  2. KEN NICOL will now be performing as Gareth Dunlop has been called away to Hollywood, CA! Ken Nicol makes his debut performance for JonnoPromotions on Sunday 28th September, 2014, at Jabberwocky. Ken Nicol is a gui­tarist, singer, song­writer and pro­ducer from Pre­ston, in Eng­land. His music cov­ers the spec­trum from blues to rock, and effort­lessly takes in folk, jazz, rag­time, bal­lads and more along the way. Ralph McTell - “Ken Nicol is a con­sum­mate musi­cian. A gui­tarist of broad scope, a sen­si­tive singer and an intel­li­gent writer of songs with stir­ring melodies. A musi­cal paragon.” Maddy Prior - “It’s dif­fi­cult for me to imag­ine a more tal­ented all rounder than Ken; both as singer and guitarist.” Ash­ley Hutchings - “Prodi­giously talented.” Ken was a mem­ber of the leg­endary Albion Band from 1997 until Sep­tem­ber 2001 when he left in order to spend more time on other projects. In Decem­ber 2002, he suc­cess­fully joined forces with Steel­eye Span, work­ing with the band for eight years, most recently on their 2009 40th Anniver­sary Tour, vis­it­ing the USA and Aus­tralia. Dur­ing his time with Steel­eye he recorded four albums with the band: ‘They Called Her Baby­lon’, ‘Win­ter’, ‘Bloody Men’ and ‘Cogs, Wheels and Lovers’. Ken left the band in 2010. As well as mak­ing and pro­duc­ing music, Ken has also worked with gui­tar mak­ers Fylde gui­tars to develop the Ken Nicol Sig­na­ture gui­tar. Beau­ti­fully con­structed from cedar and rose­wood, its incred­i­ble sound led to Acoustic Mag­a­zine giv­ing this gui­tar an unprece­dented 99% rating. When he’s not tour­ing or writ­ing, he can be found pro­duc­ing projects of his own and other artists at his MVS Stu­dios in Pre­ston. Guest support from the brilliantly talented Anna Goldsmith. £15 tickets are available from Jabberwocky and also online at http://www.eTickets.im/JP 7pm doors, 8pm show Supported by Arts Council - Isle of Man and Island of Culture 2014 Tickets £15.00 from Jabberwocky and online at http://www.eTickets.im/jp

  6. Nu / anti-folk artist and winner of Acoustic Magazines's UK singer-songwriter competition. His songs are instantly accessible, everyman tales of life, love and everything else in between. Played in a folk-ish style with occasional use of the guitar as a percussive tool, as well as some two handed venturing around the fretboard, Gaz's simple yet poignant songwriting captures the imagination of the listener. "Great songs and solid playing... A highly promising album from a talent to watch." Acoustic Magazine "There's a certain charming Billy Bragg-esque quality to these everyman tales... a gem of an EP!" (8/10) Greg Thomas, Rock City "Gaz has an honesty and charm about his performance which is seldom seen amongst his contemporaries." Will Walder, BBC Wiltshire Introducing "You really should do yourself the favour of checking out Gaz's music." Dave Franklin, Green Man Music "One of the most passionate singer/songwriters I've ever seen." Blues Matters magazine https://www.facebook.com/gazbrookfieldmusic Guest support act Jeff Jepson Show 8pm Tickets are £15 and now available on www.eTickets.im/jp and also available in hard copy from Jabberwocky. Biography Gaz Brookfield is a solo acoustic musician based in Bristol. His songs are instantly accessible every-man tales of life, love and everything else in between. Since the start of his solo career Gaz has had the pleasure of gigging and/or touring with Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, The Levellers, The Ataris, Mike Herrera (MXPX), Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife), Jonah Matranga, I Am Kloot, Miles Hunt, Dodgy, Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun, Dave McPherson and many more. He recently secured an endorsement deal with Godin/Seagull guitars. In 2010 he won Acoustic Magazine's Singer Songwriter of the year competition, earning him, among other prizes, a slot on the Big Top stage at the Beautiful Days festival. This is where JonnoPromotions first saw Gaz play and led to loads of other festival appearances over that summer, and bookings for even more in 2011 and 2012, firmly cementing him as a regular on the UK festival circuit. Gaz recently toured the UK's O2 Academies with The Levellers, where he broke all the venue records for numbers of albums sold by a support act every night (upwards of 60 albums sold per night). This secured him yet more tour dates with them in Europe in May 2013 and the UK in June 2013. With over 800 gigs under his belt to date, he continues to tirelessly tour the UK, proving that the "journeyman" title is more than a simple metaphor. His albums "Trial & Error", "Live from the west end of the M4 corridor" and "Tell It To The Beer" are available on CD and online through iTunes, 7Digital & Amazon.
  7. "There are only two people in art that matter. There's the creative individual and the person experiencing it. Everything else is an artificial filter. This a way for me to share my work with you without any filters whatsoever." - Otis Gibbs Otis Gibbs is a man in search of an honest experience. Gibbs is often referred to as a folk artist, but that is a simplistic way to describe a man who has planted over 7,000 trees, slept in hobo jungles, walked with nomadic shepherds in Romania, was a fifth grade yo-yo champion and once wrestled a bear (and lost). Otis has played countless, theatres, festivals, bars and house concerts and has managed to carve out a living, while remaining happily independent. Much of his work concentrates on the world ignored by pop culture. Sometimes forgotten, obsolete, or simply marginalized, it is a world that doesn’t fit into a twenty-second sound bite, or talking point. Otis has spent the last fifteen years traveling across America and abroad documenting this world, and has a story to share about each stop along the way. Some videos here http://tinyurl.com/Otis-Gibbs-JonnoPromo-YouTube "when it comes to song craft and true emotion, Gibbs is up there with the best of them ... an excellent songwriter and singer – with a voice like honeyed bourbon – he is a consummate showman in the old-fashioned sense of the word. His between song patter is as much part of the show as the tunes: Gibbs gives his music context by sharing his tales of growing up, the working life and the loves and losses inherent in life ... Gibbs knows how to pierce to the heart" James Meredith http://www.culturenorthernireland.org/ "Harder Than Hammered Hell" is Otis Gibbs’ sixth album. It’s also the fourth release by Wanamaker Recording Company, the East Nashville based independent label he started in 2008 with long time partner Amy Lashley. The album title was inspired by experiences Otis had when he worked as a tree-planter in Indiana. Much of what he learned came from a seventy-year-old friend/co-worker. The man would describe ground that is too hard to dig as, “harder than hammered hell.” He would also use the phrase when referring to a difficult job, or a particularly tough person. Otis found it a fitting metaphor for the difficulties of leading a creative life When asked about his approach to making records Otis replied, “I’m silly enough to believe that I’m the world’s foremost authority on what an Otis Gibbs record should sound like. I tend to enjoy stripped down arrangements that highlight the song and the vocal.” There is a feeling of strength and perseverance that resonates throughout his work and his lyrics often speaks of accepting the harsh realities of life without giving into them. Below are some of the lyrics from tracks on "Harder Than Hammered Hell" “Somewhere outside the vacant world two fools stare fate in the eye, singing oh you’ll never take us alive.” -Broke And Restless “When the suffering world is about to uncurl and reaches up and under your skin, you might sit there alone, but you’re about to be thrown into a box you never could fit in, we were made to break.” - Made To Break Don’t Worry Kid - recalls childhood feelings of not fitting in. “I wish that more people would be honest with kids and let them know that there’s nothing wrong with feeling different. Any sane person would feel out of place in a society that idolizes celebrities and trash culture while catering to short attention spans. The good news is they’re not alone and it does get better.” “Don’t worry kid you know it’s gonna get better than this there’s nothing wrong with you that you can’t work out we’re all filled with doubt, don’t worry kid.” - Don’t Worry Kid Big Whiskers was inspired by a childhood memory. In 1966, the World Record Flathead Catfish (79lb 8oz) was caught out of White River near Gibbs’ childhood home. Otis fished that same river countless times and heard many stories of huge catfish spotted there. Otis asked his friend, Adam Carroll to help him finish a song based on some of these tall tales. Gibbs and Carroll met up at a rundown hotel outside of Austin, Texas and finished the song in an afternoon. Otis currently resides in East Nashville with his partner Amy Lashley. Billy Bragg included Gibbs' song "The Peoples Day" in a list of "Top Five Songs with Something to Say", published in the Wall Street Journal. Andy Gill of the The Independent wrote that there is a "authenticity and dedication in Gibbs' delivery which is somehow cleansing in its purity". Come and see this singer songwriter who has been compared to Woody Guthrie, Steve Earle and Bruce Springsteen. Tickets £15 from http://www.eTickets.im/JP Available now in hard copy from Jabberwocky. http://otisgibbs.com/ And as Otis often says, "Thanks for giving a damn!"
