old friends, and a little bit of magic in the air made for one of those shows that truly was a special one at The Greystones last night. But we don’t need to tell those of you who were there that right? Massive thanks to Josh Harty, The Fargo Railroad Co., special guest Mark Lyall and everyone who joined us, it wasn’t one anybody will forget in a hurry.

WagonWheel Presents… will be back in action on Friday June 7th when Curtis Eller’s American Circus comes to town. Paul McClure opens the show, full details of which you can find here. Be sure to secure your place under the Big Top.

On Tuesday April 16th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Josh Harty back to The Greystones. Harty’s unique blend of American music has become a must-hear for those who keep the tradition of country, blues and folk close to their hearts.

Advance tickets priced at £8 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/457872 and the venue (12-6pm), or entry on the night will be £10. Doors open 7.45pm.

 

***JOSH HARTY***

Josh Harty is a messenger. A North Dakota songsmith. “A true son of the heartland whose bold defiance and riveting delivery channel the essence of American music” (Glide Magazine). As the son of a small town police chief and preacher, grandson of a South Dakota polka legend, Josh grew up performing with his dad at every Lutheran Church, Eagles Club, Moose Lodge and Rotary Club in the Upper Midwest. Having released several internationally-acclaimed albums and performing across the US & Europe, it is clear that Harty was born and bred for this. His live shows prove that good storytelling combined with journeyman musicianship is as authentic as music gets.

When Josh is not on the road, he resides in Madison, WI where he enjoys carpentry projects of all kinds and is an active member of the local music scene. Josh is also a long-time member of Folk Alliance and a founding member of The Wisconsin Room: an organization that promotes WI artists to an international audience and brings world- class music to Madison from elsewhere in the form of intimate gigs at various venues.

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

***THE FARGO RAILROAD CO.***

The Fargo Railroad Co. are a southern rock / Americana inspired 4 piece band from Sheffield, UK. Established in 2013 they have already gathered a loyal fan base and continue to add to their numbers playing shows throughout the UK. What is clear is that these boys enjoy being on stage and love playing the music they are producing.

They share a distinct and united love of music with a breadth of appreciation that is truly eclectic – all of this has come together to form their current sound, which has settled in the broad and deep ocean of Southern Rock. Looking at the mighty works of Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, ’38 Special etc, doffing a cap to the sweet 70’s sound of Cash, Young, Dylan whilst bringing in more contemporary vibes of Blackberry Smoke and Jason Isbell.

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.

to go (clunk!) to find a better evening’s entertainment than we had at The Greystones last night. 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. Just be careful if you feed him after midnight, you may wake up to find he’s done the washing up.

WagonWheel Presents… is back at The Greystones on Tuesday May 3rd for the eagerly awaited return of Cale Tyson. Cale’s bringing his full band this time and support comes from The BearCats. Full details for this show can be found here.

Before then though we’ll be at Shakespeares on Saturday April 30th for our last show of this month. Joining us then will be the man who played our first show, Mr Roger Davies. You’ll get sets from Adam Myers and Adrian Bates too. The full preview for this one can be found here.

Maybe see you there?
