Dare + special guest Troy Redfern



DOORS - 19:30

Dare are probably best known for their singer/songwriter Darren Wharton who first rose to fame in the early eighties playing keyboards with legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy. At the tender age of eighteen, alongside Philip Lynott, Darren toured the world and recorded classic Thin Lizzy albums, such as ‘Chinatown’, ‘Renegade’, and ‘Thunder and Lightning’ on which Wharton co-wrote 4 songs, including the hit single ‘The Sun Goes Down.

After the sad demise of Thin Lizzy in 1986, Darren returned to his home town Manchester where he began to write, sing and produce his own songs. After recruiting guitarist Vinny Burns, and young keyboard player Professor Brian Cox, in 1988 Dare released their debut album ‘Out Of The Silence’, which is still widely regarded today as one of the all time great AOR albums. Tours with Jimmy Page, Europe and Gary Moore, soon gained Dare cult status among AOR fans throughout Europe and the World.

Over the next 2 decades, Dare released  7 more classic albums, including ‘Sacred Ground’ the Amazon Number #1 in seven countries album,Each album adding a new dimension to the band’s unique atmospheric sound. 

Now 2021, working with original guitarist Vinny Burns, Kev Whitehead on drums, Nigel Clutterbuck on bass, and Marc Roberts on live keys,  Dare are set to release their much awaited 8th studio album.  Beautifully crafted, rich in anthemic melodies, this original fresh new recording will set the stage for the bands headline appearance at Holmfirth Picture Drome. It’s clear that Dare are here to stay, and ready to Rock!
