The Culture Train Tour 2022 will once again bring a taste of the Hull music scene to St Mary's , Beverley on Saturday September 3rd.
The project once again funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council's 'Active Creative' arts fund takes established musicians to play to a wide range of communities across East Yorkshire and during 2022 this includes dates at Cottingham, Howden, Hedon, Driffield and Beverley. .
The final date of this year's tour brings musicians to play at St Mary's once again on Saturday 3rd September with a line up of the Arkut Brothers, Emma Fee, Carrie Martin and the Infidels
These are four acclaimed acoustic acts and a large crowd is expected for the free concert on the Saturday evening.
The Arkut Brothers are now gathering great attention locally for their new country style and great harmonies. Emma Fee is a very talented singer songwriter who has performed previously at St Mary's within the band Happy Endings. She will perform a solo slot at this event as Emma has also recorded and appeared in many events on her own over the years and this will be an opportunity to hear her other songs in this fantastic setting. Carrie Martin is a fantastic performer who has performed nationally and internationally over several years and is as much renowned for her guitar skills as well as her acoustic songs. The Infidels are a relatively new Hull band featuring some established Hull musicians and are making waves with their catchy soulful tunes.
The first band will be on for 7.30 pm so people are advised to come early. The event is free so come along and enjoy a taste of the Hull music scene.
