A BARN on a farm near East Morton was the unusual venue for a Sicilian rock band.

Cirrone’s music brought an authentic touch to a night of Sicilian-themed food for diners in the barn.

The private function was arranged because the trio of young musicians were in the UK for a promotional tour.

Cirrone, made up of brothers Alessandro, Bruno and Mirko Cirrone, played two 45-minute sets including acoustic versions of songs from their releases Uplands Park Road and Kings For A Night, along with cover versions.

Local woman Melanie Perrett, who helped organise the gig, said: “The barn concert was a huge success, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their show.

“They entertained with some banter and stories between songs, and they had the audience singing along with them. It was a lovely, friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

“After the show they signed autographs and posed for photos with new fans.”

After flying over from Palermo, the band spent a weekend in Bradford district – also having an interview with Bradford Community Broadcasting – then performed two shows at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

Cirrone’s tour finished with a show in London and an invitation to spend time in the studio run by Chris Dreja, a founder member of 60s legends The Yardbirds.

Melanie added: “We are now planning a couple of tours for next year for Cirrone, and they are very keen to play in Yorkshire again!”

Alessandro, Bruno and Mirko compose catchy pop-rock melodies with a sound that has obvious nods to the 70s but remains firmly implanted in today.

According to the band’s publicity: “Sharing lead vocal roles but seamlessly blending into natural sibling harmonies, their music captures the sunshine of their home island of Sicily, mixed with genuine Britpop influences to create something unique and special.

“Their critically acclaimed album Uplands Park Road was praised for their tight harmonies, breathy cool vocals and powerful guitar sections, and it was recognised worldwide reaching number one as best album of the year in many pop-rock genre charts.

“Cirrone have been featured and performed on many national and international radio and TV shows.”

The band previously toured the USA, Spain and Italy, and next year they will tour the United Arab Emirates. The latest release is a five-track EP entitled Kings For A Night.

Cirrone performed 11 concerts in Liverpool in August as part of the International Festival and chose Adelphi Ballroom to premiere the music video for their song All Right, All Night.
