ALAW @ CENTENARY CENTRE
Mar 3 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Oli Wilson-Dickson – fiddle
Dylan Fowler – guitar
Jamie Smith – accordion

ALAW combines the craftsmanship of three leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion – the traditional music of Wales. Whether unearthing rare gems or reimagining a well loved melody they treat their music with a deftness and sensitivity that is thoroughly absorbing. Combined with powerful song writing and original tunes, this makes for a musical experience that will stay with the listener long after the concert has ended.
Oli and Jamie will be well known to Manx audiences through their performances with Jamie Smith’s Mabon. Between the three of them they have performed with Richard Thompson, Barrule, The Devil’s Violin, Ian McMillan and more. From stirring songs to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.

Holy Moly and The Crackers @ Centenary Centre
Mar 10 @ 8:00 pm – 10:15 pm

2017 was a big year for the Holy Moly & The Crackers: the ever-evolving gypsy-folk-rock band released their new album ‘Salem’ in July 2017 on their own label, Pink Lane Records (in association with Kartel Music Group and Wipe Out Publishing). The album received acclaimed reviews from Clash Magazine, R2 Magazine, Folk Radio UK, God Is In The TV Zine, The Crack, No Depression (U.S.), Blown Speaker (U.S.) to name but a few.

Over the course of the album campaign HMATC toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country, and made successful debuts in The Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy as well as continuing their success on the festival circuit with performances at Boomtown Fair, Bestival, Camp Bestival, amongst others.

‘Salem’s lead single, the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane’, was included on major Spotify playlists: New Noise, Fresh Finds and #WCE-Woman Crush Everyday. The band also had significant sync success, with ‘Cold Comfort Lane’ used by E4, BT Vision, Capital One and Ultimate Ears.

It is her last afternoon in employment. In the staff room she reflects on her life, her days in the WAAFS on the Isle of Man with her best friend, Inky, and offers her advice to those staying behind. No one is listening.

John Miller and Grant Dermody (plus special guests Blue John and Papa Cass) @ Centenary Centre, Peel
Jul 27 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Blue John Media is delighted to bring the incredible world-renowned US blues and roots music musicians John Miller (guitar/vocals) and Grant Dermody (harmonica/vocals) to the Isle of Man. This show at the Centenary Centre is only one of two shows they are performing together in the British Isles before teaching guitar and harmonica at Blues Week, in Gloucester, UK. 

In addition to being a phenomenal musician and recording artist, John Miller has an incredible reputation as a music tutor and has presented a number of tuition DVDs for Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop on the music of several country blues guitar legends including Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten and Furry Lewis (to name but a few).

The late great fingerpicking hero John Fahey described John as ‘just brilliant’ and fellow fingerpicking legend Duck Baker said: “This is not the boy on the magazine cover but the guy the pros admire and cop licks from (I can attest to this).”

Grant Dermody is a harmonica master who has made amazing solo albums, trio albums with John Miller and Orville Johnson and has recorded and performed with other musical giants.

Among those has been Eric Bibb, who describes Grant as “One of the greatest blues and roots harmonica players around. His playing reaches deep into the well of tradition and at the same time takes the music to exciting new places with a very personal sound. Working with him in the studio and on the stage is always a pleasure.”

Dirk Powell said about him: “Grant Dermody plays the harmonica with power that is equally effective and evocative whether held in reserve or allowed to wail to its fullest and wildest degree. His musical voice, both through the instrument and singing itself, reunited forms and feels that are not-so-distant cousins into one wide and calmly flowing stream.”

Grant, like John, is a master teacher too and blues and roots musicians around the world have learned directly from them at workshops, including the popular Euroblues Promotions’ Blues Week event in the UK.

Tickets are available from Celtic Gold, Peel, Shakti Man, Ramsey, online at www.etickets.im/bjm or by ringing John Gregory on 204320 or email him at bluejohnmedia@hotmail.co.uk
