A spirited fusion of friendship and musicianship, the Phil Beer Band delve into the back catalogues of Phil’s beloved country, rock, folk and blues influences throughout the years to create their infectious and unique ‘folk n roll’ sound. Throw in Phil’s blistering guitar solos, a healthy seasoning of lively tunes and banter and a pint or three, and you know you’re in for a cracking night.
Completing Phil’s lineup are Gareth Turner (melodeons), Olivia Dunn (fiddles), Emily Slade (guitar, vocals), Greg McDonald (bass, vocals) and Steve Crickett (drums).
with support from The Hawthornes.
Since forming in March 2013, The Hawthornes have already chalked up an impressive resume. Relentlessly playing all over the country for anyone who will listen, they have obtained a strong, loyal following thanks in part to landing top support slots with acts such as The Phil Beer Band (of Show of Hands), Terry & Gerry, 3 Daft Monkeys and Gerry Colvin (of ColvinQuarmby).
During this time they have also managed to release their debut album ‘Stoneville Street’ to critical acclaim and play top grass roots festivals such as New Forest Folk Festival, Lakefest and Y Not! Festival.
Phil is yet another regular with us. This is a real coup to get his full band

this will be a night of great music. I am already excited as I know this
band will 'rock' our special space like no other. Definitely a gig not to be
