From The Cross Keys


Silverthorn gave an outstanding performance this evening in front of the Cross Keys congregation playing a selection of soft rock & stadium rock featuring all the classics from both sides of the genre, This evening was by far the best & most complete performance i have had the pleasure of seeing Silverthorn perform at the Cross Keys. Through both sets the songs were on the money & all four musicians were nice & tight in all respects of there performance, Ruth is one of those vocalist’s who has there own unique voice which gives most of the songs a hint of variation & definitely leaves it’s mark . All the band were on top of there game this evening & have proved they can put bums on the seats with an above average crowd for a Friday recently. Excellent night from Silverthorn well supported & there cover of Wings Live & Let Die would run Top Gun a close second on to-night’s performance.

Silverthorn over the last year have established themselves at the Cross Keys as a well respected band & become firm friends & favorites amongst the Keys faith full, performing rock classics with a couple of original numbers & superb harmonies amongst the band members they have developed a sound which as become unique to themselves. Amongst the numbers the band perform which is fronted by brother & sister Robb & Ruth Lead & bass respectively plus on drums Adam & Keyboards mike we were treated to Europe ,Wings,Heart & many more which contain many a stadium rock thoroughbreds & an evening rounded off in great Style from the evergreen classic Van Halen’s Jump. Excellent evening once again from Silverthorn performed with great syle & a bands togetherness who seem to enjoy every minute performing on stage.

From The Cross Keys


An evening of pop rock & stadium rock was performed this evening by Silverthorn a Leeds based band making the third appearance at the Cross Keys, comprising of two good sets of well delivered songs which had a very reasonably well represented crowd showing great enthusiasm for each song which with the added keyboards was well suited to the big stadium numbers. Ruth on vocals coped remarkably well with the numbers in each set which was song by some of the biggest names in rock & in a way added a twist to each song with her own unique voice, as i said previously supported by keyboard & Rob on lead guitar a strong pots n pans man Silverthorn made a wet & dreary evening hell of a lot more brighter..
