Jeff Henry and the Ghostriders

Jeff has been singing and playing around the folk clubs since the 70s. About ten years ago he started writing his own songs, and performing them around the local clubs, and in 2012 he was one of the three writers of the well-received “Look Out!” production, telling the story of Southampton and the Titanic. In 2016 he formed The Ghost Riders to interpret his songs, debuting at Hanger Farm. The band comprises popular local performers Brian Hooper and Dave Betteridge, seasoned bass player John Knowler, all held together by drummer Stuart Hillier. Expect a melodious and fun evening, with plenty of opportunities to join in choruses.
