IAN PARKER BAND

Special Support from Joe Hicks
Doors 7.45pm

Advance Tickets are £15.00 from usual outlets or book online (online booking fee applies) Tickets £17 on the door

We have huge pleasure in welcoming back to the club one of the stars of British blues Ian Parker. He's been on the scene for the past twenty years and rightly established himself as one of the great British blues guitarists. Signed to Ruf records in his early twenties his star has continued to shine throughout the years.

 

In 2018 he went to Rockfield Studios where Queen produced their finest work to record his finest album by far -  Spoonful of Gold-Blues for Willie - a celebration of the music of Willie Dixon.
 

We saw him at last year's Upton on Severn Blues Festival and was by far the best band of the entire festival.

 

This is the first full band live show of the year and Ian will be ably supported by the supremely talented Joe Hicks this will be one special show you cannot miss.

FROM THE USA :: MIKE ZITO BAND

Support from The Lost Trades
Doors 7.45pm

Rightly lauded as one of the best contemporary blues artists in the USA Mike Zito makes his third visit to the club. Being a member of one of most iconic bands in the last decade Royal Southern Brotherhood his live shows are what puts him apart from many other artists.

"If you don’t believe what you’re singing, you’ll never be a good singer. I try not to write fluff; I try to make every word count."
Mike Zito

 

He goes back to his roots for his latest release a tribute to Chuck Berry. Taking over a year to put together he got the likes of Joe  Bonamassa  Walter Trout Robben Ford amongst many others to put their own identity on this project which has received rave reviews.

 

Showcasing this and all his back catalogue, this will be one special show.

 

Opening is The Lost Trades a Wiltshire supergroup comprising  Tamsin Quinn, Phil Cooper and Jamie R Hawkins.

 

Tickets, as expected, are selling very well for this gig.

This is going to be one of the gigs of the year to date when Mark Flanagan performs a very rare club date with his trio.

"A truly great guitarist" Eric Clapton


Mark has been the staple house guitarist with Jools Holland and his Orchestra for over thirty years he is one of the most recognised faces on the small screen. He's accompanied everyone from Chaka Khan to Paul Weller and Eric Clapton he very rarely gets time to play with his own trio. Backed by expert musicians in the form of Kevin Willoughby and George Double, this is show not to be missed.

Gigs like this rarely happen at all, so this is one special treat for us indeed.

Excellent rendering of 'Carry me down' from Mark Flanagan
So much to look forward to!

Warmest Regards
Ian Hopkins & Liz Harris
