Advance ticket sale for this event have ended. A limited number of £10 tickets will be available on the door.
Strong melodies, catchy sing-along choruses and intelligent lyrics,
are the trademark of songs composed and performed by local singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Den Miller.
Den is an engaging and entertaining live performer,
delivering his music and his message with clarity, energy and a good deal of humour.
His latest album "Join All The Dots" presents a quirky
outlook on modern life's issues and challenges,
including relationships, parenting, war and terrorism.
Den shares an unusual viewpoint that entertains and
is thought-provoking, to make connections between
situations and events that seem to be unconnected.
During his gigs you can expect songs
"from wildly comic to deeply poignant", backed by guitar, keyboard, harmonica, autoharp and, often, the audience.
Support from Mike and Helen Hockenhull
Mike and Helen have been singing together as a married couple since 1983.
During that time they have also been involved in separate musical groups.
Helen sang with a female trio Grace Notes for twenty two years and
Mike sang with a male trio, INPO. During the early days of the
Folk Revival Helen performed with Muckram Wakes which
included John Tams, Roger Watson, and later with John
and Suzie Adams. They also teamed up with Pete and
Chris Coe to form The New Victory Band. Mike was the
sound engineer for this band.
They are regular singers at Baccapipes Folk Club in Keighley
and sing a mixture of English and American traditional
and contemporary folk songs. Mike plays guitar,
fiddle and banjo and Helen plays concertina and mandolin.
