Special one-off show in support of the Friends

Edale-born Bella has had a breathless year so far, with the release of her seventh solo album "With The Dawn" to great critical acclaim. Her extensive touring has included opening appearances for Grammy Award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter, and a season as the British Council’s Musician in Residence in China. And this September she is heading to Nashville for a month of songwriting with some of America’s finest musicians.

This show is the only chance to hear Bella’s stripped back performance with guitarist Iain Thomson before she sets off on her US adventure.  She’ll be debuting brand new songs and revisiting favourites from her impressive back catalogue, ready for her first ever Nashville showcase at the end of her trip. 

Doors open at 7.30pm, 8pm start.  £10 (concessions £8)
