Andy, probably best known for his work with Brit award winners Massive Attack, is coming to Burnley for the first time and will be backed by the Dub Asante Band, one of the UK's finest reggae groups, with the promise of a night filled with the authentic sounds of roots reggae, lovers, dubwise and early dancehall. An added bonus for any early arrivals is a reggae selection from Manchester DJ and Music Head – 'Dom Blood and Fire'.

Mia Laffy, marketing lead for cultural services at Burnley Leisure and Culture, which runs the Mechanics, said: “The mix of Horace's engaging vibes and the historical significance of the setting guarantees a must-see performance. It’s important that we support live music in our town.”
