Steeleye Span and Pentangle's Jacqui McShee
📅 Wednesday 17 October 2018 Royal Philharmonic Hall, Hope St. Liverpool L1 9BP
Steeleye Span are fast approaching their 50th anniversary 2019, with a work rate to put many younger artists to shame. The bands’ eighth album in twelve years - 2016's Dodgy Bastards - saw them return to the folk tales and characters that have always been at the heart of the Steeleye sound. Dodgy Bastards saw the folk-rock pioneers continue drawing stories of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings and tormented spirit. They once more create an inspired and dark take on the music of the British Isles.
Steeleye Span are an English Folk Rock band formed in 1969. Still active today, along with Fairport Convention they are amongst the best known acts of the British Folk Revival and were among the most commercially successful, thanks to their hit singles Gaudette" and "All Around My Hat". They had four Top 40 albums and achieved a certified gold record with sales of "All Around My Hat".
The present Steeleye line-up is: The Legendary Maddy Prior (vocals), with long term member Liam Genockey (drums), Julian Littman,(guitar/keyboards and vocals) Andrew Sinclair (guitar), Jesse Mae Smart (violin anc backing vocals), Benji Kirkpatrick (guitar and backing vocals),(whose father John Kirkpatrick played with the band in 1977-1978) and Roger Carey (bass).
Sheelanagig - Foot Stomping Folk
📅 Friday 9 November 2018 The Music Room - Liverpool Philharmonic ‘High octane stuff…Would liven any party and keep the floor full’ – fRoots
Sheelanagig for over a decade have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass - added with the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic which is inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their interestingly arranged original pieces.
Putting the groove into a selection of traditional and original European Folk music dating from the medieval times to present day, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you’re within earshot of them in full flight. The fact that they often play with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, and outstanding musicianship that raises the roof in every place they play.
From The Jam - All Mod Cons 40th Anniversary
📅 Wednesday 5 - Thursday 6 December 2018 The Cavern Club, Liverpool “Blown away by this band- you must see them if you can!” - Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2
From the Jam is comprised of legendary former ‘The Jam’ bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano. This Autumn the band will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Jam’s 3rd studio album, All Mod Cons, playing it in its entirety. As well as classics such as ‘Down in The Tube Station at Midnight’ and ‘A Bomb in Wardour Street’ the band are also excited about playing ‘Billy Hunt’, ‘Mr Clean’ and the ‘The Butterfly Collector’, which only featured on the US release of All Mod Cons originally.
Over the past 11 years From the Jam have toured relentlessly, having played almost 1000 headline shows in the UK since their inception in 2007. Throughout this time, they’ve gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago, being described as “incredibly exciting” by the Daily Mirror and “sounding dynamic as ever” by the Daily Record.
“The energy in rehearsals is great and we’re really looking forward to getting back on the road!” says Foxton.
“A sincere touch and lashings of fiery rock’n’roll”- Guitar and Bass
In 2007 Russell Hastings was fronting ‘The Gift’ (which featured Rick Buckler) when he was joined on stage by Bruce Foxton (who was touring with Casbah Club) for a ‘one off’ performance. This performance sparked the genesis of From The Jam, and an enduring partnership between Foxton & Hastings.
Off-stage Foxton and Hastings wrote the album, ‘Back In The Room’ released in 2012, which received critical acclaim and solidified Foxton & Hastings as an excellent and contemporary song writing duo. They then returned to the studio in 2016 to record and release ‘Smash The Clock’, which reached number 31 in the UK charts. The album also entered the independent album chart at number 4, whilst the vinyl edition entered the vinyl chart at number 7.
“From The Jam, best night out I have had in years all The Jam hits and more done to perfection what's not to love!?” - Alan McGee, Creation Management
On December 1st 2017, to celebrate 10 years since From The Jam formed , Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings released From ‘The Jam Live!’, featuring songs performed at various venues across the UK. Tickets
