Let’s hope March will bring us some better weather. However whatever the weather you can enjoy a range of videos that can be accessed from the Woodman website. In total there are now over sixty! All your local artists feature as well as major acts that have appeared recently. Good as they are, there is nothing like the real thing, so come along and see on:
04/03/11 Ghost Trains
New to the club this month are Ghost Trains appearing here at the Woodman prior to their 14 day tour of Latvia and Russia. Ghost Trains were declared, 'the highlight of the festival' at The Acoustic Festival of Great Britain in summer 2010. Tim Ellis (vocals & guitar), Elijah Wolfenheart (lead guitar & harmonies) and Greg Wood (percussion) formed the group in September 2009 and have been going from strength to strength since. Have a listen to their music on their web site!
11/03/11 Pete Kelly
Pete Kelly is one of the stalwarts and favourites at the club. Look forward to some excellent singing, driving rhythms, and intricate guitar work. Pete will get the whole club rocking with Marrakech Express and Love the One You Will. Pete has been coming to the club for lots of years and such is his music, with his laid back but exacting style, that he always draws a big crowd.
18/03/11 Máire Ni Chathasaigh & Chris Newman
Máire who plays Irish Harp is promoted as Ireland’s most important and influential traditional musician. She has developed a variety of new techniques which together with the superb guitar playing of Chris Newman produces a music that is both haunting and compelling. This promises to be a very special night.
