A band that has headlined Glastonbury and had numerous top 40 hits has chosen a Ribble Valley village for its “warm up gig” pre-festival appearances and major UK tour.

Dodgy is taking to the stage at Ribchester Village Hall on Friday August 7th and will be one of the “biggest” bands that has played in the village.

Carl Barrow from the organisers, Hollow Horse Events, explained that Dodgy contacted him in the hope that a suitable intimate venue was available in the area. After just organising the Kyla Brox/Fiona Boyes sell out concert at the same venue the choice was an easy one to make. Dodgy played in the area a couple of years ago and told Carl they would love to return.

As well as songs such as “Good Enough” and “Staying out for the summer” the band will also be playing material from their soon to be released new album. A perfect opportunity to hear the new music before other fans as this is their only North West appearance for the summer.

Dodgy hit the road in the autumn with the Dodgy NOW Tour, their first full UK tour for nearly two years. They will be previewing songs from their highly anticipated new album “Hold Up To The Light”, the follow up to the critically acclaimed fan favourite, “Stand Upright In A Cool Place”.

The beautiful village of Ribchester has a rich musical heritage and has welcomed fine musicians of many styles to its festival which has just celebrated 23 successful years.

Tickets are now on sale for Dodgy via ticketweb at only £10 each. For further information contact Carl on 07824 488410.
