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.

Expect to dance and smile 🙂

    The Natterjacks are an indie folk duo hailing from the historic market town of Chesterfield in Derbyshire. They 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. Who began playing together in the winter of 2010 after being friends at school for a number of years and as time progressed, so did the 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 their 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, they are now set to release a second album ‘White Peak’, with tracks from this album getting a debut national radio play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

    Raindogs play an eclectic mix of covers and originals; uplifting, melodious and melancholic in equal measure. Sublime vocals supported by a heady mix of drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars and saxophone all topped off with sumptuous three part harmonies and an occasional glockenspiel solo. From Neil Young to Nick Cave, from Tom Waits to The Doors, from Elbow to The Beatles, there’s something for everyone, especially if they like to stray off the beaten track…
