It's our favourite Colly hostest with the mostest's going away party... Micki's leaving to go and travel the world, so come down and wish her 'Bon Voyage', it's going to be a fantastic night, featuring:
Richard Gardner is one of the hardest working musicians from the North East! He holds a lot of shows all over the region with a back catalogue of songs bigger than any yellow pages! He is an entertainer and a brilliant songwriter, an amazing musician. He played the very first Live...@The_Colly and got a hell of a response from the crowd and that is why we have him on again. His music is a wide range from Folk, Blues to even Pop (in his own way) Guaranteed to make you move and listen... the one and only - Richard Gardner!
Michael Littlefield and Scott Taylor
Micheal and Scott are an amazing duo, both have authentic old school blues voices, play their instruments with pure passion and if soul could be bottled you would want some of theirs. Michael's guitar playing is unbelievable, the fact he can sing whilst playing such complex guitar riffs is outstanding. Scott's harmonica is just as good, he growls and the fast melodies are backed up with a Muddy Waters voice that oozes coolness. These two are not to be missed!
Monkey Junk are John Nellist and Andy Turnbull. They are the founders of The Monkey Junk Blues Club which is on every Thursday at The Butterfly Cabinet. Playing a range of Gospel, Delta and Traditional blues they feature one of the best blues guitarists in the region in Andy. He is one serious player, his slide guitar is demonic, his finger picking is unreal and his rag time is unstoppable!! Come and see Monkey Junk play some real blues!
