A modern day musical L.S. Lowry
12:00pm Friday 28th September 2012 in News
THE old saying “you can take the man out of Yorkshire but you can’t take Yorkshire out of the man” certainly applies to Roger Davies.
Like a modern day musical L.S. Lowry, Roger Davies writes songs that celebrate the places and people he has grown up with.
Roger began to draw upon his love of Yorkshire as the inspiration for his songs while living in Brighton between 2005/2006.
Here he underwent a bout of homesickness so acute he soon returned to his hometown and began composing songs which have helped Roger establish himself as one of today’s most entertaining contemporary folk singer/songwriters.
He said: “I need a backdrop, a landscape in which to place my characters and stories in order to make them believable, which of course they should be because I only use true stories and real experiences as the basis for my songs in the first place.”
Roger Davies will be coming to the Palace Theatre on Saturday, October 6 at 7.45 pm.
Tickets are available from the theatre box office on 01527 65203, priced £10 (£9 discount).
