TWO ACTS will make their debut at the next Groovy Happening on February 1.

The music night at the Parkside Social Club in Haworth will also see the return of popular group Black Horse Fairy in their new incarnation as a duo.

Black Horse Fairy are now singer and keyboard player Yvonne Gillson and octave mandolin and bass guitar player Graham Lloyd.

Groovy spokesman Susan Burke said: "Part dark folk, part circus cabaret, their intimate, melodic songs invite the listener into a hazy world of the subconscious and the apparent, a world where magicians and hypnotists ponder the nature of life and death.

"The songs, although heartbreaking at times, are ultimately life-affirming, otherworldly and wise."

Hit The Lights are an energetic six-piece band formed in Keighley in 2018 with female singers Rosa Sargent and Natalie McGarragh accompanied by John Bell (drums), Kyle Riley (bass), Ben Wilson (guitar/vocals) and Adam Jones (lead guitar).

Seasoned players from various local bands, they have come together to provide quality, low-cost entertainment for weddings, corporate events and establishments. 

Susan said Hit The Lights played a variety of well-known classic songs through several decades, including Elton John, Aretha Franklin, The Killers, Stereophonics, Britney Spears and The Four Tops.

She said: "Their aim is simple, to keep the audience up dancing and enjoying the music. The appreciative audience we have at Groovy will certainly make sure they succeed!"

Susan said it was exciting to welcome the next generation of artists to the Groovy, this time 13-year-old Evie Shepherd whose father Johann had performed there in the past.

Susan added: "Evie plays the guitar and ukulele and likes indie and pop rock music, The 1975, Billie Eilish and The Neighbourhood being amongst her favourites. She will be playing acoustic covers in her own unique style."

Hit the Lights have donated a guitar as a prize for the Groovy's renowned monthly raffle.

Doors open at 7.30pm, admission £4, and all proceeds go to Manorlands. The Groovy has to date raised £36,800 for the hospice.
