Great music in Otley this November

If you’re a fan of music, you’re bound to love being in Otley in November.

A packed month of events starts tonight with some 21-st century fold rock courtesy of Blackbeard’s Tea Party who are celebrating their 10th anniversary at the Courthouse tonight. See here for details.

There probably aren’t that many about who can remember it, but back in the late 1970s, the Brighouse & Rastrick Brand had a massive hit with their version of the Floral Dance (which was also a hit for Terry Wogan at the same time). The world-renowned band are appearing at the Parish Church on November 9. See here for details.

Also on Saturday 9, Jaki Graham will be treading the boards at the Courthouse. The silky-voiced chanteuse hit the charts back in the 1980s with songs such as Could It Be I’m Falling In Love (with David Grant) and Round And Round. This is a true chance to see a real legend from the British soul scene and shouldn’t be missed. See here for more

Friday November 15 sees some great West Country folk-rock with Sound of the Sirens appearing at The Black Horse. The duo are appearing at the Black Horse and it promises to be a great night. See here for more.

Another fab group from the 1980s are also appearing at the Courthouse later in the month. China Crisis, who had five top 40 singles and three top 40 albums will be performing old favourites such as African & White, Christian, Working with Fire and Steel, and Wishful Thinking on Thursday November 21. See here for details.

There are loads more acts on over the course of the month too. Check out our events calendar here
