THE new year starts this Saturday for the Faldingworth Live series of concerts and features a triple bill of music.
Better Late than Naked, CARA and the harriWattsband all take to the stage in Faldingworth Village Hall and will each play for 45 minutes, starting at 8pm.
Hull-based harriWattsband perform self-penned original material blending both contemporary and traditional singer-songwriter styles in various genres, adding a fresh slant on today’s local music scene. Their line-up is: Derrick Harrison – electro/acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Dave Watts – electric violin and vocals, Dave Short – electro/acoustic bass and vocals.
CARA perform original celtic-inspired music. The band, based in North Lincolnshire, has been writing and performing traditional and original celtic-inspired music since 2001, when a set of chance encounters led them to appreciate the potential of working together.
Their line-up is: David Oakley – violin and mandolin, Mike Ryan – whistles, uillean pipes, mandolin, guitar and vocals, John Rawlings – guitar.
And finally, Better Late Than Naked is a folk trio based in Lincolnshire – folk in the sense that it is at folk clubs and festivals that they seek work, but their repertoire is as wide as that broad audience allows.
Their line-up is: Phil Biggs who writes songs and plays guitar and mandola, Mark Addison also writes, and plays electric and acoustic bass, John Blanks sings and plays guitar.
Tickets cost £8 and can be reserved for payment on the door by contacting Les Worrall on 01673 843036 or Dave Longden on 01673 885369.
Doors open at 7.15pm and there will be a bar, but take along your own food.
