Mr Wilson's & Friends - Raising Funds for MIHC

Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC), New Mills Festival and The Studios are very pleased to present Mr Wilson’s Second Liners live at The Butterfly House at The Torrs, New Mills for one crazy, fun packed night only – Saturday 7th April 2018. Doors open at 7.30pm.

The gig will be raising funds for MiHC, a charity that brings interactive live music sessions to people who are receiving care or treatment, for an illness or disability, in healthcare settings across the UK. MiHC organises around 4,500 music sessions a year for people of all ages. Mr Wilson’s will be admirably supported by Lazlo Baby - bringing you a high-octane mixture of Balkan folksy ska, klezmer, gypsy and trad Irish music; plus the sultry sounds of The Butterfly’s own Jilah Bakhshayesh.

Tickets, priced at £10 early bird; £7 concessions or £13 on the door are available from Priscilla’s Cards, Market St, New Mills or tel: 07753842861 to reserve. But beware we don’t expect there to be many available on the night! Also available here:

In a style described as New Orleans meets 90s club classics, Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners are revolutionary genre-bashers. Hot-stepping out in uniformed style, they channel the spirit of the 24-hour party people, playing upbeat dance tracks guaranteed to get audiences dancing wherever they play. They’re an anarchic extravaganza, bursting with colour and sound, rallying impromptu raves on street corners and rousing audiences young and old into a joyful frenzy. Expending their collective musical talent, they pay homage to the diehard days of the Hacienda, 90s club culture and its greatest hero, Mr. Tony Wilson.

“...nattily dressed...dragged through a school disco with a mega phone...Bastille take note: this is how you cover a pop dance classic” Festival No 6.

“It was like somebody had flicked a switch; almost as if the festival was in black and white before they proclaimed the audience’s attention” Manchester Jazz Festival

“...Joyful and compulsive with big band sparkle” Manchester Confidential

With a packed annual touring schedule, Mr. Wilson’s plays to, on average, 20,000 spectators a year and has appeared at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Festival No. 6, London Jazz Festival, Bournemouth Arts By The Sea Festival, Chaoyang Spring Carnival, Beijing, Fêtes de la Tour Blanche, Issoudun, France plus many more. And we’re very excited that they have now made it to New Mills for our MiHC fundraiser.
