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.

***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.

***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.

 

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. Full weekend tickets for all five shows (including this one) are also available priced at £35 from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/424859. 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.

***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.
