Frankie and the Heartstrings melt the ice at Salford Lads’ Club

Frankie & the Heartstrings in the concert hall at Salford Lads' club

The North East may be frozen but Frankie and The Heartstrings braved the arctic weather to perform a glowing set in the concert hall last night.

The gig had started with a terrific set from Brooklyn indies Small Black
before Frankie and co took to the stage. Fans who had trudged along an ice bound Coronation Street were rewarded with a bit of northern soul, giant projected black and white images of the 1980s miners strike making a stark contrast to the lively Sunderland five piece.

The gig was organised by Islington Mill
