As well as being a top notch facility where BBC Radio 2’s ‘Whispering Bob Harris’ now records a lot of his Under the Apple Tree sessions these days, the recently-opened new Harrogate studio Warehouse has started hosting exclusive monthly live gigs with emerging acts hand-picked and introduced by Harris himself.

The next one in this intimate setting takes place tonight Friday, November 25 with a simply stunning line-up – Dexeter, Diagrams, Tom Blackwell – all names familiar to Harris’s listeners on national radio.

Dexeter are a UK country music band that Harris himself has described as being like a "country Fleetwood Mac".

Frazer Theatre show on Saturday - Harrogate singer Holly Rose Webber.

Diagrams, meanwhile, are the latest project by Sam Genders (Ex-Tunng).

As always, the night will also showcase local talent, in this case Becky Mills, and will have the added bonus of food and drink courtesy of award-winning chef Andy Annat.

Last month’s brilliant gig at Warehouse featured amazing Harrogate singer Holly Rose Webber, Roy’s daughter, whose self-penned, emotionally-charged, melodically memorable country-flavoured brand of rock-pop went down a storm.

Holly, who has been working with three-times Grammy Award winner Ray Kennedy in Nashville on songs for her forthcoming second albm, can be seen live again romorrow, Saturday, November 26 at one of the district’s hidden gems of a venue.

Tickets for Holly Rose Webber’s concert are available via Frazer Theatre or Pear Records in Knaresborough.

Tickets for Live Music at Warehouse Recording Studios are available online at Eventbrite.
