SHERBURN BARTLEY SANDERS

£12.50 FEBRUARY 5th 2022

Click here to buy tickets…..

Following a chance meeting at Whitby Folk Festival in 1993, Chris Sherburn (concertina) and Denny
Bartley (vocals and guitar) have been bringing their unique sound to audiences across Europe and
America, creating one of folk music’s most enduring partnerships. Their obvious rapport made them
one of the busiest acts on the folk scene, both as a duo and with their well-loved trio/quartet Last
Night’s Fun. Their soul-stirring songs, exhilarating tunes and quick-witted banter ensures that no two
concerts are ever the same.
In 2016 Chris and Denny joined forces with Emily Sanders (fiddle/viola and vocals) and have since
become a well-established trio, for the first time blending vocal harmonies and strings to underpin
Chris and Denny’s unique sound, as well as providing a female lead vocal for some songs, and
bringing a repertoire of English folk songs to complement the band’s more Celtic and traditional roots.
Emily was a founder member of the acclaimed trio Isambarde. She has also toured with Merrymouth
(Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene’s acoustic band) and regularly appears with Pete Morton and
Chris Parkinson.
Their latest album BEGUILE is the first to feature Chris, Denny and Emily together, and also has
some stellar guest performances from Martin Simpson and Andy Seward (Kate Rusby Band).

Hailing from Barnsley Rock City, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission! Determined to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive, they have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, ukulele, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboards and kazoo. To complete their squeaky-clean image, estranged brothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of sexy knitwear.

Since forming in 2006, the brothers Doonican have played over 1000 anarchic, side-splitting shows and have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury Festival. They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “Tarnlife”, “The Lady In Greggs”, “Nandos”, “Fight For Your Pint”, “Bono Bloody Bono”, “Since You’ve Been Ron”, “She’s From Dodworth”, “Walking In Manp**s” and “If I Could Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.

 Without doubt one of the very best bands ever to have appeared on the Shire Hall stage and they are in some illustrious company believe me…

Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene in the UK, they power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style.

Primarily, they are influenced by 1940’s and 1950’s R&B. In particular, Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown but have adopted a harder and more aggressive approach, synonymous with modern blues artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Jools Holland and Mike Henderson which helps create their own high energy sound.

Over the last decade, The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK and European Rockin’ circuit, as well as the Blues scene.

They have toured extensively both in the UK and abroad, performing at festivals in Ireland, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Malta and Dubai.

Highlights include performing at festivals with artistes such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Sting, Tom Jones, Hugh Laurie, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Walter Trout, Eric Bibb, Albert Lee, Snake Davis and Dave Edmunds.

Now also touring with their Big Band project which consists of extra horns and pianist, The Revs are hitting the Festival circuit with this power house line up and big sound.

They have recorded five CDs to date containing a collection of Hot Rockin’ R&B tracks. Each CD captures the ‘rawness’ and sheer energy of the band, who like to give their performances a ‘hard-edged’ vibe!

  1. Hi Ian we used to get significant amounts of money in grants from the Arts Council which significantly subsided jazz in particular. We decided some five years ago that we would become self funding, we have been successful in that but we are no longer in a position to present shows that make significant losses as jazz ones often did.
