JULY
 

Friday 12th July  Ponchartrain

Ponchartrain's music can be described as ‘vintage Americana’ – it's a honky-tonk, rockabilly, Cajun, bluesy kind of thing. The vibe is very 40s and 50s, drawing on writers like Little Jimmy Dickens, Leadbelly, Wiley Barkdull and Bessie Smith.

Ponchartrain's Paul provides the lead vocals, and rhythm guitar, doubling on steel guitar and dobro. He is joined by Jean Godden on fiddle and accordion. The band also features Stig Manley on lead guitar, Joe Allan on double-bass and Tim Robinson on drums.

Friday 19th July  Poor Box Brothers

In a change to the previously advertised programme, we are pleased to present.. The Poor Box Brothers - Marc Clements and Ben W King.

Having played with innumerable bands on the road for over 40 years (including session work with Ginger Baker, Andy Rourke of The Smiths, and Van Morrison) Marc decided to get back to basics with harmonica player, Ben, and play the music that inspired him as a teenager.

Ben has been playing guitar for over a decade, having grown up listening to all kind of blues. He picked up the harmonica in recent years and hasn’t put it down since.

Stripped down to its basic constituents, a rural sound, Marc’s finger-picking style is known as ‘Piedmont’. Syncopated and dynamic, it has a kind of rag-time feel, with its origins in south-east Virginia and Atlanta, Georgia. Ben’s sax-like harp playing reflects the music’s Delta origins.

Friday 26th July  Just Parsons

AUGUST
 

We will be taking the opportunity during the summer to undertake essential maintenance. 

Friday Waterside nights will therefore not take place during August except for our fabulous Transmission Indie DJs who have interrupted their luxurious summer holiday in the Maldives to deliver you a night of punk, new wave and indie music on vinyl.

Friday 16th August  Transmission - Off The Record - 6pm - 11pm

DJs Tim James and Ade Poole will be spinning their favourite alternative records from the 70s, 80s 90s and beyond from 6pm-11pm in the Waterside and they would love you to bring a couple of your favourite indie records along to add to the mix. 

It'll be like a normal Transmission night but with more surface noise and skips and an early bedtime, so bring the kids, the dog, yourselves, your dancing shoes and a couple of indie tunes (on vinyl) that are close to your heart.
