Dan Webster Band @ The Snickleway Inn
Dec 12 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm
Dan Webster Band @ The Snickleway Inn | England | United Kingdom

Dan Webster is described as ‘one of the U.K’s best kept musical secrets and one not to miss!’ and an ‘An insightful lyricist with a great voice’ Acoustic Magazine. According to Americana UK – ‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville – beautiful – he is Anglicana’. Dan is a road seasoned English singer-songwriter, his music is influenced by the sounds and storytelling traditions of American and British Folk music, which he uniquely blends into his own distinct fusion of Folk and Americana.

Dan’s second album release DIAMOND LAND (2008) received a number of plays on BBC Radio 2 and was well received critically in the press. His 2012 single release Frank Dalton was nominated for Fatea magazine’s track of the year and the press were unanimous about his 2015 release THE TIN MAN.
“THE TIN MAN will make it on to a fair few ‘Best Of’ lists, and deservedly so.” Maverick Magazine ****
“Mixing folk, country and even a little rock ‘n’ roll, all delivered with a clear, distinctive voice, some great playing and an immaculate sound, it stopped me in my tracks.” Folk Radio UK – The Tin Man – featured album Feb 2015
“The Tin Man may forever be in search of a heart on the road, Dan Webster has it in abundance and it shows with each passing song on his latest album.” Liverpool Sound and Vision ****
‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville – beautiful, a malleable mash of folk, country and Alt rock.’ Americana UK 9/10
“His delivery is passionate, this album boasts a big, big heart.” Folk Radio UK
Dan is a formidable live performer, having played too many shows to count over the years, and has shared the bill with acts such as The Levellers, Seth Lakeman, Glen Tilbrook, Martin Carthy and Midge Ure to name a few. Live, Dan inspires attention; pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics – delivered with a powerful and honest vocal…fantastic solo, or with his band.
As well as a recording artist, Dan is increasingly recognised as a producer working with several rising stars of the roots scene including Joshua Burnell, Fran Wyburn and Rachel Croft.

York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir @ The Snickleway Inn
Dec 16 @ 9:30 pm
York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir @ The Snickleway Inn | England | United Kingdom

The ‘Phil’, as the choir is affectionately known, plays a significant part in the rich musical fabric of York. The choir loves to sing, and the passion, commitment, and continuity that has sustained since it was founded in 1925 is very much in evidence today. The story of the choir has been beautifully documented in the book Sound Fellows by choir member Colin Hockridge currently available from Amazon, click here to purchase.
