  Benny served his musical apprenticeship in the folksong clubs in the North East of England. That was a long time ago in the 60's and during the intervening years has gathered together a veritable wealth of songs and reminiscences. He has worked as a solo artist and in collaboration with other artists. Bob Fox, Jez Lowe and Billy Mitchell to name a few. Singing songs both unaccompanied or with his button melodeon, is an occasion to be cherished and with the sublime accompaniment of Chuck Fleming on his fiddle the two blend together so well. So come along and listen to Ballads and ditties, stories and tunes.


Our resident club band was recently out on the streets of Darlington again busking for charity.

       Great North Road  has been playing in the outside market area over several weekends to raise money for the Butterwick Hospice and have now raised over £2900!

The Copper Beech is situated in the south of Darlington towards the lower end of Neasham Road just before the Geneva Road roundabout if travelling from the town centre. Approaching from out of town it is preferable to take the Darlington Football stadium turn off from the A66 southern ringroad, under the low bridge and just past the first roundabout on the left. There is a large Copper Beech tree just outside!!. Post code for sat navs is DL1 4DH. more information and maps will appear in the "Contact Us "page.
