The Visitor: Chris Simpson
19 June 2018 | 8pm
Venue: The Octagon
Join Dales author and musician Chris Simpson for an unforgettable evening of words and music.
Renowned former Grassington doctor, Andrew Jackson, will be reading excerpts from Chris’s acclaimed book The Visitor, a tale of husband and wife Yorkshire hill farmers who, having been touched by tragedy, open the door of their self-contained world to a visitor with unforeseen consequences.
The reading will be accompanied by musicians from Chris’s band Magna Carta.
Magna Carta have been delighting lovers of music with their live performances and albums since 1969 and over the years they have performed in over 80 countries, sold over 8 million records, and have six gold and three silver albums to their name.
‘The Visitor is a moving, evocative story that touches on the many aspects of my own experience, those childhood memories of Christmas at my home in the West Riding of Yorkshire’. -Patrick Stewart, actor
‘Chris Simpson is a master storyteller from the heartlands of the Dales. This tale will take you there and will touch your heart.’ – James Herriot
