As much as we would like these guys to play, we couldn’t get ’em.
These fine chaps are the Blue Water Ramblers by the way. They’re from America and I have NO idea what they sound like. I just like their hats.
So here’s what’s lined up instead…
Johnny 3 Cards
Something nice and relaxed for the afternoon… one man and his guitar, our very own Piers Pennell aka Johnny 3 Cards. If you like 1920s Blues, this is your lucky day. If you don’t like 1920s Blues, this is still your lucky day. Johnny 3 Cards on Facebook
In his own words,
Johnny 3 Cards, the bastard offspring of Papa 3 Cards and the VooDoo Queen Marie Laveau, wandering the Mersey Delta picking up lost souls and sad, sad songs.
“You may not like the Blues, but if yo’ hungry an yo’ got no money to pay the rent – then yo’all GOT the Blues!”
The Bucket Band – late afternoon-ish
From Blues then to fast-fiddle Hungarian Folk… The Bucket Band are a most excellent instrumental folk band, hailing from Cardiff. Despite currently being a bass player down, they still make plenty of sound with one-man-band Karl on drums, guitar and harmonica and the astoundingly brilliant Emily on fiddle and percussion. A mixture of UK, Irish and Eastern European folk – both traditional and their own original pieces. What’s not to like?! www.thebucketband.com
Here’s something to listen to – don’t be fooled by the slow bits…. they are a FAST fiddle band!
King Mantis – 8pm-ish
Herefordshire’s finest up and coming alternative rock/ska/punk band, King Mantis come as a three piece suite, playing a mixture of rock covers (King Mantis style) plus their own material. They do support Hereford United FC, but apart from that, they are fine upstanding rock gentlemen. King Mantis on Facebook
Here’s one of their own tunes….
And here’s their cover version of Hotel California ….
