Culture Train 2019 Comes to Bridlington

Culture Train 2019 Comes to Bridlington

Published by Jon Burke at 8:02am 24th August 2019.

Since 2017 the Culture Train project has taken some of the top musicians from Hull out to play at locations across East Yorkshire and tonight the current tour visits the majestic Bridlington Priory.

The 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. 

During the summer musicians are also visiting St Augustine's in Hedon, All Saints in Driffield and St Mary's in Beverley.  

Over a dozen acts will be performing at these free events including the Happy Endings, Sandra's Wedding, the Quicksilver Kings, Cuba Drive, Graham Beck, Carrie Martin, Dogfinger Steve and the Chris Cooper Band.

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. Bridlington Priory has been identified as a one of the most spectacular and atmospheric settings throughout the region.

Tonight, there will be four acts performing for free at the Priory from around 7.30pm  This comprises of Bridlington Singer Songwriter Jack Parker, Urban Rain, Rich & Lou's Loudhailer and headliners, Pavey Ark.

Pavey Ark are an alt-folk band from Hull. Atmospheric vocals and violins glide over fingerpicked guitar, melodic bass and complex percussion. The result is a lush folk-inspired sound that has established the band as one of the must see acts in their region. They have played major UK festivals, including Glastonbury and
Cornbury, also headlining the Festival 8 woodland stage.

The Unsigned Guide included the band in their 2018 'Ones To Watch' list, with just seven other UK acts. Hidden Hills was also shortlisted in Amazing Radio's song of 2017 poll.

Rich and Lou's Loudhailer play high energy acoustic songs, sci fi, road songs, history, heroines, love and murder, Rich & Lou Duffy-Howard are also part of the Psychedelic rock band the Loudhailer Electric Company. Lou was also the bass player of the legendary Hull band the Red Guitars who had several hit indie singles in the 1980's and toured with the Smiths.

Urban Rain's sound is best described as melodic and funky with a soulful edge - unique with wide appeal. Their shared love of hooky songs with strong vocal harmonies is a feature of their music.

Starting off the show at 7.30pm is Bridlington star Jack Parker. Described as one of Hull's most innovative artists (Soundsphere Magazine), Yorkshire-born singer-songwriter Jack Parker has been captivating audiences across the UK and Europe. Jack combines his honest, singer-songwriter style and powerful, emotion-driven lyrics with the latest live technology to deliver a live show that is touching, engaging, and cutting edge.

Over the past few years, Jack has toured the UK and made festival appearances across Europe; with concerts in Portugal, Holland and Spain to name but a few. As well as delivering captivating live shows, Jack recently released his latest EP, Wild; a burst of fun, excitement and style, whilst retaining those emotional undertones that gently pull at the heartstrings.

The Culture Train evening at Bridlington Priory is free but refreshments, including alcohol will be available on the evening and any donations to the church would be appreciated. This will be the finale of the year and another fantastic evening is expected, as the Culture Train tour brings great acoustic musicians to some of the regions greatest churches.
