From the West Coast of Canada:

Fish & Bird    (www.fishandbird.ca)

Fish and Bird are an alternative Folk-Country five piece who will be touring the UK for the first time to promote their 4th album"Something In The Ether ". This album has been creating great excitement and getting excellent revues all over the place, including one from Rob Fearnley of FATEA magazine who described it as:

 

"a folk/alternative crossover record of rare quality-

a solidly brilliant album" 

Fish and Bird have been described as a:

"genuinely exciting band who stand head and shoulders above the pack and are likely to continue to set the benchmark for modern folk, for years to come"

Be sure to catch them this time around at our most intimate venue because Fish & Bird are going places and they may not pass our way again.

Support: Joe Boon & Bryony + Helena Laws

One of our aims has always been to promote and encourage local, young musical talent so we are delighted to welcome back Grayshott's very own Joe Boon who is a gifted singer, pianist and guitarist. We last saw Joe when he supported The Old Dance School and this time he will be appearing with friend Bryony, who has a wonderful singing voice.

 

We are also pleased to introduce Helena Laws to our audience. Helena is another Grayshott resident and she will play guitar and sing for us.

CARAVAN

At: St. John's Church, St. John's Road, FARNCOMBE, Nr. Godalming, Surrey GU7 3EJ

A product of the late 60s and early 70s Canterbury Prog. Rock scene, Caravan are sounding better than ever and we are delighted to welcome the band for a very rare live performance. Grayshott Village Hall was unavailable, so we have decided to go a little further afield and have enlisted the help of Julian Lewry at Farncombe Music Club, in a joint venture. We've waited a long time for this and didn't want to miss the chance of seeing a live performance from the band who brought us such gems as: "The Land Of Grey and Pink", "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night" and "Cunning Stunts".

They'll also be playing tracks from their 2014, crowd-funded album "Paradise Filter". These guys rarely play live gigs so this will be a historical night in many ways.

Don't miss it!

Advance tickets £16. £19 on the door
