About the Hall

Mickleton Village Hall was built in 1993, on the site of the no-longer-habitable 100 year old Church Institute. It’s a full-sized, award winning hall, built in one year entirely by the enthusiastic efforts of virtually everyone in the village. The Hall was formally opened by the Earl of Strathmore on Jan 1st 1994 and has been well used ever since. Its prime purpose is to serve the village and it’s three associated parishes; but its size and layout make it an ideal choice for private parties, weddings etc and business functions. It is also a popular venue for visiting theatre companies and musical events from R’n’B to choral concerts. It is used by a variety of clubs and organisations as well as Parish council meetings and much more besides. The hall is available for hire for: • Meetings/Seminars • Social Events • Wedding Receptions • Fairs and Sales • Rehearsals • Training • Functions • Parties • Dances • Sports Classes • Stage Productions/Concerts • Presentations with IT facilities Regular activities ongoing in the hall include the Cinema Club, Teesdale Day Clubs, stage productions and concerts and the extremely popular R ‘n’ B nights. To visit the MICKLETON LIVE website please click on the link below: http://mickletonlive.uk

The Village

Mickleton is a busy yet peaceful farming village in the valley beside the River Tees. The village has a population of around 350 and sits on what used to be the borders of the North Yorkshire Moors until the boundaries were redrawn to shift us into County Durham. But the views are still as beautiful! There are two thriving pubs, The Crown and the Blacksmiths Arms, a busy village garage, Mickleton Service Station, and a Post Office in the hall. ‘Beckstones Wath’ the new footbridge over the Tees – pictured above – with its connecting footpaths is becoming increasingly popular with walkers.

    SARI SCHORR FIRST LADY OF THE BLUES TAKING EUROPE BY STORM

    Sari Schorr and her band are one of the most crowd-pleasing, gut-wrecking, festival-killing live acts out right now. Sari has a nearly superhuman level of energy that she puts into her shows. You will hear a voice like no other that is hyper powerful, husky, muscular, with an incredible texture and range. She is able to deliver sentences as a boxer would pick up an uppercut to his opponent.

    Sari has been called the ‘First Lady of the Blues’ and it’s a struggle to think of anyone else right now who deserves the title more. Her highly crafted songs highlight just how good Schorr is at invoking passion, grit, and empathy. Channelling the voices Grace Slick, Big Mama Thornton and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Sari Schorr is the embodiment of the best that modern American electric blues has to offer.

    Now with a new, electrifying band, including one of the most exciting young contemporary guitar players and singers on the blues scene today: Ash Wilson, nominated as Best Blues guitarist of 2017 by Total Guitar magazine.

    This is an exceptional show and one that suggests that if you dig Blues Rock music you should sell your soul for a ticket to see her on this tour. Just one visit to see this emotionally-charged critically acclaimed performer will assure you that this vocal volcano is a real-deal force of nature.

    The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.

    No matter what day of the week they come to town, every night is a Saturday night when The Urban Voodoo Machine hit the stage. A spectacular mash up of musical genres, instruments and carnival chaos on stage, they bring to the party everything we love about a live rock 'n' roll show. Without doubt they are one of the best bands on the UK live circuit right now, you should never miss the chance to check them out !!!

    The Urban Voodoo Machine is a collective of shadowy, London based, ne’er do wells, led by Norwegian born songwriter/frontman Paul-Ronney Angel. Featuring up to twelve musicians at any given time, The ‘Machine mash-up guitars, twin drumers, fiddle, trumpet, tuba, banjo, washboard, upright bass, gong, mandolin, accordion, harmonicas, saxophone, sousaphone and even empty bottles and tie racks to create their unique brand of Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll.

    “With their lurching sea shanties, debauched murder ballads, messed-up tangos and whiskey-soaked gypsy stomps, some reckon they’re from the same stable of stallions as Tom Waits and Nick Cave; others point out the last gang in town swagger of The Clash and the hellbound blues that John Lee Hooker first dragged out of the swamp”

    The stars were very much aligned the night Paul-Ronney Angel was begged by a promoter to be the filling in a triple-bill band sandwich. Never one to turn down a knees-up, P-R realised he had 48 hours to put a band together. No problem! Trawling the dives and doss houses of London, he called in some favours, cracked some whips and so it was that The Urban Voodoo Machine lurched into life.

    Having been an fantastic success for our 2015,  2016 and 2017 Xmas parties we have got them back again to celebrate our Christmas 2018

    Line-up:

    Paul-Ronney Angel – Lead Vocals, Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Mandolin, Banjo, Harmonica
    George ‘Le Boner’ Simmonds – Trombone & Vocals
    Slim – Accordion & Piano
    The Reverend Gavin Smith – Upright Bass
    The Late J-Roni-Moe – Drums
