Pete Morton, Maggie Boyle and
The Waterside Room, Hebden Bridge Town Hall
8pm to 10.30pm
Pete Morton: vocal, guitar. ‘not only impressive but a
revelation......totally original’ (The Guardian)
Maggie Boyle: vocal, flute, bodhran. ‘a voice the
angels would kill for’ (Rock ‘n Reel)
Chris Parkinson: accordion, harmonica, vocal.
‘probably the best accordionist in the world …and
he’s touring with us!’ (Maggie and Pete)
This is a high-flying combination: a singer/
songwriter extraordinaire, a superb traditional
singer and one of the folk scene’s most sought-after
instrumentalists. Pete, Maggie & Chris all excel in
their own departments. Together they deliver a richly
textured collection of vibrant new songs, beautiful
old songs and stunning instrumentals – plus all three
voices in three-part harmony... and they have a great
time doing it. Superb acoustic music!
Little Theatre, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
7.30pm to 9.30pm
First Night Special - Pay What You Want
Six successful writers based in Hebden Bridge
experiment with writing short plays for the theatre.
Fantastically varied in tone, style and subject matter
these pieces pack more wit, drama, and energy into
fifteen minutes than most full-length West End pieces
can manage. Featuring a full professional cast –
including some very famous faces – Hebden Shorts shows the surprising things that can happen when
novelists, TV writers and radio dramatists get the
chance to work with live performance.
Hebden Shorts will also be performed on Thursday 8 July is Pay What You Want and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on the door on the night. Doors will open at 7pm.
Tickets £10 (£8)
