Galley BeggarGalley Beggar are a great modern folk-rock band who are very well-known on the trad folk circuit in London and the South of England, but are still largely undiscovered by the mainstream music media. This show is rare opportunity to catch them in the North and anyone with an interest in acts like The Unthanks, The Staves, Trembling Bells will love them. Bringing diverse musical tastes to the band, all six members of Galley Beggar converge on the folk fusion of the late 1960s and early 1970s - Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Steeleye Span, Trees, and many lesser known groups whose musicianship was largely overlooked in a rapidly changing music scene. What goes around, it seems, comes around. At the time of writing, Galley Beggar's Facebook page shows over 12,000 likes from fans across the world as testament to the band's crossover appeal at home and abroad. By exploring and expanding the acid folk genre, they continue to win music fans of all ages. Amongst these fans is psych rock aficionado and doom metal veteran Lee Dorrian, who signed Galley Beggar to his label Rise Above Records in 2014 - and put them together with analogue recording wizard Liam Watson (best known for his work on the White Stripes' 2003 album Elephant) at his famous studio, Toe Rag. This resulted in a standout, harder-edged album 'Silence and Tears' which revealed a band that draws on deep roots to send its tendrils ever outwards into new sonic spaces. This success led Galley Beggar back to Toe Rag to record new album 'Heathen Hymns' due for release on Rise Above in April 2017. Maria Fowler's beautiful cut-glass vocals and the rest of the band's accomplished playing mark Galley Beggar as a stand-out act. One Sided Horse (solo) One Sided Horse started life in 2013 when Mark Whiteside, the singer/drummer with Evil Blizzard decided to swop drums for guitar and move to the front of the stage.After buying a guitar and a chord book he wrote a set of simple songs that formed his first solo CD. A chance meeting with Embrace bass player Steve Firth opened up his songs to a wider audience and it was decided they would record a new album featuring the rest of his band.Since recording the album he has played a series of shows in the UK both with Embrace and solo.Later this year OSH will go out on tour showcasing songs from his debut album that should see a release in the autumn of 2017.www.onesidedhorse.comFacebook - @One Sided Horse
