Ferris & Sylvester plus support (BBC Inroducing/ Folk/ Blues)


Whiskers, Newquay

FREE ENTRY 

Ferris & Sylvester are songwriters - With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, Ferris & Sylvester sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit. Their clever combination of blues, folk and rock n roll has created a distinctive genre of their own.

The London-based pair met two and a half years ago and have since won over the capital with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. This year, the duo released their highly anticipated EP 'Made In Streatham' which they self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label 'Archtop Records', the EP has clocked up millions of Spotify streams, rose to No.1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart and received widespread praise across the board. 

After a packed summer of Festivals including appearances at BST with Eric Clapton, Bath Fest with Robert Plant and main stage at Wilderness with BBC Introducing, the pair are moving into the next phase of their exciting career with new music planned for early 2019. 

'A masterpiece of Brit Folk that should already have made them household names.' - Mojo Magazine

‘A rich and fully realised sound that leaves one pining for a full-length.’ – Rolling Stone Magazine

‘Alt Simon & Garfunkel: dreamy pop with spiky sentiments.’ - The Guardian

‘Harmonies & grounded tones that seem like they were born together.’ - BBC Introducing

‘Here’s the thing: They played to nine people and a dog with charm and gusto, as if they were playing to thousands, like it was the most important gig they had done. That’s how you know they're in it for the right reasons - they love making music, they have something to say, and they want you to hear it.’ - Baylen Leonard

Gozer Goodspeed (Blues-Folk/ Rock/ Indie)

Ever since an old, beat-up acoustic guitar washed up on the banks of a river near him during a rainstorm when he was just a teen, Gozer Goodspeed has been addicted to playing music. 

After his first gig, the venue-holder gifted him a hat in lieu of payment. Hundreds of gigs later, much has changed - but the guitar and hat remain.

Mishka Shubaly (Storyteller/ Best Selling Author/ Cult Songwriter/ Smart Ass)

After receiving an expensive MFA from Columbia University, Mishka Shubaly promptly quit writing to play music. He lived out of a Toyota minivan for a year, touring nonstop, and has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Decemberists among others. A narrative published in NYPress about his romance with an opiate marked his return to writing. 

His three Kindle Singles for Amazon have all been bestsellers. He writes true stories about drink, drugs, disasters, desire, deception and their aftermath. His work has been praised for its grit, humor, fearlessness and heart. 'The Long Run,' his mini-memoir detailing his transformation from alcoholic drug abuser to sober ultrarunner is one of the best-selling Kindle Singles to date.

Mishka Shubaly lives in Brooklyn where he writes music and plays bass for Freshkills. He is at work on a new solo record of his original songs and a full-length memoir. He does not own a dog but he thinks about them often.

Two Man Ting (Afro-Roots)

"Brilliant - love this sound! If you want a bit of early summer, then get this in your ear-holes!" Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

TwoManTing was formed in 2004, when Jon Lewis and Jah-man Aggrey were working together in world/dance band Le Cod Afrique, performing at the likes of WOMAD, Montreux Jazz Festival and Glastonbury.

Since then, the duo has been performing regularly throughout the UK, and particularly on the Festival circuit. Festie shows have included Glastonbury, the Secret Garden Party, Musicport, Green Man, Whychwood, Ely Folk Festival, Big Green Gathering, Off the Tracks, Sunrise Celebration, Broadstairs Folk Week, Small World, Waveform, Nozstock, Bearded Theory....to name but a few.

2011 saw the release of the duo's acclaimed album "Legacy", much featured on BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music, and in 2012, Jon and Jah played at over 30 UK festivals, and 100 gigs up and down the country. 

2013 - The new EP "Ar Lek U" features 3 brand new tracks, and a re-working of an old favourite, inpired by the beaches of Freetown and honed in the muddy, sunny fields of England.

"Full of such bright, tuneful moments, this will really take-off in an intimate live setting" fRoots Magazine

"Such is the blast of sunshine this emanates, it might well cure rickets" Venue Magazine

Rodney Branigan (Texas Blues, Rock, Roots, Folk Fusion)

Implausibly mastering the playing of two instruments at once and putting the rest of us to shame. Make no mistake, this is no novelty act. Rather he manages to combine an almost piano-like capacity, focusing each of his hands on either melodic or rhythmic, percussive duties and the results are mesmerising. Vocally comparable to Jeff Buckley and Simon & Garfunkel.

SO FUN TO WATCH and so mesmerising to listen to. DON’T MISS THIS!

Socials - @samgreenmusic.hq

 

Sam's percussive, acoustic slide guitar style, combined with stomp box, loop station and harmonica, have served as the foundation; on which he has built a strong reputation as a live act with universal appeal. His one-man-band shows are raw, intimate offerings of virtuosic slide guitar, infectious rhythms, engaging song writing and a soulful, blues inspired voice.

 

His travels have taken him and his music to some of the most highly respected venues and music festivals in the world. In 2013 Sam played Glastonbury festival where he and his band were described by The Independent News Paper as "One of the hot new acts making the summer swing". Since then, he has spent the majority of his time touring, playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, Boomtown and Shambala, alongside Independently releasing his music. 

 

March 2017 saw the release of Sam’s first full length solo album 'Just stand still' a record which tells the story of coming home to Devon and laying down roots on which to start a new chapter. The album features eight new songs written at home on his 8-track recorder and developed over the space of a year where he had the time and space to create, surf and recover from a hectic few years of non-stop D.I.Y touring. Sam appeared in 2017 at the world famous Sziget Festival in Budapest along with his band. He then spent the rest of the 2017/18 winter season touring his new solo album (opening for acts such as Wildwood Kin, Echotown and Wille and the Bandits) and has recently released 'Onsette Return,' the latest EP from Sam Green and the Midnight Heist.

 

For a great night of live music, don't miss Sam Green.
