After six hugely successful, sold out #360RAW events last year, each of them exhilarating and emotional nights, 2019 heralds the seventh event showcasing the incredible talent emerging from West Yorkshire. RICHARD WATSON, promoter of the 360 Club, and ALAN RAW, presenter of BBC Introducing West Yorkshire and BBC Introducing Humberside, are proud to announce the latest of these special events.
Taking place on FRIDAY 29 MARCH – and subtitled #360RAW7 – the event this time focusses on the emerging talent in the alt-folk, singer-songwriter and blues field, and features a further four of the region’s finest and most exciting emerging artists: CLARE KELLY from Leeds; THE BLACKSMITH from Castleford; LIAM SULLIVAN from Huddersfield; and MOLLY RYDER from Leeds.
As with previous #360RAW events, the night will see Alan Raw DJ before and between the live sets, playing new music of all styles from local artists. Anyone can turn up and meet the face behind BBC Introducing and are encouraged to bring demos which he may well play on the night, or pass onto the producers for consideration on his shows. The ethos of #360RAW is purely about supporting emerging acts, a passion that both Richard and Alan share, and one that sees them freely offer musicians their time, their help and their advice without any hidden agenda.
