Beardsmith

Beardsmith are a six piece family band from Cheshire, consisting of Neil, four sons, Graham, Gary, Ged, Gil and one sister, Alice.

The band have been together for 12 years, firstly as a 4 piece, which included Neil, Graham, Gary, and Ged, and then changed to a 6 piece in 2011. Even though Gil does not appear at every show he is still a permanent member of the band.

Since the band started, Beardsmith have aimed to be the very best they can be, which is the thought that is behind every live performance and every song they write and record. They are currently traveling the length and breadth of the country performing to packed venues of all shapes and sizes as well as writing and recording.

The music they write is a mixture of all the types of music that they love, which includes the driving guitars of the big American rock bands mixed with the vocals of bands like Queen, plus a hint of Brit rock and a flavour of bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.

Lending from their influences, these guys also seamlessly blend their own great blues songs into their performances and deliver their set with a touch rarely achieved this side of Chicago.

Kate Rusby @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Kate Rusby

Of all the stars in Folk Music’s wondrous firmament few shine as brightly as Yorkshire’s Kate Rusby.

A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that rare ability to transport her audience, of touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination.

Kate is bringing her ever-popular Spring tour to some venues not visited for a while this year together with a few regular favourites taking in some places off the beaten track and also some smaller venues in an attempt to extend to audiences not always reached.

Audiences are sure to be thoroughly entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue stretching over her two decades of music making together with a selection of fresh new songs from her latest album Ghost (released Summer 2014). As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents.

The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. Rusby’s wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.


‘Everybody loves and respects Kate Rusby, not just for her lovely voice, but for the way she has moved folk forward while remaining true to tradition…’ Sunday Times

‘…exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit’ Daily Telegraph

Space

SPACE REUNITED!

In November 2011 the big news hit that Space were back. The new line-up reunited original members Tommy, Jamie and Franny back together for the first time in 10 years. They were joined by the other members of Tommy’s band 'Tommy Scott and the Red Scare'; Phil Hartley (Bass / Double Bass), Ryan Clarke (Vintage Keys) and Allan Jones (Drums). Space’s return was cemented with a reunion gig at the O2 Academy Liverpool in December 2011. The show was a quick sell-out, and gave fans an early taste of the band’s new material and sound.

Through 2012 Space worked on their latest album 'Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab', as well as performing at various venues and festivals. By September it had become apparent that Jamie was no longer part of the group, though no official reason was given for the latest split. The rest of the band continued to work and are now touring the UK.

Electro 80's @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Electro 80's

The Eighties were a time of radical changes in both music and fashion.

In the aftermath of the punk revolution, daring New Romantics embraced developing sounds and technologies to transform the music industry forever.

Gary Numan, The Human League, Kraftwerk & Depeche Mode all helped to create a totally new genre of music; Electronica or Synth-pop, a futuristic new sound that almost seemed like science fiction at the time.

Electro 80's pay tribute to this era, and have lovingly recreated songs by the afore mentioned pioneers (and many more), to create a live entertainment show that is sure to transport everyone from this generation, back to the days of underground club scenes and even school discos.

Unforgettable classics like Fade to Grey and Just Can't Get Enough are performed alongside lesser-known tracks, which will jog your memory in a nostalgic show that is both visually and acoustically stunning.

Beardsmith @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven Permanent link

Beardsmith

Beardsmith are a six piece family band from Cheshire, consisting of Neil, four sons, Graham, Gary, Ged, Gil and one sister, Alice.

The band have been together for 12 years, firstly as a 4 piece, which included Neil, Graham, Gary, and Ged, and then changed to a 6 piece in 2011. Even though Gil does not appear at every show he is still a permanent member of the band.

Since the band started, Beardsmith have aimed to be the very best they can be, which is the thought that is behind every live performance and every song they write and record. They are currently traveling the length and breadth of the country performing to packed venues of all shapes and sizes as well as writing and recording.

The music they write is a mixture of all the types of music that they love, which includes the driving guitars of the big American rock bands mixed with the vocals of bands like Queen, plus a hint of Brit rock and a flavour of bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.
