MY DARLING CLEMENTINE – Saturday 27 January 2018

Why don’t we form a band?” said the husband.

Why don’t you empty the dishwasher?” said the wife.

For what began as something of a side project in 2011 for husband and wife Michael Weston King & Lou Dalgleish, My Darling Clementine is now very much centre stage with 3 albums, over 400 shows across Europe and N. America, some ingenious musical collaborations, accolades and awards, and an ever growing fan base with a genuine love of their music.

Their new album Still Testifying is receiving rave reviews. Bob Harris called it “a triumph” whilst UnCut Magazine described it as “where gospel, country and Southern soul happily collide. Terrific.

Now, the King and Queen of UK country are heading to the Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue on Saturday 27 January 2018 as part of their national tour for what promises to be another unforgettable night.

If you saw them here at the Heritage Mill last year you’ll remember what a special night we had.
