***STONEY*** : 9.30pm Bard’s Bar

It’s astonishing to think that it’s been 12 years since Stoney’s much celebrated genre-defying debut “The Scene & The Unseen” was first released – it’s a testament to the timelessness of Mark Stoney’s unique songwriting & production talent that it still sounds fresh today. Stoney’s keen ear for classic melody combined with unique production and a sharp lyrical potency opened doors for the gifted indie juggernaut on both sides of the Atlantic. Now back in Sheffield working on new projects and new songs set to be released soon on Hudson Records.

***JOE SOLO*** 8.40pm Stable Yard

Joe Solo is an award-winning musician, writer, poet, activist, broadcaster and washing machine engineer from Scarborough. His musical odyssey began in 1987 fronting a bash-em-out band at school, and has seen him play seven countries either as lynchpin of pop-punk upstarts Lithium Joe or hammering out his unique brand of Folk, Punk and Blues in his own right.

***THE BARKER RANCH HIGHWAYMEN*** : 7.40pm Bard’s Bar

Featuring the combined talents of Ash Gray, Andy P. Davison and Jim Widdop, The Barker Ranch Highwaymen bring West Coast-esque harmonies via Austin TX, Chesterfield and Derby. Three great musicians make for one outstanding trio.

 

***MAT WALE*** 7pm Stable Yard

Mat Wale has been writing and recording since early 2004. Rising out of the tumultuous Chesterfield music scene of the mid 2000s that spawned ‘avanGaad’, ‘Vigilante Wing’ and ‘The Culture Thieves’ among others. With Alt. Country behemoths ‘The Rackets’ (2006-2013 on and off), Grunge/Electro/ Folk duo ‘Arrogant Whale’ (2006-2010), Country Rock outfit ‘Big Convoy’ (2011-Present) or performing solo, Mat has ordinarily been a fixture on the local live circuit until moving away last year, so this makes for a now rare Sheffield show.

***THE HOLDING HANDS*** : 6.20pm Bard’s Bar

The brand new band featuring the songs of Tom Baxendale and members of The Payroll Union among the line up.

 

***PAUL HANDYSIDE*** : 5.40pm Stable Yard

Paul Handyside is a folk and roots singer songwriter. He began his musical career with eighties indie darlings Hurrah! The jangle pop band had album releases on Kitchenware and Arista Records from 1982 to 1991 and toured extensively worldwide. During the nineties he toured and recorded with friend and Kitchenware labelmate Martin Stephenson. Handyside formed Bronze in 2001. Still embracing chiming, Rickenbacker driven pop, and increasingly alt country, they released two albums, The Statue in the Stone and A Common Prayer. His debut solo album Future’s Dream, a combination of pop, country and modern day hymns was released in 2007 to great reviews. Latest album Tide, Timber & Grain saw elements of traditional British folk and sixties protest songs emerging in Handyside’s now well established and diverse musical palette.

***THE SWELLS*** : 4.50pm Bard’s Bar

Tripped out guitar pop band The Swells are a North West based 5 piece featuring former Walton Hesse frontman Matt Grayson. Simplistic, Big Star-esque songwriting awash with the noise and ambience you’d find on a Sonic Youth or Spacemen 3 LP. Sentiment and melody meet space and noise.

***ANDY WHITEHOUSE*** : 4.20pm Stable Yard

Andy Whitehouse is recognised as a talented songwriter with a predilection for story and illuminating metaphor. He launched his first solo album, Almost Home in February 2017. This sits alongside two albums by the band he fronts, The Silver Darlings, on the Anklebreka Records label. He has performed across the UK supporting Martin Stephenson, Mick Thomas, Curtis Eller and has guested with Chris Wood. Likened to Nick Cave, Jacques Brel and Leonard Cohen, his songs are performed to a backdrop of “ethereal and atmospheric” guitar. While he continues to front The Silver Darlings he also travels solo, sharing stories of weary pilgrims, drunken sailors, and battered optimists stumbling through relationships with mysterious saints, magical changelings and jaded lovers. His songs are characteristically set in times and places of change and uncertainty – tidal, liminal, darkening and yet patterned with warmth and hope.

***THE DECEMBER FLOWERS*** 3.40pm Bard’s Bar

Gemma Gray plays Americana & folk tunes inspired by Stateside travels, recounting tales of love, dreams and all the things in between. Some of those songs formed the basis of debut solo EP My Joshua Tree that was released last year. 2019 brings a new full band sound with The December Flowers.

***GEORGINA GILMARTIN*** 3.10pm Stable Yard

Georgina Gilmartin is an alternative folk singer/songwriter, who since making her debut at an open mic in 2011 has become a stalwart of the Barnsley music scene. Observations on life, people, and other assorted objects, have produced several EPs worth a material.

***THE FAREWELL STATE*** : 2.30pm Bard’s Bar

Returning from a period of stasis with new members, new songs and a new album to be released before the year is out, The Farewell State are a ragged glory quartet with ear-worm melodies and emotional country-punk soul. It ain’t always pretty but it’s usually tuneful.

***BUFFALO GHOST*** : 2pm Stable Yard

Buffalo Ghost is a music collective created in 2017 to write and record music featuring collaborators and friends. Based around the songs of singer/songwriter Joe Armitage, 2018 saw several band performances of alternative orchestral folk, while currently Joe is playing a handful of solo dates around the release of a more stripped back acoustic album.

referred to “a colossal triple bill”, and i think last night went some way to proving that right. Massive thanks to The Fargo Railroad Co., The Sea Whores, MG Boulter and everybody who helped fill The Greystones. A great night i hope you’d agree.
