WagonWheel Presents… heads back to Shakespeares on Friday April 27th with another great triple bill. We’re joined by Socrates Johnson, Garforth & Myers plus The Fontana Instincts. Advance tickets priced at £3 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/158415 or entry on the night will be £4. Doors open 7.45pm.


***SOCRATES JOHNSON***

Socrates Johnson are a four piece bluesy rock n’ roll band, whose male/female fronted retro sound is full of passion and melody. Originally formed in 2007, they’ve gone through some line up changes, but continue to build their reputation as a quality live act. Described as sounding like a cross between Tom Petty and Neil Young, they offer something a little different on the current underground scene. One early review commented how they “strummed and harmonised like West Coast veterans”. We can only agree when they also summed up with “well worth a look”.

Socrates Johnson stepped up and filled the place with an energy and talent that is uncommon for a gig that only cost three quid. Each track was well constructed, masterfully performed and an absolute pleasure to hear.” Toast Magazine

***GARFORTH & MYERS***

Image

Garforth & Myers play unique and dark contemporary folk music. After initially meeting whilst involved separate musical projects Rory Garforth & Adam Myers started working on material together, this would form the basis of a selection of demos which attracted the attention of producers Keith Angel and Andy Seward; perhaps best known for their work with such folk/roots luminaries as Jon Boden, Kate Rusby, Martin Simpson, John Tams, Chris Drever et al. Their initial release, the four track EP ‘Bonfires’ will be followed by their full debut album of the same name this year.

Acoustic music like this and of this standard will always straddle the border between folk, pop, jazz etc and may even be popped into a new category altogether, whether it likes it or not. Cross pollination is always good though, especially if it draws audiences in from several directions. These particular ears are keen to hear more.” Northern Sky

***THE FONTANA INSTINCTS***

Image

The Fontana Instincts evolved around Derby singer/songwriter Tom Campbell, becoming a full band that blends alternative, americana, indie, rock, psychedelic, folk, blues and country influences. Their unique and varied style has been winning them many fans.

They’ve spent most of last year working hard on recording their debut album, which they expect to release soon.
