BBC Radio 2 favourite Harriet comes to Barton’s Ropery Hall

Harriet, a beguiling British singer/songwriter, who is garnering ever-increasing international media acclaim will be performing in Barton later this month.

The gig at Ropery Hall comes after she has recently completed here debut UK tour which saw her performing to sell out venues across the country.

Harriet is already well-known to listeners of BBC Radio 2 having been championed by both Graham Norton and Paul O’Grady as well as Magic FM’s Denise Van Outen.

“She really is a glorious singer, reminiscent of Karen Carpenter,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.  “This is an evening not to be missed as she performs songs from her debut album as well as some stunning covers”.

Inspired by her dad’s record collection of music from the 60s and 70s, Harriet grew up listening to Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, ABBA, Carole King and The Beatles, amongst others and it is these influences, combined with her love for artists such as George Michael, Celine Dion and Adele,  that now form the basis of Harriet’s timeless sound.

“Harriet’s lyrical craftsmanship and beguiling voice have a spell-binding effect on all who hear her,” Liz continued.

“She will be taking her recently launched deluxe album ‘Harriet’, an epic 20-track album offering eight additional songs to the original collection including Reach, a track which consistently wows Harriet’s live audiences”.

The gig on Friday, March 23 starts at 8pm and tickets cost £20 in advance or £22 on the door and can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.

Justin Moorhouse – Northern Joker

These days Justin’s not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty – Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that’s before we begin to worry about what’s happening in America…..closer to home he’s starting to feel redundant as a parent. One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and doesn’t need much walking, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. How will he adapt if he wants to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids? Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he’d never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this was when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away….they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic.
