Music Acts 2019
Half Cut and Friends
(Friday evening only)
Now a firm Crick favourite, local band Half Cut and Friends will be playing on Friday evening. They are well known to the locals of Crick, and popular with the crowd in the marina. The singer/songwriters will be bringing their own unique blend of canal-boat boogie, rhythm and blues to the boat show.
The Two Hats Blues Band
(Saturday & Sunday)
The Two Hats Blues Band are from Bolton, Lancashire. They play roots blues and ragtime music. They use slide guitar, harmonica, double bass, drums, mandolin and whooping three part harmony to get the people bouncing.
(Saturday & Sunday)
From performing at Nelson Mandela's 90th Birthday celebration to supporting James Blunt on his debut tour in South Africa, singer songwriter Josie Field has no intention of slowing down. Her signature sound is a potent mix of lyricism and fire, heart-felt issues and tender constructions. She has a unique soulful blues infused voice and vocal delivery style that sets her apart.
Fast becoming a Crick regular, Murphy’s Marbles will return again with their unique style of Celtic-based music that blends the traditional with the contemporary. Added to this is a selection of their own material augmented with hilarious anecdotes and stories. The Sunday night performance will include the return of their female member Cath Ralph, an exceptional vocalist who not only gives an added dimension to the excellent harmonies, she also delivers stunning renditions in her own right.
Emerging young singer/song-writing talent from Nottingham, Tilly Greentree is already creating a minor stir within the music industry, and has just signed to hip new UK based record label and streaming platform BNDR. Tilly’s songwriting displays a maturity well beyond her years, stylistically drawing on the lounge jazz, pop, soul and country genres - all complemented by her hauntingly beautifully voice.
Based in Mansfield, Nottingham, a part of the country known for its heritage, including mining & Robin Hood, but most of all its people. The music they make reflects where they come from - with rich melodies and songs that will leave you wanting more. Song makers of the highest calibre. Both Jim & Rob have spent many years playing all different types of music as individuals, but the combination of those years together has come to produce a truly unique blend of music.
Bon Accord will bring French-style accordion music and latin numbers, alongside renditions of some familiar tunes by such artists as Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg, to the Show.
(Saturday and Sunday)
You don't get much more local than Crick-based Blues-acoustic musician/guitarist Derrick Meyer, regular performer at The Wheatsheaf Pub. A veteran of Crick Boat Show as part of Half Cut’s warm-up act in previous years, this year we’re delighted to have Derrick performing for us independently.
The Heron Brothers / The Covers Brothers
Paul and Steven Herron, being actual brothers, have played and sang together for a lifetime and hail from the most north eastern borders of England. Their 2018 album 'The Last One's Left' is all about classical pop music, playing Monday at 12:30pm.
The brothers will also do a separate set as 'The Covers Brothers' at 14:30pm. Two guitars, two voices, no tricks, just great renditions of music from the likes of The Beatles/Everly Brothers/Crowded House/David Bowie/The Strokes/Simon and Garfunkel, and many more.
Janet, Marie-Therese and Gwen have been performing together for only a relatively short time but bring to you an eclectic mix from Jazz to pop including a few original songs. With perfect harmonies this dynamic sassy trio make it their mission to entertain!
