Tickets here: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/515042/

Doors at 6, Music from 7, tickets are £6 in advance or on the door.

Labelled an an “indie pop wunderkind” by Avro Telvanni, Cambridge-born 22 year old Ellie Dixon creates self-produced, punchy bops with groove and a sense of humour. Producing from her bedroom studio, she has created her own brand of self-aware alt-pop described by She Wolf as “pop music with brains”.

Dixon fuses her bespoke blend of indie pop, rap, jazz and R&B as she expresses life lessons and frustrations through witty lyrics and ear worm melodies, oozing with her own personality, creativity and a love for the unconventional. Both her musical versatility and self-made, joyous visuals have been catching the ears and eyes of many, landing her Spotify editorial play-listing, radio play on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music, and backing from CD Baby.

In the last year Dixon has taken the online world by storm. Dedicating her time towards growing her online platform has seen her following sky rocket – in the last 6 months alone she has increased her following by 200k on Tik Tok and 12k on Instagram. She has been attracting attention for her highly engaging and personality-fuelled videos ranging from harmony layering to production challenges. She released her single ‘Space Out!’ in July 2020 which received overwhelming support and has now reached 225k Spotify streams. She then released her single ‘Sucker’ in February 2021 which has already had air play from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and featured on Spotify’s ‘New Pop UK’ playlist.

With Support from Gabby Rivers:
Gabby rivers is a 17 year old singer songwriter from Suffolk. Having released her debut EP ‘Headache’, Gabby has had the pleasure of headlining the inbetweeners stage at latitude on the opening night in 2019 and winning burySOUND 2019.

Despite being unmanaged and unsigned, the group achieved charting at Number One on both the Folk and Country Albums charts on Amazon with their debut EP, Making Tracks, being released on 5th June 2021.

Read a brilliant review by Hayley Clapperton of Grapevine Live here:
https://www.grapevinelive.co.uk/james-white

THE JOE KEELEY BAND

An Alt-Country Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Suffolk. After making his name as a solo artist, Joe Keeley teamed up with fellow Suffolk musicians to form The Joe Keeley Band. With Alex Raymond (drums), Jason Rampling (bass) and Jack Lawson (lead guitar) he has managed to create a sound that draws from country and rock influences.

Joe’s music is very lyric driven, drawing on his own experiences along with inspiration from his love of outlaw country stars creates a project which can be appreciated by music fans young and old. With fierce integrity and a strong reluctance to make anything that he doesn’t believe in, he is making bold moves in a very ‘headstrong’ way to keep country music alive and appreciated.

LUCY GRUBB

Lucy is a Singer Songerwiter focusing on Alternative Country, Folk & Americana. From a recent Rocking Magpie review: “The delightful title track WASTE MY TIME can’t decide whether it’s a Country song or Americana; but that’s hardly a problem as both are one and the same; and Lucy Grubb melts them together with easy going class. For a young woman of only 23, her voice has a weary, lived in quality which is just perfect for a song like this”

Elizabeth and Jameson + Support

Delicate Management is proud to present…
ELIZABETH AND JAMESON
with support from Belinda Gillett, EllY Tree, and Josie Edie May

TICKETS HERE: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/519448

ELIZABETH & JAMESON is an award-winning collaboration comprising two rising stars of the UK acoustic music scene. Hannah Elizabeth and Griff Jameson have joined forces to create an indie-folk sound which encompasses both their individual musical backgrounds. Hannah’s influences are firmly planted in traditional folk-roots, whilst in contrast Griff has formed his musical reputation within folk pop/rock genres. Together as a duo Elizabeth & Jameson arguably offer the best of both backgrounds; this is simplistic, classic song writing at its best – a stripped back harmony-driven sound with acoustic guitar, violin and exquisite harmony vocals.

As well as securing high-profile support slots on the UK folk/acoustic circuit the duo have built up a strong following after spending the last few years touring folk and acoustic clubs and venues across the UK. Their debut studio album, Northern Shores & Stories was officially released in May 2020 and has been receiving critical acclaim across the acoustic folk/roots community.

Recent festival highlights include greatly coveted invites to perform at Cambridge Folk Festival and the Great British Folk Festival. Elizabeth & Jameson were awarded the NMG Award for best Acoustic, Folk & Roots Act of 2019, and were proud to open four shows for Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra as part of their 2019 Autumn/Winter tour. This year, the duo will be touring their debut album extensively across the UK… and beyond!

“Impressive talents… will shine bright into the future”
FATEA Magazine

“Breathtaking storytelling and songwriting”

“The voices form a seductive combination”
The Sunday Times

She creates atmospheric, ethereal, vintage landscapes with her honest songs of love, nature and life and cites Nick Drake, Radiohead, The Sundays and Frightened Rabbit among her influences.

“She sings darkly and straight from the heart…wonderful…love it!” – Brian May
“When Belinda sings, the world stops turning.” – Dave Hammond, Cambridge 105 Radio
“Honest and personal without ever falling close to vulgar copy.” – B-Side Rock
“Beautiful” – Jeffrey Lewis

ELLY TREE are a 3 piece band, sometimes going out as a duo, playing original songs in acoustic/alt-folk/world style. Toe-tapping, spirit-lifting, acoustic songs whose lyrics boast dozens and dozens of literary and cultural references. Surely the only band in the history of the world to reference Hans Christian Andersen, Oliver Sacks, Mongol Hordes and a Van de Graaff generator within their ouevre!

JOSIE EDIE MAY is an opening act you really can’t afford to miss. Although barely out of her teens, she has already written the kind of emotionally-intelligent, well-crafted, life-affirming songs that are likely to be attracting lots of attention from record companies in the near future. Her superb lyrics often hint strongly at a wisdom beyond her years.

Doors at 1:30, music from 2:00.

Mark Morriss

Bury St Edmunds The Hunter Club, Sat, 13 Nov 2021 at 7:00pm
Green Mind Presents…..
Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who famously made his name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan, before temporarily disbanding in 2011.
After releasing Memory Muscle in 2008, Mark banded together The Mummys and hit the road. He spent the best part of that year touring Memory Muscle while The Bluetones took a short sabbatical, often with his bandmates in tow, either sharing touring duties or joining him in the studio for the odd overdub.
After returning to The Bluetones to record their A New Athens swan song, Mark re-focused his attention on his solo career. In 2013 he recorded A Flash of Darkness, raising the recording funds via a successful Pledge Music campaign. The album was then given a general release by Acid Jazz Records the following year, whilst Mark continued to tour both as a solo acoustic artist and with an ever changing line up behind him. The various members of The Magical Sex Band.
In the summer of 2015 Mark recorded and released The Taste of Mark Morriss for Acid Jazz. Intended as a companion to A Flash of Darkness, the album comprised a collection of cover versions of songs that had informed the writing of its predecessor.
At the same time as producing and touring his own solo material, Mark has produced Theme and Chapter music for the audio versions of David Walliams successful series of children’s books, from The Boy in the Dress right through to his latest, The Midnight Gang, all released on Harper Collins.
Since 2013 Mark has also been a member of Acid Jazz label-mate Matt Berry’s touring band The Maypoles. When in 2015 The Bluetones announced that they would be returning to play a series of anniversary shows it started to look like there was never going to be time to start work on solo record #4, but in December 2016 a new Pledge Music campaign was launched to raise a budget to do just that.

WHEN RIVERS MEET will play as a five-piece as a warm-up for their debut UK tour in Spring 2022.

They have recently won an astounding four awards at the UK Blues Awards 2021:

Blues Band Of The Year
Blues Album Of The Year
Emerging Blues Artist Of The Year
Most Inspirational Online Performance Of The Year

“The British husband-and-wife are heavy enough to get your attention and quirky enough to hold it, with songs that give you a kicking but leave a boot-print on your heart. It’s an album to ride shotgun with.” – Classic Rock Magazine

“Electrifying… it’s a great debut. 9/10” – Guitarist Magazine

“This is an album full of raw energy, that crackles, buzzing with power and passion.” – Blues In Britain

“Blimey, this is impressive.” – Powerplay Magazine

“This album is outstanding and When Rivers Meet must be very pleased with the way it has turned out. It is one of the best Blues Rock albums of the year…” – Fireworks Magazine

“It’s not often I give an album a nine out of ten but this is something quite startling. With eyeball-slicing slide guitar, Hammond interludes and Grace Bond’s fallen angel vocals, the energy absolutely blazes.” – Vive Le Rock

Since bursting on to the UK Blues scene with their debut record ‘The Uprising EP’ in April 2019 followed by their second EP ‘Innocence Of Youth’ in May 2020, Grace and Aaron have been going from strength to strength. The British husband and wife duo have an ever-growing online fan base and have gained the attention of Cerys Matthews’ The Blues Show on BBC Radio 2.

Their unique harmonic vocal-led approach to song writing, dirty electric guitar, slide resonator mandolin and fiddle create a unique distinctive and contemporary blues rock sound that echoes 1970s classic rock with hints of the 1930s blues that inspire them.

Before lockdown, the duo toured the UK in their self-converted VW camper with an impressive tour schedule. Since the lockdown, the duo live stream on Facebook every Saturday at 8pm GMT for their ‘Rock The Lockdown’ series attracting hundreds of thousands of views.

On November 20th, 2020, the duo released their long-awaited debut album ‘We Fly Free’, to critical acclaim from the UK radio and rock music magazine media.

Chris Kimsey, the Rolling Stones record producer praised the album saying that “The performances are exemplary, the sound is magnificent, the songs are gorgeous. I love the drama. I love everything.”

In October, WRM’s first single from the album, ‘Battleground’, was added to the main playlist on the UK’s leading classic rock radio station Planet Rock.
In late November, the band followed up with a second single, ‘Did I Break The Law’, that was played on BBC Radio 2’s The Rock Show with Johnnie Walker. The single was also played on Planet Rock throughout December 2020 and into January 2021.

The UK rock music press were unanimous by praising ‘We Fly Free’ as one of the most striking, refreshing, and impressive debut blues rock albums of 2020.

Classic Rock said of the band’s debut, “Wheel-spinning out of Dodge like Bonnie and Clyde on opener ‘Did I Break The Law’, Grace and Aaron Bond prove capable getaway drivers on a debut album that unfolds like a road movie,” while Blues in Britain described it as “A stunning album of pure alchemy.”

Vive Le Rock said that ‘We Fly Free’ was “urban blues with the brakes off,” and gave the album with a 9/10 rating, while Guitarist Magazine described at album as “electrifying, it’s a great debut.” Fireworks Magazine praised it as “One of the best blues rock albums of the year.”

On October 26th, ‘Battleground’ won “Tracks of the Week” on Classic Rock’s Louder Sound website, who described it as “Primal old-school blues (more John Lee Hooker than Stevie Ray Vaughan) – dressed up in biker leathers and wreathed in arthouse smoke.”

November 2020 saw two more accolades when WRM graced the magazine covers of Blues Matters and Blues in Britain featuring stylish photographs taken by one of the UK’s leading rock photographers, Rob Blackham.

Blues Rock Review voted ‘We Fly Free’ #9 in their Top 20 Albums of 2020 poll.

The album was also made Rock and Blues Muse’s “Top 20 Blues, Rock and Roots Albums of 2020,” alongside Joe Bonamassa, Larkin Poe, Walter Trout, Shemekia Copeland, The Allman Betts Band, Marcus King, Kirk Fletcher, Savoy Brown, Bernard Allison, and King King.
When Rivers Meet’s debut album cemented their name and signified a bold move in their trajectory that singled them out as innovative risk takers, willing to take their influences, and putting their own stamp over it.
After two years of hard work, everything came together. The WRM buzz was in full swing.

Jamie Dickson, the editor of Guitarist Magazine, was quick to catch on to this when he reviewed the debut album by saying, “It’s a tough job to make a new blues-based record that really arrests the listener’s attention, however, WRM’s sound is built of simple but powerful elements, handled with taste but delivered from the gut.”

The music magazine reviews continued to pour in. Adam Kennedy of HRH Magazine proclaimed, “For blues lovers, ‘We Fly Free’ is a purist’s paradise,” while Steve Swift at Powerplay Magazine said, “They may be a duo, but they make a big noise.”

Maverick Magazine said, “This is the start of what should be a hugely successful career, while RNR Magazine focussed on the album’s production standards by saying, “The use of authentic techniques, including tube tape echoes and reverbs, adds to the overall production, reproducing a splendid live, vintage sound that reinforces the appeal.”

When Rivers Meet released their third single ‘Walking On The Wire’ in early February 2021, the third single taken from the ‘We Fly Free’ album which was accompanied by a music video.

In Spring 2022, When Rivers Meet will embark on their debut UK tour as a five-piece. As already mentioned, this is a warm-up for that tour. Don’t miss your chance to see these incredible award winners!
