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.

    “If you get the chance to see Kris live, do whatever you have to, to be there. You will not be disappointed”. New Crawdaddy Blues Club

    During a career in music, spanning four decades, Kris has graced some of the world’s greatest stages and has played with many international bands and artists. These include The Godfathers, The Damned, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Adam Ant and Del Amitri.

    His guitar skills have always been admired, in whichever genre he has played. Now those skills are honed to perfection and they need to be. He has chosen a field where his playing is at it’s most exposed. A man, a guitar and sometimes a voice. No room for error and nowhere to hide. With largely an acoustic repertoire, a fair portion of that being instrumental, in the vein of John Fahey and Jack Rose, precision playing is expected and delivered.

    Kris took the decision to perform as a solo artist 11 years ago and has toured relentlessly, travelling the UK and Europe, earning a hard core following of loyal fans which is growing by the day. This is backed up by the success of his first three albums, “02/01/1978”, “Now Was The Time” and “No Ghosts In This House”, which all received great reviews from the music press, both at home and abroad. His fourth album ‘All Grown Up’ has just been released and is attracting the same positive interest as it’s predecessors.
