We are often asked to give presentations to other areas, projects and community forums on what we are about here is one that was prepared earlier in admittedly more optimistic times about the next step.... but it still rings true we welcome as many people to help us build this because, building or no building, this year next year whenever - it is going to be happening if we have to make the bricks ourselves ...

Sunday Afternoon Acoustic

November 12, 2017, 1:30pm - November 12, 2017, 10:30am

Enjoy a Sunday afternoon listening to some great music from 3 different acts in a wonderful intimate venue. Over from Sweden touring the UK are duo Perfect Blue Sky, exquisite guitarist Saiichi Sugiyama and returning local favourites QuietWish Perfect Blue Sky is a multinational collaboration between Swedish folk/metal artist, Pontus (Pna) Andersson, and Australian rock singer and guitarist, Jane Kitto. With the uninhibited vibes of 60s/70s psychedelic classic rock, the album is filled with imagination and spirit. Following the success of their recent UK radio tour in May, Perfect Blue Sky has a nationwide UK tour planned for November 2017 with ‘Astronaut’ the feel-good new single released on 20th October, and taken from the new album, The Eye of Tilos. The video was filmed in July by award winning fine arts photographer Mikaela Holmberg in Finland. Andersson and Kitto formed Perfect Blue Sky in 2014, drawing together a wealth of well-known guest-musicians who share a love of classic rock. The album features Jerry Donahue (guitarist for The Proclaimers and Fairport Convention) and Dave Getz (Big Brother And The Holding Company drummer). Also in the line-up is Frenchman Frank Bessard (Joe Satriani, Stanley Clarke) on drums, and Australian keyboardist Danny Oakhill, Also newcomer is British viola player Lewis Parsons. www.perfectbluesky.net Saiichi Sugiyama is a British-based guitarist, singer and composer, best known for his writing and performing collaborations with Pete Brown, the lyricist for Cream since 2002 to date. His previous bands in 1990s featured Mike Casswell and Phil Williams of Walk on Fire, Andy Smith of Hot Chocolate, Zoot Money, Boz Burrell of Bad Company, John Cook of Rory Gallagher band as well as the guitarist, Paul Wassif. Sugiyama's self-published studio albums in 2000s featured Clem Clempson of Colosseum, Pete Brown (who co-wrote and co-produced the albums), Zoot Money and Ben Matthews of Thunder. His guitar style has more than a passing resemblance to that of Peter Green and has a vibrato technique similar that of Paul Kossoff. Quiet Wish are a band from Surrey, UK playing alt-rock, electronic trip-hop, ambient progressive, floyd-esqe original music that reflects current environmental and humanitarian concerns. The music takes you on a journey; a listening experience of themes and emotions that are interwoven and connected though the use of political poetic imagery both subtle and sometimes direct.
