Snake Davies

Sax man Snake Davis (M People, Eurhythmics, Take That, Ray Charles etc) is on the road with BoP touring smaller venues in association with Rural Arts, including Whitehaven and Settle.
 

BoP (short for the Burden of Paradise) launched their “Micro Soul” album tour on the 30th April; including the Victoria Hall in Settle on Monday 7th May.

It’s a trio with singer Helen Watson (signed to EMI in the 1980’s) who sang with The Eagles, Carmel, Emmylou Harris and Little Feat and Dave Bowie on double bass (Martha And The Vandellas, Edwin Starr and the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain).

 
The music – No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass (and a bit of ukulele). BoP’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding. Together they perform a stylish blend of precisely 47% blues, 35% folk and 18% jazz. Breathtaking skill, warm co-operation and witty anarchic banter. BoP3 invites its audience into a world of tenderness, virtuosity and human frailty.
 
BoP are appearing at The Victoria Hall, Kirkgate, Settle, BD24 9DZ
Monday 7th May
