Bluegrass/Americana Night

Tonight will be a veritable smorgasbord of musical styles with influences ranging from Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Steve Earl, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Randy Newman and many other iconic artists from the great American song book. Appearing tonight are: Chris Wright – a brilliant young finger-picking acoustic guitarist from Stevenage who amazed us with his stunning playing and fine voice on his last visit a couple of months ago; Twitchy Fingers – acoustic guitar duo John Young and Tony Gammage making a long awaited return, performing an eclectic mix of ragtime, hokum and country blues; The Shawnee Mountain Boys – Brian Burke on bazouki and mandolin, and banjo ace Dave Stacey playing some fine old-time and bluegrass material; CorrMcConnell – Frank Corr and Shelagh McConnell performing songs by some of the legends of Americana and country music.
