York Calling Magazine – Issue 5

The first issue of York Calling’s new weekly magazine is available from today. The new feature-packed weekly promises to provide the low down on all that’s hot in the music and arts scene in York and further afield.

The 6 July issue includes an in-depth interview with David Edmunds, the director of Selby Arts Festival which makes its debut at the end of the month, as well as a chat with Halifax’s Jack The Rapper, and award news from York’s Little Festival of Live Music, The National Centre for Early Music and York Theatre Royal.

All that features alongside our usual events rundown and music reviews. This issue we have a listen to Trailblazer, Earl, Lany, Dingwei, Heath Common, Royal Blood and The Japanese House.

The magazine will be officially launched this Saturday with an acoustic show at Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road. The event will include York up and comer and Access to Music Alumnus Amber Warren and mellow indie performer Will Ellis. The show will also introduce the fantastically talented teenager singer-songwriter Fiona Lee to York for the first time.

York Calling’s owner Graeme Smith explains: “last year we ran a quarterly edition of York Calling Magazine and I’m pleased to announce its return in July. In its new weekly format, it will give select information about what’s hot in the York music and arts scene and we hope it quickly becomes a must read. We will be officially launching the mag at our July show, with free issues of the mag available.”

The show is free entry but is invite only. Anyone who wants to come along should drop us a message via our contact page.

The new magazine is available as a free digital download or via print on demand, alongside previous issues here.

York Calling Magazine launch party takes place at Clements Hall on Saturday 8 July 2017. The Magazine is available now.
