AL MURRAY – Landlord of Hope & Glory Tour 2019

Citizens of Hope and Glory! Our new tomorrow beckons. A new tomorrow that smells reassuringly of yesterday, but with wifi. One last heave and we will be there. And when the going gets tough the tough get going. Although the going won’t get tough and anyone who tells you it is going to be tough is lying.

Come join me to marvel at the majesty of our green and pleasant land. A land globally renowned for our culture, history and places, like the world-famous Salisbury Cathedral. Join me to step backwards into the future.

‘Stand up Gold’

The Shires

THE SHIRES

Five years since they first played at PAC, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes are now raising the bar in Nashville. The Shires have become one of the most talked about acts in the home of country music, partly thanks to their two record-breaking albums (debut Brave became the first UK country album to make the Top Ten in 2015), but also for their pulse-raising live shows. With only three albums under to their name, they’ve gone on to play Glastonbury, toured with Irish chart-toppers The Corrs, and became a staple of BBC Radio 2. We can’t wait to welcome this unique band to Pocklington.

Please note this event will be part standing, please check at point of booking. Taking place at The Old Station, Pocklington.


Website
HOTHOUSE FLOWERS

HOTHOUSE FLOWERS

This band will simply raise the roof! Something amazing happens when Ireland’s Hothouse Flowers step onto the stage. There is a sense of musical adventure, an impulse to reach new heights and depths in music as the band and audience become one and the world becomes a different place for a while… A rock n’ roll band, a traditional band, a soul band, a jam band with their own brand of jam on both sides of the bread! They have featured at numerous festivals including headlining the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury.

SETH LAKEMAN

SETH LAKEMAN

We are delighted that charismatic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman will be returning to Pocklington after 2018’s whirlwind world tour with rock legend Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters. During a short break from this tour Seth recorded his ninth solo album, The Well Worn Path, which has been met with rave reviews.

THE SOUTH

THE SOUTH

The South are an impressive 9 piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South (A Little Time, Perfect 10, Rotterdam) plus a few South originals and bring back the full flavour and arrangements with this exciting live band. Come on!
Let’s Carry On… Regardless!

THE GRAND SLAMBOVIANS

THE GRAND SLAMBOVIANS

Playing an utterly unique blend of rock and roll, folk, and quirky Americana, they have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd”, which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Waterboys, Neil Young, Dylan, and maybe a dash of Zappa. Their live shows are where the real magic comes down, earning them

“Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana.”
Maverick


Website
THE DUNWELLS

THE DUNWELLS

Leeds-based folk-rock outfit, The Dunwells, feature a pair of siblings – Joseph (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (vocal, piano, banjo, guitar) – along with a pair of their school friends: Rob Clayton on bass and Adam Taylor on drums. Formed in 2009, the band specialise in lush four-part vocal harmonies and employ a heady mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, drawing comparisons to Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes plus legends like the Eagles and Crosby, Stills & Nash.


Website
THE GRAND OLD UKE OF YORK

THE GRAND OLD UKE OF YORK

Yorkshire’s most vibrant ukulele collective. Big vocals, electronic ukes – they uke to Avicii, The Coral, Queen, ACDC, Katy Perry, The Rolling Stones, The Cure, Elvis and maybe some George Ezra! These titans of tweed, maestro’s of this mini musical marvel offer a feast of festival fun!


Website
LATE NIGHT MARAUDERS

LATE NIGHT MARAUDERS

Late Night Marauders are led by whirlwind soulstress Ruthie Scott and the piano wizardry of James Wood. Raised on a steady diet of classic RnB and jazz standards Ruthie developed a deep love for Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Etta James and Tom Waits to name a few. Hooking up with James their songs evoke visions of smokey basement clubs in the 1950’s where beatniks and jazzheads would party. Add in a savvy rhythm section and a firing horn section and the Late Night Marauders present a unique blend of soul, R’n’B and boogie which is an irrepressible delight.


Website
DAN WEBSTER BAND

DAN WEBSTER BAND

Popular Yorkshire based singer-songwriter Dan Webster is a maverick in the folk music world, influenced by sounds and storytelling of American and British traditions, Americana and Rock and Roll. Dan has three albums to his credit; the latest hitting number 3 in Amazon’s Folk Chart. Live, he inspires attention; pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics – delivered with a powerful, and honest vocal.

Website
BOSS CAINE

BOSS CAINE

Boss Caine is the main musical vehicle of hard living, permanently gigging, story telling, troubadouring, award winning, UK singer songwriter, Daniel Lucas. Like Tom Waits singing Ryan Adams if they had both had the good fortune to grow up in Yorkshire.

THE VENUE

The Old Station, which opened October 4th 1847, was designed by George Townsend Andrews and is a Grade II listed building. It closed on November 27th 1965 when the York to Beverley line was discontinued.

Pocklington is a small market town and civil parish situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire, approximately 13 miles (21 km) east of York. The town’s skyline is dominated by a 15th-century tower of All Saints church. The town’s architecture is a mixture of quaint old houses and modern buildings and the town has several unusual street names reflecting its history from the Iron Age onwards.
