made the night drive down to Shakespeares yesterday was certainly more than suitably rewarded. A wonderful evening with fine performances from M.G. Boulter and Banjo Jen was a perfect antidote to two months without a WagonWheel show. Big thanks to both acts and everybody that joined us.

We don’t have to wait quite so long until the next one, WagonWheel Presents… returns to The Greystones this Monday night September 23rd when John Statz brings his latest UK tour to Sheffield. Opening the show will be Andy P. Davison & The Soul Preachin’ Co. Full details for this one can be found here, we hope you can find your along too.

***FRANC CINELLI****

Following on from the acclaimed The Marvel Age, Franc Cinelli returns with a long-awaited new album in September. Night Songs was written throughout the last year and recorded once again in his SongCircle Studio in West London and is probably his most soulful collection of material yet.

Having begun 2018 in New York City, creating a series of straight-to-vinyl 7” singles through Leesta Vall Recordings in Brooklyn, Cinelli returned to London to commence work on a new set of songs, some of which would eventually fall together in the completion of Night Songs. This new collection joins together a healthy dose of spiritual cleansing and demon conquering with the help of varied influences crossing both Eastern and Western folk music, from Blaze Foley and John Martyn to N. Ravikiran and Ravi Shankar.

“I suppose they’ve all come from a place of introspection,” he considers. “They were songs I needed to write, plain and simple. But the songs on the record definitely feel to me like they belong together and the title Night Songs helps me understand them better. There’s a special beauty found only in the stillness of night, in the silent lonely darkness dreams are born and reflections make way for answers. Night time isn’t the end of anything; it’s the beginning, it’s the seed of a brand new start.”

Playing guitar, keyboards and percussion, Cinelli is joined on Night Songs by his regular bandmates, Drew Manley on drums and Laurence Saywood on bass, alongside guest vocalist Chantal Brown from the band Vodun.

Born in Rome, Franc moved to London at a young age, learning to play violin and guitar while surrounded by a wide range of musical influences from Muddy Waters to Lucio Dalla. Like all good troubadours, he spent a lot of time touring before making his first records. His previous album The Marvel Age received effusive coverage from the likes of RNR, Classic Rock and Acoustic magazines, as well as Folk Radio UK who rated it Album of the Month, while his songs have been played on BBC national and regional shows, including Dermot O’Leary, Janice Long and Roddy Hart.

***M&J BLUES***

M&J Blues are father and son Mark & Jeff Lyall. They’re regular performers at many Sheffield venues doing their bluesy country rock ‘n’ roll thing. They recorded and released live album In The Presence Of Friends in 2016 and continue to delight their ever growing army of fans.

***BOSS CAINE***

Boss Caine is the main musical vehicle of hard living, permanently gigging, story telling, troubadouring, award winning, UK singer songwriter, Daniel Lucas. He is often joined by any number of incredibly talented guest musicians.

Boss Caine released their debut album: ‘The Ship That Sailed’, on independent label Little Num Num Music, in 2010. The record contains a selection of tunes written by Lucas over the last few years; a time that saw him leave his home town for London, before returning to York and putting together the line-up of local musicians that would become Boss Caine. Years of hard living, hard drinking and love turned sour inform an album that at times visits some quite dark places, but is ultimately carried along by a healthy dose of Northern positivity and stoicism.

Follow up The Rhythm And The Rhyme brought further acclaim in 2012, and latest record Loved By Trouble, Troubled By Love was released in 2018.
