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.

Lancastrian trio Harp & a Monkey are Martin Purdy (vocals, glockenspiel, accordion, harmonica and keyboards), Simon Jones (harp, guitar, viola) and Andy Smith (banjo, melodica, guitar and programming).
Their latest album, The Victorians, was released in November 2019 and features a collection of street, parlour, work, popular and rural songs from the Victorian era that the trio reworked for contemporary ears. It includes tales of naked life-savers, bare-knuckle boxers, evolutionary moths and wife auctions and was mixed by Darren Jones - the go-to studio engineer for the likes of Stormzy.

Gigspanner are making their Reeth debut.
In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write "Gigspanner are pushing at the boundaries, expanding the possibilities and in the process making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer"
They have been described by Folk Radio UK as one of the most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond, and by Songlines as "another milestone in folk's rebirth of cool".
Taking self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, Gigspanner produce richly atmospheric arrangements with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator Spiral Earth
