ACROSS THE POND: American Indie group The Love Birds to perform at Middleton-in-Teesdale

A DALE social club is proving to be alluring for bands from across the pond with yet another American ensemble making a bee-line to entertain folk as part of their European tour.

The Love Birds, an indie from San Francisco, are heading to Middleton-in-Teesdale Sports and Social Club at the end of the month in one of only three dates they will be playing in the UK.

Last month the club played host to Atlanta’s Gringo Star, who took the time to return to the village after enjoying their previous gig so much.
