Thursday 13 August GENO WASHINGTON & THE YO YOS

Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60's soul man, enjoying cult status in soul, blues and RnB, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer.

A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.

In 1980, 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners.  Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!

Geno Washington & The Yo Yos features members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RnB and house rockin' blues.

Thursday 3 September MARTIN TURNER (EX WISHBONE ASH)

Martin Turner and his band return to perform another classic Wishbone Ash album in its entirety - 1973's Wishbone Four, as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.  Wishbone Four followed in the wake of the classic 1972 album, Argus.  Rather than attempting to repeat the highly successful formula of Argus, the band elected to explore fresh territory with Wishbone Four which contained shorter songs and displayed a strong folk influence on several tracks and a harder rock sound on the others.  The band's first self-produced album, Wishbone Four, included stage favourites "Doctor", "Rock n Roll Widow" and "No Easy Road" alongside deep cuts such as "Everybody Needs a Friend" and "Sorrel".  Wishbone Four reached number 12 on the UK album chart.  This Autumn 2020 tour will mark the very first time Wishbone Four has been performed in its entirety on stage and is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.

Thursday 24 September STEPHEN DALE PETIT

Stephen Dale Petit and his razor sharp band, bassist Sophie Lord and drummer, Jack Greenwood, perform songs from their new album, 2020 Visions, alongside blues deep cuts.  Dynamic excitement born of the blues, with a refreshingly daring approach, launches Petit from the roots of deep blues boldly into hitherto unexplored rock guitar excellence, through influences of Charlie Patton and Blind Willie Johnson to BB King and Chicago's Chess, to Cream and Zeppelin via the Bluesbreakers, forging stratospheric new-millennium six-string soundscapes.
Classic Rock Magazine says "Petit occupies a stunning middle ground between the fire of Freddie King, the instinct of Jimmy Page and the soul of Eric Clapton". He has played alongside guitar legends such as Eric Clapton, David Gilmour and B B King.   www.stephendalepetit.com
