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?

On the afternoon of Saturday March 17th, 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.

For details of the full weekend line up see http://www.wagonwheelpresents.co.uk.

 

***JODY DAVIES***

If being in three bands wasn’t enough, Jody Davies also airs a more stripped down set of songs in his rare performances of his solo material. 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.

 

***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.

***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.

 

***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.

***RICHARD KITSON***

In a typical set Richard can be found playing classic country and delta blues covers  alongside his self-penned folk/blues style songs. A skilled raconteur, Kitson often embellishes his sets with humorous links and background stories to his songs.

When I grow up I want to play guitar like Richard Kitson.” Otis Gibbs

***RYAN FARMER***

Ryan Farmer is an Americana singer songwriter hailing from Nottingham. Taking influence from the blues of the Mississippi Delta, the traditional folk of the Appalachian Mountains and the honky tonk from a Texas bar room, prepare for songs to make you dance, drink, cry and praise the lord in the space of a few minutes.
