The Washboard Resonators

The Washboard Resonators

This duo of guitar, banjo and washboard play footstomping blues, ragtime, swing and folk like it was on the street corners of America in the 1920s, 30s & 40s. The band has played many gigs, including Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival, C FAB Folk Festival in Lincolnshire and may pubs and bars. This duo is perfect for situations where something acoustic, but energetic and lively is required.

Stevie Williams Unplugged

Jul
20

Stevie Williams Unplugged

Stevie Williams is a talented UK bassist, singer and songwriter. As well as his solo work, he also fronts The Most Wanted Band, testament to his tireless work ethic and devotion to his craft. A life long devotee of the ageless blues, alt country and americana sounds, he has travelled the globe absorbing a plethora of diverse influences and honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.

Stevie Williams and his latest project ‘Pockets Full of Gold’ featuring the song ‘She Don’t Do’ was produced by Stevie, engineered and written entirely by Stevie with the exception of one track. The hands-on approach with this album pays off, as he seem's completely in tune with the sound he want's to project. ‘She Don’t Do’ is a moody, stripped back and somewhat dark track complete with soulful delivery from Stevie and touches of psychedelia that just add to his quirky appeal. It’s catchy without trying to be.  http://forthecountryrecord.com

Francis Tulip Quartet

Jul
21

A first visit for this promising  North-East based band, alumni of the excellent education programme at Sage Gateshead which has nurtured  so many young players this past decade or so. With quartet members now students at prestigious conservatoires – including on  the famed jazz programme at  Berklee College in Boston, Massachusetts - at the moment they can only work together again when they’re not at college, hence this fortuitous summer visit.
