June Tabor and The Oysterband Leeds City Varieties

City Varieties in Leeds provides a perfect venue for tonight’s sold-out show. Reopening in September after a two year refurbishment this venerable old theatre – a long rectangle with plush private boxes at circle level - first opened in 1865. Charlie Chaplin appeared here and from 1953- 1983 it was home to the BBC’s illusory The Good Old Days. So LADIES and Gentlemen! "Please put your hands together for the scintillating, stupendous,sensational and supreme songstress M-i-s-s June Tabor!"

Readers of The Leeds Scenester may well be unfamiliar with what’s on offer here. Well “folk” is the pigeon hole – traditional songs from Britain, Ireland and America. But just in case we get comfy with that label we are treated with experimental covers of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ (a highlight particularly when John Jones enters so beautifully on the second verse); P.J.Harvey’s ‘That Was My Veil’, The Velvet Underground’s ‘All Tomorrow’s
