EVAN Music Nights

Live music: Jilly Jarman and Mike Turnbull

Friday 10th December, 19.00

Eden Valley Artistic Network (EVAN) Music Nights are back and will take place in the Village Hall on the second Friday of each month from October to March, showcasing fantastic local music.

Mike Turnbull

Mike Turnbull is a multi-instrumentalist with the knack for writing well crafted modern folk songs with a story to tell. A singer-songwriter from the Lake District whose main instruments are tenor guitar, banjo, mandolin and octave mandola. Mike’s influences are taken from his home region of the Lakes, around the UK and beyond. Together with Suzanne Ambrose on double bass and David Pennington on cajon, they are Mike Turnbull and The Safe Kings. Solo, duo or trio, their sound and style is original modern folk ranging from melodic ballads to catchy, energetic foot stompers! “Their sound coupled with the sources of his songs suggests Seth Lakeman and, in truth, that isn’t a bad comparison. He certainly has the same drive and energy.” (Dai Jeffries)

Jilly Jarman

Jilly is a composer, artist and creative director of BlueJam Arts. Usually in front of a choir or band or behind the scenes, for this tour she is presenting a solo set of jazz standards, old favourite originals and new material from her upcoming solo album. Expect some bluesy piano and vocals with atmospheric looped instruments and effects.

Drinks can be purchased from the Kings Arms (opposite) and brought across to the Hall.

Tickets £5, available in advance from Stainton Post Office or on the door.

Only 60 tickets are available due to Covid regulations for the Hall. Mask-wearing is encouraged.
