A fantastic night out was the result of a special youth concert at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge on February 17.

The concert had been organised by the President of the Hebden Bridge Twinning Society, David Parry, with the intention of show-casing young musicians from the area, writes Jane Jackson.

The line-up in order of appearance was: Zwayla Mitchell Dos Santos (singer with guitar), Phoebe Crawford (singer with guitar), The Famallamas (Ted Fazackerley, Will Gittner, Greg May and Andy Olley), and Bite The Bullet (Finn Hadfield, Luke Bradley, Harry Unsworth, Oliver Strangeway and Elodie McGee). 

Zwayla, Phoebe and the Famallamas are at Calder High School.

Bite The Bullet are at North Halifax High.

The young musicians played for no fee and the event raised over £200 for the HBTS youth fund which will be used to subsidise fares for young people on our trips to our twin towns St Pol-sur-Ternoise and Warstein.

An enthusiastic and youthful audience gave the musicians a great reception.

Among the audience was Lisa Severin (22) who is here on work experience until March 20, from our twin town Warstein.
