a TALENTED young singer-songwriter from Clitheroe will make her stage debut as a solo artist this Saturday (April 9th) when she opens the popular quarterly Acoustic Village night at top local venue The Grand.
Sixteen-year-old Hannah Spurgeon, who performs under the stage name of Hannah Rose, has been writing songs since she was 13 and will be performing along with three other acts on Saturday night’s bill.
A pupil at Ribblesdale High School, Hannah has vocal coaching with Sue Sykora, founder of Clitheroe Pop Choir, and will be playing a set of self-penned songs and covers in her own style. She has received lots of encouragement from Sue and from Olivia Mason, music teacher at Ribblesdale High School.
The talented teenager’s passion for music began at an early age.Originally opting for the violin, Hannah progressed to the guitar at 10 and is self-taught, hence her unique sound.
Encouraged by her proud parents Adam and Jackie Spurgeon, she is looking forward to the event and grateful to The Grand’s Events Manager Matt Evans for giving her the opportunity. Matt offered Hannah the chance to open the evening after listening to her CD, which she recorded in the studios at The Grand almost a year ago.
When her GCSE’s are complete, Hannah plans to write more original material and gain experience by performing locally at weddings, charity events and open mic evenings.
Tickets for the Acoustic Village are available from The Grand box office (Tel. 01200 421599).
