thankfully it wasn’t a folk singer’s leg, and hopefully Kirsty McGee & Quiet Loner conquered a few new fans at The Greystones last night. Thanks to them and Charlie Tophill who opened the show with first of three fine sets of the evening.

We’ll be back on Friday June 15th when WagonWheel Presents… returns to Shakespeares for an “in the round” show with Jody Davies, Big Convoy‘s Mat Wale & John Batchelor, and Joe Armitage. Full details on this show can be found here. We hope you can join us then.

it proved to be only 60% of a weekender, but what we were left with was pretty special. Thanks to everybody that joined us on Friday and Saturday, not least Rod Picott, Boss Caine, M&J Blues, Andy P. Davison, Franc Cinelli, The Fargo Railroad Co. and The Lucky Strikes for the exceptional entertainment.

Sadly the weather put paid to Sunday’s two gigs at The Greystones, and left us hanging on 298 WagonWheel Presents… shows promoted. But we’ll be back for more very soon. Next will likely be Monday May 14th when we welcome Kirsty McGee & Quiet Loner. Keep an eye on the Gigs page for details of this and more new shows we’ll be adding over the next few weeks.

***UPDATE***

Unfortunately due to the weather and travel conditions for all concerned, we’ve sadly had to cancel today’s (Sunday) shows. For anybody who has bought advance tickets, refunds will be available from point of purchase. Really sorry to have to do this after three great shows already this weekend. We hope to arrange alternative dates for all the acts who were due to play today as soon as possible.

 

Over the weekend of March 16th, 17th and 18th, WagonWheel Presents… brings our second WagonWheelWeekender to The Greystones, Sheffield. We’ll be bringing you five shows across the three days, featuring the usual mix of local, UK and international talent that you’d come to expect from a WagonWheel show.

On Friday night we’re joined by US singer/songwriter Rod Picott, playing songs from brand new double album. The sprawling twenty-two song Out Past The Wires ranges from whispery ballads to guitar driven rockers and hits every musical spot between. Opening the show will be Boss Caine, the main musical vehicle of hard living, permanently gigging, story telling, troubadouring, award winning, UK singer songwriter, Daniel Lucas.

Saturday afternoon sees the first of two “in the round” shows, when sharing songs and stories will be father & son duo M&J Blues, free-wheeling troubadour Franc Cinelli and The Black Thunder Revue frontman Andy P. Davison playing a solo set. All three acts will be on stage from the off for this early show.

We’ve a fine double bill of bands for Saturday night, with local favourites The Fargo Railroad Co. joined by The Lucky Strikes. The Fargo Railroad Co. are a southern rock / Americana inspired 4 piece band, whilst The Lucky Strikes have been described as “Blues/ Garage/ Americana, spaghetti-western, fiddle powered, howlin’, heavin’ rock and roll”. We think that adds up to a great show. Franc Cinelli returns to get the night under way too with a short solo/acoustic set.

For Sunday afternoon we return to the “in the round” format, this time in the company of Fargo’s Jody Davies airing some solo material, Charlie Tophill strumming out cheerful pessimism on an acoustic guitar and a man who’s been playing WagonWheel shows almost as long as we’ve been doing them, John Batchelor.

Finally on Sunday night, Southern Tenant Folk Union return to Sheffield with their ‘work in progress’ tour, road testing songs from forthcoming new album Willie Rough. Southern Tenant Folk Union are the Edinburgh based six-piece string band that over a series of albums have produced a thought provoking and arresting take on roots & folk music. Support comes from Paul Handyside, the folk and roots singer songwriter who began his musical career with eighties indie darlings Hurrah!

Doors for all evening shows open at 8pm and shows finish by 11pm.

Doors for afternoon shows open at 3pm and shows finish by 5.45pm.
