Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour

Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour

Fri, 12 Oct 2018 20:00

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Félix Rabin will be appearing as special guest on the upcoming Wishbone Ash XLIX UK tour

The great news for live music lovers, rock fans and aspiring musicians in Yorkshire, is that there will be three shows in the county; the first at the Pavilion Theatre inWhitbyon Friday 12th October, the second at Leeds Irish Centre on Wednesday 31st October and third at The Picturedrome in Holmfirth on Friday 16th November!

The French 23 year old singer-songwriter and guitarist was inspired by musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Pink Floyd...his style embodies these influences and blends contemporary Rock in many of its guiseswith inventive riffs and moody melodies. Loving music as long as he can recall, the desire to play came suddenly and when Félix picked up his first guitar at 15...this is where the story began

After touring around France, playing several times at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland where he was born and lived since childhood, Félix is now ready to take his music and open doors in new territories and fortunately, one of these is the UK!

Given the amazing response he has received after only a handful of appearances in this country, he says; "As a French guy, I really can feel that music is much more into the culture of English people - I mean you can feel that Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Wishbone Ash and all the other great ones come from here !"

As "special guest" on the Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour he will be playing at 28 of the 31 shows with his band throughout October & November this year. On his presence on this tour, Wishbone Ash says "We are delighted to have French artist Félix Rabin featuring as special guest on our upcoming XLIX UK tour".In response to this Félix states; "Extremely excited to be part of this adventure with such a legendary band. I feel very honoured and can't wait to hit the road, hoping to be a great discovery for the UK audience!"

Whitby in the time of Cook Exhibit Closes

Sun, 04 Nov 2018 10:20

Today Whitby is generally thought of as a pretty seaside town with many historic connections.

How different it was in the 18th century! Cook could not have come to a better place and was immensely fortunate in the training he received there. Here he was exposed to impressive models of success, amibition, training and behaviour.

It was a town in the middle of a shipbuilding and shipping boom. There were opportunities to make careers in an exceptional seafaring environment. Boys and young men were drawn from miles around by the quality of training available. Training was strictly practical with the emphasis on professional and vocational skills.

It was also an outward looking place, well connected by sea to the towns of North East, to London and to the Baltic. The young Cook himself travelled as far as St. Petersburgh in 1750.

The exhibition covers some of the key aspects of the town and examines the lives of key men who helped to shape it, such as Abel Chapman (1694-1777), entrepreneur and shipowner, and Lionel Charlton (1720-1788), teacher of mathematics, surveyor and author of the history of the town.
