DAVE NACHMANOFF – Saturday 13 October 2018

Thirty-one years ago, singer-songwriter Dave Nachmanoff saw Al “Year of the Cat” Stewart live for the first time at Royal Albert Hall in London; ten years ago, he came back to that same venue and performed with Stewart. In 2016, he reassembled the core band from the Year of the Cat album — including occasional Pink Floyd collaborator Tim Renwick and smooth jazz superstar Peter White — and enlisted their musical prowess in support of his latest release, Spinoza’s Dream.

Growing up in the shadow of the nation’s capital, Nachmanoff cut his musical teeth on Pete Seeger, country rock, the Kingston Trio’s early revival folk, and ‘80s new wave, all melded with a soupçon of Brit folk a la Fairport Convention, John Martyn, and Ralph McTell. In fact, Spinoza’s Dream producer Martin Levan had a guiding hand in both Martyn’s Grace and Danger and McTell’s Water of Dreams, two critically-acclaimed classics of the genre.
Over the course of a dozen albums and countless tours, he has shared the stage with the likes of Alison Krauss, Cheryl Wheeler, Steve Forbert, Firefall, and John Wesley Harding (among many others), at venues ranging from The Bottom Line to the Glastonbury Festival. He’s also paid his dues in myriad classrooms across the United States, sharing his talents and nurturing the next generation of budding troubadours.

WINTER WILSON – Saturday 24 November 2018

Following on from their 2018 tour with the legendary Fairport Convention we are delighted to welcome Winter Wilson to the mill.

Winter Wilson’s current tour showcases their latest album “Far Off on the Horizon”, the follow up to “Ashes & Dust”. Their 2014 release – “Cutting Free” – made the Daily Telegraph’s ten recommended folk albums of the year.

Having honed their craft during many years as semi-professional musicians, the duo went full time in 2012 and haven’t looked back since. They have a fine repertoire of self-penned songs, telling stories of everyday life which often reflect the bigger picture of this life we lead. (“Songs for local heroes,” as one punter said.)

Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) is one of the finest singers on the circuit, expressing power and emotion in equal measure “from melting to belting”.

Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar and banjo) is amongst the top tier of British song writers, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats”.

But it’s in live performance that Winter Wilson really excel, bringing a sense of intimacy to every stage, welcoming audiences into their world, mixing songs with stories of life on the road. “This isn’t a performance – it’s a domestic!”

Tight harmonies, killer songs and a lot of fun – that’s Winter Wilson.

THE JON PALMER BAND IN CONCERT – Saturday 15 December 2018

Start celebrating Christmas early when the fabulous Jon Palmer Acoustic Band visit the mill on Staurday 15 December 2018. The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band is a high energy 6-piece folk, roots and rock-n-roll combo (based in-and-around the musically vibrant West Yorkshire market town of Otley) and best described as “a cross between The Pogues and The Oyster Band, with a bit of The Waterboys, The Saw Doctors and the Bruce Springsteen Seeger Sessions Band thrown in”.

With the release in 2017 of their album “The Silences In Between” the band received their second consecutive 5 Star review from RnR (R2) Magazine.

“The best upbeat folk band around”: Yorkshire Gig Guide.

Here’s the band playing the Fairport classic, Meet On The Ledge.
