Next week we are having a Yorkshire night with a big Yorkshire buffet and the one and only Roger Davies, an entertaining contemporary folk singer/songwriter!
The gig is on Saturday 28th July at 7:30pm, priced at £20 (buffet included).
The old saying “you can take the man out of Yorkshire but you can’t take Yorkshire out of the man” certainly applies to Roger Davies.
Like a modern day musical L.S. Lowry, Roger Davies writes songs that celebrate the places and people he has grown up with, having been born and raised in Brighouse. (The West Yorkshire town is renowned for its world famous Brighouse & Rastrick Band with whom Roger collaborated on his previous album The Busker)
Roger began to draw upon his love of Yorkshire as the inspiration for his songs while living in Brighton between 2005/2006. Here he underwent a bout of homesickness so acute he soon returned to his hometown and began composing songs such as Brighouse on Saturday Night, Huddersfield Town, Peter Brook’s Paintings, Bradford Girl, White Roses and Into the Sun which have helped Roger to establish himself as one of today’s most entertaining contemporary folk singer songwriters.
Many of Roger’s songs are set in and around his native West Yorkshire, as he explains; “I need a backdrop, a landscape in which to place my characters and stories in order to make them believable, which of course they should be because I only use true stories and real experiences as the basis for my songs in the first place.”
Come and relax with friends and family with great food and entertainment for the evening.
