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.

***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.

On Thursday November 1st, WagonWheel Presents… returns to Hop Hideout for another special night. We’ll be getting up close and personal with Andy P. Davison (The Black Thunder Revue) and Jody Davies (The Fargo Railroad Co. / King Quentin / A Prayer Away) in the intimate surrounds of the Abbeydale Road beer shop & tasting room for an unplugged acoustic performance. Due to the cosy confines of this unique venue, tickets are strictly limited and advance booking is highly recommended. When places are gone, they’ll be gone. Priced at £8 they will be on sale from http://www.wegottickets.com/wagonwheelpresents at 9am on Monday September 3rd. Doors for the event will be 7.45pm.

 

***ANDY P. DAVISON***

When he’s not playing shows as part of The Black Thunder Revue, Andy flies solo with his trusty resonator guitar. The sound is rooted in Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll, but draws on many styles.

***JODY DAVIES***

If being in three bands wasn’t enough, Jody Davies airs a more stripped down set of songs in a rare performance of his solo material. Tonight with just his vintage Gibson J-45 (you may know her as Dolly), expect raw, heartfelt songs and to hear one or two of the stories behind them.

and four times the fun. Fantastic night with Jody Davies, Andy P. Davison, Richard Kitson and Ryan Farmer playing in the round at Shakespeares last night. We were expecting something special and they more than delivered that. Big thanks to them and everybody that made it along, if you didn’t you really don’t know what you missed.

WagonWheel Presents… heads to The Greystones on Monday night for the final time in 2017. We’re excited for the return of Wild Ponies, support from Mat Wale and it’s our 11th birthday too. Full details can be found here, we hope you can join us then.

Hard Feelings when a band “pulls something out of the back catalogue” for a run of tour dates. So good to hear Oil & Rain in a fine, fine set from Case Hardin at Shakespeares on Thursday night, which rounded off a great night of music following Paul McClure and A Prayer Away. Thanks to them and those that made it out to support live music.

WagonWheel Presents… returns to Shakespeares on Saturday October 28th for another special show. We’ll be joined by Jody Davies, Richard Kitson, Andy P. Davison and Ryan Farmer who’ll be playing “in the round”. Full details can be found here. Maybe we’ll see you there too?

***BIG CONVOY***

Big Convoy formed in 2011 and is ordinarily comprised of singer/ songwriters Mat Wale, John Batchelor, bass guitarist Joe O’Brien and drummer Tom Hudson. The band has independently released several EPs and recently returned to action with brand new recording Strings Attached after a few years away. Since their debut they have become an integral part of Sheffield’s thriving Alt. Country scene. Tonight Mat & John play an acoustic set as the comeback continues.

On the afternoon of Sunday March 18th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Jody Davies, Charlie Tophill and John Batchelor to The Greystones,  appearing “in the round” for a singer/songwriter show. Advance tickets priced at £5 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/424857 and the venue (12-6pm), or entry on the day will be £6. Doors open 3pm. This is show #4 of our WagonWheelWeekend happening across March 16th, 17th and 18th.

***CHARLIE TOPHILL***

Charlie Tophill was raised in the penny arcades of a stony-beached seaside town in Kent. It was in this salty backwater that she first began singing for shrapnel and playing guitar for pennies.

After following the bright lights to North Yorkshire, she performed and toured with several bands – The Smoking Years, The Sam Griffiths Band and Curtis Eller’s American Circus – before returning to her solo roots.

Now Charlie performs her quirky brand of indie-pop with charm and humour, strumming out cheerful pessimism on an acoustic guitar. Her songs vacillate between light-hearted observation and intense feeling; catchy melodies and lyrically erudite songs delivered with honesty and warmth.

***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.
