Barley Mow Bonsall……Fully Licenced To Party!

The Barley Mow turns into a rural cabaret club come the weekend….we punch well above our weight with the quality of our entertainment for a little country pub, up a little country lane, in deepest darkest Derbyshire.  As a “one room” pub, people are incredulous and often ask “but where does the band set up??” The answer is that once the kitchen has been closed, we empty half the room of tables and chairs into it to make space for the band…and for your dancing! Instead of paying a fortune to sit at a stadium gig, miles away from the stage, you get a real live music experience here at the pub…up close and personal with amazing performers…and what’s more, its completely free, ’cause fun don’t cost a thing here at the Barley Mow. There is nothing more rewarding for us, than to see people of all ages, backgrounds, walks of life, dancing together and having a great time letting their hair down.

    Super talented Americana star Sam is back at the pub!

    Here are some of his latest reviews…

    “This track just demonstrates an amazing musical ability. The sustained brilliance of this playing is really something to behold. BOB HARRIS BBC Radio 2

    “Old before his years country-folk fellow who mixes intricate John Fahey finger-picking with confessional tales of dirty old Leeds – THE GUARDIAN

    “Serious Sam Barrett, from Addingham, splendid folk blues from the West Yorkshire hills. Gideon Coe (BBC Radio 6)

    “Such strong interplay between guitar and banjo, as well as the imagery of songs such as ‘From the Shoals to Montana’ and ‘Drive Your Way Home’ lend the album an authentic American flavour. Well worth checking out.” Americana UK

    Hailing from the green hills and valleys of ‘Lawrence country’. Some say the these folks have spent too long in the woods drinking moonshine! Mean and moody, they can break your heart (Bluebird, When I Fly) or skiffle you to submission with their octane fuelled drinking songs (White Jesus) . . . . it’s a kind of “UpNoirthicana” . . . . Psycho-skiiffle through to lo-fi Country/Folk sung by wood folks . . . If they are not singing hanging songs in the darkness of the trees, then they’re picking mushrooms or elderberries and sloes to make ruby red liquour to help them through the deep darkness of winter . . . Light a candle, sip some moonshine liquour and enjoy!
