Nick's single - buy it this week for the chart placing!

Hi folks! Nick's single release of 'Undertow' (a different version from the one on Songs From the Shore) is out now on iTunes and other download sites. If you buy it this week it will help it's chart placing!!

Follow the link on the side of the page to Nick's solo website and all the appropriate links, etc. will be there. If you buy the song on its own it's very cheap (a matter of pence) but you can also buy it as a package with Hurts Like Hell, Patching Up My Soul and The Man Apart.


(PS: Hi to everyone who was at the Hardraw Gathering. What a great weekend! A few people were taking photos and video-ing, so will post again when any of that's available.)

michelle plum & nick b hall support peter tork tomorrow


Peter Tork of The Monkees is making a one-off stop at Otley Civic Centre to talk about his time in The Monkees and to play some of their hits. It's a solo gig and a very rare event. Peter is over in Europe for several festival dates.
Because he's staying in the North of England we've decided to put on this special gig at very short notice. There are 200 tickets available on the door (at 7.30pm) plus some advance from Jumbo Records, (0113 245 5570) Leeds or Waye & Son Travel Agents (01943 463244) in Otley.
When you think about it, this International star of stage and screen is just about the biggest name ever to have appeared in Otley. Can anyone say different?
