easily confused, but i don’t think there is any mistaking how good an evening we enjoyed in the company of Otis Gibbs last night, and indeed Boss Caine who got the night off to a fine start. Thanks to them and everybody who came along to a busy night at The Greystones too.

Wednesday June 28th is when WagonWheel Presents… returns to The Backroom for our next show. Joining us then will be Amelia Curran and Paul McClure. Maybe you will too? Full details can be found here.

well until 2017 at least, but an evening with Boss Caine, Joe Solo and Dave Woodcock & the latest new Dead Comedian was a pretty fine way to finish off another year of WagonWheel gigs. Big thanks to them and everybody who joined us on Friday night.

a bad way to spend a Sunday, was it? Thanks to everybody that came out to our Tramlines show at Shakespeares yesterday. Was nice to see lots of faces around for most (and some for all) of the day. We’re pretty sure you all enjoyed it as much as we did. Big thanks of course as well to The Fargo Railroad Co., Stoney, The Payroll Union, Paul McClure, Walton Hesse, Tom Baxendale, Coma Girls, Boss Caine, The Ragged Edge, David Venn, The Clench, Bob Collum, The Sea Whores and Roaming Son for the fine entertainment. 2017 would have a lot to follow…

WagonWheel Presents… regular shows are here all year round though and we return to The Greystones on Wednesday August 3rd in the company of Curtis Eller’s American Circus. Those lovely Silver Darlings will be along to open the show too. You can find full details here. Maybe we’ll see you then too?

***OTIS GIBBS***

Otis Gibbs is a Songwriter, storyteller, painter, photographer and planter of 7,176 trees. He once wrestled a bear, and lost. He has been described as “The best unknown songwriter in music today.” If you ask him, he’ll simply say he’s a Folk Singer. His latest album is Mount Renraw.

“This album was recorded in my living room on my 50th birthday. My friends kept saying I should throw myself a big party for my birthday, but I’m not a big party guy. Instead, I wanted to do something creative that fits into how I try to live my life. That’s when I decided to record this album. This is who I am and this is what I do. It’s the perfect way to celebrate 50 years of creativity.”

“We live on top of a big hill in East Nashville surrounded by musicians, artists, writers and other creative misfits. In the 1800s, this land was owned by Percy Warner. He is somewhat famous for bringing electricity to the rural South. He called his home Renraw, which is Warner spelled backwards. I’ve called our home Mount Renraw for the last 9 years. Since I recorded the record at home, I figured Mount Renraw would be a fitting title.”

Otis also hosts a podcast called Thanks For Giving Damn which features your favourite musicians, journalists and historians sharing memories, backstage stories and history lessons. His podcast quickly became a cult favourite and lead to him hosting Country Built on Pandora (USA) where Otis tells stories about the history of country music to his 2 million+ subscribers. He grew up in Wanamaker, Indiana, but now lives in East Nashville with his long time partner, Amy Lashley.

“With a low tolerance for bullshit and a guiding principle of maintaining his artistic integrity no matter what, Gibbs’ songwriting is deeply personal and profound. It’s plain to see Otis Gibbs is a man you should give a damn about. ” Rolling Stone

It’s been playing round these parts for weeks now, and we’ve yet to tire of a single word or note. It really is an exceptional set of songs.” Penny Black Music.co.uk

Gibbs is a Midwesterner with a long beard, a trucker’s hat and and a bag of sharply observed country-rock songs, some far enough to the left side of the political fence to make him a spiritual descendent of Woody Guthrie and brother of Steve Earle.” The Boston Herald

With a proper growl, a lefty sensibility and a well picked acoustic guitar, Otis Gibbs is the Steve Earle of his generation, albeit without the drug history or the divorces.” Americana-uk.com

***BOSS CAINE***

Boss Caine are a folk/Americana collective from York, England. A tight knit, but evolving, line-up of local musicians centred around the songs of front man and ‘Yorkshire Cowboy’ – Daniel Lucas (aka GT Turbo), a man described as ‘having a voice that makes Louis Armstrong sound kinda girly’.

Boss Caine released their debut album: ‘The Ship That Sailed’, on independent label Little Num Num Music, in 2010. The record contains a selection of tunes written by Lucas over the last few years; a time that saw him leave his home town for London, before returning to York and putting together the line-up of local musicians that would become Boss Caine. Years of hard living, hard drinking and love turned sour inform an album that at times visits some quite dark places, but is ultimately carried along by a healthy dose of Northern positivity and stoicism.

The album was recorded in the North Yorkshire countryside at ‘The Factory of Unprofessional Sound’ and sees Boss Caine’s core team of Lucas, Andy Gaines and Sam Forrest joined by many of the musicians who have played in the band over the last few years. The follow up The Rhythm And The Rhyme is out now.

Stunning UK talent!!…Really Something!!” – Bob Harris BBC Radio 2

…Tom Waits singing Ryan Adams if they had both had the good fortune to grow up in Yorkshire….” – The Fly

Boss Caine are the real deal. They will rip your heart out and toss it back to you many songs later doused in whiskey, soul and more emotions than you know how to handle!” – Northern Music

***JOE SOLO***

Joe Solo

Joe Solo is an award-winning musician, writer, poet, activist, broadcaster and washing machine engineer from Scarborough. His musical odyssey began in 1987 fronting a bash-em-out band at school, and has seen him play seven countries either as lynchpin of pop-punk upstarts Lithium Joe or hammering out his unique brand of Folk, Punk and Blues in his own right.

On top of releasing fourteen albums since 2004, Solo has written books and had them written about him; runs a research project on the Hull Pals Battalions in the First World War; has worked with underprivileged children to help them write their lives in song; run a weekly radio show; and still found time to open for the likes of Chris Wood, David Rovics, Attila the Stockbroker, Otis Gibbs, Robb Johnson, Edgar Broughton, TV Smith, Paul Simmonds, Emily Portman, Pete Wylie, The Blockheads and Billy Bragg; whilst his songs have been played by John Peel on Radio One, Mike Harding on Radio Two and Tom Robinson on  BBC6Music.

In May 2015 Joe helped create WE SHALL OVERCOME, a campaign pushing for a positive response from the music community to the poverty and hardship inflicted on ordinary people by the government’s austerity program. Since October 2015 the movement has put on 550 gigs in 135 towns and cities across 8 countries on 3 continents raising an estimated £225,000 in cash, food, clothing and bedding for those hardest hit. WSO scooped the People’s Choice gong at the annual Yorkshire Grassroots Music Awards on 16th October 2015, and on the back of his efforts The Morning Star named Solo ‘Human Being of the Year’.

2016 saw Joe and The Hurriers front-man Tony Wright collaborate on ‘May Day Festival of Solidarity‘. The event, which brought together voices from music, poetry and politics to celebrate International Worker’s Day, took place in Barnsley on  May 1st and a packed house saw stunning performances from artists as varied as Grace Petrie, Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers, Attila the Stockbroker, Lizzie Nunnery & Vidar Norheim and The Wakes. 2017’s event is in planning.

In October 2016 he was awarded the ‘Outstanding Songwriting’ prize at Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Music Awards for his work on the album ‘Never Be Defeated’ telling the stories of the men and women of Hatfield during the 1984-85 Miner’s Strike.

Live, Solo has a growing reputation as both a performer and raconteur, being both thought-provoking, comical and punch-the-air political often in the same breath. He is not an artist you forget in a hurry.

The perfect protest singer.” – R2 Magazine

I was struck by the passion of his delivery combined with his sense of fun – a true entertainer in the very best sense of the word.”- FATEA

I heard this noise coming off the stage, I went WOW, whoever that is I’ve got to go and check him out and there was just this one man on the stage blowing up a storm with an acoustic guitar!” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

***DAVE WOODCOCK***

Dave Woodcock

Described by Americana UK as “The next big thing from Sheffield”, Dave Woodcock & The Dead Comedians released latest album Medicine in 2015 to great critical acclaim. The follow up to their 2011 album “Poisoned Nights & Bar Room Nights”, it found its way on to several end of year ‘best of’ lists and saw them raise the bar once again.. They deliver booze soaked rock ‘n’ roll echoing Springsteen, Strummer and with a nod towards the likes of The Hold Steady. Tonight Dave plays a solo set.

9/10….the finest blue collar heartland rock this side of the Atlantic” – Toast Magazine

“The perfect rock and roll band… absolutely alive with electricity and excitement”Now Then Magazine
