Strawbs (Full Electric Show) (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 25 March 2017
| 7:30pm

The Strawbs are often mentioned in the same breath as progressive rock bands like Yes, King Crimson, & The Moody Blues.
The band emerged out of the British Folk Movement of the mid-1960s, starting life as the Strawberry Hill Boys playing bluegrass.
Their 1967 debut, “All Our Own Work,” featured singer Sandy Denny a year before she joined Fairport Convention.
The current Strawbs line-up comprises Dave Cousins, undoubtedly the heart and soul of the band, lead guitarist Dave Lambert, bass player Chas Cronk, and drummer Tony Fernandez, who recorded and toured together in the 1970s.
They are joined by keyboard virtuoso Dave Bainbridge of the group Iona.

Tickets are £21.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 29 April 2017
| 7:30pm

Voted Folk Singer of the Year at the 2016 BBC Folk Awards, influential singer-violinist Nancy Kerr brings her Sweet Visitor Band that includes, James Fagan (Cara Dillon, The James Bros), Tom Wright (Albion Band, and Eliza Carthy Band), Rowan Rheingans (Lady Maisery) and top bassist Tim Yates (Blackbeard’s Tea Party) to the Pavilion.

Already a respected interpreter of traditional material, Nancy’s emergence as a writer of rare style has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives about love and conflict, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life.

Tickets are £19.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Wednesday 1 November 2017

From the bright lights of the Grand Ol’ Opry to Glastonbury and festival stages worldwide, touring with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, and opening seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out “For Your Pleasure” U.K. stadium tour, the multi award winning Hot Club of Cowtown have become the premier ambassadors of Hot Jazz and Western Swing through the unstoppable power of their breathtaking live show.
This time they leave their home in Austin, Texas to take a short tour of the UK (and we are naturally delighted that they will be once again playing at the Pavilion) to give us glimpses into Romany music and culture that capture the sophistication and sizzle of Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt’s Quintette du Hot Club de France.
Here The Hot Club of Cowtown share Hogmanay with Jools Holand!
