Tel: 0116 251 0080

Tuesday 19th June
Hillfolk Noir
plus The Outwoods County Riders

Fronted by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Travis Ward, Hillfolk Noir’s peculiar take on traditional acoustic mountain music is filtered through a half-century of folk, country and rock ‘n’ roll and fed by an affinity for medicine show culture and Depression-era string-band blues. The band calls it Junkerdash, which has multiple definitions up to and including “psychedelic swamp-shack rags.” However, if you’re looking for something neat and tidy to place in print or casual conversation, feel free to use current music-journalism parlance and call it “indie folk.”

Wednesday 20th June

Thursday 21st June
Dick Gaughan
plus support

There are no half measures with Dick Gaughan. What you see is what you get and what you get is one of the cornerstones of modern traditional music. Dick Gaughan has never been easy. The songs he delivers ask questions that some listeners may have thought never existed - so they may not know the answers. When the answers duly come, delivered in a voice that throbs with a unique kind of controlled, vibrating passion, he can shake the most complacent mindset out of its skull.

Friday 22nd June
John Butler (Diesel Park West)
Tonight's show features a solo performance from the lead singer and lyricist of Diesel Park West. Expect many highlights from the back catalogue of this increasingly well regarded singer and songwriter, along with spiritual wit, dark humour and tales of the real music business.

“Butlers songs have the unmistakeable sound of greatness about them.” - Q

7Storeysoul are one of the Midlands’ most innovative funk and soul bands.

The band were founded in 2005 by prolific songwriter and 70s soul fanatic Mark Poole. Featuring Mark’s funky rhythm guitar and the uniquely sweet and soulful voice of Laura Hughes, their sound is underpinned by an ultra-tight rhythm section.

In addition to Mark’s original material, expect to hear classics from such greats as Stevie Wonder, the Crusaders, AWB, Quincy Jones, Bill Withers and the Staples Singers along with more contemporary material by artists including rhe Brand New Heavies, Amy Winehouse and Beverley Knight. 7Storeysoul are a must see for anyone with a passion for classic funk and soul and an appreciation of a great tune!
