Yorkshire’s first whisky distillery welcomes Carrie Martin back to the stage

After two sell-out events, the team at a Spirit of Yorkshire whisky distillery are looking forward to hosting Hull-born singer and musician Carrie Martin at the Pot Still Coffee Shop at their next Distillery Session on Saturday 24 June.

Spirit of Yorkshire co-founder, David Thompson, is pleased to welcome Ms Martin after a sell-out debut performance at the Hunmanby venue in 2018: “We’re really looking forward to seeing Carrie, who resurrected a love of music that she had held since childhood and returned to writing, playing, singing and performing in 2011, once she had raised her family. Her tone rests somewhere between a young Kate Bush and All About Eve’s Julianne Regan: delicate but infused with inner strength. It will be a joy to welcome her back to the Pot Still stage and hear music from her new album, Evergreen.”

Tickets cost £15 without food or £25 with a summer buffet created by the Pot Still Coffee Shop team. Booking is essential and tickets can be booked here or by calling 01723 891758.

Spirit of Yorkshire co-founders Tom Mellor and David Thompson share a love of live music and designed the Pot Still Coffee Shop to accommodate a live band without overpowering the room.

Seating just forty, the Pot Still Coffee Shop at the Spirit of Yorkshire is a small, intimate venue that attracts lovers of live music and good food.

Forthcoming events at the Pot Still Coffee Shop at The Spirit of Yorkshire include more Distillery Sessions and the annual Distillery Open Day on Saturday 29 July.

Tours of the Distillery, home to Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, Filey Bay, are available seven days a week. Home-made refreshments are served in the Pot Still Coffee Shop that overlooks the stills from 9:30 am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sundays.
