Thanks to everyone who came to this month’s Loudhailer Acoustic. Lovely audience and great performers Phil Friend, Catherine Scott, Brian Williams, Martin Peirson, Roy Kibbler and Jim Orwin. It was good to have time for a second round of songs and everyone was ace.
We didn’t take any photos this month, so instead here’s a selection from previous nights:
Thanks to everyone at The Back Room in Cottingham, great to see Paul back in the driving seat.
The next Loudhailer Acoustic is the first Thursday of the month, 2nd May at 7.30 pm. Be great to see you, come and listen to the music and let us know if you would like to play a song or two.
We’ve got some great gigs coming up and highly recommend both Nick Harper and The Yawpers.
First up, Easter Sunday April 21st Nick Harper and Loudhailer Electric Company at O’Riley’s, Beverley Road, Hull. This promises to be a fab night, Nick Harper brings swingin’ sixties London to Hull. Nick is superb and his new show is special! We’re especially pleased to be opening the show with a suitably swingin’ support set! 58 Fordwych Road in Kilburn, London was where Nick spent the first few years of life. It was also a hang out for Nick’s parents’ bohemian friends. The 58 Fordwych Road Tour recteates that flat in 2019 and Nick is airing some seminal acoustic classics as a tribute to his dad and his contempories at a pivotal point in music history. Nick is playing gems by Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourne, Jackson C. Frank, Sandy Denny, Paul Simon et al. As well as the one and only Roy Harper of course! Click here for Tickets
May 27th Yawpers and Loudhailer Electric Company at O’Rileys Hull UK. Straight outta Denver The Yawpers wre awesome last year in Hull. They return to the city for an unmissable night of Bank Holiday blues and rock n roll.
“The Yawpers come out of some beer-drenched hole in Denver, full of fuzzy slide guitar with one ear towards 1970s rock n roll and another towards 1960s Delta blues.”
Consequence of Sound
‘Think MC5 with better vocals. Think of most bands and add better lyrics, ferocious howls and chants, and yes, Whitmanesque, barbaric yawps sounding from the stage…pure rock and roll, the way the White Stripes were’.
