We present concerts in Saltburn three or four times a year. Generally, our policy is to showcase artists from the North East and Yorkshire although we are not adverse to feature those from elsewhere. As we run on a non profit basis we do need to keep costs within sensible boundaries so we do ask that any artists who contact us keep this in mind.
Our concerts are held at Saltburn Golf Club which has stunning views of Saltburn. It also boasts ample car parking and excellent disability access. Tickets for our concerts are priced at £5.00 in advance (£7.00 on the door). We operate on a not for profit basis in respect of our concerts but you can help us to break even by spreading the word to your friends and buying lots and lots of raffle tickets on the night! Tickets for our concerts can be purchased at Book Corner, Milton St. in Saltburn. Alternatively you can contact us by telephone or email (see the home page) to book tickets which can be paid for on the night of the show, or even better get them from the club on a Monday night at The Marine, Marine Parade, Saltburn whilst enjoying the club atmosphere.
For our next concert on Friday 27th September we welcome as our guests the wonderful Odette Michell (www.odettemichell.com) supported by local band Starboard. Odette is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and bouzouki player with a bold new take on the acoustic tradition and a voice capable of demonstrating the finer points of both folk and traditional song with genuine craftsmanship. Her vocal style has been described as "warm, intelligent and sitting comfortably amidst folk guitar in a timeless songwriting style" - and has been compared in similarity to the likes of Sandy Denny and Joni Mitchell. Odette's debut album "The Wildest Rose" has been gaining fabulous reviews - "With producer Stu Hanna on board comes this dulcet and very vintage debut. Phil Beer from Show of Hands adds his presence, notably on the title track's joyous crest of mandolin and fiddle. With its gallant chorus, you can mark this song to be covered by all-comers." Rock and Reel.
Tickets at the bargain price of £5 are available from 07868 115153, Book Corner Saltburn or through wegottickets.com (handling charge 50p). Don't miss the opportunity to see one of the brightest new talents to emerge on the Folk music scene in recent years.
