A BEST-SELLING country act have announced they will bring their intimate acoustic tour to a popular East Yorkshire venue next year.

Award-winning duo, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes, who make up The Shires, have made "huge waves" in the UK and the US - becoming the first UK artists to win ‘Best International Act’ at the prestigious Country Music Awards.

Now, the pair are returning to perform at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) - where they have performed on numerous occasions, first appearing at the venue in 2014, and have previously headlined the venue’s Platform Festival.

Speaking on PAC, The Shires said: "Wembley Stadium, MEN arena, Grand Ole Opry are all amazing, but Pocklington will always be a special place for us."

The duo released their debut album ‘Brave’ in 2015, which soon reached gold-certified status and topped the UK country charts. A further two gold-certified albums and three top 10 singles followed.

Tickets for the show in January 2022 are priced at £32.50 each. To purchase tickets, or to find out more, visit the PAC website or call the box office on 01759 301547.
