Mike Farris to play Ashington

Recommended Posts

Most people will not have heard of Mike Farris, but he is a Grammy Winning blues/gospel singer with an amazing voice from Tennessee USA. Ashington Town Council have booked him to play at  The White House Unique Social Club on Thursday 20th. October. Not many tickets left, but if you like music then this will be very special. Check out this video to see what he is all about.

Ps a highlight of mine was seeing Eric Bogle in Ashington not that many years ago! Watching him sing 'and the band played waltzing Matilda' actually did raise the hairs on my arms. Privileged much.

here's another example of Mike without his band, although he does have the wonderful McCrarry Sisters helping with the vocals on this video.

I'm pretty sure that they will not be at Washington with Mike, more the shame.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
