The Live Lounge- Croft Park - Little Weighton

'Fire and Rain‘ 

‘Fire and Rain’ is not a tribute or sound-a-like act.  It’s simply a collection of six of the best

musicians from the North of England coming together to play music they love.

Expect the classic James Taylor songs including ‘Steamroller Blues’, ‘Shower the People’, ‘Fire and Rain’

and many other classics played with skill, passion, emotion, humour and humility.

‘Fire and Rain’ are all highly regarded musicians in their own right and include

Tom Townsend (Lead Guitar and vocals), Rich Adams (Acoustic Guitar, vocals and triangle!)

and Mark Gordon (Keyboards) Rowan Oliver (percussion) with Paul Tilley (Drums) and Bob Walker (bass).

They occasionally put their own individual musical projects aside to perform the music they love and

inspired them to perform, and to bring the joy of James Taylor’s music to you in what

they call a ‘magical musical holiday’.

Building upon the success of the last few years, and having performed at various venues from

small intimate clubs to large theatre venues  ‘Fire and Rain’ are delighted to be able to bring

this wonderful concert to the intimate surroundings of

The Live Lounge  Croft Park Cafe and Bistro  Little Weighton!

Join with them to celebrate with you the songs and music of the much loved iconic singer songwriter

James Taylor, from his earliest songs to his most recent material, in what will be

a memorable evening of first class entertainment.

Tickets are £15 each  - supper is not included in the ticket price.

A pre - concert meal can be booked direct with the Croft Park on 01482 840600

Places are limited

Steve Jinski 

Steve Jinski is a songwriter, singer, performer, musician, and music educator.

He has toured the UK, Ireland, Europe, and Scandinavia as a solo artist and as one half of the acclaimed acoustic duo

JINSKI. He has made numerous festival appearances and opened shows for David Gray, Richard Thompson,

Eddie Reader, The Proclaimers and most recently prog rock legend Rick Wakeman to name just a few. Radio and

TV appearances include BBC 1 The One Show.

Steve’s music is born of the singer songwriter tradition drawing on influences that include indie, acoustic,

blues and Americana, but still he retains his own unique voice. Playing ‘live’ Steve accompanies himself on

acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and piano. Added to the mix you’ll hear the occasional acapella tune, a wailing

harmonica, a couple of interesting cover versions, some tall tales and a positive vibe that will leave you

feeling so  glad you came to see the show.   

Steve’s solo EP ‘Hope Street’ (Lucky Smile Records/Proper Music Distribution) was released in 2021.

The record was co-produced by Steve and Dave Maughan whose previous credits include

Kathryn Williams Mercury Prize nominated album ‘Little Black Numbers’ and work with alt rockers Maximo Park.

This year, 2022 will see Steve touring the UK promoting the ‘Hope Street’ EP and a recent charity single

‘Good In The World’ the proceeds of which go to supporting Dry Water Arts Dementia Positive programmes

in the north east of England.

‘This is lovely stuff. You can hear all the love that’s gone into it’ – Bob Harris BBC Radio 2

‘So, some good things come out of lockdown’ – Iain Anderson BBC Radio Scotland

‘I love the song, love his voice and I ‘love’ the sound – Bob Lawrence Radio Caroline

‘Sincerely honest, lacking in pretension or hyperbole …

Building The House is one of the most beautiful songs of the year’

David Pratt Folk Radio (FRUK)
