Anthony King... mixes music and mirth getting a very nice balance between the two...his skill with the guitar and by his remarkable voice." - Notts Comedy Review

“My family and I were in Bradgate Park today (Sat 8, July) and were lucky enough to catch your show. You were brilliant! We thought you were very funny and your singing/playing was excellent. We'd have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks for being there and making a visit extra memorable”

My Darling Clementine in Concert

The King and Queen of UK Country are back and they are heading to Barrow.

For Barrow’s last Centre Stage performance of the season we are incredibly lucky to host classic country music husband-and-wife team Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish in an uplifting evening of classic country music of pure gold. Both are incredible singers, with spellbinding voices, and songwriters of the very highest calibre. Add a 50s-60s golden era styling to the mix, and just a little knowing tongue in cheek and expect  My Darling Clementine to deliver terrific countrified thrills, with every song sounding like a forgotten Nashville classic- they revitalize the country duet with a heavenly set of original songs that brilliantly evoke the spirit of June Cater & Johnny Cash and George Jones & Tammy Wynette.  The roots of their music are taken from the folk music of working class Americans,  Irish and Celtic fiddle tunes, traditional English ballads and  the blues.

But this show is not just for fans of county music, rather for fans of great songs, great voices and great entertainment.

Tickets can be bought from the Paper Shop or the library in Barrow or by Paypal from  (you don’t need a Paypal account; just use your card). Bought in advance of the show they cost £10, £9 (concessions) and £5 (children under 16).  With the feel of cabaret, you can enjoy our well stocked bar while you watch the show.
