Echo Town [+]

Free before 9pm…£4 after.

echotown

UK South West based band Echo Town consists of free spirited brothers Ric and Rob Harrison. Recognised for their vibrant and energetic performances, contemporary freedom songs and use of multi instruments such as lap-slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica. The audience are often surprised to find such a full sound emanates from only two musicians. 

Originally playing music of the heavy rock genre in their earlier years, the Leeds born duo moved on to develop a more harmonious and spiritual approach to music in the past five years as they creatively matured and grew into the upbeat band Echo Town we know them as today. They relocated to Cornwall in early 2015 after completing a mini tour late summer 2014. After they received an overwhelmingly positive response from the South West music scene they opted for the vibrant and contrasting lifestyle change of the South. Quickly gaining much attention from booking agents and radio shows. This summer has seen the duo perform at festivals in the South West of England, the North of England and Wales. In November 2015 Echo Town made it at number three in a Plymouth City article called ‘11 Bands Crushing It In The South-West of England Right Now’.

Echo Town have been performing to a live audience up and down the country for over three years, performing at festivals and various music venues. To date they have opened for Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, Bite the Buffalo, Land of the Giants, Wille & The Bandits and Sound of the Sirens. In 2015 they toured the South West and the North of England releasing their album ‘Be Strong Troop On’. Winter 2016 will see them heading to France and Germany through The Mojo Hobo Agency.

Echo Town released their second album ‘Come on Over’ in June 2011, inspired by family relationships, the great outdoors and surfing on the East English coast. ‘Come on Over’ was accompanied by music video for their single ‘Feeling Alright’. In summer 2014 they recorded their third album entitled ‘Be Strong Troop On’ released summer 2015.

In August 2013 they filmed a set of promotional videos with Falmouth based ‘Harbourside Sessions’ for sponsors Anderwood Guitars. They have also filmed with Balcony TV Exeter and been featured on Alan Raw’s BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, David White BBC Introducing Cornwall, St Austell Radio Station and other various independent radio stations.

“… As if John Butler’s lapsteel, Xavier Rudd’s social commentary and Jack Johnson’s catchy pop ideals have all been fused by the hands of two British songwriters.” Richard Cadence (egigs.co.uk)

“…One of the finest up and coming South West bands.” – The Mojo Hobo Agency

“… Not surprisingly a good festival band…” – Alan Raw BBC Introducing West Yorkshire

“They blast out a goodtime, uplifting and contemporary view of modern life and it is easy to hear why the duo are often an immediate hit when performing live. Highly promising.” – Keith Ames (The Musician Magazine

Scott Matthews 4

Scott Matthews’ ground- breaking debut album, Passing Stranger earned him serious critical acclaim with its bold mix of folk, rock, blues and Eastern-inspired song-writing, and in 2007 his first single ‘Elusive’ won the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’. From here Scott went on to perform on a number of international sell-out tours with respected artists such as Bert Jansch, Robert Plant and Alison Kraus, Foo Fighters, Rufus Wainwright and Tori Amos. Subsequently, Robert Plant came onboard for a guest contribution on Scott’s follow-up album, Elsewhere, and down the line legendary double bassist Danny
Thompson joined Scott on his third release What The Night Delivers, having encountered each other whilst performing in Joe Boyd’s stage production of Way to Blue – The Songs of Nick Drake.
The vision for albums four and five were, however, much closer to home with Scott recording Home Part 1 in 2014 at the bottom of his garden in his home-built musical abode. This organic means of creating music from his home in the West Midlands inspired Scott to set up his own record label in 2016, ‘Shedio Records’, on
which his new album, Home Part 2 has been. Home Part 2 finds Scott in many senses returning to the source, driven by what he
describes as “a need to rekindle a relationship with the artist I was 10 years ago, but joining forces with the artist I am today”. Speaking about the contrasting interplay between the new record and its predecessor Home Part 1, Scott says “After completing Part 1, I was very much aware of how I wanted Part 2 to sound, look and feel. The more I record my music, the more I’ve realised I describe what I’m
looking for as colours. This method helps me to visualise what instrumentation I’d like to hear. Part 1 has a very sepia-like tone, with warm, earthy browns and creams and has an almost grainy, sonic texture. Part 2 was always going to be the complete
opposite, with a very technicolor outlook – it’s technicolor brother!”.
Whilst his own experiences are often the inspiration for his song- writing, books, films and art sit at the heart of many of his songs. Strongly rooted in the Midlands, there is undoubtedly inspiration to be found here with its rich musical heritage, and Scott often references the landscape and its characters in his writing, most
recently in the slide blues guitar track on Home Part 2 ‘Black Country Boy’, contrasted with the warmth and honesty in the song ‘Good Times’. The social realist work of writers such as Alan Sillitoe and the kitchen sink dramas that followed, such as Saturday Night, Sunday Morning and The L-shaped Room, have influenced his own lyric writing with their reflections of humble, working class life.
Among the reoccurring constants in his world are “home” and what it means to everyone. It links the mix of new songs on the album – whole-heartedly embracing it whilst blending it with dreamlike, otherworldly visions of escapism in the phantasmagorical Waltz at Nightfall and the beguiling Where I Long to Be, that reveal the troubadour at heart is never far away. His vocal style has been much referenced in ethereal terms of “ghostly”, “haunting”, “eerie” and “hypnotic”, so perhaps there is magic afoot. About his early start as a musician Scott says “Fundamentally, I’ve always been a guitar player since the age of eleven and it’s the only instrument I can hold confidently and assuredly and write songs with.
“I was closer to 20 before I started getting into the realms of acoustic guitar playing. Neil Finn is a pivotal artist who helped me to bridge the gap between understanding how I could incorporate all the things I’d learnt on the guitar and how it can be a trusty tool in pursuing my craft for writing songs. I then discovered the open tuning approach to guitar playing through John Martyn, Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Davy Graham and Joni Mitchell, which over night seemed to blow my whole creative world wide open. “With Part 2 the palette of guitar textures has widened further still with my love and rediscovery of the electric. My playing has naturally developed more of a percussive nature over time through playing more fingerstyle to accompany songs. I use the acoustic guitar to provide a structure, so I think about the drive of the rhythm whether I fingerpick or strum and how it supports my voice when writing. Interestingly, I’ve applied this fingerstyle approach to the electric guitar and it’s helped me find a new set of colours that I have introduced to full band songs.”

The John Fairhurst Band [+]

Free Before 9pm… £4 after.

Free all night with a valid NUS or Telford’s membership card.

John fairhurst

Wigan native Fairhurst has been honing his craft on the road combining his passions for people and music for years. The result is an awe inspiring wall of sound rooted in his northern blues background with gritty mournful deep-south attitude and a voice to carry it home.

Introduced to Sarod Master K. Sridhar at the age of 5 when he stayed with John’s family, John’s music has a distinctly eastern feel, with influences from the Sarod Master as well as his own travels through Asia. With a bottle-neck style blues referencing the likes of Son House and Bukka White, comparisons to the fingerpicking of John Fahey, a leaning towards the psychedelic 60’s rock of Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and the ever present influence of K. Sridhar and Indian raga, John’s music is a real melting-pot of diverse musical traditions freely hand picking tunes from the Mississippi to the Ganges.

John Fairhurst truly epitomises the modern day wandering blues man. Stories of hunger, listlessness, roaming and reckless abandon are just a prelude to John’s story, something that can only be fully understood in the presence of the man. John tells stories of wading into the sea off the New Zealand coast to smash raw oysters off rocks simply to get something to eat, but fortunately times have changed. He has since gone on to tour the globe, eat moderately well and entertain crowds at illustrious festivals such as SXSW, Glastonbury and Tarragona blues festival (Headlining slot) to name but a few. John’s enigmatic stories relayed through intense and original blues are all told using his trademark howling vocals; think Captain Beefheart meets Tom Waits.

John’s wanderlust character, lead him to New York in 2009 where he arrived with only a bag of clothes and his beloved resonator. He met a fellow blues player and proceeded to arrange and perform 14 sell out shows in a 15 days, a feat demonstrating what a gifted performer John truly is. Bare chested and tattooed (by monks in a Thai temple), when John Fairhurst walks onto a stage you know you are not only about to hear incredible blues, but the tale of one mans tireless journey leaving a lasting impression wherever he stops.

With three independent albums under his belt, he has garnered critical acclaim with The Guardian describing his 2008’s instrumental  debut album ‘Joys of Spring’ as “Truly exquisite”. His following releases 2010’s ‘John Fairhurst Band’ and 2012’s ‘Hungry Blues’ were also hailed in similar manner.

Coupled with his tenacious attitude to touring and following a summer of explosive live shows both in the UK and Europe, John has built on previous festival appearances at Glastonbury, SXSW, Green Man and Edinburgh Festival to widen his audience with appearances at Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Boomtown as well as with residencies on the Harley Davidson European Tour and a tour with Johnny Winter as well as a series of shows over the Christmas period and into next year. 2014 looks bright in John Fairhurst world with a Spring release to show case new songs, a new band and an electrifying new sound.

His work ethic onstage is reflected in his creative process with collaborations over the years with African Kora master Sekou Kouyate, Joe Driscoll (local posse), world champion beatboxers Reeps One and Bellatrix and underpinned by stickman James Breen and beatbox blues duo HeyMoonShaker.

Currently in the studio following a gruelling 200+ shows across 8 countries John is preparing for a busy few months with the release of his new electric album set for Spring 2014. Recording sessions are taking place between Bristol and London’s Dean Street Studios. With Nathan Lewis and Alex Beitzke at the helm engineering and producing, John is accompanied by old faithfuls Joe Strouzer on harp, Toby Murray on drums with the addition of new band member Luke Barter on Bass. The new album is a full on electric blues experience with John unleashing his virtuoso technique on some of his favourite guitars…. There’s a new sound and a whole lot of shows to come.

This is the sound of modern British blues….

tankus
Tankus the Henge is the London based, five wheeled, funk fuelled, open top, custom paint job, rock ‘n’ roll jalopy that comes careering round the corner on a tranquil summer’s day. Ruining the silence and disturbing the bats.

Having played over 1000 shows all over the world the Tankus the Henge live experience is something to behold. Combining wild showmanship and musical dexterity their sound incorporates rock, funk, blues, ska, roots and gypsy rhythms and their songs tell stories of wonder and woe.
Since the release of their first album in 2013 the band has toured extensively across Europe and also become a favourite on the festival circuit.
Tankus the Henge have played at:
Glastonbury, Benicassim, WOMAD (UK and Gran Canaria), Isle of Wight, Boomtown, Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude, Bestival, Les Fanfarfelues, Port Eliot, Shambala, Solfest, Artisti in Piazza, Waterford Spraoi, Secret Garden Party, Fusion, Beautiful Days and many more.
With their charismatic frontman, Jaz Delorean, looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film Tankus the Henge launch into their live shows like a band possessed. They’ve left audiences breathless at headline shows including Scala, The Garage, The Borderline and The Jazz Café. They’ve featured on TV, in major advertising campaigns, toured Albania as emissaries for the British Council and made records in Nashville, Tennessee.

All the band’s singles, ‘Cakewalk’, ‘Recurring Dream’, ‘Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker’ and ‘Weather’, have been featured extensively on radio including plays on Alex Lester’s Radio 2 show as well as Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins’ 6 Music shows.

“That’s wonderful, ..I love that. It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in. His voice is his own, …so great. I love it.”

(Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker)

Dave Davies – The Kinks

“Like The Clash from New Orleans” Nikolaj Torp Larsen – The Specials

“….a virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul. With copious helpings of R&B blues, funk, disco, Django, a dose of Dexy’s, a drop of Ray Davies and a pinch of Madness emerging throughout the eleven tracks – it’s an exciting mélange of sound.”
Simon Wells (Guardian)

Spring 2017 sees Tankus the Henge embark on a 15 date European tour that visits seven countries over a period of three weeks before returning to the UK for a further 12 shows around the country.
