We are super pleased to have been able to secure a festival warm up show from ace Americana act Danny & The Champions of the World at The Victoria in Swindon on 6th July.
‘Think Hillbilly meets Country Rock meets Rock n Roll meets Folk.…if we can get away with it we do it….don’t get hung up on genre. Pinning a label could kinda hurt ya head. We do what we do our way and love doing it. We’re told that that comes thru loud n clear when we play…gathered round a single mic (if we can) playing our own songs with some choice covers, played Crow style”
Octobers early jaunt to Bristol on Sunday 8th for our residency at The Golden Lion finds superb Oxford Americana act The Great Western Tears as headline act, with a fine supporting turn promised by those cheeky chaps The Shudders.
The brilliant Oxford duo The August List have long been favorites of ours and we have managed to bag them for two shows this month – Sunday 4th June at The Golden Lion in Bristol (show starts at 4pm) and again on Thursday 22nd June at The Tuppenny in Swindon from 8.30pm. Both are free entry too!
n the second of our visits to The Beehive within the week we reacquaint ourselves with an old friend, a wandering troubadour from Texas who has been making regular sojourns to SoP for several years now and now makes two for us over the same weekend.
Our residency at The Golden Lion in Bristol hits month three and continues to go from strength to strength and this month we have a beauty. Sunday 12th March sees Oxford based troubadour Jonny Payne arrive with his band The Thunder.
We are super excited to announce that we will be taking up a monthly residency in Bristol from January 2017. One Sunday a month at the fabulous Golden Lion on Gloucester Road in the city will become our home.
We have booked our first ever tour (albeit a very short one) for our favourite Americana acts Case Hardin. Taking in stops in Swindon, Bristol and Oxford, the band continue to showcase brilliant 4th album Colours Simple. All dates feature soulful country blues-folk songstress Tamsin Quin.
We are back to 3 shows this week, much more what has become a business as usual week after last week’s “fallow week” with three great shows across three great venues, including the triumphant and long awaited return of The Black Hats rhythm section!
It is a stupidly busy week for us this week with no less than 4 shows featuring 15 acts over 5 days. Phew.
