My last gig in 2018 was Paul McClure and the Goat Roper Rodeo Band, The former is known as the Rutland troubadour, the latter group live together in a static caravan in Rhyl! A very pleasant evening to round off the Autumn/Winter season at Biddulph Up In Arms.
Here's the Goat Ropers -

Next gig (unless something comes up between Christmas and New Year) is Emily Barker in Biddulph on January 4th, Last saw her in a health food supermarket in East Nashville in September...

Weather and sobriety and tickets permitting - hope to get over for Emily - last seen a few years back as a surprise addition to the bill for a Christian Kjellvander / Lonesome Penniless Cowboys hoedown @ The Klondyke Levenshulme.

First gig of 2019 - Emily Barker, supported by local Biddulph lass Emily Lockett. A good turn out for the post Christmas first Friday of the New Year. Emily L is a very competent finger picker influenced by Taylor Swift and as such has an ear for a tune. Not bad for a 17 year old who will develop her own style more and nights like this in front of a decent crowd will do her no end of good. Emily B, accompanied by her partner Lukas Drinkwater is a great professional and probably the nicest person in roots music. Style-wise she veers across folk, blues, gospel and country. A good start to the year. Next up is Hilary Klug at the Green Note in London followed by the UK Americana Festival on the next couple of nights, both at the end of January.

Went to see UK Subs at Redrum in Stafford. Not particularly impressed, but kudos to Charlie Harper for keeping at it , at the age of 75.

Trip to London - first it was Youtube Nashville fiddle and dance sensation Hillary Klug. She had technical problems with her sound set up but battled through to put on an entertaining - if somewhat novelty - show.

Then, on the following nights it was UK Americana Fest in Hackney - two nights of showcase gigs and conference discussion. I didn't do any discussion, I just did the music. Highlights for me were Carson McHone - Austin honky-tonk singer (and a real smart cookie), Bennett Wilson Poole (who've been great for the last twelve months with their jangly CSNY-Byrdsian pop) and Austin Lucas.

RH at Bury 2nd February - Martin Simpson! When a new person is brought into a band dynamic in my playing experience, it can go one of two ways - it can either hold everyone back as they're listening hard to compensate and adjust in their playing, or the newbie is sensitive to the songs and adds something new and different. It was Martin Simpson so there are no prizes for guessing that he fell into the latter category - even with a banjo! A great gig - the audience were lively and totally up for it which lifted the atmosphere in the hall. A special well done to Liam Frost too, not only for an excellent support, but also for his prompt response in stopping his set to get help to the guy stood next but one to me who fainted. He seemed to recover quickly thankfully.

Couple of gigs this week - first it was bluesy guitar-slinger Sean Taylor - really nice bloke - who was playing at Biddulph Up In Arms. Seen him a couple of times now and he's one of those who works brilliantly in a live setting.

Friday I endured the train (and unexpected) bus journey from hell to get up to Glasgow to see Austin country singer Carson McHone at the Hug and Pint, a veggie restaurant with a dark but inviting downstairs venue. Ms McHone is rapidly becoming a favourite - witty, literate and humorous in her writing and stage presence. She's back in May with her full band. One not to miss.
