a bad way to spend a Sunday, was it? Thanks to everybody that came out to our Tramlines show at Shakespeares yesterday. Was nice to see lots of faces around for most (and some for all) of the day. We’re pretty sure you all enjoyed it as much as we did. Big thanks of course as well to The Fargo Railroad Co., Stoney, The Payroll Union, Paul McClure, Walton Hesse, Tom Baxendale, Coma Girls, Boss Caine, The Ragged Edge, David Venn, The Clench, Bob Collum, The Sea Whores and Roaming Son for the fine entertainment. 2017 would have a lot to follow…

WagonWheel Presents… regular shows are here all year round though and we return to The Greystones on Wednesday August 3rd in the company of Curtis Eller’s American Circus. Those lovely Silver Darlings will be along to open the show too. You can find full details here. Maybe we’ll see you then too?

lots of thanks to The Payroll Union, The Fargo Railroad Co., The Sopranistas, Neil McSweeney, Ash Gray, Roaming Son, William Barstow, Richard Kitson, Quiet Loner, E.R. Thorpe, Steve Roberts, Rod Picott and Mat Wale & Friends for a whole weekend of great music at The Greystones. Plus of course to those of you came along, many for more than one gig too (i think the record was three?). It was really rather good, even if i say so myself.

So that’s our 2016 for WagonWheel Presents… well and truly kicked off. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve heard this weekend, take a look at our listings for the months ahead here. Next up we’ve got Austin Lucas and Adam Faucett at Shakespeares on Tuesday March 1st. We’ll be back at The Greystones on Tuesday March 15th with Rachel Ries plus support from Tom Baxendale and Yellowcake.

See you then?

***THE PAYROLL UNION***

The Payroll Union

The Payroll Union are a Sheffield based Americana band with an obsession for American history. Inspired by country, rock ‘n’ roll and southern gothic, they formed in 2009 and have shared stages with artists such as Bellowhead and Johnny Dowd. After bringing out two EPs, they released their debut album, The Mule & The Elephant, in February 2013. With songs about conspiratorial Masons, persecuted Mormons and dueling politicians, the album’s narrative charts the rise of American democracy in the early 19th century. After working with the history department at the University of Sheffield on a collaborative music and history project (Faith & Fear In Philadelphia), the band released their follow up Paris Of America in 2015.

“A noirish nightmare of anti-folk meets post-rock” Americana UK

“Thank goodness for literate, thinking songwriters, and thank goodness for The Payroll Union.” R2 Magazine

“For the uninitiated, The Payroll Union are hands-down one of the most exciting bands we’ve seen in ages” Toast Magazine

***THE FARGO RAILROAD CO.***

The Fargo Railroad Co.

The Fargo Railroad Co. have gone from strength to strength since forming in 2013 and have steadily built a reputation as one of Sheffield’s hottest live acts. Drawing on a vast range of musical influences, from old school thrash metal to easy listening, jazz to blues, rock & funk to folk, country and bluegrass, they found common ground in the broad and deep ocean of Southern Rock. They released their debut album, live recording Sharing The Load, in early 2015 and had a busy summer of festival appearances. They rounded off 2015 with a sold out second birthday show and a new live acoustic EP. All aboard for a journey into the sound of a Texas dive bar.
