Fire and Rain is not a tribute or sound-a-like act. It's simply a collection of five of the best musicians from the North of England coming together to play music they love. Expect the classic James Taylor & Carole King songs played with skill, passion, emotion, humour and humility. Incredibly in-demand musicians in their own right, Tom Townsend (The Tom Townsend Blues Band) Rich Adams & Mark Gordon (Stony), Paul Tilley and Bob Walker abandon their usual bands and projects for this one-off tour to bring the joy of Taylor & King's music to you in what they call a 'magical musical holiday'.

Gracie is an award winning singer and songwriter in her own right, and she will be accompanied by the wonderful guitarist Alex Staples.

A gathering of musical talent it would be very hard to beat.'
Dogfinger Steve opens proceedings with his self penned, stompin' cigar box guitar toons performed with passion and their very own brand of originality.
Carrie Martin next up: Hers is a true story of rags to well, not quite riches maybe, but certainly success and critical acclaim in the world of contemporary acoustic-?based folk/rock music.
Edwina Haye's beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing stages everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall.
Jon Palmer and Wendy Ross may be a truncated version of the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band but they perform the same soaring, uplifting songs. Jon is a former winner of the Grolsch UK Songwriter of the Year, and a published songwriter with Sony.

Little Moscow are a cracking band; a bunch of lads who just love rock music and have played together since they were kids.
Kev McNestry and Si Harrison on Guitar and Vocals, Joe McNestry on Bass and Si King on Drums.
Come 2018, they got it back together again as Iván Diaz joined the family on violin and drums.
In the meantime, Si has become Si King of Hairy Bikers fame, and now rocks out on vocals, percussion and drums. The rest is legend.
Now, thirty-something years on, they are touring the UK, playing better than ever! Little Moscow are a band from the North East covering classic and contemporary rock from artists such as Bon Jovi, Neil Young, The Doobie Brothers, The Waterboys and many more.
As a wide-eyed kid dreaming of rock and roll glory, Si King's teenage years revolved around music, mates and food. Fast-forward four decades and all three still dominate a crazy schedule that includes multiple television series, radio commitments and joining his bandmates for a weekly jam.
The band went down a storm at last summer's Cornbury Festival alongside UB40, Squeeze and Alanis Morissette and the post-gig consensus was that there's never been a better time to take a belated shot at the big time.
Having swapped chopsticks for drumsticks Si King saysIt's a bit like a midlife crisis,a midlife crisis that's hung over since we were about 40! We're basically just a bunch of mates who have got back together and we're going to have a bit of fun and see where it takes us.

Back in Black, Rosie, Highway to hell, the songs go on and on until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing..we salute you !!
