Manitoba Hal Live in Parbold. Workshop & Concert
Date: 22nd June 2018
Details:  For over 15 years, Canadian blues artist Manitoba Hal has been forging a career as one of the country’s most preeminent roots and blues multi-instrumentalists. With 14 recordings under his own name and appearances on countless others, guitarist, ukulele master and singer-songwriter Manitoba Hal is a musical renaissance man.

Known for his deep baritone voice and mastery of his instrument – whether it be on guitar or his trusty ukulele - Manitoba Hal takes his audience from the deep south to the islands with songs that are mournful, hopeful, silly, romantic and introspective. His original songs have become modern classics and his take on standards and popular blues songs of the past have brought him to the forefront of the blues scene. Manitoba Hal has been influenced equally by artists such as Gordon Lightfoot and Stephen Fearing as much as blues forefathers Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. These influences offer a uniquely Canadian sound to Hal’s blues and work to tie together the exceptional prose in his lyrics with grit and spirit of blues music.


WITH SUPPORT FROM CHONKINFECKLE

"A charming pro that holds his own against time and tide in fine style, it's easy to say this is as good as white boy blues gets..."

The Smiths Ltd
Date: 8th September 2018
Details:  The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig in Manchester to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.

“Brilliant Smiths tribute band, they are amazing!” – Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets)

“The Smiths Ltd are a class act. They are indistinguishable from The Smiths.” – North West End

“I may have missed The Smiths the first time around, but after last night’s show I felt that I was really there back in 1983!” – The Hype Media.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony.

Doors: 7:30pm

£10
