THE VALE LIVE presents a dynamic lineup of acts from across the globe, broadcasting from our virtual venue, live to your living room!
Kicking off on 24th April, The Vale Live will bring you wonderful talent every Wednesday and Friday from our favourite artists in isolation. No need to move from the couch (unless you’re going to get your dancing shoes), you can catch each gig LIVE on our Facebook page. You can also catch all of the livestreams on our feed after the event if you miss it or want to watch it over again!
THE VALE LIVE is proud to present Kyla Brox and Danny Blomeley live from the comfort of your couch.
Kyla Brox can be tender, urgent and gritty: she blurs the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. The daughter of blues singer Victor Brox, Kyla started singing on-stage at the age of 12 and has several albums to her name, including the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the stripped and sensitive Grey Sky Blue (2009). The different setting, from band to duo/trio, encourages two distinct Kylas to come to the fore – the salty blues mama in line from Bessie Smith, and the tender soul singer who sets out her hopes and fears in song. She never flinches from emotional reality in either situation, and is undoubtedly the finest UK blues and soul singer of her generation. The Kyla Brox Band graduated to the major league with their show-stopping appearance at Colne Blues Festival in 2002, but their roots go back further, to the infamous ‘child slavery’ edition of the Victor Brox Blues Train, which explains the superb tightness of the playing and the miraculous empathy between the musicians.
The Vale is an innovative and creative arts resource for the whole community and the home of The Vale Live producers Global Grooves, as well as a host of other incredible arts organisations.
