…and Next!

A great gig at Once Upon a Time in the West last week, would have been nice to stick around and enjoy the rest of the weekend, but the next evening we had an hour and a half’s set at Cliveyfest, which also went down well (barring the powercut!) No rest yet though, here’s the

Still a few tickets left for Once Upon A Time In The West Festival, which we’ll be opening up at 7ish on the Thursday night… And on the Friday night we’ve got a nice long set at Cliveyfest, so a busy week in front of us…

A packed month it is as well – kicking off in fine style with Keynsham Festival last week, then this coming Saturday we’ve got Heddstock – a one-dayer down near Devizes. All the usual info and ticket details on the giglist…

Chilli fest cancelled

Sorry to say that the Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival we were due to play at Bath Racecourse in September has been cancelled – anyone who has already bought tickets will receive a full refund. A real shame, it would have been a great way to round off the Festival year, but on the bright side

New year, new banjoplayer!

Happy 2017 folks – and as John Lennon nearly said, let’s hope it’s a good one, with plenty of beer! Good news for the New Year is that the banjo vacancy has been filled, and 5-string duties are now in the capable hands of Mark Styles, so we’re back up to full fighting strength once

calling all banjoplayers!

Sadly it seems we have to say goodbye to Johnny Gould, our banjoplayer for the last couple of years. He’s been struggling with other commitments for a while now and is having to spend a lot of his time in Denmark for the foreseeable future, which makes rehearsing and gigging well-nigh impossible, so he’s regretfully
