But organiser and hi-fi expert Colin Paine, said it was exciting to return to the turntable and Starling.

"As well as the greatest songs of The Eagles, the event will offer an insight into the how the album and the band from our resident music historian, Graham Chalmers of the Harrogate Advertiser and video slides created by Jim Dobbs,” said Colin.

"Starling is a brilliant bar and will be offering a great selection of beers and food until 9pm.”

Vinyl Sessions does not sell tickets, as such, but asks for a donation of just £5, or whatever people are comfortable giving, on entry.

That way it avoid fees so every penny goes to the charity.

The event does allow walk-ins but attendees are requested to reserve a place, so organisers have an idea of numbers to seat.
