Since issuing their superb Songs of The Hollow album in 2017, Cua have gone on to become a band that has gathered in more praise than most from all the best sections of the media.

Reviewing them at AmericanaUK, top writer Jeremy Searle said: This Irish trio stands right at the forefront of contemporary cutting-edge folk and even that description sells it a little short.

Issuing a similar judgement for Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper had this to say: At its finest, music should confound and amaze the listener, and this trio from Ireland have the luck and the ability to be one of those outfits who can pull this off.

Folkwords said, rightly: Unlike anything else.

They caused a sensation when they attracted a capacity crowd to their Celtic Connections show in Glasgow, just before the pandemic struck. It was the first event on the entire programme to become sold-out.

If any confirmation of their popularity was needed, that came in 2021 when they issued a promo video that featured the track, Kings and Queens from their debut album. In the space of five days, it had been viewed more than ten thousand times.

Folk Radio UK said: If cua are not on your radar, then they should be.

Dolly Parton - The Rags To Rhinestones Story


Covid precautions: Please note - the Hall will be ventilated. No refreshments will be served, please bring your own drinks if required. Due to the size of the hall we will be unable to observe social distancing but audience members are encouraged to wear masks if able to do so.
NB: Current Government guidelines will be followed and these may change at short notice.

The Rags to Rhinestones Story is a smash hit dynamic theatre production that is widely accepted as the World's foremost tribute show to Dolly Parton. It is performed by the award-winning Miss Julia Martin, who in 2018 & 2019 was presented with the accolade of the UK's No1 Dolly Parton tribute by the National Tribute Music Awards (NTMA). The show has been described by audiences as totally authentic in every way, and not only captures Dolly's incredible stage presence, mannerisms, charisma and unique comedy one-liners, but also delivers a spectacular evening of entertainment, that no true Dolly fan will want to miss.

In 2014 with a record audience of 200,000 and a BBC audience of 2.6 million, Dolly Parton became the Queen of Glastonbury, and a whole new generation of Dolly fans was born. In celebration to this performance, part two of this show will be dedicated to Dolly's Glastonbury performance, where Julia, wearing a white rhinestone studded trouser suit, struts across every inch of the stage, quite simply redefining the word crowdpleaser, with a performance of foot stomping, clap-along scintillating music, entertainment and banter, guaranteed to enthral the audience from start to finish.

With a combination of stunning sequined Dolly costumes, audience interaction, flashing tambourines, classic hit songs, and vocals direct from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, The Rags to Rhinestones Story not only brings-to-life the inspirational story of Dolly Rebecca Parton, but also takes the audience on a musical journey through the outstanding singing and film career of this Country Hall of Fame Legend. With meticulous attention to detail, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a show that makes you feel that Dolly herself is actually in the room.

The Fourmost

The Fourmost

We are delighted to welcome The Fourmost to Reeth Memorial Hall for their Swaledale debut.

The Fourmost were part of the 1960s Mersey Beat boom and came out of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and others.

The band has evolved from enjoying 60's chart hits such as A Little Loving (no.6), Hello Little Girl (no.9), I'm In Love (17), Baby I Need Your Lovin (24) and Girls Girls Girls (33).

Since the mid 80s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 60s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatres, clubs and 60s festivals to a diverse fan base.

The Fourmost have been continually active since forming as the Four Jays in 1959. The personnel may have changed over the years but the sound and look of the band have remained the same. They are one of the most authentic 60s bands on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian-made slim-fitted suits and Cuban heel boots.

Put on your dancing shoes or sit back and enjoy.

Maddy Prior In Concert

Other Roads

Other Roads

One of the finest of the UK's contemporary folk bands, the trio Other Roads make a welcome return to Reeth Memorial Hall. Regular, continuous touring across Europe and 'down under' in New Zealand has given the band an ever-tighter sound and stage presence.

PETE ABBOTT is a highly regarded and respected singer/songwriter & guitarist. Pete is the driving force behind the band and leads from the front, bringing to the performances his own relaxed and confident style. Whilst being a seasoned solo artiste, his sheer enjoyment of sharing the stage with two great musicians and friends is there for all to see, and that enjoyment is transmitted to the audience in abundance. The emphasis of Pete's performances is always on entertainment, ensuring that the band not only deliver high class musicianship but also a good time for their audience.

GREGOR BORLAND'S fiddling heritage is definitely impressive - a student of two legends of the Scottish fiddle, Donald Riddell and Hector MacAndrew and eight times Scottish Fiddle Champion, Gregor now teaches the same style of fiddle to students all over the world and passes on the legacy to many who seek it. His pedigree as a professional fiddle player is undeniable, having toured all over the world with various high profile musicians and bands from a young age. He's equally at home on bass guitar or mandolin. The vast experience Greg has gained in music has given him a greater understanding of musical production and arrangements and he consequently takes on the role of producer and arranger for Other Roads.

DAVE WALMISLEY was born on a tobacco farm in Zimbabwe, moving to the UK at the age of 17, but still holds dear his roots in Africa. He was delighted to be asked to join Other Roads and continue his real love of getting out there and playing music! A talented multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, he adds his own touch of class to the band's arrangements bringing a great ear for harmonies as well as taking the occasional lead vocal. Dave's wonderful on-stage humour has made him a very popular member of the band.

Doors open at 7.30 for an 8pm start
