Live acoustic music 1st Monday of the month Light Dragoon Etton Beverley HU17 7PG


The Processed Pea…

…means many things to different people:

To professional musicians it is a much respected venue at which to perform. To young performers it is a place to be able to gain experience of playing in front of a live audience and for more experienced musicians it is an opportunity to do what they enjoy … making music. To those in the audience it means quite simply – a good night out!

Now on the 1st MONDAY OF THE MONTH. We operate on a first come, first served basis. The Light Dragoon opens its doors from 6.30 p.m. especially for the Processed Pea, and the evening starts at 8pm. Please come as early as you can to ensure a seat. Unfortunately food is no longer available. We aim to finish around 11pm. Occasionally we may put on additional gigs but they will always be on a Monday evening.

East Yorkshire Musician’s Night featuring: Nick & Helen Stubbs



Nick  is a  singer, songwriter & recording musician.  Over the last 29 years his musical exploits have taken him throughout the UK,  and all the way ‘down under’ to Adelaide in Australia where his music is played on ABC 891 Adelaide Radio. As well as guitar and vocals Nick loves playing saxophone, flute and congas; and enjoys being asked up on stage to improvise ( Just get up and do it!!!) with his friends & fellow musicians

He has now started playing the piano adding another flavor to his performance

Over the last few years he has been running an Acoustic Night at The Vic in Hornsea. Twice a year organizing two events  to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust Unit in Cottingham, with fantastic support from friends, musicians and music lovers alike.

Nick runs a recording studio (Seaside Studio), where, in his role as producer & sound engineer, he has been recording voice-overs for the BBC One Show as well as making recordings for local musicians and songwriters.

After listening to Nick’s Album and during an interview on the Adelaide radio station, presenter Peter Goers  thought that Nick’s music would fit in well in the Australian folk circuit, and described the ‘cover’ songs as “beautiful versions… but also your original songs stand up very well”.  He went on to describe Nick’s album as “genial…..and a very listenable album”.

Nick is often joined on stage by  his wife Helen who adds harmonies for an extra dimension as well as her own bubbly personality. They will be joined by Lisa Wharton Davies and Martin Wharton as “Stubbsie”


Also appearing will be Lucy Marshall pictured right and Mike Cooling, both of whom have played at the Pea before._DSC4318

The Nick Rooke Band

Recently reformed we welcome back the Nick Rooke Band.

Nick Rooke

Revival13sun_13_11_19_13869Barnsley born Nick was surrounded by music from an early age. He joined his first band at the age of ten, and grew up playing banjo and mandolin in local ceilidh bands – all of which provided a rich compost of traditional music from which strong deep roots have grown. His love of people and their stories inspires and fuels his song writing; and his romantic outlook on the world, its wide open spaces and the sea, enriches his songs with a deeply evocative sense of place.

Nick juggled a university education with gigging up and down the UK with The Lynch Mob; and later toured with a variety of bands, including Mary Corvette, Glen Cornick’s Wild Turkey and The Proclaimers.

Over the last ten years Nick has concentrated solely upon writing his own material; the early results of this were the EPs, The Attic Sessions and Railway Line. He then went on to release his first album, Trouble Adjustin’ in 2011, and Jericho Wales and Other Tales followed in 2013.






Paul Blackburn

Revival13sun_13_11_19_13822Paul plays fiddle, flute, whistles and accordion.

He has been a member of various bands including Noah’s Ark and Off the Boat.

He writes the odd tune or two.







Lisa Wastling

Lisa Wastling

Lisa began playing the tin whistle at the age of 12, having switched from the recorder, glockenspiel, clarinet and crum horn – none of which were particularly useful in an Irish session!

She is a one-time member of The White Horse Ceilidh Band, Green Clog Dancers and Sarum Morris, who ‘plays by ear’ having never really got to grips with the dots. She also rock climbs and is an archaeologist by profession.

Plus two new members – details to follow.

Monday 19th October

The Tickells

Mike Tickell and his teenage daughter travelled the length and breadth of the UK in the mid-80s discovering wonderful small music venues crammed full of like-minded music lovers. There was a connection with those audiences that they loved – a unique feeling in the air often lacking in larger venues – the likes of which they have since become more accustomed to. With a hankering to rekindle that experience a limited number of “back to grass roots shows” have been arranged to share stories, songs and memories as a ‘dad and his lass’ return to some of theintimate venues they performed at thirty years or so ago – and meet today’s audiences.

The Pea is one of those chosen and a nearly secret show has been arranged at the Light Dragoon on Monday 19 October. If you haven’t guessed we are talking about the great Northumbrian piper and fiddler Kathryn Tickell with her dad Mike. Seats are expected to sell out in a flash so be sure to book early for this exciting event.

Monday November 2nd 2015 @ 8.00 p.m.


Voted best band at last year’s Cropredy Convention, and named THE band to see at Glastonbury by the Huffington Post, 2014 also saw Blackbeard’s Tea Party make a huge impact at festivals as diverse as Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Costa Del Folk in Spain, and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo. With this growing reputation, it’s hardly a surprise that they are one of the most in-demand bands on the folk circuit.

Traditional songs and folk tunes are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.

Listen to High Barbary by Blackbeard’s teaparty:
