YORKSHIRE-BORN singer and songwriter Roger Davies has been working with students at Honley High School to help develop their own song-writing skills.
He has led workshops and they have listened to him perform some of his most well-known songs written about his native Yorkshire.
Roger has been a regular visitor to the school for the past three years and works with all year eight pupils.
They are currently studying a ‘Yorkshire Folk’ project and Rogers’ workshops are designed to help young people think positively about their locality so that they can turn these feelings into lyrics.
Students have been serenaded to lyrics based on his hometown in ‘Brighouse on a Saturday Night’ and ‘Huddersfield Town.”
One pupil involved in the workshop said: “It was great to listen to Roger playing live music.
“He has inspired me to listen to more folk music.”
Leigh Baker, Head of Music, added: “It’s fantastic to see how the pupils respond to a musician of Rogers’ status.
“And there’s been a real buzz in school with plenty of interest and autograph hunting!”
