About HAM

Will Richardson’s Hunsley Acoustic Music (HAM) hosts regular concerts at the Triton Inn, Brantingham. These events have been great evenings of music and entertainment. Will has also organised concerts in gardens, in rugby stadiums and at folk festivals and has raised thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).

2011 saw HAM and Will celebrating 15 years of putting on great concerts - please see the History of HAM page! (NEW!)

'I always look forward to gigs at the Hunsley Acoustic Music Club. Will and the team have been supporting our music now for more that a decade and we are always met with the most generous hospitality and great audiences, long may they continue and grow.'
Chris While

Our Artists

Well they are not really 'ours' but the bands and singers have been good enough to come along to HAM evenings to entertain us, or have supported us at MsMM concerts.

So, as a thank you, we thought we would give them a bit of extra space on our web site. We hope you like the new pages for our  fantastic artists.

Midsummer Music Madness -Thanks!!!

Many thanks to all who came along and supported our mini MdSummer Madness at Radcliffe Hall on 9th July. The gifts donated for raffle prizes and the fantastic offers for the mini auction were splendid and much appreciated. Thanks to everyone who bought raffle prizes, competed in the auction, all the helpers and of course those splendid musicians who helped make the night so memorable. We are sure that the money raised will be appreciated by TCT.

A concert in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust- Unit Castle Hill Hospital

TCT one of Lord Mayor's Charities
Supporters of Teenage Cancer Trust at Castle Hill are delighted to have been chosen as one of the charities being supported, this year by the Lord Mayor of Hull, Counsellor Mary Glew. They have already created bonds with the other 2 charities, Matthews Hub which cares for young people suffering from autism and Aspergers issues, and the Preston Road Women's Association. We hope that events taking place during the year will raise valuable funds for 3 very worthy local causes.

The story of how MsMM started and how TCT fund-raising has developed in the area (Updated 01/03/2012 by Sheila Brazier)

It seems a long time since June 2002 when we had our first gig in the garden, hoping our friends would enjoy our acoustic music concert, and raising "a bit" of money for the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT). We named this "Midsummer Music Madness" because it was summer and it was definitely madness to plan a back garden event in view of England's fickle weather! Please look around our website to see where this has led.

Clean up gang

Although our plans to have a second concert the next year were curtailed because of a local objection, this proved to be the catalyst for our event to be moved to Brantingham Park, the home of our local Rugby Union club Hull Ionians – thus leading to Rugby Tackling Teenage Cancer     more...

And, the 'MsMM gang of four' (David and Sheila Brazier, Will Richardson and Iain Colquhoun) were very pleased to be there to witness the event - after all it is what we, and many others, and this very website have been working towards for the past ten years or more!

Rugby Tackling Teenage Cancer (RTTC)
On 13th January 2008 Rugby Tackling Teenage Cancer was launched in some style at the KC Stadium.

Rugby Tackling Teenage Cancer website logo

RTTC evolved from MsMM's enforced move from the back garden to Brantingham Park, the home of our local Rugby Union club, Hull Ionians.

Quite simply it is the idea of replicating what we are doing locally with MsMM around the country via other rugby grounds.
