Blend of blue grass and blues.

Gotham City String Band play the Heart of England Blue Grass club tonight. They play and sing traditional American blue grass with western blends of country blues, honky tonk and string band music.

Pete Christian is on acoustic bass guitar, Mike Wareham lead guitar, Mark Tindle on fiddle, mandolin, Geoff Bowers on banjo, mandolin.

The band describe themselves as blue grass addicts, so they should fit in nicely at the club.

Award winning duo Capricorn visits the Broken Arrow CWC tonight. John Williams is lead guitar and vocals, Peter Guy is bass guitar and vocals. Both are from Merseyside and been together for about 12 years.

May sees them at the 11th Kings Lynn Festival of Country Music billed with Raymond Froggatt. In September they are at Belvedere Park Festival, Burton on Trent.

Their style of lyrics and music surely puts them at the top of their profession especially after listening to their version of What Colour Is The Wind written by Charlie Landsborough. I never tire of seeing this duo.

Also tonight Rawhide play Stoneythorpe CWC.

This four-piece band consists lead guitar, bass guitar and rhythm guitar and drummer. They have been together for about two years. Their new tape out with 12 tracks called Moving On includes a new song called Friends which is rapidly rising in the country charts.
