This weekend at The Musician, Leicester: Dawson Smith & The Dissenters (Sat.) / Wreckless Eric (Sun.)

Saturday 14th December

Dawson Smith & The Dissenters
plus special guests The Flying Buttress
The Flying Buttress is a solo album project by Dissenters guitarist Martin Burch.

The album 'Release' is a set of new songs written by Martin and features many well know Leicester musicians and singers.

Some of the songs from the album will be performed for the first time tonight with guest singers including Vikki Clayton, Tonia Tempest and Dawson Smith backed by an all star band featuring Neil Segrott, Greg Tempest and on lead guitar Martin Burch (also celebrating his 50th birthday).

Dawson & The Dissenters will be headlining with their brand of swampy blues and Americana that always rocks the house (and it's also Dawson's birthday!).

Sunday 15th December

Wreckless Eric
£9adv £10door
To celebrate the Fire Records reissue of the two albums he made in the eighties with The Len Bright Combo, Wreckless Eric will be performing selected solo shows. A songwriting and recording legend since the seventies, Eric has rarely performed solo in recent years. For the past six years and three albums he has worked in partnership with his wife, Amy Rigby.

Now you can see him as you may never have seen him before, tight, loose and rocking on acoustic guitar, electric six string and gummed-up harmonica, performing songs from all phases of his long career with an emphasis on the songs he wrote for The Len Bright Combo.

Remember; always check with the venue before travelling, or grab a ticket direct from the site:
