The Trades, Hebden Bridge 2017.
Dreary old January. Dark rainy nights, empty bank account, buddies off the alcohol… is there anything the wretched first month has going for it? Well, yes! A Heavenly weekend at The Trades in Hebden Bridge, where the esteemed venue puts on a mini fest of musical delights. Last year, we saw Jimi Goodwin and Cherry Ghost among others.
Heavenly label acts are appearing over the four-day long weekend, from soulful Duke Garwood through to Toy and psychedelic favourites Temples.
This is the latest lineup for the weekend:
Thursday January 19: Duke Garwood + M. Craft
Friday January 20: Hooton Tennis Club + The Parrots + The Orielles plus Heavenly Jukebox DJs until 2am
Saturday January 21: Toy, Britain + Heavenly Jukebox DJs until 2am
Sunday January 22: Temples + Amber Arcades, see dreamy Annelotte de Graaf video below.
So head on up to Hebden Bridge for a bracing walk up to Stoodley Pike, a meander round the village (with a visit to Muse Music for a spot of vinyl and a cup of tea), and a musical feast in the welcoming bosom of the famous Trades.
