Gerry Colvin Band
Friday 02 November 2018: 8.00pm
Folk-pop legend Gerry Colvin must be one of the most endearing and energetic musicians on the planet, just as much at home playing small clubs as he is supporting Status Quo on their Aquostic Live Tour. This multi-talented singer-songwriter performs all his own material, combining catchy melodies with thoughtful lyrics on love, society, angst and Johnny Cash! His be-suited on stage performance combines Frank Sinatra, Lee Evans, and the afore-mentioned Man in Black. Genius? Madcap? Maverick? Yes, all of these things…and a lot, lot more.
A stellar musical CV includes co-writing with Alison Moyet, being a John Peel favourite with his 80’s band Terry and Gerry (recently reformed), winning best band (with his band Colvinquarmby) at Fairport’s Cropredy Festival as well as the Hancock Award for best live folk act. A Glastonbury stalwart, he has played several times and also acted as compere on more than one occasion. As locals may know, he is also the brainchild behind the Knitted Character Folk Festival, held at The Blue Boar Inn in Temple Grafton in June.
Gerry will be playing songs from his eighth CD “Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other” as well as favourites from his previous recordings, including “Jazz Tales of Country Folk”. – just expect a great night’s entertainment from this extraordinary performer. Once seen, never forgotten. Fun guaranteed.
Gerry will be joined by musicians Jerome Davies, double bass, Trish Power, accordion Lyndon Webb, guitar.
