Indie-acoustic band Northern Sky played a sell-out gig at Kendal Town Hall last month, raising more than £1,000 for South Lakeland Carers.

The band was formed by family solicitor John Osborne of Lancaster and Preston firm Harrison Drury (on guitar) who also writes all the songs. ‘They’re based on love/loss/hope/despair,’ he tells Obiter. ‘Perhaps inspired by my matrimonial caseload a little bit?’ Judge for yourself at

Osborne also has time to play in the office band, Harrison Fury, featuring Osborne on guitar and vocals; managing director, John Chesworth, on bass; head of corporate David Filmer on drums; and Kim Watkinson, admin executive, on vocals. That band is ‘more a bit of fun’, he admits.
