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?

but be under no illusion about how good the three bands were that joined us at Shakespeares last night. The first time in over 200 shows we’ve had an amp blow up on stage (i think?), and a first gig for KC Video who set the ball rolling for Chris Murphy & Boxer Genius and Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers. Big thanks to them and those few who came out to support quality live music.

The next WagonWheel Presents… show is on Saturday May 30th when we welcome back Roger Davies who headlined our very first night back in 2006. Joining him at Shakespeares will be Yellowcake and Mat Wale. A full preview for this show can be found here.

See you then maybe?

***ROGER DAVIES***

Roger Davies New

Roger Davies’ reputation has been growing rapidly over the past few years across his native Yorkshire. Progressing from songs about local characters and to Saturday nights out in local pubs to performances with Brighouse & Rastrick and Skelmanthorpe Brass Bands, his appeal has widened significantly.

Known as the Yorkshire Songwriter and Bard of Calderdale he is the music equivalent of Yorkshire poet Ian McMillan, with words that resonate Yorkshire but contain universal themes of home, love, art and everyday life.

Roger has performed at Beverley Folk Festival, Shrewbury Folk Festival and many others and makes frequent appearances on BBC Radio Leeds.

Beautiful songs. A bit like the Jimmy Webb of West Yorkshire” – Ian McMillan, BBC Radio 3

The best thing I’ve seen in 20 years. If I had a torch I’d throw it to him Harvey Andrews

When Roger walked on stage to a sold out Square Chapel in Halifax, it quickly became obvious why this self styled ‘Yorkshire Songwriter’ commands such a strong following. His songs are a reflection of the world around us. His lyrics can be funny, as in ‘The Beerbelly Blues’, thought provoking or, as in his tender ballad ‘Stephanie’, simply exquisite.” Halifax Courier

***ADAM MYERS***

Adam Myers

Adam Myers is a Singer Songwriter from the North of England. Adam has worked with numerous bands over the years and has built up quite a catalogue of songs. His most recent partnership with Rory Garforth (as Garforth & Myers) resulted in a beautifully crafted album with a sound reminiscent of 60’s psychedelic folk and carefully crafted multi part harmonies.

Acoustic music like this and of this standard will always straddle the border between folk, pop, jazz etc and may even be popped into a new category altogether, whether it likes it or not. Cross pollination is always good though, especially if it draws audiences in from several directions. These particular ears are keen to hear more.Northern Sky (on Garforth & Myers)

***ADRIAN BATES***

Adrian Bates

Singer/songwriter Adrian Bates hails from South Elmsall. Taking influence from the likes of Neil Young, Ryan Adams and Nick Drake, he’s been appearing regularly at venues across Yorkshire since embarking on a solo career.

***IAN BRAMALL/YELLOWCAKE***

Ian Bramall

Singer/songwriter Ian Bramall has been described as sounding somewhere between Richard Hawley and Mercury Rev, nineties indie with folk sensibilities. More recently he’s joined forces with Sarah Sharp in the duo Yellowcake. Half brooding folk, half silly pop, half bad maths, it is an ongoing experiment exploring the perimeters of audience heart strings and tear ducts. Yellowcake accepts no liability for any emotion either caused or not caused during audio contact. It does however accept compliments and sweeteners freely. And dispenses them too.

“His self-deprecating manner endearingly flowed through his music as he sang lyrics in a distinct Sheffield accent” Now Then Magazine

“Fabulous finger picking tunes with uplifting lyrics from an endearing performer” bbc.co.uk

***JOHN BATCHELOR***

John BatchelorA 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, but tonight he plays an increasingly rare solo set.
