EDDI READER – York

8pm Sat 28th April – £20

St MICHAEL-le-BELFREY CHURCH, YORK
(Next to York Minster)

 

After her performance in Saltaire last year, SaltaireLive is involved in bringing Eddi Reader to York in spring 2018

Eddi first came to fame in the 1980’s as singer with Fairground Attraction, but for over 20 years has built her following as a solo artist. With a slightly maverick style, she is a compelling live performer with a passion and instinct which never fail to move & enthral her audience. From the traditional to the contemporary, she and her band bring joyous life to all forms of song and anything with her name on it is guaranteed musical treasure.

EDDI READER TICKETS available from www.sivtickets.com

SHOW of HANDS “Where We’re Bound” – York

+ Support GEOFF LAKEMAN

 

8pm Sat 12th May – £22.50

St MICHAEL-le-BELFREY CHURCH, YORK

 

 

Another band for whom it’s a little too soon to return to to Saltaire after their 2017 appearance, Show of Hands also make the move over to York this spring.

On their “Where We’re Bound” tour Phil Beer & Steve Knightley will be playing as a duo. Despite the name of the tour, they will actually be casting their eyes backwards, focussing on material from their early albums, which featured familiar songs that have gone on to become Show of Hands classics, and a rich vein of forgotten gems.

Show of Hands weave story and melody to create spellbinding shows and this show celebrates the duo’s enduring impact on roots, folk and acoustic music..

Opening the show will be Steve and Phil’s special guest, fellow Devonian Geoff Lakeman, forefather of the prolific Lakeman tribe.

SHOW of HANDS TICKETS available from www.sivtickets.com
Or direct from SALTAIRELIVE (See tickets page for details)
