Lincoln Folk, Roots & World Music Festival

Before we know it summer will be upon us, and by popular demand, so will this festival……

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that the festival will be returning to the county and taking place at Lincoln Alive on Saturday 14th July 2018

Following the great success of last years festival, the line-up had to “equally…….if not more impressive” and with Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle headlining, special guest Julie Felix and four other very different striking acts; this will most definitely be a musical experience not to miss!

Born in London on Christmas day 1943 Jacqui McShee grew up listening to music played on her parents gramophone – from Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald and big bands through to popular classics.  Jacqui showed little interest in music though until she heard Miles Davis and John Coltrane at CND friends, becoming the most important thing for her – it quite literally changed her life.  On CND marches she would lead the singing with her sister Pam and did many gigs locally in South East London for charities such as War On Want and Oxfam.

Jacqui’s beautiful crystal-clear vocals set the standard for female British folk and the band was legendary on the folk-rock scene with virtuoso guitarists John Renbourn and Bert Jansch, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox.  The original Pentangle expanded the frontiers of Folk in the 1960s and ’70s and since then, Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle has progressed and expanded the original concept and continues to make ground-breaking music.

In 1964 Julie Felix arrived in England after leaving California and became the first solo folk artist to be signed to a major British record company when she signed with Decca.  In 1966 Julie became the resident singer on the amazingly popular TV programme “The Frost Report”, and quickly became a household name. She went on to appear in her own TV series on BBC1 and BBC2 and recorded hit singles on Mickey Most’s RAK label.

In October 2013, Julie was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla.

The full line-up comprises of:

  • Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle – features saxophonist Gary Foote, bassist & guitarist Alan Thompson, drummer & percussionist Gerry Conway and Spencer Cozens on keyboards!
  • Julie Felix – with over 50 years in the music world, Julie will be celebrating her 80th birthday in 2018 with a special concert at the Charing Cross Theatre in London!
  • Blair Dunlop – in a short four year career is astounding alone but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes!
  • Galley Beggar – with a sound that incorporates all manner of unexpected elements while always celebrating the mischievous spirit of folk music across the centuries!
  • Said The Maiden – three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music when they reunited several years after spending their school years together in Hertfordshire!
  • The Beaubowbelles – combining the swing, wit and class of a vintage vocal harmony group with the depth, heart and energy of a contemporary English folk band!

No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day either, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone’s taste!

The Brew UK Tour 2018.......Rocking in Wolverhampton!

A fast growing reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting rock acts!

The great news for rock fans, blues fans, live music lovers and aspiring musicians in and around Wolverhampton, is that The Brew will be playing at The Slade Rooms on Saturday 17th February; the final date of their 10 day UK Tour

From Grimsby, The Brew has appeared three times on Germany’s Prestigious Rockpalast show and has toured with ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and played alongside legends like Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, Chickenfoot and Joe Satriani!

The Brew have seen their albums chart across Europe in Germany, Poland, Spain and in 2014 they were the only UK band to play at the Woodstock festival in Poland to 250,000 people.  There aren’t too many bands nowadays that get to release six albums while maintaining the original line-up of Tim Smith (bass), Kurtis Smith (drums) & Jason Barwick (guitar/vocals).

Their last studio album “Shake The Tree” with their own brand of modern rock with psychedelic touches, captures the power of their live performances remarkably well.  It’s fair to say though, that the only way to get a real adrenalin-shot and experience the drive, passion and explosive action of this band, is to see them live.  Until then, you can get a feel for what’s in store by having a listen (and look) at their live performance on Rockpalast in November 2017 at http://www1.wdr.de/mediathek/video/sendungen/rockpalast/video-live-preview-the-brew—kam-100.html

In 2017, The Brew signed with Napalm records and 2018 will see the release of new music from the band and updates on the album will be posted on their website, social media sites and announced during their UK Tour

When you see The Brew live on stage it becomes crystal clear why they get rave reviews wherever they play and on their appearance at The Slade Rooms, “a very cool place and totally exciting to be playing here”, says Jason Barwick from the band

Don’t miss seeing The Brew + support at The Slade Rooms on Saturday 17th February

The venue is located at 36-40 Broad St, Wolverhampton, West Midlands WV1 1HP

Advance tickets are £12.00 + bf and can be purchased by calling 01472 349 222 and online at http://www.solidentertainments.com/presents.htm#BREW-TOUR
