another “we’ve only had one show this year” Christmas post. Damned good one it was though.

The good news is we currently have FOUR shows on sale for next year, with more to follow. Take a look at the Gigs page for details of when you can catch Steve Dawson, The Fargo Railroad Co., John Statz, M&J Blues, M G Boulter, Rod Picott and Paul Handyside.

Here’s to 2022 being better, it was great to see so many of you a few weeks ago and hopefully we can do more of it soon.

Thanks to everybody that did join us in November. Have yourselves a Merry Christmas.


p.s. This is Clarence. He’s used to greeting a lot of our out of town visitors at the top of our stairs when they stay over. He’s feeling a little lonely lately but looking forward to better days too.

It’s that time of year when i normally write something here about what a great a year it’s been and the gigs we’re looking forward to next year. But i guess we all know 2020 happened.

So that’s left us with a grand total of one (1) show this year, with four acts gracing our stage (what a show it was though). It seems i didn’t have to worry about having raised the bar.

As far as 2021 goes, we do have some shows pencilled in, when there’s any news to tell you i’ll do just that.

Thanks as always to the folk that made it to and played our show of the year. Be good to yourselves and each other. If you’ve the pennies to spare, maybe treat to yourself to that CD or T-shirt you’ve been meaning to get around to buying from your favourite purveyor of Americana misery & heartbreak.

Have as merry Christmas as you can. To better days.

another year gone already? 2018 saw a modest total of 15 WagonWheel Presents… shows (though we did lose 2 to Snowmageddon that wiped out the Sunday of our Weekender), with a total of 37 different acts, 11 of whom were brand new faces to our little stage(s). That’s still not bad going i reckon. Among those 15 was our 300th show, we’re almost starting to get the hang of it.

We’ll be back for more in 2019, and we’ve got a few belters lined up already. Confirmed shows for next year are:

Angel Snow @ The Greystones, Tuesday March 5th

Good Lovelies @ The Greystones, Monday April 8th

Josh Harty + The Fargo Railroad Co. @ The Greystones, Tuesday April 16th

Curtis Eller’s American Circus + Paul McClure @ The Greystones, Friday June 7th

Rachel Harrington @ The Greystones, Sunday July 14th

Full details for all of the above including ticket links can be found over on the Gigs page.

Big thanks as always to everybody that’s joined us this year and been a part of what we do. Here’s hoping Santa is kind with the tunes he brings you all, and all the best for 2019 and beyond.

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

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.
