Three good gigs coming up "across the borderline" (Sussex!)



As many of you know, I'm a sucker for Celtic music (well I would be, living in Ireland....) and also bluegrass & Americana...  I've recently become aware of a fine Brighton based band called Barber, Taylor & Reed. 

They  play original acoustic folk and blues with bluegrass/ country/celtic flavours. As some of you on this mailing list live not too far from Arundel, Brighton or Brighton, I thought I'd share the following with you.....


Friday August 17th (4.00pm) Barber, Taylor & Reed  are playing at the Arundel Festival,.

On Thursday August 23rd (7.00pm) they're playing at the Angel Hotel in Midhurst - it's a ticketed event, with  a two-course barbecue as well as fine music!

On Sunday  September 16th (8.00pm) they're playing the prestigious Brighton venue The Komedia.

 
"Their new  CD Pilgrim's Postcard  is a combination to savour with critically observant lyrics, harmonies so close that not a gap shows, intricate arrangements and accomplished musicianship – buy it you’ll love it." Tim Carroll, "Folkworlds".

"Superb live performers." Broadstairs Folk Week 
 
"However you attempt to classify them, Barber & Taylor are a superb acoustic duo it’s that simple." 
Tim Carroll. 'Folkwords'
 
".......sound like the greats of harmony and duet singing; picture Townes Van Zandt and Emmylou Harris or even Johnny Cash and June Carter and you have a fair idea of how these guys sound." 
Maverick Magazine. 
 
"BARBER, TAYLOR & REED delivered a world-class mixture of genre-spanning fine musicianship and vocal harmonies! Kevin Barber & Mark Taylor are long-standing friends of the Willows, and with the addition of Amy Reed on fiddle, their already amazing brand of acoustic roots and Americana has been kicked up to a whole new level!"
