SONGWRITER Roger Davies is putting on a Queensbury gig to sing the praises of Independent Venue Week.

Roger Davies & His Band will be playing the Queensbury Heritage Mill Venue next month.

The venue is run by the Queensbury Community Heritage and Action Partnership and regularly hosts concerts. The performance on Saturday, February 3 will set the stage for a special celebratory show by the Brighouse artist, who set up his own group after accompanying folk legends Fairport Convention on a 30 date UK tour. He had a succession of sold-out concerts last year and a slot at the 2017 Great British Folk Festival in Skegness but is looking forward to the Queensbury show.

“It’s a great independent venue. I’m looking forward to playing there,” said Roger.

Tickets from £10 are on sale now and on the door on the night. Call 07882 657072 or go to to find out more. The doors will open at 7pm.
