THE GROOVY Happening is 90!

That’s 90 concerts, with the monthly music night still sprightly after several years in Haworth.

The latest concert will be on Saturday October 6, when the volunteer organisers hope to reach a total of £30,000 raised for Manorlands.

Appearing for the first time at Groovy Happening is Snyde who are a Keighley based indie rock band playing music to get people singing and dancing.

Ruby Stone Alone are a duo featuring Ruby Stone, aka Dawn Stebbings on vocals and Gareth John on keyboards.

Dawn said: “After performing in bands together for 25 years we’ve finally taken the plunge to form a duo and do all the songs we’ve wanted to do... but not necessarily as people know them.

“That’s the fun of being in a duo, there’s more chance to experiment! We also play some songs as they were intended... some songs are just to good to change!

“We know from experience that this is the perfect place to try something different as the audience at The Groovy Happening are always a great crowd and are always very welcoming.”

The Skip Pickers will perform songs both traditional and modern, from Eddi Reader to Billie Holiday, Irish Jigs to American old-time.

The duo have played together in and around Lancashire and the Fylde coast for over 20 years, and will be performing at Groovy Happening for the fourth time after going down so well in the past.

Kurt Wood, self-proclaimed “big gob and string thwacker” with Keighley bands Sounds of Swami and Foxes Faux, will play self-penned tunes described as twangy down-tuned riffs for fellow weirdos.

The Groovy Happening is at the Parkside Social Club on Butt Lane, Haworth, from 7.30pm. Admission £3.
