A 17-PIECE swing band will play a fundraising concert at Haworth Parish Church on Saturday February 15.

The 7.30pm performance by Gerry and the Hattricks and their singers Michaela Smith and Douglas Edmondson will support church funds.

The concert theme will be 1920s music. Tickets on the door will be £8. Light refreshments will be available.

Gerry And The Hattricks were formed by East Morton man John Large, who for many years was a professional musician in many orchestras.

They made their public debut at Oakworth Methodist Church in 2014 and the concert was so successful that a follow-up was quickly organised in Haworth.

The band specialises in swing, jazz and big band classics by the likes of Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.

Local swing and jazz singer Michaela Smith has performed many times with the band.
