20200117: Friday 17th January: Nick Barraclough and All the Federales
Support: Amy Goddard
All the Federales are Nick Barraclough, guitar & vocals; Steve Reynolds, accordion & vocals; Phil Meyler, guitar & vocals; Richard Keys, harmonica; Fabian Bonner, bass and Mal Hyde Smith, drums. The basic idea is that quite a lot of music has too many notes, unnecessary chords and unfathomable lyrical content. So All the Federales have pulled together a load of songs that are easy to play, easy to understand and usually over after a couple of minutes.
All the Federales are a triumph of style over content.
Amy Goddard is a folk artist with a flair for story songs, which cover personal matters, history and legend and also current social comment. She stands out as an artist across disciplines, designing her own album covers and even performing on a hand-crafted guitar she built herself. Her vocals have been likened to Sandy Denny and Joni Mitchell for their clear, pure and almost fragile sound. Amy's love of folk and acoustic music dates from her discovery of the music of Simon and Garfunkel. She loves to combine her creative skills in building guitars, writing and recording her songs and creating a complete work of art in the form of an album.
