156 - Andy Twyman

Andy Twyman Promo Image 3.jpg

If the winter blues has set we open 2019 with a gig that should bring up a bit of winter cheer. When Andy released the first ever naked Christmas music video it hit the national headlines, leading The Mirror newspaper to ask “Is this the best Christmas music video ever?” With the topics of his songs ranging from pandas to Luxembourg via Pot Noodle, Andy Twyman blends blues with humour and rock and roll to titillate your ears, mind and toes. Having already performed at Glastonbury Festival, on BBC Radio, and on Channel 4, Andy’s reputation is growing as a highly original emerging artist.

Andy first took to the stage aged 12 in pubs and clubs, with his guitar, voice and harmonica, often jamming with local musicians including Rory Graham (aka Rag and Bone Man). Before hitting 18, he had gigged as a solo act in top London venues including The Jazz Café and 100 Club. Driven to create a distinctive and exciting act, Andy learnt to play foot operated drums, giving his songs a beat to get people on their feet. Drawing on influences as diverse as Muddy Waters, Monty Python, the White Stripes and Noel Fielding he developed a one man band show. In recent years Andy has brought this show to Spain, the Netherlands and France, has performed twice on BBC Radio and on London’s Resonance 104.4FM, and has had articles written about his music in The Sun, the Mirror, and The Daily Mail newspapers. On Christmas Eve 2015, Andy's Christmas music video, 'A Naked Noël', was broadcast on Channel 4, and in 2017 Andy was interviewed on the London Live TV station to discuss his festival appearances and new live album release. When the summer arrives, Andy performs at festivals all over the country inducing laughter and dancing amongst the drunk and disorderly. Andy has performed at many of the biggest and best UK music festivals including Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Standon Calling, and Green Gathering. Allow Andy to tickle your funny follicles with lyrics absurd and profound, and dazzle your ear drums with music and sound.

"The master of the one man band...a first class musician and songwriter”

Blues in Britain Magazine

"The audience realised that they were in the presence of a real entertainer, a provider of a refreshing blast of new Blues"

Blues Matters Magazine

"Andy Twyman is a one man 100% genuine blues boogie machine...like John Lee Hooker on acid with a touch of the clash thrown in"

158 - MARCUS MALONE and INNES SIBUN - Acoustic duo set

Mrs Yarringtons are pleased to welcome the UK based, Detroit soulful blues-rock star Marcus Malone teamed up with explosive British blues rock guitarist Innes Sibun for a rare acoustic duo set.

malonesibunbluefireback.jpg

The new duo came about with a chance meeting at a show which uncovered a surprising amount of musical common ground.

As Innes Sibun explains: "When the chance comes along to play with a great musician who is travelling down the same musical road as you, then you jump at it. Listening to Marcus Malone I hear echo's of two of my favourite singers, Paul Rodgers, Otis Redding and early David Coverdale, but above all it's Marcus's own unmistakable style & delivery."

Marcus further adds:

"To say we are moving in the same direction musically is an understatement. Not only does Innes have shades of my favourite guitar players - Jimmy Page, Hendrix and Paul Kossoff - but he also has the soulful approach and the dynamics of BB and Albert King. Put all those influences together and you get the unique style of Innes Sibun."

Marcus Malone has just enjoyed the most successful year of his career. His critically acclaimed album 'A Better Man' on Redline records has topped several 'best of the year' polls and he was also nominated as a finalist in the European Blues Awards.

The former UA and Motown, Motorcity artist had a diverse hard rock and soul background, before he settled in a blues/rock and direction and relocated to the UK.

He played the Albert Hall with BB King and quickly established himself as a top flight blues rocker with a handful of excellent albums , of which his current release is easily his best: "'A Better Man' lives up to its conceptual title as a celebration of everything that makes Marcus one of the most exciting rock/blues bands in Europe."

Innes Sibun was barely in his 20's when he was produced by the legendary Mike Vernon, before joining Robert Plant's 'Fate of Nations' world tour.

He has subsequently built an international reputation by signing with the American label Viceroy, and then Provogue and Blues Boulevard in Europe.

Next he became a pivotal member of Sari Schorr & The Engine Room, with whom he cut the acclaimed 'A Force of Nature' album.

"Innes Sibun draws on deep wellspring of feeling that's undeniable and immediately infectious" Classic Rock

Marcus has been nominated by the UK Blues Awards 2018 for Best Male Vocalist and by EU Blues awards for Best Vocalist and Best Album ‘A Better Man’ 2017. Marcus was no 5 most played artist 2017 UK IBBA charts.

Together the two stellar musicians promise a powerful mix of rock, blues, soul and funk, all underpinned by Malone's soulful song driven quality and triggered by Sibun's high levels of intensity and his inherent melodic feel.

Innes concludes: "I'm influenced by a melting pot of blues, rock and soul. And Marcus's songs have that sweet blend of all three of those styles, which at times reminding me of Free, Thin Lizzy and lots of Stax influences."

Marcus agrees: "My writing draws on classic rock to blues rock - and even a bit of 60’s West Coast - so Innes 'suits me to a T', as we say in Detroit. Whatever I throw his way I'm sure he will compliment with his guitar style and vice versa."

This will be a rare acoustic duo gig by two quality musicians who normally make a lot of noise in an intimate venue, which will be very interesting to see where it goes.

160 - Reg Meuross

“brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience,” Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2 Folk Show

Reg-Meuross-BW-at-Roots-Doncaster-12-Dec-2014.jpg

Somerset based Reg Meuross accompanies himself masterfully on guitar, captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice. Reg’s catalogue includes story songs which bring characters from history to life, songs of protest as well as some of the most heart aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. “There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” said Townes Van Zandt.

Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, on a really human level, his words and music painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung. He is currently touring with three new albums and a powerful song cycle.

“Powerful and moving songwriting” The Telegraph

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy

“…echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian

Pete Townshend has chosen Reg to write and record songs for an important new project, inspired by the life and songs of Woody Guthrie, explaining: “What Reg does is so pure, so honest, so strong and moral. He is a musician of conscience, and so his music has an additional component in it – journalistic emphasis and factual strength.” But listen to Reg Meuross and you will soon realise it’s not all protest, he has also penned some of the most beautifully disarming love songs and lyrics ever written.

Reg Meuross tours the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales as well as delighting audiences in South Africa, Spain and Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and the US. In 2017 Reg was invited to take part in a very special event at the Holocaust Centre in Cape Town, where he showcased his song from Faraway People about Sophie Scholl who was a brave young anti-Nazi activist caught and guillotined aged 21. For Sophie (This Beautiful Day) was described by Mike Harding as “one of the most important songs to be written in the last 30 years.”

High praise indeed

162 - Red Dirt Skinners

They have left the country but returning to pretty much home turf as part of their UK tour Mrs Y’s welcomes old friends the Red Dirt Skinners.

RED_DIRT_SKINNERS_PHOTOGRAPHED_BY_SEAN_SCALLY_4.jpg

Described by Roots Music Canada as “The Pink Floyd of Folk Music” the Red Dirt Skinners are the multi-award winning, multi-instrumentalist husband and wife team of Rob and Sarah Skinner. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative acts to come out of the UK in recent years.

The first act in history to achieve accolades at both the British Blues and British Country Awards, the duo’s unique sound also won them folk/roots album of the year in several polls across the UK and North America and saw them nominated duo of the year at the International Acoustic Music Awards.

With male and female harmonies blending together as one voice and Sarah’s trademark soprano saxophone solos, you will be swept along by the refreshingly different sound of the Red Dirt Skinners.

If you like songs influenced by Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel, Supertramp, Crosby Stills and Nash, David Bowie coupled with some epic storytelling, humour and heartfelt emotions, you'll love a Red Dirt Skinners concert.

"Musically set apart from the mass of bands who are just copying what has gone before” Music News

After winning Instrumentalist of the Year at the British Blues Awards in 2014, Sarah became the first female artist to be endorsed by Trevor James Saxophones, UK.

"The space where the vocals of Sarah and Rob Skinner meet features two tones existing as a single note". The Alternate Root Magazine

In July 2017 it was deemed by Canadian Immigration that the Red Dirt Skinners were "performers of a world class level" and they were invited to become Canadian residents. Having already completed several successful Canadian tours, the Skinners were thrilled and honoured at the invitation and took up residency almost immediately. The duo’s latest album, Under Utopian Skies, is a testament to their love of Canada and is described by Trevor Oxborrow of Folk At Five as “A masterpiece of audio bliss”.

Advocates for finding the positives in every situation, Rob and Sarah spend much of their off-tour time encouraging new artists into the music scene and finding them performance opportunities.

A Red Dirt Skinners concert combines captivating storytelling with knowing lyricism and outstanding musicianship. The Skinners have a natural rapport with their audiences and their live shows are a wonderful experience; a musical journey to remember. Be prepared for laugh out loud lyrics, followed by songs sure to pull at your heartstrings. Rob and Sarah Skinner will steal your hearts. Don’t miss their show!

unnamed.jpg

Charlie enjoys a multi-faceted career that includes acting, comedy-improvisation, writing for radio and composition for film and TV as well as performing live with her band.

She made her first album in Nashville and London and released a single, Pilot of the Airwaves, which became a hit in the US.

Five of Charlie's albums have been released since 2005 on her own label Black Ink, which have seen her rediscover her own voice and return to her earlier folk-roots influences.

167 - Vera van Heeringen trio

It’s unusual to find someone who’s as good a songwriter as an instrumentalist. Vera van Heeringen is that person. A consummate guitarist, highly acclaimed by her contemporaries, she brings the instrument to life in way that is entirely her own. Vera also writes tunes and songs which deliver straight to - and from - the heart. Firmly rooted in Transatlantic traditions, her original contemporary Americana showcases both these skills: firebrand instrumental virtuosity and poignant, emotionally astute songwriting.

b_W1sicmVzaXplIiwxMDAwXSxbIm1heCJdLFsid2UiXV0=.jpg

An early starter, raised in the bluegrass scene in her native Holland, Vera has long been recognised for her elegant yet gutsy guitar style – a skill which transposes to pretty much anything with strings! A musician with integrity and style in equal measure. In 2015, Vera released her second album, Proper Brew, which features a roll call of top-drawer musicians who share her musical aesthetic, and hold her in high esteem – amongst them Tim O’Brien, Dirk Powell, Rayna Gellert and Kris Drever. Vera’s now working on her third album.

Her live performances are intimate, understated affairs, allowing the music to speak for itself. Stripped back, potent, and full of groove. Outstanding flatpicking, fulsome fiddle playing, heartbreaking lyrics, and assured natural vocal tone and driving tunes are all integral to the show.

Currently Vera tours with a watertight acoustic trio featuring harmony king Dave Luke on guitar, vocals and mandolin, and double-bass stalwart Andy Seward. Dave has been the backbone of many hard-working country bands and toured extensively with Nashville singer songwriter Gail Davies, playing venues like the Grand Ole Opry. Musician and record producer extraordinaire Andy Seward was part of folk daling Kate Rusby’s band as well as working with Eddi Reader, Richard Thompson, Andy Cutting, Martin Simpson and Brooks Williams.

“This lady oozes class” John Atkins, fRoots

“She can play the acoustic guitar better than most” Alan Harrison, NoDepression

"Acoustic music wrapped in gentle wistful melodies that aim for and hit the heart..."

Maurice Hope, Flying Shoes blog

"She can play anything with strings, write fine songs and sing them too. Go see her play live..."

Zen Bicycle Band v Terry Riley's "In C"

ZBB - BF2018_preview.jpeg

 St Mary's Church, Upper Lake, Battle

A Mrs Y's  special on-off event as  part of Battle Festival and again we visit St Mary's Church, Upper Lake, Battle as one of Mrs Y's favorites take on this iconic piece.   

Mrs  Yarringtons  Music  Club  presents THE  ZEN  BICYCLE  BAND  versus  Terry  Riley’s "IN C" .I  can’t  really  tell  you  what  is  going  to  happen  as no-one  knows!  Terry  Riley's  minimalist  classic  ͞"In  C͟" is  instantly  recognizable,  despite  the  fact  that  no  two  performances  of it  can  ever  be  the  same. "In  C"  score  is  made  from  53  musical  modules,  fragments  of musical  material  and  melodies.  The  players  move  steadily  through  the  fragments,  although  they  can  omit  them  as  well,  and  the  modules  can  be  played  faster  or  slower  than  written.  How  many  times  each  is  repeated,  and  how  long  a  performance  lasts,  will  vary  each  time  the  piece  is  played.  

The  Zen  Bicycle  Band  music  is  a  freeform  flowing  stream  of  connectivity  between  three  individual  players  created  entirely  spontaneous.  They  connect  with  the  audience,  in  harmony  and  also  directly  to  the  source  of  imagination  and  inspiration.  Every  performance  is  unique  to  that  moment  of  creation.  The  music  that  flows  from  the  ZBB  is  surprisingly  organised  and  profound.  Itis  not  mindless  unstructured  noodling.  Itis  effortless  music  without  the  mind  interfering.  They  would  not  normally  follow  any  kind  of  score  or  set  pattern  but  with  their  intuitive  music  and  Terry  Riley’s  free-flowing  score  this  will  be  a  one  moment  in  time  musical  event.
