Sax Sundays – a new project for Ropery Hall
The first Sunday of every month at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall is now given over to Sax Sundays – a rare opportunity to see sax supremo Snake Davis link up with some of his favourite musicians.
The Maltkiln Road setting, Snake’s favourite local venue, is hosting these evenings which promise exceptional music interspersed with chat.
Snake’s first guest is bass virtuoso Simon Goulding who has been working as a professional session musician since the age of 16 and has performed, toured and recorded with a range of major artists including The Bee Gees, Robbie Williams, Ronan Keating, The Temptations, The Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Drifters, The Four Tops, The Three Degrees, The Snake Davis Band, Neil Sedaka, Clare Teal, and The Joe Loss Orchestra, among many others.
“This Goulding – Davis duo is an absolute world premiere,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “It is a true first for our inaugural Sax Sunday.”
“As well as wonderful music the audience can expect anecdotes, conversations and exceptional musicianship,” she continued.
The season continues in March 5 with guest Helen Watson who forms one third of Burden of Paradise who played at Ropery Hall in January.
Tickets to see Snake and Simon perform on February 5 starting at 7.30pm, half an hour earlier than usual for music gigs, cost £13 in advance or £15 on the door and can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 10652 660380.
