  Richard Grainger is a "Tees-side & Yorkshire" born singer and guitarist living on the North - East Coast of England. His extensive repertoire addresses much of folk-life from the Yorkshire Coast and Moors to industrial Teesside and beyond, both past and present. There are songs with an industrial and maritime theme, songs of the environment and much more. He has been called "a remarkable interpreter" of traditional songs.

Information for Prospective performers
Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes. Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your act.
