A US award-winning artist who gave a candlelit performance at Halifax Minster has said he would love to return to the town.

John Grant, whose album Queen of Denmark was chosen as the best album of 2010 by British music magazine Mojo, performed in front of a captivated audience.

A review of his performance appeared in Monday’s Courier.

Michael Ainsworth, from music promoters Doghouse, said: “It was fantastic and probably the best thing I’ve put on in 25 years. It was just stunning.

“We got in touch with his agency and made a play to try and get him here – and they took us up on it, which was brilliant,” Michael said.

“We showed John around the Piece Hall and he has already emailed me to say how much he enjoyed it and that he wants to come back one day.”
