one weekend of great music. That’s what we had over the last couple of days at Shakespeares. It began in fine style on Saturday night in the Bard’s Bar with King Quentin, The Sea Whores and The Ragged Edge, followed by a delightful afternoon in the beer garden yesterday with M&J Blues, Steve Chapman Smith, Big Convoy, Luke Whittemore and Andy P. Davison. Thanks to all involved and all who joined us to listen.

The next WagonWheel Presents… show is on Tuesday September 8th when we welcome The Rosellys and Mat Wale & Friends to The Greystones. You can read a full preview for the show here. Maybe you’ll join us too?

On Wednesday May 6th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Cale Tyson to Shakespeares. Cale Tyson is a singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN. Born in a small town in Texas, he was raised in Fort Worth, the home of Townes Van Zandt and the place where he first heard the classic country sounds that have inspired and enriched his gentle, melancholy, and undeniably whiskey-soaked sound. Cale will be touring the UK for the first time in support of his new record ‘Introducing Cale Tyson’ which is a compilation of his US released EPs.

Completing the evening’s line up will be the hazy Americana of Sheffield’s Canyon Family, and Nottingham singer/songwriter Luke Whittemore opens the show. Advance tickets priced at £8 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/307184 or entry on the night will be £10. Doors open 8pm.

 

***CALE TYSON***

Cale Tyson

With a nostalgic heart and an ear for melodies from long ago, Cale Tyson’s latest EP, High On Lonesome is a beautiful collection of songs that continue the legacy of some of the legendary songwriters whose music he first heard as a child – Gram Parsons, Guy Clark and Willie Nelson, to name but a few.

Recorded in Nashville, High On Lonesome features some of the town’s finest players including guitarist Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart), keyboard player Tyson Rogers (Don Williams), John McTigue on drums and Mike Rinne (Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs) on bass.

The end result is at once a loving tribute to the great country songwriters that have come before him and also a persuasive plea to those who might think that country music’s best days have been and gone. As long as Cale Tyson has a say in it, the best days might yet be still to come. The release was featured on CMT.com and in American Songwriter Magazine, as well as numerous other outlets. Tyson has recently been opening shows for Dwight Yoakam on the road, in addition to wrapping up a new record which heavily features Robert Ellis on guitar and vocals. In April 2014, Tyson was featured as one of PolicyMic’s “9 Real Country Music Stars of Our Generation.” In October 2014, Rolling Stone featured Tyson as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.”

***CANYON FAMILY***

Canyon Family

Born in 2012 and making their live debut at that summer’s Tramlines festival, Canyon Family play hazy Americana. A love of classic country duets and folk ballads from both sides of the Atlantic has influenced the sound. A patchwork of voices and simply plucked acoustic guitar underpins all their work, hinting at sixties folk waifs, Vashti Bunyan and Karen Dalton, as well as tragic country idols such as Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons. It’s the shuffle beat, the lilt in the voice, the glint in the eye. Its driving over the Snake Pass on a warm summer evening, with a well worn tape of “Rumours” on constant rotation.

***LUKE WHITTEMORE***

Luke Whittemore

Taking influence from Americana, the deep dark south and cult western movies. Luke Whittemore tells tales of haunted souls, love, loss and of strangers long before his tender years.
