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.

    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.

    Matt Woosey’s time is now. His eighth studio album, Desiderata, captures the most daring and progressive music of his career. His acclaimed solo shows dart between folk, roots, ambient and electronica. He’s an artist who slips the creative straightjacket of the modern industry, a trailblazer with no reverse gear, a performer who drags the acoustic guitar kicking and screaming into fresh relevance. “You’ve got to keep progressing,” says the Malvern-based singer-songwriter. “Like John Martyn. Like Robert Plant. Like Radiohead…”

    “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.
