Following his departure from the band, Cooper has released two well received albums, including the historically themed “Tales of Love War and Death by Hanging” and his more recent singer/songwriter collection, focusing on life in Northern Europe. Says Cooper of the album: “It is a bittersweet album about living and working in Northern Europe over the last quarter century. I tried to avoid nostalgia but many songs deal with the past and how is can never be reclaimed. The sound of the album is placed firmly in Northern Europe too, with the addition of Swedish musicians and some songs that reference Scotland, Sweden and my roots. All of this seen through the prism of the Swedish winter as I look out from my studio.” More information

This unassuming community has a history that has been violent, dramatic, comedic and latterly gastronomic….. not to mention the music. The churchyard of this one time hub of the Yorkshire textile industry contains the imposing tomb of one Enoch Taylor, who’s automatic textile cropping machine, and the job losses it created, did much to trigger the rise of Ludditism in Yorkshire and the ensuing industrial unrest, echoes of which persist today. Less controversially, however, Marsden will be familar as providing locations for the Television series “Where The Heart Is”, “Last of the Summer Wine” and for devotees of comedy, “The League of Gentlemen”. Since 1992, Marsden has also been home to the Marsden Jazz Festival. In the organisers’ words: “This is one of the UK’s longest established jazz festivals…….. Thousands of visitors make the trip by train, bus, car or narrow boat to experience the unique atmosphere the festival brings to Marsden every year, and more than 60 volunteers give up their time to help make the weekend a success” Speakeasy Bootleg Band will be appearing at the Carriage House Hotel: “Situated 2 miles out of Marsden on the A62 Manchester Road.
