West Coast Americana
Rewind with Laurel Canyon Union, playing songs of the Woodstock generation, from the gentle reflection of James Taylor to the rebel fury of Neil Young. A performance of light and shade, love, peace and understanding.
In 2015 a long serving member of the legendary UK FOLK ROCK GROUP, MAGNA CARTA embarked on the idea of forming a band to pay tribute to the singer songwriters of 60’s / 70’s West Coast America.
Drummer John Shepard ( also of GRAMMY NOMINATED ACOUSTIC ALCHEMY) recruited the very best musicians around to play songs from artists such as Jackson Browne, Neil Young, Eagles, The Byrds, Poco, Buffalo Springfield, Canned Heat and James Taylor etc.
With their focus set firmly in the music that came out of Laurel Canyon expect a great playlist of ‘Cool Californian Folk Rock’
Laurel Canyon Union are currently playing sold out shows at Live Music Venues, Arts Centres, Concert halls, Music Festivals and Folk Festivals in the UK
The Bandstand is located in the centre of Ilkley. It is on the southern side of The Grove which is a picturesque tree lined street of elegant shops and is directly opposite Betty's famous tearooms.
The Bandstand is surrounded by well kept gardens with permanent seating for those wishing to enjoy the performers.
The Bandstand was conceived as a millenium project by the Rotary Clubs of Ilkley Wharfedale & Ilkley and completed in 2001. The site was generously donated by the Ilkley Abbeyfield Society and both organisations, together with Ilkley Parish Council retain a keen interest as Trustees. An active management committee of volunteers run the bandstand and gardens on a day to day basis. They aim to provide appropriate entertainment for residents and visitors alike.
