Ripple Effect with Frank So, The NonStick Pans, The Forensics & Naut

Saturday 25 May 2024

Ripple Effect is a brand new live music event hosted at The Grand in Clitheroe in partnership with Actual Music. Its focus is to shine a light on Lancashire’s most exciting up and coming musical acts and help grow our incredible music scene. Both nights will be presented by William Wolstenholme from BBC Introducing.

Showcasing a range of musical styles, Ripple Effect gives a platform to hidden gems lying within our community. From punchy, anthemic indie bands to intimate and lyrical singer-songwriters, we’re proudly showing off some of the finest talent around.

Catch eight amazing artists across two nights at one of the best live music venues in the northwest. When someone asks you how you discovered your favourite acts, you can tell them – “Ripple Effect.”

The second event is on Saturday 1st June, you can book tickets here.

Frank So

Frank So is a 4-piece indie group based in the North West. They are a new outfit. Embryonic at best. The line up consists of Marc Rooney (formerly of Pronto Mama) on guitar and vocals, Asa Morley (formerly of Cabbage) on drums, Eden Hemphill (formerly of Blanketman) on guitar, violin, and vocals, and Billy Proctor – guitars final boss – on bass guitar. Between them they have done a bit and want to do a bit more.

The NonStick Pans

Peter Rugman grew up in-between Preston and Blackpool in a house brimming with eclectic music: from Rock n’ roll to Barbershop, from Gregorian Chant to Jazz. After years of writing, performing, and teaching himself to just-about-play any instrument he could get his hands on – he formed The NonStick Pans. The release of their debut album Nineteen Sixty Four was met with critical acclaim and inspired a small but dedicated following.

The Forensics

The Forensics are a four-piece indie-pop band from Lancashire. Despite the shadow cast by an incredible lineage of bands from neighbouring cities Manchester and Liverpool, the band plan to carve out their own path and put Lancashire firmly on the map.


naut is the music project of Darwen-based producer/instrumentalist Jordan Riding – whose music is a blend of hypnotic atmospherics, captured sounds & ethereal live guitar anchored by electronic beats.
