Howlin Mat & Blues John – Blues Night Double Bill!

The Atholl Room at the Centenary Centre will play host to two blues musicians – Howlin’ Mat and John Gregory aka Blue John – as part of their three-date tour of the Isle of Man.
Howlin’ Mat is one of the hardest working solo acts around both in the UK and Europe – and he’s even played in the Arctic Circle four times!
Mat is a nationally acclaimed slide guitarist and cites Elmore James and Mississippi Fred McDowell amongst his major influences. No Howlin’ Mat show would be complete without his trademark cigar box guitar for which he has had compliments from the likes of John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Mud Morganfield (son of Muddy Waters).
Mat is also a skilled story-teller. He intertwines tales of life on the road with his music to create an intimate and unique experience for each audience. This is no fancy fair with the rough edges all polished and made squeaky clean but the real raw roots blues deal.
 
Meanwhile at this concert John Gregory will be celebrating 25 years of playing the guitar and 10 years of teaching it. The past few years have been particularly eventful –  he has toured the British Isles with top US blues musicians Ari Eisinger, the Erin Harpe Country Blues Duo and Toby Walker, performed many gigs with Mississippi John Hurt biographer Dr Phil, played his musical hero Big Bill Broonzy’s guitar in Chicago, performed at the world-famous Bitter End club in New York, appeared at venues in Texas, and opened for many world-renowned blues, jazz and roots musicians such as Martin Taylor, Duck Baker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Nine Below Zero, Joe Filisko and Eric Noden, Michael Messer, John Miller and Grant Dermody and more.

Atholl Room Concerts (Free entry)



A Bunch of Amateurs – new date

In their 90th year The Legion Players is delighted to present ‘A Bunch of Amateurs’ – a play by Ian Hislop (Spitting Image fame) and Nick Newman.

Fading American Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England, desperate to boost his flagging career. His plan – to play the iconic King Lear at Stratford. He should have checked the map. This Stratford is not the birthplace of The Bard, but a sleepy village in Suffolk. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. When monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity collide with enthusiastic am-dram thespians, it is pure drama….

This amateur production of “A Bunch of Amateurs” is presented by arrangement with

Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

Suitable for 15 years old and over
