Phil Beer, best known for his multi-instrumental wizardry as one half of England’s top acoustic / roots duo Show of Hands, is also touring with his own band, The Phil Beer Band.

Described by The Guardian as ‘where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide’ an evening with The Phil Beer Band is fast, frenetic, ‘feel-good’ and leavened with a good helping of humour.

The line up will be
Phil Beer- Guitars fiddles Mandolins and vocals
Emily Slade – Guitar
Gareth Turner- Melodeons
Greg McDonald – Bass
Steve Crickett- Drums

 

 

Tickets will be available from:

About Stromm

Stromm are Ross Mitson (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Claire Kidman (vocals), Kate Ross (bass) and Stuart Paterson (drums).  They write and perform music with an emphasis on songwriting.  Their sound is a satisfying brew of exquisite harmonies, catchy melodies and witty, sometimes dark lyrics.

Jul 7 @ 20:00

The core trio of ARCELIA  is GAVIN ALEXANDER  TERESA GALLAGHER & SIMON FOSTER  now regularly joined by MARTIN ELLIOTT on bass and PERRY WHITE on piano.

Since getting together in 2012, Arcelia’s reputation for beautiful songwriting and stunning harmony has begun to spread and they now enjoy a wonderfully busy diary, with gigs such as,  support & BV’s on Chris Difford, (Squeeze) solo tour, Mark Nevin  (Fairground Attraction), Scott Matthews, Maddy Prior,  Coope Booyes & Simpson and  Oysterband at venues such as Green Note, 100 Club, The Bedford, and Folk in the Barn.

Arcelia was asked by Mojo Magazine to record a Beatles cover track with Chris Difford. Simon’s arrangement of ‘All My Loving’ was duly recorded. Read about it here
