With Christmas and the New Year behind us, it’s now time to look ahead at what is on offer over the next few months to brighten up the Winter before the sun finally brings warmth to us all and Spring arrives.
The Stage4Beverley festival is certainly one event that promises to bring a glow to us all, and a sell-out concert already and another almost sold out, those wishing to buy tickets would be well advised to check out the programme which offers great variety over the five day festival in February.
Artists range from the hugely popular comedian, poet and musician John Hegley; to the virtuoso jazz, flamenco guitarist Eduardo Niebla, and the amazing funk-fuelled repertoire of Tankus the Henge with their wildly eclectic music, ranging from New Orleans inspired swing to heavy rock riffs.
For those wanting to learn a little more about their local history, “Broadside On” brings to the stage a night filled with music narrative about the former Beverley shipyard.
There is a lot more on offer also with some leading young musicians and singers from the region (Katie Spencer) and further afield (Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage) to name just two, as well as a concert dedicated to the rising stars of the future – The Horizon Stage, hosted by local musician Sam Pirt of the popular duo The Hut People.
For five days of music, poetry, comedy, the spoken word and the chance to “have a go yourself” in a Harmony workshop led by the Beverley Community Choir leader, Sue Murray, and an informal music session led by members of the White Horse Folk Club. What better way to shake off those Winter blues.
