Special Secret Garden 10th Anniversary Party!!
Saturday 11th October 2014 8pm
It has been a wonderful summer for all of us at Letham Nights and we hope it has been for you too. As we move into the tail of the season and the weather takes on a chill and feels a bit damper, we wanted to remind you of a little bit of SHEER JOY that we have in store for you come October. By then the nights will be well drawn-in but open the doors of Letham Village Hall on Saturday 11th October and you will step into the light and warmth of yet another wonderful night of superlative music because once again we have booked a truly exceptional act: Manchester’s finest folkrock superhumans, The Travelling Band.
The band have received widespread critical acclaim from the UK music press including Marc Riley who featured them as ‘Album of the Week’ on 6 Music with their “shimmering blend of cosmiccountrypop” (his words!) as well as winning the Glastonbury new talent award in 2008. As I write this blog, their new album ‘The Big Defreeze’ is about to be released and I am streaming it live from a feature in the August edition of Q Magazine. It is an ear-caressing, uplifting work of genius! And now they are coming to the village – Woohoo!!
We think 2014 could well be the year that sees The Travelling Band really cement their place as the true champions of blissful cosmicpop. They really are great on record and according to fellow organisers Roy and Claire, who went to see them in Manchester, they are outstanding onstage too. If you haven’t got down with The Travelling Band yet, now is the time and in our wonderful Letham Nights setting. Do it! – before they disappear onto much larger stages.
We are also delighted to announce that this event will be the official 10th Anniversary Party of our fantastic community outdoor nursery, The Secret Garden. The grown-ups in the Secret Garden Community have decided to get the babysitters in, put on their dancing shoes and their glad-rags and head on down to the hall for a full-on celebration of their fantastic achievement. That means tickets are going to be at a premium, so get in early!
Support Act to be announced… (that’s going to be an exciting one too!)
