If a bit of folk is your thing then Dan Haywood plays The Continental on Valentine’s night.


Haywood brings his New Hawks to Preston for a mix of cosmic country and chamber-folk.

He’s recently been touring with Josephine Foster, Michael Hurley and The Tallest Man on Earth.

Dan’s latest album Dapple was released in November, called Dapple, and it drew its inspiration from the Forest of Bowland.

He said: “Given that Dapple could be set in the 18th century, I was keen for there to be no motor vehicle noise.

“Just in case the listener might prefer to imagine it that way. So the locations had to be out of the way, and some of the sessions started as early as 4am to beat the sound of the Abbeystead gamekeepers’ Land Rovers and Bowland farmers’ tractors.”

You can watch some of Haywood’s performances in the videos below.

He will be appearing at the Conti on Friday 14 February with two support acts.

Doors are at 8pm and tickets are £4, available in advance from the Conti bar or Preston Visitor Information centre.
