Difford is taking a break from the build-up to a major reunion tour in 2017 by this classic British group which is receiving sold out notices already.

Harrogate's role in the music industry has received a real shot in the arm in the last six months by the involvement of the famous BBC Radio 2 DJ and former presenter of the Old Grey Whistle Test.

As well as being a top notch facility where Harris now records and films a lot of his Under the Apple Tree sessions these days, the recently-opened Warehouse studios has been hosting exclusive monthly live gigs with emerging acts hand-picked and introduced by Harris himself.

Other acts Harris will be presenting at this ticket-only show to be held on Friday, January 27 will include one of his personal favourites, Robert Vincent, the Liverpool-based blues and country music singer-songwriter, and Dexter, a fast-rising countryesque band the veteran broadcaster predicts will become the next The Shires.

More acts will be announced closer to the date.

Tickets are on sale now via the studio's website.
