A band on Ship [+]

Free Entry

ABOS have been around a long time with collectively over a century of music making under their fingers.

At the core of their fluid collective lies a love of real ale, cider and music, importantly in that order.

“You can have beer without music,  but music without beer is just wrong”

Perhaps their music sounds better after a pint or two, but that could be a universal truth.

These write ups are often heavy on name dropping and light on truth. I wouldn’t stoop that low.

One of the band played bass for Paul McCartney live on radio one.

One of the band was in The Incredible string band.

Two of the band were in Whitesnake (Acoustic)

Two of the band were in the Family Mahone, and one of them once drank half a pint of absinthe for a bet.

All four of them are in Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast, who’s latest album includes a bonus track written by and featuring Roy Wood.

Expect bass and mandolin with guitar, fiddle and accordion. Add in possible guests and you get the idea. From Playford to Dillon via all points in between.

Songs and tunes plundered from 600 years of tradition will leave your feet tapping and your glasses empty,  as you join in the inevitable journey to closing time and a taxi home.

Fine Lines [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

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


Fine Lines is a project started by singer/songwriter David Boardman in 2016. A long time lover of all things folky and rootsy, David has been writing acoustic based music for many years and has now collected those songs under the banner of Fine Lines.

Influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan & The Band, John Martyn, and Mercury era Rod Stewart, Ray La Montagne, these stripped back, mature songs deal in heartbreak and soul baring. Centred around the core duo of David and co-vocalist Zoe Blythe and accompanied by a cast of strolling players, these fine songs shine through.

In their time together, Fine Lines have already played with the likes of folk giants Merry Hell, Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast and John Power (The La’s/Cast). The band’s John Kettle produced debut album ‘Hour Of Need’ is out now on Parade Recordings and they will be playing live throughout the UK. The second album ‘Gaslight Roses’ will be released March 22 2019.

Amy Montgomery [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

Free all night with as student card or Telford’s membership.


“Astounding voice. Amy is a great sonic explorer in the tradition of John Martyn and Janis Joplin” – BBC Northern Ireland
Fresh from stunning debut performances at Glastonbury, Black Deer and Cambridge Folk Festivals, Northern Irish singer songwriter Amy Montgomery has burst onto the scene with not only a captivating live show, but now with her newest single ‘Tree Song (Branch Out & Nourish My Veins)’.
The song is a self-produced moody, atmospheric journey through soundscapes of delicate trippy undertones complimented by Amy’s powerful voice, slowly swelling towards a glowing crescendo that flaunts both her song writing and incredible vocal range.
The video acts as the perfect accompaniment, featuring Montgomery’s trademark earthy spiritual influences, choreographed with a demented ritualistic dance, all performed in an abandoned house in the woods, an environment identical to the one painted by the music.
The first thing that grabs your attention about Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice, honed from relentless busking across her native Emerald Isle. At 20 years of age, she is already a musical force of nature, performing with great intensity on both guitar and keyboards.
Her vocal style channels the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick but with very modern attiude and spiritual elements in tow. Performing bare footed, adorned in war paint and flamboyantly designed stage outfits, she presents a fearless and confident persona both as a performer and singer.
Her latest single is the first taste of a newly crafted musical direction, accompanied by her talented band featuring producer Michael Mormecha (Drums, vocals, percussion) Zach Trouton (Keys, guitars, vocals & percussion) and bassist Benton Flavelle-Cobain.
Her previous 2018 track ‘Dangerous’ also picked up plays on Bob Harris’s Radio 2 show as well as various plays across BBC Radio Ulster with particular support from BBC’s Across The Line.
Amy and her band ventured out for their first European shows in February this year. During the 13 dates, they shared their fresh, alternative sound with fans in Ireland, Germany, France, Switzerland and England.
This summer will see also Amy performing at a number of festivals throughout the UK and Europe followed in September by her first ever three headline shows in London, Dublin and Belfast as she continues to spread her ethereal sonic bliss.
