Joanna Weston + Rebecca McIntee
Wednesday night we hosted local talent Joanna Weston at the Cavern. As well as performing in this years Guil Fest on the acoustic stage, Joanna has toured Europe and released two EP’s called ‘Pieces Of The Puzle’ and ‘What Do I Do?’ which you can buy from her site HERE. Her live performance was intermit and memorable. Her voice seems to fill your head with the true meaning of the lyrics she sings and her warm bubbly personalty comes across in her stage presents. You MUST check out her music and see her live, she embodies everything that’s great about current Folk music.
Supporting Joanna we had the young up and coming talent Rebecca McIntee. At the age of just 16 she gave a blinding performance playing some of her own songs and covers. She’s one to look out for so remember the name because you’ll be seeing a lot of great things from this girl in the years to come.
Domi Hawken + The Artie Fufkins
What a treat we had on Thursday, rising star Domi Hawken made an appearance playing some of her own songs. Her powerful voice coupled with her beautifully crafted songs makes for an act that will blow your socks off. To find out more about this amazing talent, go to www.domihawken.com
The Artie Fufkins made their first appearance at the Cavern on Wednesday as a support for Domi. This fantastic trio were formed by singer Matt Carr in 2009. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength releasing their new EP ‘It’s Either Me Or The Wall Paper’ which you can listen to HERE.
Phillip Goodhand – Tait & Dave The Rave
We had a full house on Friday with Phillip Goodhand – Tait & Dave The Rave. As well has some of the original members of the Stormville Shakers getting and proving they still had it, Dave read some extracts from his book ‘An Age Of Bewilderment’ telling stories of the bands past which were both hilarious and memorable. A truly amazing night and a massive ‘Hats Off’ to these music legends.
Album Of The Week
This weeks winner is ‘Concubine Chronicles’ by our very own Redtenbachers Funkestra. This live studio album captures the bands sound perfectly, feel good, high energy and down right Funky. I’ve chosen this album out of all their others because you can listen to any band on a recording and they can sound good but then when you go watch them live they don’t live up to the expectation of the album, but these guys live are soooooo good its comes across brilliantly on the recording. To get the album click HERE to go to the Funk store.
You can catch Rentenbachers Funkestra live at The Farncombe Cavern on 1st June, Click HERE for tickets.
