AFTER wowing crowds at the Romeria de Mayo Festival in Cuba and the Newark Jazz Festival, the Neil C Young Trio return to more familiar surroundings with gigs in Lancaster, Poulton-le-Fylde, Burnley and Manchester between August 6 and 31.

With a new album — Where’s Yours? — showcasing his trio’s undoubted talent and a growing worldwide following, thanks to a well-placed track on a popular Indian compilation, the next 12 months look set to become very hectic for the affable Lancastrian.

The Neil C Young Trio, which also features Richard Young on drums and Alan Whitham on bass, are a sight to behold as they move swiftly and seamlessly through their set of original compositions and bossa nova, bebop and blues numbers.

* The Neil C Young Trio play Lancaster's Stonewall Tavern on August 6; Poulton-le-Fylde's Seven Stars on August 14; Burnley's Bridge Bier Huis on August 26; and Manchester's Matt & Phreds on August 31. For more details log on to or
