A Brighouse musician will give a special concert next week in support of a brass band’s fundraising campaign.

Singer songwriter Roger Davies will perform songs from his forthcoming new album “Local Radio” during the concert at Bailiff Bridge Community Centre, Victoria Road, on Friday, February 20.

The event forms part of Clifton and Lightcliffe Brass Band’s ongoing programme of fundraising events as it prepares for its trip to Italy in the summer.

The band’s new double CD “Reflections” will be on sale and it is hoped that Roger’s new CD will also be available to buy on the night.

Roger’s songs celebrate aspects of Yorkshire life and locations.

His popular numbers include “Huddersfield Town”, “Brighouse On Saturday Night”, “Peter Brook’s Paintings”, “Percy Shaw” and “The Ghost Of Lily Fogg”.

“Wear Your Poppy With Pride” was released as a fundraising CD single in November with all proceeds donated to the Poppy Appeal, raising hundreds of pounds for the charity.

Roger’s song “1000 Tears” was used as part of the Kirklees Road Safety Partnership’s anti-drink driving campaign over the Christmas and New Year period.

For the concert on February 20, doors open at 7pm. The bar will be open and refreshments will be available during the interval.

Tickets priced £8 are available from Fawcetts, on Commercial Street, Brighouse; Print-It, on Bradford Road, Bailiff Bridge; or by calling 01422 200650.

Early booking is recommended as tickets are selling fast.

Clifton and Lightcliffe Band’s Italian tour will see the musicians perform at Lake Maggiore and other locations in August.
