Steve Knightley, award winning 'Show of Hands' frontman has been touring since January 2014 with his "Grow Your Own Gig" project. He has now taken his original songs about rural life to over 100 unique venues from Cornwall to the Borders. There is an extremely large hatful of great songs that Steve has written and will no doubt pick from over the two sets in the evening - so, note there is no support act on this night. Mr Kite is delighted to host one of the last nights of this tour. Chorley, here he comes.


'The Other Half' featuring Mark Billingham with My Darling Clementine

Award-winning crime-writer Mark Billingham and leading country duo My Darling Clementine come together to present a dark and glorious mix of song and story. A rundown Memphis bar. Lust, murder and domestic horror. That long and difficult search for 'The Other Half'.
Mark Billingham has come to the fore with his crime fiction and, particularly, a series of crime novels featuring London-based detective Tom Thorne. The latter led to an acclaimed television series based on the Thorne novels being screened on Sky One starring David Morrissey as Tom Thorne. As a big fan of music, Mark fell naturally into 'The Other Half' with My Darling Clementine whose Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish are a modern day classic duo in the mould of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner, Johnny Cash and June Carter and many more.
A unique collaboration between leading lights of crime fiction and country music ...... a show to die for.

Two of the UK Acoustic/Folk scene's finest songwriters join forces for a series of concerts filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft. Ask anyone on the English acoustic scene who their favourite guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer is and nine times out of ten the same name, Steve Tilston, will crop up in the top three of every department. A similar vote would come in for Jez Lowe who has built an enviable reputation as a songwriter having songs recorded by the likes of Fairport Convention, The Unthanks, The Dubliners, The Tannahill Weavers, Cherish The Ladies, Liam Clancy and Bob Fox. This is a rare chance to see these great songwriters trade their talents together on stage.
