A word about our listings

A guide for Customers

These days artists and bands tend to book their tours months in advance. In order to give you the best notice of up and coming shows we list events once they have been confirmed by the band or their management.

The downside of this is that dates can change due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes at very short notice. We do our best to ensure that this site is kept as up to date as is possible, with updates happening at least once a week.

Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you check these listing prior to setting out for your show especially if you are travelling any distance.

Dark Side Of The Wall
£12.00adv £14.00door
Doors 8:00pm
The ever-popular award winning ‘Dark Side Of The Wall’ return once again to present an evening of classic Pink Floyd music in their own inimitable style.

One of those is the band’s long-serving, and Leicester-based, bass player Steve Chilton, says, “I always think that one of our great selling points is the fact that we love what we do. Live gigs should always be about that band and audience interaction. Pink Floyd’s music and persona is often perceived as quite serious but whilst we perform their music with the love and respect it deserves, we always bring our own personalities to the stage. This is definitely no ‘look-a-like’ tribute band and we’re proud of that. Who’d want to look like Pink Floyd anyway?”

In well over 2 hours of reverent tribute to their heroes DSOTW perform music from all Pink Floyd’s classic albums and feature tracks such as Comfortably Numb, Money, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Another Brick In The Wall to name just a few. If you’ve seen Dark Side Of The Wall in concert before then you’ll know it’s a gig not to be missed as they bring their theatre show into the more intimate setting of the Musician.

The Sandy Denny Project
£17.00adv £19.00door
Doors 1:30pm - 4:30pm
The Sandy Denny Project pay homage and cast a new shine and brilliance on the life and works of one of Britain’s best loved folk singers. Sandy Denny’s remarkable writing is approached not as a tribute band, slavishly copying the records, but as a tribute in its best sense – an interpretation of Sandy’s wonderful work. Her best-known composition “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” has been recorded by many and her recorded work the subject of numerous reissues, along with a wealth of previously unreleased material which has appeared over the 40+ years since her death at the tender age of 31.

BBC Radio Northampton, as part of National Music Day 2017, chose ex-Fotheringay MkII members Sally Barker (The Poozies, BBC TV's 'The Voice') and guitarist PJ Wright (TradArrr, The Dylan Project) to celebrate the award of Sandy Denny's Blue Plaque at Byfield Village Hall, the scene of her last ever concert in 1978. The following year Sally and PJ constructed a dream folk-rock band (with frequent Fairport Convention guest Anna Ryder, multi-instrumentalist Marion Fleetwood, and the rhythm section of bassist Mat Davies and drummer Mark Stevens from folk-rock legends Little Johnny England) to commemorate the passing of Byfield resident Sandy for a sell-out concert at the Village Hall. 'Sandyfest' and 'The Sandy Denny Project' were born.

With every year Sandy’s reputation continues to grow in stature as a songwriter and interpreter of traditional material, and the six musicians in the Sandy Denny Project, who share an impressive folk-rock pedigree, are each at the very top of their musical game.

The band also features: bassist Rick Hunt, drummer Clive Edwards and guitarist John Buckton reviewed as "one of the very best guitarists in British rock blues today, with a style that’s tasteful and subtle, yet which wails with true blues aggression".This is an authentic supergroup, and to all intents and purposes a direct continuation of BACK STREET CRAWLER.

Over The Moon
£10.00adv £12.00door
Doors 8:00pm
Canadian roots duo Over The Moon's Suzanne Levesque and Craig Bignell are award winning multi-instrumentalists/vocalists that met, fell in love, got married and discovered their voices blended so well that people often tear up upon hearing them sing. Living on a ranch in the foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, there will inevitably be a strong sense of place and the rhythms of the land when you start to make music. The resonances are there for all to hear, reflecting the pulse of life lived in a territory that is both dirt-hard, rugged and beautiful.

Some might call it country or bluegrass, but with their accomplished song-writing, harmonies and great arrangements, it’s just darned good music. Over The Moon come into their own on stage, charming and engaging the audience with their story-based songs and way of telling immersive tales that bookend the songs perfectly. Theirs is a gentle, beautiful approach to harmonies, but they have a wonderfully fun and playful side as well.

“The very essence of traditional country-folk at its finest. Soothing for the soul and a glimpse into the ethereal.” - Maverick

“Their voices blend as if they were born to sing together.”— Mike Morrison, American Roots UK
