In The Heart Of Queensbury
We are delighted that Paul Handyside is returning to the mill on Thursday 23 February 2023 as support to My Darling Clementine. Paul is a folk and roots singer songwriter, formerly of eighties indie darlings Hurrah! whose songs now fuse pop with folk-tinged americana.
Have a listen to Paul performing Deepest Love for a taste of what's in store.
We are sorry to announce that the Joseph Parsons show scheduled for Sunday 31 October has now been cancelled. Joseph was due to travel across rom Germany but, due to COVID concerns, has had to cancel his UK Tour. We hope to rearrange in the not too distant future.
A rare visit to these shores from Hothouse Flowers front man Liam Ó Maonlaí ably supported by the excellent White Sail and Jaquelyn Hynes. Liam delivered a passionate and compelling set that was engaging and memorable.
Here is what one on line review had to say: "We had a fabulous time at Black Dyke Mills seeing Liam and his friends. It was a very homely and friendly time, and the music was excellently and sensitively played with a great deal of passion."
Here is a Liam performing Magic Bracelets to a sell out crowd.
A lovely evening spent in the company of Katie Spencer. She really is an expetional talent. We also had Jennie Stabis and Harry Orme on the bill both of whom were excellent.
Here is a video, shot on the night of Katie Spencer performimg the John Martyn song Hurt In Your Heart.
Willy Tea Taylor visited the mill as part of his first ever UK tour. Song writing at its finest from this rare talent from Oakland, California. If you get the chance please check him out - it is well worth your while. Support came from local singer songwriter Chris Dover who was engaging, entertaining and enjoyable. We hope to welcome him back soon.
We welcomed world wide chart toppers The Korgis to the mill on Saturday 04 September 2021 and a great night was had by all. The 8 piece band, led by ex Stackridge legend James Warren, were on top form and played two sets of old favourites and material from their new album Kartoon World
It was a pleasure hosting the band. They were great musicians and a nice bunch of people. We hope that they will return soon.
We're sorry to announce that the Keith Thompson Band on Saturday 25 September has sadly been postponed. We hope to announce a replacement date in the near future.
We've all missed live music and our friends over the last year: Now it's time to #ComeTogether and #ReviveLive
Music Venue Trust has teamed up with The National Lottery to help to #ReviveLive music in grassroots music venues across the UK this summer with a fantastic line up of tours, one off events and special performances. And it's all about bringing friends and communities back together.
The National Lottery is supporting artists and crews to get out playing grassroots music venues in front of audiences...back where they are meant to be! You can check out the full range of events below. Bookmark this page and remember to check back regularly as shows are announced right across Summer 2021.
But live music venues aren't just about the shows. Live music is about bringing people together, celebrating that moment, that band, that song, together.
MVT and The National Lottery want to invite you to create new moments of shared experience with your family, friends and communities, because we understand the important role music plays in bringing people together. So for every National Lottery Revive Live Tour event, we are inviting every ticket holder to bring a plus one FOR FREE!
All you need to do to qualify for this offer is to show proof that one of you is a National Lottery player, either by showing us a physical lottery ticket, or one within your National Lottery app.
Book one ticket, invite one friend, bring one proof of being a National Lottery player, and get two tickets for the price of one. Every ticket, every show!
Who is the person you have missed going to gigs with the most? Who is the person you want to celebrate the return of live music with? Secure your ticket and let us know on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #ReviveLive and #ComeTogether
Work continues on our kitchen refurbishment. Just got to get the wall cupboards up, finish the painting and sort out some wall coverings. Next stop the Michelin star!
A great night with the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band. Jon really is a songwriter of the highest quality and has the stage presence to match. The band sounded great and offered sympathetic backing to Jon's songs.
If you missed them this time they are back at the mill on the 23 July 2022.
Our first post-lockdown show! Socially distanced on a Sunday Afternoon. Support came from Robbie Cavanagh with his tales of heartbreak, loss, love and discovery. Robbie won the Bob Harris 'Emerging Artist Award' at the Americana Music Association UK Awards 2021 and it was easy to see why.
Hannah White, with her partner Keiron Marshall on guitar, delivered a fine set and sang beautifully. A splendid afternoon of music that was much appreciated by an enthusiastic audience.
