A diverse and impressive series of Live@Eastwell gigs are taking place at Eastwell Village Hall over the autumn.
Here’s what there is to look forward to.
Kicking off the new season on Saturday, September 22, will be Wild Willy Barrett’s Roaring Touring. Having played the first ever Eastwell gig in May 2016 Wild Willy returns with a new name and a new line-up. Jane (Ejay) Williams has joined the band, having just finished recording on Van Morrison’s latest album. Her beautiful vocals are add a new dimension to the ever-popular foursome.
Performing on Saturday, October 6, will be Martin Simpson, one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players and excellent banjo-picker. Martin is a virtuoso player who conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty (nearly sold out).
Sam Green and the Midnight Heist, appearing on Saturday, November 3, are a high energy four-piece band who whip up a storm with stompin’ beats, dog house bass and growlin’ slide guitars. Throw in wailin’ harmonicas and four howlin’ voices and you have yourself a modern day juke joint sound guaranteed to bring any old house down.
The Chris King Robinson Band headlines on Saturday, December 1. Chris’s fresh, modern take on the Blues in 2016 led to him playing the highly exclusive Lead Belly Festival, held at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall in New York City. Chris played a scorching psychedelic jam to the sold out crowd. At the age of just 21, this is only the beginning for a guitarist who many think will become the standard bearer for ‘The Blues’ for years to come.
