    “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.

    Thursday
    - 8pm -

    Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.

    Saturday
    - 9pm -

    We are The Natterjacks, an indie folk duo hailing from the historic market town of Chesterfield in Derbyshire. We set out with our guitar and banjo, accompanied by the forceful thud of a kick drum and smatter of tambourine to create an energetic live atmosphere with sing-along choruses and foot stomping, banjo filled breakdowns.

    The duo consists of Freddie Bingham & Mark Evans. We began playing together in the winter of 2010 after being friends at school for a number of years and as time progressed, so did our music, leading to the formation of “The Natterjacks” with influnces from Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, The Avett Brothers, Bombay Bicycle Club and many more.

    Following our debut album, “Highlands” and our following EP, “In The Bark”, which led to slots on some top festivals including a set for BBC Introducing at Derbyshire’s Y Not Festival, we are now set to release our second album ‘White Peak’, with tracks from this album getting us our debut national radio play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

Appearing with Magic Car on record have been guests Gareth Bailey, Rick Kemp, Ross McDougall, Stevie Otter and Jim Walker.

  • The Most Ugly Child

    Saturday
    - 9pm -

    Notts Americana Superstar and Barley Mow favorites are back at the pub, bringing us their special brand of stomping and a’ hollering… we love to dance to this band!

    Latest album had rave reviews…here it is..

    “The first adjective that comes to mind when listening to The Most Ugly Child’s debut LP is simply “big”. The group is nominally a six-piece but with guest appearances that include a whole freaking brass band, they can make much more noise than their promo shots would suggest. And quite enjoyable noise it is too. Firstly, you have the songwriting, singing style, and nostalgic pedal steel tones that evoke the classic country of Buck Owens and George Jones. Adding to the controlled chaos is the earthy acoustic grit of dobro, banjo, and smashing fiddle breaks. Of course, one singer would not be enough for a band so clearly bent on laying more tracks, so leads and harmonies are traded by Daniel Wright and Stevie-Leigh Goodison”

    This is a laugh-out-loud comedy that’s also big on heart – a hilarious take on modern male friendship, bonding and brotherhood, set in rural Ireland bachelor party weekend takes some unexpected detours in this hilarious and heartfelt Irish comedy, about a foppish groom-to-be (Hugh O’Conor) who reluctantly agrees to go on a camping trip before his nuptials. But when his fiancee’s alpha-male brother, nicknamed “The Machine,” unexpectedly turns up, all concepts of masculinity are challenged – and a leisurely weekend in the great outdoors takes a turn for the worse.

    - 9pm -

    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!
