Head on down to Blackfriars Theatre this week for a night of country music by a local band and a performer who has toured around the world.

The Spain Lane theatre will be hosting Boston-based band Country Knights and Yorkshire based Mike Lane for a night not to be missed.

Country Knights have been circulating the country for nearly four-years now playing a mix of country covers and their own original songs.

The band consists of former Dave Clarke Five member Ron Ryan on guitar and lead singer, Reg Stratton on drums, Les Wright on lead guitar, pedal steel and vocals and Sue Wright on bass guitar and vocals.

Member Ron boasts having written several hit songs in the ‘60s for The Dave Clark Five.

They have 50 years of experience in the country music scene between them.

Their songs include Lets Turn Back the Years, Kinda Blue, Someone and Hard Road.

Mike Lane boasts a wealth of country music experience having been on the professional circuit since the ‘80s, creating his own music.

He says he was hooked by performing while in a four-piece band in Hong Kong, upon returning to the UK, said he carried on performing.

He is a regular on various country charts throughout the world and his songs have received critical acclaim in Nashville, Ohio, Kentucky, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Europe plus UK.

The show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £7.
