Red Dirt Skinners

March 24 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall,
Chidham Lane/A259, Chidham, United Kingdom

Crayon Angels were to have performed a short 20-minute set prior to Red Dirt Skinners performance but sadly, due to an impending hospital appointment, this has had to be postponed. Red Dirt Skinners are now based in Ontario and we’re delighted that they’re coming back to Chidham where they were so enthusiastically received last year.  Sara’s soulful sax-playing contrasts wonderfully with the web that guitarist Rob weaves.  It’s a style which lends itself to jazz, country, soul, and the best rock…

John Reischman & The Jaybirds

May 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall,
Chidham Lane/A259, Chidham, United Kingdom

Like the powerful mandolinist and composer at its helm, John Reischman and the Jaybirds fashion a stylish take on bluegrass that seamlessly blends original songs and instrumentals with Appalachian old-time music for a truly unique band sound. Now in their 20th year, with seven acclaimed albums and two Juno nominations, the Jaybirds are simultaneously innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned and 21st-century contemporary.
