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.

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.

They have featured at numerous festivals including headlining the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury.

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.”

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.
