Hailing from Darlington Hayley McKay is an extraordinarily gifted singer/songwriter with an amazingly pure voice. From studying at BIMM to appearing at Glastonbury, Cornbury and Northumberland Live, performing in Nashville and supporting iconic artists such as Tom Jones, Martha Reeves and Scouting For Girls, Hayley McKay is attracting attention wherever she goes

Jacks songs are often laced with dry humour and are usually of a semi autobiographical nature.
Jack plays acoustic guitar and harmonica and has a fine, strong, expressive voice which he puts to good use. His set list may include songs by John Prine, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Van Morrison, Louden Wainwright III, Christie Moore and Shane MacGowan interlaced with his own fine compositions.



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.



            Our next night will be on 31st JANUARY 2019. These nights usually alternate with our guest nights and are free. (Live music only)

Please come along to join in these unique, passionate and enjoyable evenings. Even if you do not perform we would like to emphasize that listeners are always welcome. A small , voluntary, collection and raffle are promoted to help club funds.
