20190412: Friday 12th April: Colvin Nestlerode Ralls
Support: Nick Barraclough and All the Federales
Colvin Nestlerode Ralls: A welcome return to the Club for these three great performers. Gerry Colvin is the most engaging performer you are likely to meet. He’s been recognised as one of Britain’s best songwriters. Mandolinist Daniel Nestlerode will delight with his instrumental skill, his history-soaked songs, and his warm voice. Yorkshireman Kim Ralls is a new and powerful voice in English folk music.
All the Federales: Nick Barraclough (guitar and vocals), Steve Reynolds (accordion and vocals), Phil Meyler (guitar and vocals), Richard Keys (harmonica), Fabian Bonner (bass) and Mal Hyde Smith (drums). Their songs of the border, the bayou and the bedroom, are a triumph of style over content. A lot of music has too many notes, unnecessary chords and unfathomable lyrical content, so All the Federales have pulled together songs that are easy to play, easy to understand and usually over after a couple of minutes.
8pm (Doors open 7:30pm)
Entry: £10(door), £9(advance), £8(members).
