They make music that should get you singing, dancing and having a great time.

They rock up covers from the 60's to now.

From the Rolling Stones to Pink, Radiohead to R.E.M they cover a vast genre of songs. The common feature - you will rarely hear a local gigging band playing them.

The John Colins Band was formed when frontman Colin and guitarist John decided they were bored playing the same old tunes that other bands play so picked out some good old down to earth dancing tunes.

They invited Jonny T and Stephen T to join as the rhythm section and Stephen W as a third guitarist. His addition means Colin can come onto the dancefloor and help you have a great time interacting with the music.

Come down and see them - you will enjoy it!

Kate Rusby @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Kate Rusby

Of all the stars in Folk Music’s wondrous firmament few shine as brightly as Yorkshire’s Kate Rusby.

A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that rare ability to transport her audience, of touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination.

Kate is bringing her ever-popular Spring tour to some venues not visited for a while this year together with a few regular favourites taking in some places off the beaten track and also some smaller venues in an attempt to extend to audiences not always reached.

Audiences are sure to be thoroughly entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue stretching over her two decades of music making together with a selection of fresh new songs from her latest album Ghost (released Summer 2014). As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents.

The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. Rusby’s wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.


‘Everybody loves and respects Kate Rusby, not just for her lovely voice, but for the way she has moved folk forward while remaining true to tradition…’ Sunday Times

‘…exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit’ Daily Telegraph


£22.00.

A £1.50 per ticket booking fee applies, capped at six per order. Fee-free booking for Premiere Card Members; Groups of 10+ please call 01270 368 242 to buy fee-free.
