Culture Train 2019 visits All Saints on July 20th 2019

July 08, 2019

A Fundraising concert will be held at All Saints Church at Driffield on Saturday 20th July as part of the 2019 Culture Train tour.

Since 2017 the Culture Train project has taken some of the top musicians from Hull out to play at locations across East Yorkshire and on project is funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Active Creative fund and began during the 2017 Hull City of Culture year to take musicians out of Hull and visit locations along the Hull to Bridlington rail line. During 2018 most towns within East Yorkshire were visited by the tour and in 2019 the project is mainly focused on playing at church locations and the tour began at a packed St Augustine's church in Hedon on June 15th.

During the summer musicians will also be performing at Driffield on July 20th  as well as visiting Bridlington Priory on August 24th , St Marys in Beverley on August 31st  and another event in the courtyard of the Lowther Hotel in Goole. On August 10th . Over a dozen acts will be performing at these  free events including the Happy Endings, Pavey Ark, Jack Conman, the Quicksilver Kings, Sandra's Wedding, Elwhaeko, Jack Parker, Dogfinger Steve and Urban Rain

The aim of the Culture Train is to take some of the best acoustic musicians from the Hull music scene to play at unusual venues or locations where there are not regular gigs.  The 2019 tour will provide free shows at church settings as well as offering the churches the opportunity to raise funds through sales of refreshments , a raffle and collections and also attract new people to visit these locations.

On Saturday July 20th there will be four acts performing at All Saints in Driffield with the doors opening at 7pm and first act at 7.30pm. 

This show will feature singer songwriter Jim Danby, well known Driffield musician Dogfinger Steve, the unique talents of Graham Graham Beck and headliners The Quicksilver Kings.  Dogfinger Steve is a blues musician, Graham Graham Beck has appeared on Britain's Got Talent for the past two years though his quirky songs sadly failed to impress the judges  despite the appearance of an 'Action Man with a Giraffes Head'.

The Quicksilver Kings are a very popular act on the Hull music scene with great tunes being added to the lyrics of poet Keith Hagger.

Not only will there be some of the best unsigned acts from the area this will also be fundraisers for the church themselves. The All saints evening  is free but refreshments, including alcohol will be available on the evening and any donations to the church would be appreciated.
