for an end of year round up, but i’m going to do one anyway.

2017 saw us take in 19 shows, featuring 46 different acts including 9 new faces to the WagonWheel stage. One of those was a brand new venue too with an unplugged special at Hop Hideout.

More of the same in 2018 then? We’ve got this lot lined up so far, including our second WagonWheel Weekender in March:

Thursday February 1st @ The Greystones : Quiet Loner (Battle For The Ballot show) + Kevin Titterton

Friday March 16th @ The Greystones : Rod Picott + Boss Caine

Saturday March 17th (afternoon) @ The Greystones : M&J Blues + Franc Cinelli + Andy P. Davison

Saturday March 17th (evening) @ The Greystones : The Fargo Railroad Co. + The Lucky Strikes + Franc Cinelli

Sunday March 18th (afternoon) @ The Greystones : A Prayer Away + Charlie Tophill + John Batchelor

Sunday March 18th (evening) @ The Greystones : Southern Tenant Folk Union + Paul Handyside

Saturday September 1st @ The Greystones : The BearCats + Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers

Friday November 16th @ The Greystones : Richard Kitson + Ryan Farmer


I guess that’ll do for starters? Tickets for all February and March shows are available online at http://www.wegottickets.com/wagonwheelpresents and from the venue. Shows later in the year will be on sale soon. Thanks to everybody that joined us in 2017. Hope to see you for more again soon.

seems to be, that wasn’t bad? Felt like a pretty good Sunday to me, not least due to an outstanding bunch of live sets from Dave Woodcock & The Dead Comedians, Joe Solo, Ash Gray & The Burners, Franc Cinelli, The Black Thunder Revue, Quiet Loner, Killing Fields Of Ontario, Idiot Son, Paul Handyside, Rory Cannon, Mat Wale & Little Convoy, Colin Mounsey, Massy Ferguson and Dave Woodcock. Big thanks as always to all of them, and to everybody that came along to a busy day at Shakespeares for our Tramlines show.

Our next show sees us venture to the Hop Hideout for the first time on Friday August 4th for an unplugged performance from The Fargo Railroad Co. Unfortunately, unless you were one of the lucky few who secured a ticket within the first hour or so of them going on sale, this show is already sold out.

So your next chance to join us for a WagonWheel Presents… show will likely be on Friday August 11th when Rachel Harrington returns to The Greystones. We’ve also got an opening set from Paul McClure and full details can be found here, maybe we’ll see you there?

So today marks 8 years since the very first WagonWheel show. On 30th October 2006 at The Grapes we did this:


There have been a few more dodgy flyers since show #1, and few hopefully not so. We’ve just posted some of them here on our Facebook page.

Those 8 years have seen 219 shows (the full list can be found by clicking here) at 6 different venues, and we start year 9 this Saturday with The Fargo Railroad Co., The Farewell State and Mordrake at Shakespeares. More details for this one can be found on the Gigs page.

Thanks to all who’ve joined us at either side of the mic so far.

A song a day…

a highly unoriginal title, for a highly unoriginal idea, but after almost 7 years and 200 shows with over 200 different artists, there’s probably enough material to keep this new page running for a good while at least.

So over the coming months we’ll be posting songs from some of the good folk heading to a WagonWheel Presents… show in the near future, or looking back at some of those who’ve graced the WagonWheel stage in the past, to give you a taste of what we do, what you might have missed, and what’s to come.

The logical place to start would have been the beginning, so instead today’s offering covers our next gig, and you can find it here: https://wagonwheelmedia.wordpress.com/a-song-a-day/

More tomorrow…
