another electric headline show from The Fargo Railroad Co., and they duly delivered last night. A fabulous first gig from The Swells and fine opening set from Benjamin William Pike added up to a great time all round. Big thanks to all of them, and everyone who came along (including Colin).

WagonWheel Presents… is back at The Greystones this coming Saturday September 1st when we’re joined by The BearCats, Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers and Ryan Farmer. We’re fully expecting more good times, advance tickets priced at just £5 are available here. You can read the full preview for the show here. Maybe we’ll see you then?

it proved to be only 60% of a weekender, but what we were left with was pretty special. Thanks to everybody that joined us on Friday and Saturday, not least Rod Picott, Boss Caine, M&J Blues, Andy P. Davison, Franc Cinelli, The Fargo Railroad Co. and The Lucky Strikes for the exceptional entertainment.

Sadly the weather put paid to Sunday’s two gigs at The Greystones, and left us hanging on 298 WagonWheel Presents… shows promoted. But we’ll be back for more very soon. Next will likely be Monday May 14th when we welcome Kirsty McGee & Quiet Loner. Keep an eye on the Gigs page for details of this and more new shows we’ll be adding over the next few weeks.

***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!

Doors for all evening shows open at 8pm and shows finish by 11pm.

Doors for afternoon shows open at 3pm and shows finish by 5.45pm.

Advance tickets prices are:

Friday night £10

On Thursday November 1st, WagonWheel Presents… returns to Hop Hideout for another special night. We’ll be getting up close and personal with Andy P. Davison (The Black Thunder Revue) and Jody Davies (The Fargo Railroad Co. / King Quentin / A Prayer Away) in the intimate surrounds of the Abbeydale Road beer shop & tasting room for an unplugged acoustic performance. Due to the cosy confines of this unique venue, tickets are strictly limited and advance booking is highly recommended. When places are gone, they’ll be gone. Priced at £8 they will be on sale from http://www.wegottickets.com/wagonwheelpresents at 9am on Monday September 3rd. Doors for the event will be 7.45pm.

 

***ANDY P. DAVISON***

When he’s not playing shows as part of The Black Thunder Revue, Andy flies solo with his trusty resonator guitar. The sound is rooted in Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll, but draws on many styles.

***JODY DAVIES***

If being in three bands wasn’t enough, Jody Davies airs a more stripped down set of songs in a rare performance of his solo material. Tonight with just his vintage Gibson J-45 (you may know her as Dolly), expect raw, heartfelt songs and to hear one or two of the stories behind them.

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.

WagonWheel Presents… is back in action on Wednesday September 27th when we return to the same venue for the Sheffield debut of Chris Pureka. Completing the line up for what promises to be another special night will be Stoney. Full details are here, hope you can join us then.
