as the great Lonesome Bob once sang, and while last night wasn’t what we originally had planned at The Greystones, we found ourselves in the company of Ash Gray, Blind River Scare, John Batchelor and Adrian Bates instead for what still proved to be a great night. Thanks to them and those who made it along.

We’re back at The Greystones in August with Rachel Harrington plus Paul McClure (Friday 11th) and Curtis Eller’s American Circus (Wednesday 30th). Tickets for those are on sale here or from the venue.

Before then though for WagonWheel Presents… it’s our Tramlines show on Sunday July 23rd at Shakespeares. Details of who is joining us this year can be found here. Two stages, free entry, our show starts at 2pm, see you there?

to go (clunk!) to find a better evening’s entertainment than we had at The Greystones last night. Three amazing sets from Josh Harty, The Fargo Railroad Co. and M&J Blues made for a great, great night. Big thanks to them and all you who came along. Josh’s tour rolls on to Nottingham today. Just be careful if you feed him after midnight, you may wake up to find he’s done the washing up.

***ASH GRAY***

 

Ash Gray is a troubadour in the truest sense.

Born in US East Coast steeltown of Pittsburgh, the middle son of expat Yorkshire parents, he’s had an eye on the highway practically ever since he was old enough to play a gig.Raised in Austin, Texas – the Live Music Capital Of The World – Ash cut his musical teeth on the vibrant East Sixth Street, South Lamar and beyond, playing for tips in roots-rock bands like Roosterbilly and The Self-Righteous Brothers, the late 90s saw the emergence The High Class Family Butchers after time spent in London, time spent in New York City saw Ash scratching that hard-rock itch as guitarslinger with legendary Epic recording artists The Cycle Sluts From Hell before shifting gear, forming the acoustic folk-pop harmony band Ash Gray & The Girls in 2012.

Returning to the UK, Ash decided to rediscover his roots, eventually setting up base in Sheffield. Falling in with the Steel City’s own acoustic and Americana scene, Ash has been gigging regularly across the UK ever since, dividing his time fairly equally between Austin and Sheffield (and London and NYC as time allows). Taking his lead from one of Texas’ greatest musical sons, it seem Ash Gray just can’t wait to be on the road again. A new solo album is due this summer.

***BLIND RIVER SCARE***

 

Blind River Scare is a vehicle for the Original Americana, Alt-Country & Roots influenced songs of South Wales based singer, songwriter & guitarist Tim Manning. There have been various incarnations of the band over the years, dating back to their original releases in 2005. The latest recording “Pastures New” features a three piece line up, reflecting the bands more acoustic side. Tonight Tim plays a solo show.

***JOHN BATCHELOR***

 

A northern boy pretending he’s from Tennessee, John Batchelor is as a singer of modernfolk songs born from experience. There are flushes of country and blues and he has a distinctive voice pitched somewhere between classic crooning and modern mournfulness.

For the last few years you’ll have been more likely to catch John playing alongside Mat Wale in alt-country band Big Convoy, or more recently with instrumental rock outfit The Hill People.

***ADRIAN BATES***

 

Singer/songwriter Adrian Bates hails from South Elmsall. Taking influence from the likes of Neil Young, Ryan Adams and Nick Drake, he’s been appearing regularly at venues across Yorkshire since embarking on a solo career. He is set to release debut EP “Small World”.

There is no tractor day in Sheffield. Instead we have an annual Otis Gibbs day. It works a little something like this. You bring your favourite Otis Gibbs to town. He’ll sing a few songs. Tell a few stories. Everybody has a mighty fine time. That’s pretty much how things went down at The Greystones last night. Thanks to all the nice folks that came along, Otis, and Adrian Bates for opening the show. Keep your eyes peeled for Otis Gibbs day 2016.

WagonWheel Presents… has got plenty more of the good stuff to come before then though. Not least the small matter of a 14 act Tramlines special at Shakespeares on Sunday July 26th. If you like the sound of hearing Neil McSweeney, Ash Gray & Couch Fire, Mat Wale & Friends, Walton Hesse, Joe Solo, Anytown, The Janskys, Pete David (The Payroll Union), Robert Chaney, Pete Gow (Case Hardin), Richard Kitson, E.R. Thorpe, William Barstow and Blue Rooster all for absolutely free, then take a look here for full details. The show will start at 3pm and you don’t need any fancy wristband, just bring your ears and enjoy. We’ll see you then?

***ROGER DAVIES***

Roger Davies New

Roger Davies’ reputation has been growing rapidly over the past few years across his native Yorkshire. Progressing from songs about local characters and to Saturday nights out in local pubs to performances with Brighouse & Rastrick and Skelmanthorpe Brass Bands, his appeal has widened significantly.

Known as the Yorkshire Songwriter and Bard of Calderdale he is the music equivalent of Yorkshire poet Ian McMillan, with words that resonate Yorkshire but contain universal themes of home, love, art and everyday life.

Roger has performed at Beverley Folk Festival, Shrewbury Folk Festival and many others and makes frequent appearances on BBC Radio Leeds.

Beautiful songs. A bit like the Jimmy Webb of West Yorkshire” – Ian McMillan, BBC Radio 3

The best thing I’ve seen in 20 years. If I had a torch I’d throw it to him Harvey Andrews

When Roger walked on stage to a sold out Square Chapel in Halifax, it quickly became obvious why this self styled ‘Yorkshire Songwriter’ commands such a strong following. His songs are a reflection of the world around us. His lyrics can be funny, as in ‘The Beerbelly Blues’, thought provoking or, as in his tender ballad ‘Stephanie’, simply exquisite.” Halifax Courier

***ADAM MYERS***

Adam Myers

Adam Myers is a Singer Songwriter from the North of England. Adam has worked with numerous bands over the years and has built up quite a catalogue of songs. His most recent partnership with Rory Garforth (as Garforth & Myers) resulted in a beautifully crafted album with a sound reminiscent of 60’s psychedelic folk and carefully crafted multi part harmonies.

Acoustic music like this and of this standard will always straddle the border between folk, pop, jazz etc and may even be popped into a new category altogether, whether it likes it or not. Cross pollination is always good though, especially if it draws audiences in from several directions. These particular ears are keen to hear more.Northern Sky (on Garforth & Myers)
