Brighouse singer songwriter Roger Davies is giving a charity concert for the Rotary Club of Halifax Calder at Square Chapel arts centre, Halifax, on Saturday, October 19. Roger’s previous shows at Square Chapel sold out and it is fast becoming one of his favourite performance venues.

“The atmosphere and the acoustics are just right,” said the Clifton-born musician. “I’ve done a few other fundraising concerts over the last few months for Kirkwood Hospice, Help for Heroes and Cancer Research UK and I’m really looking forward to making a positive contribution at the show in Halifax.

“Audiences can expect plenty of new songs from my forthcoming new album, which should be ready for spring 2014, as well as plenty of live favourites from my previous albums Northern Trash, The Busker and Songs in Plain English.”

Many of Roger’s songs are set in and around Brighouse, Halifax and his native West Yorkshire.

All proceeds from the show will go to the international charities supported by the Rotary Club. The doors open at 7.30pm for 8pm and tickets are available from 01422 349422.

Roger’s concert is part of an exciting autumn season at Square Chapel with entertainment for all ages. Highlights include two fantastic shows by Marsden based theatre company Mikron with ‘Beyond the Veil’ tonight, Thursday, and ‘Don’t Shoot the Messenger’ on Friday, October 25.
