Thursday, November 1st 2018 Saints & Sinners feat. The Spikedrivers, Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke Saints & Sinners feat. The Spikedrivers, Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke in Farnham The Cellar Bar, Farnham Maltings
Doors: 8:00pm. Admission: £14. Age restrictions: All Ages. Box office: 01252 793430. Address: Bridge Sq, GU9 7QR.
We’re excited to bring you 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

Thursday, November 22nd 2018 Tons of Sobs Tons of Sobs in Farnham The Cellar Bar, Farnham Maltings
Doors: 8:15pm. Admission: £14. Age restrictions: All Ages. Box office: 01252 793430. Address: Bridge Sq, GU9 7QR.
When Andy Billups (Hamsters) and Ray Brown (Illegal Eagles) were asked if they’d like to perform at a Memorial gig in Southend earlier this year, Ray said he rather fancied singing a few Free numbers… but as a duo?!! After calls to fellow Free fans Al and Tony, a rehearsal was arranged and a half dozen numbers duly prepared. The chaps clicked in an instant… the rest, as they say, is history!
Andy Billups was, with the exception of a brief spell, the bass player with The Hamsters throughout their twenty-five year reign. Essentially a guitarist, Andy credits Andy Frazer as the single one individual that made him ‘sit up’ to the role of the bass player in his late teens. As another huge fan of the band Free, Andy completes this dynamic ensemble that is Tons of Sobs.

Aynsley Lister Band Christmas Special!
When explosive natural ability collides with fiery, emotionally charged compositions, the result is Aynsley Lister; an incredible guitarist whose brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary song writing fuelled with the kind of heart and soul that’s missing from so much modern music. Whether passionately writing and recording his own material or mesmerizing audiences at his live shows, one thing is abundantly clear: music is hard-wired to his DNA and flows from his fingertips like sonic bolts of lightning. With over 86,000 albums sold, lashings of critical acclaim and years of high profile touring, Lister’s resumé speaks for itself and firmly secures his position as a leading light in the resurgence of British blues-infused music. Aynsley Lister’s shows at The Maltings are always a sell-out. Not surprising given his superb guitar playing, excellent vocals, great choice of material and top band!
‘An absolute master class in the art of guitar playing with immense touch, technique and tone.’ – Nigel Foster.
‘Superb’ – The Times
