The latest concert in a series of events to promote some of the region’s finest musicians is set to take place at Pocklington Arts Centre on Friday.

Starting at 8pm, the third ‘Emerge: Yorkshire’ event, staged with financial assistance from Arts Council England, will feature acoustic pop-rock band Ellen and The Escapades, from Leeds, and singer-songwriters Beth McCarthy and Sam Griffiths, both from York. Ellen and The Escapades have played at Glastonbury, toured nationwide and performed at the Arts Centre and Pocktoberfest before. Beth McCarthy appeared on BBC One show The Voice last year.
