Music: Harry Skinner and The Courtiers

Join Forest Arts Centre as we host a weekend of open-air comedy and music on the grounds of Hampshire Cultural Trust's beautiful Rockbourne Roman Villa - all ages welcome! Saturday evening is music from…

Harry Skinner Harry Skinner is a founder member of the UK award winning blues band The Producers who, after nearly 30 years of plying his trade as the songwriter and frontman for the band, has branched out as a solo artist.

Harry has toured extensively from Japan to Atlanta USA and New Zealand and all points between playing to audiences in every kind of venue. His music has received airplay worldwide and has been featured on the Paul Jones Radio show on Radio 2 on several occasions. Harry has recorded music with Andy Fairweather Low, Paul Lamb and Ben Waters as well as performing in shows featuring many of the great Blues artists of our time.

2019 saw the release of his first solo album, a collection of blues standards and original tunes, The Sinner’s List, of which Blues Matters magazine said: "if you’re lucky enough to catch him [playing solo], this album would be the perfect memento of a great night". Lockdown year 2020 saw the release of Too Much Water, a more diverse collection of entirely original material reviewed by Fatea Magazine as "...ample reward for taking a detour from your planned path online in these lockdown months. Recommended".

The Courtiers A four-piece acoustic folk band influenced by music from both sides of the Atlantic. The courtiers perform a lively and eclectic mix of traditional tunes and original material.

Regularly providing barnstorming shows at folk clubs and festivals, they are known for their energy, musicianship and entertaining banter (not to mention their secret weapon, the foot-based percussive wizardry that leaves audiences both tapping their feet and scratching their heads!)
