After our wonderful and well attended Old School House gig with Gilmore and Roberts, Beggars Bridge and The Zoe Bottomley Experience, we are pleased to announce and invite you to our next Wednesday night gig at the Trades Club Barnsley on the 7th February. Our guest that night is Scott Wainwright making his first appearance at the club. Support will come from me Dave Bottomley performing some numbers from my new solo acoustic blues set. A limited number of floor spots are also available.
Yorkshire based musician and performing artist Scott Wainwright has been a regular feature on his local music scene for the last ten years, offering audiences an energetic and eclectic take on blues, folk and gospel music.
He has released numerous albums; EP’s and singles over the years, which have ranged in style from ‘Electric Blues and Hip Hop’ fusions (Every Man Has His Critics) to solo instrumental guitar workouts (What We Cannot Hold). In between these releases there have been regular bouts of ‘Lo-Fi’ folk (All That Glitters is Not Gold) and the odd dabbling as a singer songwriter (Whisper’s from a Kind River), but for now, our hero seems to have settled on acoustic blues (Bric A Brac Blues) and the more experimental style country blues of his latest offering ‘Strangers Here’.
All of his albums evoke a wide range of emotions and feelings from his listeners, as he tackles subjects such as love, life, death, loss, hope and the possibility of being ‘wrong’ about everything.
Scott plays extensive shows all over the place, both as a solo performer and as part of various duos and bands. Solo performances see Scott using Voice, Guitar, Harmonica, Foot Stomps and occasional Banjo to entertain and bewilder his audiences. Every performance comes with and element of homespun humor.
Look forward to seeing you there. Please come and support live music in Barnsley. If people don’t turn out we will lose it. (Sorry for the glum note but it is true).
All the best
Dave Bottomley on behalf of
Barnsley Folk Club
