Steve Harley Acoustic Trio
Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, plays an intimate, unique and atmospheric show; subtle lyricism, mingled with great improvisation and rocky rhythms. Steve will be accompanied by his Cockney Rebel band-mates of long-standing - Barry Wickens [violin & guitar] and James Lascelles [piano and percussion].
Expect all-time favourites like Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Sebastian, and of course the world-wide classic hit, Make Me
Smile (Come Up And See Me), blending in with more recent tracks from Steve's critically-acclaimed albums.
A consummate performer at the top of his game
Ed Goodale Band
Ed & Ollie Goodale have gathered a strong following touring the UK and Europe over the last few years; Ed’s absorbing lyrics and inspirational songwriting accompanied by Ollie’s energetic percussion has seen them storm stages at Henley, Glastonbury, Wickham and many other festivals.. as well as capturing audiences in more intimate venues such as The Green Note and Koko in Camden. 2017 peaked with the critically acclaimed release of ‘The Gift’ – Live in Holland and for 2018 Ed & Ollie have been joined by guitar virtuoso Steve Ball and the driving bass of Steve Burrell, to build the energy and sound even further.
Sunday 23rd September
All the elements are drawn together by Cathy Jordan's masterful stage-presence.
Arguably the best Irish album ever
Gerry Colvin Band
performance combines Frank Sinatra, Lee Evans, and the afore-mentioned Man in Black.
Genius? Madcap? Maverick? Yes, all of these things... and a lot, lot more.
This man is unique and unforgettable. The songs are brilliant. He should be a household name. Go see him.”
