Popular Yorkshire roots band, The Hall Brothers, celebrate 20 years of acoustic music this autumn and winter with a special anniversary concert in Robin Hood’s Bay.

The brothers, Nick and Duncan, first performed in 1991 at the Fleece in Addingham, West Yorkshire.

Since then, they have recorded several well-received albums, entertained audiences throughout Europe and the UK, and even performed with many of their musical heroes.

Now, this year, The Hall Brothers are celebrating those 20 years with a selection of friends and special guests, at The Swell.

Support comes in the form of Nick Hall’s side-project with his wife, Plumhall, as well as Wharfedale’s great singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dave Vermond.

The Hall Brothers, joined by their long-standing fiddle player John Carey, bassist Dave Mastrocola, and percussionist Chris Bunyan, will perform a full-length concert set along with their special guests at Swell, Robin Hood’s Bay, on 19 November.

Duncan Hall said: “The sets will include brand new material alongside songs and tunes that we have enjoyed playing over the last 20 years.

Nick added: “The venues we have chosen are important.

“We have played at Robin Hood’s Bay many times over the years and it is great to return to Swell, which is such an atmospheric venue.”
