Thanks to Rebecca and Ken aka Hungrytown for an excellent nights entertainment on Monday – If you missed them you can still catch them in the UK see – http://hungrytown.net/concerts/

Next Monday is part of Barnsley’s We Shall Overcome week of events to raise money for Barnsley’s Food Banks and Barnsley Churches Drop-in centre.

All artists are donating their time for free and include – Dave Burland, Richard Kitson and Scott Doonican, The Hurriers, Devils Water and String Theory.
To make the night a bit special, we have asked the acts to do something they wouldn’t normally do, so Richard and Scott are making a very rare appearance as The Last of the Independents – acoustic Rory Gallagher Blues covers, The Hurriers are performing unplugged, String Theory is now a 6-piece with Mick Roberts on Bass, Andy Munro on guitar and occasional 4th Member Zoe Bottomely on backing vocals. Editor of Stirrings Magazine, Raymond Greenoaken is bringing his Duo, Devils Water. Dave Burland argues that he is different anyway, and knowing that he usually throws in a rock and roll cover or two, we can’t argue with that!

We’ve booked the concert room at the trades so there is plenty of room – please come and show your support – we’re suggesting £5 into the collection, but every penny counts. (note there will be no floor spots on this occasion)

Further ahead we have the Rubber Wellies, one of Mike Harding’s favourite bands on 10th Oct and The Rolling Down Hills on 17th.
