Sir Roger de Beverley session at the Cross Keys, Knaresborough (14) session at the Cross Keys, Knaresborough 04 Jan 14


The Cross Keys pub in Knaresborough has a new landlord (Alan) since the end of November and he is keen to promote music in the pub he is the singer with a ska band himself. Anyway, he has set up the arrangements for an acoustic night every Tuesday evening at 8.30pm starting from January 14th. I haven't been involved with organising it but have agreed to be one of the rolling rota of hosts once a month on the second Tuesday of the month starting with February 11th. I am away or otherwise committed for most of January so won't get to go to one myself as a player until Feb 4th.

I don't know how folky it will be on the other weeks but I hope to attract a good mixed crowd for my monthly stint and intend to turn up to some of the other ones to see how it pans out. It will be great for me if it does become established as I seem to have to travel some distance to do any playing at the moment and it would be nice to be able to reinstate the tradition in the Knaresborough/Harrogate area. Apologies for the clash with the tunes sessioneers at the Tap and Spile in Harrogate and the open mic in Beverley but, as I say, I had no hand in the arrangements.

The Cross Keys details are:

The Cross Keys
Cheapside
Knaresborough
North Yorkshire
HG5 8AX
Tel 01423 863562

It is owned by the Ossett Brewery and has a good range of real ales from their own brews and others. For my session I have made arrangements for performers to receive a free drink from the landlord.

I hope that you can come and try this out either on my week or any of the others it would be good to have a lively first night anyway.

Cheers

Roger
