Join the Phil Langran Band at the Canalside Heritage Centre for a fantastic evening of folk, blues and original songs. Phil's songs are a powerful combination of immediacy and slow-burning subtlety. The melodies instantly take up residence in the mind while the lyrics pack a considerable emotional punch. Phil is not only a fine musician but also a writer steeped in the poetic traditions of Robert Lowell and Langston Hughes. The result is a brilliant intertwining of Americana, Celtic, folk and blues themes in distinctive original songs.

Phil is joined on stage by a band of incredibly talented musicians including; Steve Benford - acoustic guitar, banjo, vocals; Mark Walker - fretless bass, vocals; Frank McCarthy - electric guitar, vocals; and Pippa Marland - saxophones, Irish whistles, vocals.

The concert starts at 7pm prompt (doors open at 6pm). Refreshments available before and during the interval. Tickets are £8 each must be booked in advance and can purchased by visiting the Heritage Centre or calling 0115 9221773.
