Eel Pie Club : ALAN DARBY'S GUITARS DELUXE

Guitars Deluxe reveal gloriously diverse backgrounds having shared stages and recording studios as well as writing credits with many of music greats. 3 guitars are Alan Darby (Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison, Robert Palmer), Jake Zaitz (Mick Jagger, Joe Louis Walker, Dana Gillespie, Ian Siegal), Artie Zaitz (Pee Wee Ellis, Earl Green, Alex Garnett, Gary Crosby), complemented by the cool rhythm section including Matt Round on bass (Jeff Lynn, James Morrison, Billy Bragg), and Evan Jenkins on drums (Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Matt Schofield).

This is a unique band that unites 3 generations of guitar players brought together by the common appreciation of this instrument and its wealthy musical heritage. Deeply rooted in blues, the 3-guitar interplay turns this combo into a mini orchestra with seductive counterpoint riffing and sophisticated harmonic combinations. Topped with soulful melodies this exciting line-up brings the best out of big guitar tones, seamlessly blended with a great tradition of the early years of electric guitar legacy. The guitar players also sing, and the material combines songs with instrumental interplay. It's both an emotional and fun listening experience.

  • £10 (£8 Members).

TwickFolk : SALLY BARKER + Phil Nelson

£16.50 in advance, £17.50 on the door

No doubt, many of you will have followed Sally's progress through BBC1's The Voice earlier this year. Sally last played TwickFolk in 2009 as the Joni Mitchell Project, So you knew, even before Tom Jones, that Sally has an an outstanding voice that can reach parts that other voices can't reach.

As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Sally has had a long and varied career in music. Labelled a folk artist for much of her successful career, Sally's appeal stretches across many more musical genres. A much respected solo artist with half a dozen solo albums to her name, Sally is also celebrated for her live and studio work fronting the all-female folk supergroup The Poozies.

With the wider acclaim that Sally has received through her appearance on The Voice, we're very much looking forward to her return to TwickFolk and to her roots.

Phil Nelson has been performing in bands semi-profesionally for over thirty years. Three years ago he finally released his debut album of original songs and now he has now followed it up with 'Deadlines and Lovers'. He'll be performing some of these latest songs solo before Sally takes to the stage.
