A “Silsden Live” Event

Jo Harman Trio

+ Serious Sam Barrett

Saturday, 25th January 2020 – bar opens 6.30pm, music 7.30pm

Widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest ever soul and blues fuelled voices, Jo Harman is an international touring and recording artist who remains a genre-defying, independently minded artist of rare credibility. An artist who makes sincere and heartfelt music, The Mirror proclaimed her ‘UK’s finest female soul blues voice’  and who, according to Classic Rock, writes ‘lip-biting beautiful songs’.

Jo released her second studio album People We Become to much critical acclaim, and the multi award winning/nominated performer, has achieved considerable success at home and abroad, headlining prestigious venues and festivals throughout Europe and beyond.

Rag ‘N’ Bone Man recently took to social media to proclaim her ‘one of this country’s finest talents’ , and soul super star Michael McDonald advised ‘hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience’.

Serious Sam Barrett plays a mixture of traditional and original material but his recorded output has mainly focussed on his own compositions especially in his later works. His style builds on folk music from the British Isles, Ireland, traditional American music as well as more contemporary styles of Rock n Roll and 50s pop music. Sam mainly plays a 12 string guitar although he also has made many recording playing banjo and occasionally electric guitar. “Songs that rattle with the ghosts of Appalachian folk, and southern blues, yet sound emphatically English” (UNCUT MAGAZINE).

What Do You Want From Silsden Town Hall?

 

The Friends of Silsden Town Hall is a small charity that from April 2019 is running the Town Hall in Silsden.

One of the first things we wanted to do was ask Silsden Residents what things and activities they wanted in the Town Hall.

242 residents contributed their ideas and opposite is the summary of the things mentioned to the Friends.

In May 2018, we discovered what you wanted. But as time passes, you may come up with new ideas. So please get in touch with us with your ideas.

The Town Hall is a brilliant space. It is OUR space in Silsden. And it is for all residents. Whatever age, however long you have lived in Silsden.
