe there is space for the iconic banter that fans love to hear.

With their years of experience of playing live shows on the big stage, Fakermaker know how to dial in the wall of noise that Oasis are famous for, immersing the crowd in the sights, sounds and supersonic experience that made Oasis a unique force in British music.

Doors 7pm, on stage 8pm, music til at least 11.30. There will be seating and standing/dancefloor available. Please arrive early to be guaranteed a seat.

Tickets £15 at Masham Community Office, 01765-680200.

Gigspanner Big Band

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham
19:30 - 22:00

“Spectacular” 5***** – R2 Magazine

The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music…

Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’

Beginning life as a trio – with legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight being joined by percussionist Sacha Trochet and guitarist Roger Flack – the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin – BBC Folk Awards ‘Best Duo’), and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, joining the fray.

While Peter Knight, as part of Steeleye Span’s classic 1970s line-up, helped invent a brand of folk rock that is still influential today, John Spiers, with Bellowhead and a host of other projects, has had an equally profound impact on the landscape of traditional music over the last two decades.

Characterised by riotous inventiveness, technically gifted individual playing and subtle collaborative interaction, this coming together of several of the biggest names on the folk-roots scene combines a deep knowledge of roots traditions with a ceaselessly boundary pushing approach.

“Utterly thrilling” – Northern Soul

Tickets £25, available at Masham Community Office, 01765-680200.
