Blues, Folk & Jazz in Thirsk

Sax man Snake Davis is in Thirsk on Fri 4 Oct with his almost acoustic line-up “Burden of Paradise” intimate concert. Snake played the sax solo on Take That’s “Million Love Songs”, Lisa Stansfields hits, M-Peoples hits and was part of the most recent Eurythmics world tour. BoP was formed seven years ago with three of his very favourite musician friends. Breathtaking skill, warm co-operation and witty anarchic banter. BoP invites its audience into a world of tenderness, virtuosity and human frailty.

No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass and guitar. BoP’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding. We are all in paradise, if only we knew it. The burden is to accept it.

What exactly is the BoP’s secret? A stylish blend of precisely 47% blues, 35% folk and 18% jazz. "There's no arguing with claims citing Helen Watson as one of the country's premier jazz blues singers." - Live review from Ronnie Scotts. “Snake Davis has one of the most passionate sax styles and simple bluesy approaches a-la-Sanborn heard in these isles for a while” - Time Out.

Tickets are now available at Thirsk Tourist Information. https://www.snakedavis.rocks

Cycling at its best

On Wed 25 Sep Northallerton will be hosting the start of one of the most prestigious events of the UCI Road World Championships - the Men Elite Time Trial. The day will see cyclists set off from the High Street before racing out to Bedale on their way to the finish line in Harrogate. The first rider will leave about 1.10pm with others following, right up to almost 3pm. This is truly world class sport on our doorstep.

The championships which take place from 21–29 September will bring in thousands of riders and their crews across the nine days of races. It will also feature a para-cycle race around Harrogate for the first time in its history. Starts also go from Beverley, Bradford, Doncaster, Harrogate, Leeds, Ripon, Richmond, Tadcaster and Wetherby with all the races finishing in Harrogate.

Be aware of temporary road closures resulting in delays over much of Yorkshire and non-collection of any bins in Hambleton on Wed 25 Sep. Collections for the rest of that week will be one day late on Thu to Sat.
