but it was a real pleasure to have M.G. Boulter bring the seaside to town last night playing songs from his latest album Clifftown with his fabulous band. Big thanks to them and E.R. Thorpe for a wonderful opening set. We hope those of you who joined us at The Greystones enjoyed it as much as we did.

It’s a little while until our next show as we ease back in to a more normal schedule. WagonWheel Presents… will return on Thursday June 30th when we welcome Rod Picott for his rearranged UK tour. Support comes from Paul Handyside. Tickets are on sale here, as always they’re cheaper in advance than on the door.

All incoming show updates can be found here, we’ll hopefully see you at one of them.

day in the sun saw us enjoying two stages full of great music at Shakespeares yesterday. Big thanks to Stoney, Joe Solo, The Barker Ranch Highwaymen, Mat Wale, The Holding Hands, Paul Handyside, The Swells, Andy Whitehouse, The December Flowers, All Day Dog’s Breakfast, The Farewell State, Buffalo Ghost, Alexis & Ash running the downstairs desk, John Batchelor who found time for a guest spot with Mat Wale whilst keeping everything sounding like it should upstairs and not least everybody that came along. It was great to see so many friendly faces (especially some in WagonWheel T-shirts too), and lots of people sticking around for most of the day. But a bit of a rest now…

WagonWheel Presents… will be back in action on Friday September 20th when we return to Shakespeares for a slightly smaller scale show but equally quality packed. We’ll be in the company of M.G. Boulter and Banjo Jen and tickets are on sale here now. That’s swiftly followed on Monday September 23rd by our next show at The Greystones when we welcome John Statz and Andy P. Davison & The Soul Preachin’ Co. Keep an eye on the Gigs page for news on upcoming shows.

***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.

 

Over the weekend of March 16th, 17th and 18th, WagonWheel Presents… brings our second WagonWheelWeekender to The Greystones, Sheffield. We’ll be bringing you five shows across the three days, featuring the usual mix of local, UK and international talent that you’d come to expect from a WagonWheel show.

On Friday night we’re joined by US singer/songwriter Rod Picott, playing songs from brand new double album. The sprawling twenty-two song Out Past The Wires ranges from whispery ballads to guitar driven rockers and hits every musical spot between. Opening the show will be Boss Caine, the main musical vehicle of hard living, permanently gigging, story telling, troubadouring, award winning, UK singer songwriter, Daniel Lucas.

Saturday afternoon sees the first of two “in the round” shows, when sharing songs and stories will be father & son duo M&J Blues, free-wheeling troubadour Franc Cinelli and The Black Thunder Revue frontman Andy P. Davison playing a solo set. All three acts will be on stage from the off for this early show.

We’ve a fine double bill of bands for Saturday night, with local favourites The Fargo Railroad Co. joined by The Lucky Strikes. The Fargo Railroad Co. are a southern rock / Americana inspired 4 piece band, whilst The Lucky Strikes have been described as “Blues/ Garage/ Americana, spaghetti-western, fiddle powered, howlin’, heavin’ rock and roll”. We think that adds up to a great show. Franc Cinelli returns to get the night under way too with a short solo/acoustic set.

For Sunday afternoon we return to the “in the round” format, this time in the company of Fargo’s Jody Davies airing some solo material, Charlie Tophill strumming out cheerful pessimism on an acoustic guitar and a man who’s been playing WagonWheel shows almost as long as we’ve been doing them, John Batchelor.

Finally on Sunday night, Southern Tenant Folk Union return to Sheffield with their ‘work in progress’ tour, road testing songs from forthcoming new album Willie Rough. Southern Tenant Folk Union are the Edinburgh based six-piece string band that over a series of albums have produced a thought provoking and arresting take on roots & folk music. Support comes from Paul Handyside, the folk and roots singer songwriter who began his musical career with eighties indie darlings Hurrah!
