a better night than one M&J duo? Two M&J duos of course. Amazing show as always from Josh Harty at The Greystones last night, complete with some guest guitar from Sheffield slinger Mark Lyall, a really special “i was there” one off. Superb opening from M&J Blues once again too. Thanks to them and Josh and you if you were there.

We’ll be back at The Greystones on October 30th with Wild Ponies and Mat Wale (details here), but next for WagonWheel Presents… we return to Shakespeares tomorrow night in the company of Case Hardin, Paul McClure and A Prayer Away. More good times await, a full preview can be found here, we hope you can join us then.

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.

***JOSH HARTY***

Josh Harty is a messenger. A North Dakota songsmith. A third generation musician, son of a small town police chief and preacher, he often muses that growing up he figured he’d end up going to jail or going to hell. Between the ages of five and eleven he sang gospel and country with his father at just about every Lutheran Church, Eagles Club and Senior Center in the Midwest. By age twelve Harty had made two records (cassettes) with his dad; achieving sales of 10,000 copies.

After playing in several cover bands in Fargo during his teens, Harty starting his songwriting career when a local booking agent asked him if he could perform 45 minutes worth of original material for an opening gig. He said of course he could and set to work writing the songs that would become the material for his first album “Three Day Notice.” After just a week of writing and rehearsing these new songs, Josh received a standing ovation and encore request from the audience while opening for BB King!

His second solo project, 2008’s A Long List of Lies (Magnolia Recording Co.) debuted at number eight on the European Americana chart (ahead of the latest Van Morrison album). Produced, recorded and mastered in Madison, Wisconsin’s legendary Smart Studios, the album captures Harty’s “clean guitar attack and a finger style that glistens with a razor’s edge.” (Andy Moore, Wisconsin Public Television)

In 2011 Harty released Nowhere, which was recorded at Base Camp Studios in Bozeman, MT by acclaimed performer, producer and engineer Chris Cunningham (Storyhill). 2014 saw the release of two duo albums Harty recorded between 2012 and 2013. 12 August with fellow Americana artist John Statz and The Attic Session with long time collaborator Blake Thomas.

Over the last five years Harty has toured tirelessly in 41 States and countries across Europe and the United Kingdom. He demoed songs for his new album with George Lucas in Brno, Czech Republic (released as a download called “The Brno Session”), in New York City, and in Gleisdorf, Austria with Chuck Lemonds.

His latest album, Holding On, was recorded at DNA Music Labs in Madison, WI and was produced by Blake Thomas and Mark Whitcomb. The album features songs written on the road over the last 2 ½ years performed by a full band. Having the base tracks performed live in the studio, the album captures the feel and energy of a true Americana band.

The touring bug has never left Josh as he continuously travels across Europe and North America. More than just moving along, he’s spending plenty of time in the communities along the way, from Brooklyn to Haarlem, from London to Portland. Harty is always looking for that balance between the rolling road and the people who inspire him, trading stories around kitchen tables and theatre stages. His live shows prove that good storytelling combined with journeyman musicianship is as American as music gets.

I can already hear Bob Harris waxing lyrical about this in the early hours of the morning on BBC Radio 2!Fatea Magazine

his voice has that perfect combination of resignation and hopeAmericana UK

might be a word heard more often in America, but it could certainly be applied to a whole evening of live music as happened in Sheffield last night at The Greystones. A more than wonderful evening was had in the company of Kelley McRae & Matt Castelein, Josh Harty and M&J Blues. Big thanks to them and all who were there to enjoy it with us, i think it’s safe to say you did. Lots of happy faces and nice comments.

We’ll be back at The Greystones on June 10th with John Statz (details here). We’ve several shows at Shakespeares before then though, starting tomorrow Saturday March 28th. Joining us in the Bard’s Bar will be Tomorrow We Sail, The Listeners and Idiot Son. Full details for this show can be found here. Maybe we’ll see you there?
