Organiser Gary Ward, founder of DMP, said: “I am very excited about this as he has been a massive inspiration to Darwen Music Projects. The music that he played on his late night Radio One show has directly shaped the music that we like to promote at Number 39, and previously the first six Darwen Live festivals that we organised.”

Tickets are £8 can from the bar or by sending a cheque to Darwen Music Projects, Number 39 Hopstar Brewery Tap, Bridge Street, Darwen, Lancs, BB3 2AA.

Andy Kershaw is a legend, arguably second only to John Peel in the music stakes. This is a real coup for Darwen.
