A new show featuring The Spikedrivers, Fran McGillivray and Mike Burke.

Blues and gospel, despite their obvious differences, have always been linked. So many blues musicians we know and love spent their early years singing in church. We would never have had the presence, power and passion of Son House, Muddy Waters or Ma Rainy “mother of the blues” without these foundations. And of course, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who throughout her career could handle both sides with flair, influencing music far beyond gospel and blues becoming known as “the original soul sister” and “the godmother of rock and roll”.

Inspired by all these rich influences, Ben Tyzack, Constance Redgrave & Maurice McElroy from the Spikedrivers with Fran McGillivray and Mike Burke present Saints & Sinners, a concert exploring the space and harmony between spiritual music and ‘the devil’s blues’.

Five voices, a multitude of guitars, percussion & even some homemade instruments create a world of soul, stories and soundscapes.

Join us for a foot-stomping, gut-wrenching, heart-soaring journey from the cross to the crossroads .and all points in-between

Doors open 8.00 pm for an 8.30 pm start.
