9:00 pm Sidetracked

Members, Nigel Nichols (drums), Paddy Gearman (bass) and Mick Paine (guitar/vocals) all share a love of roots music, (blues, soul, early rock’n’roll, rockabilly, swing and country) which is reflected in the band’s repertoire. Playing songs and instrumentals by artists such as Freddie King, Jimmy McCracklin, Earl Hooker and contemporary artists such as Junior Watson, JD McPherson and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, the band endeavours to stay true to the feel and soul of the original recordings.
