A new flavour to Thursday music - We have stunning acoustic and unplugged blues music here on the first Thursday of the month with Graham Bellinger, Terry 'The Bear' Burgin and friends.
Graham, Terry and friends will bring you a selection of Blues in the style of that 1960s American country blues trio Koerner, Ray and Glover, this night gets its name from their classic first album "Blues, Rags & Hollers." Like them we'll be approaching their traditional material with a mixture of reverence and fun!
There is no entry charge although there will be a raffle towards expenses for the chaps. Come and join us for an evening of first class entertainment.
We've got Cool Jazz with "Stan and His Getz" featuring Roger Harker on alto & tenor saxophone and eggs(?), Bob Mason on keyboards and Nigel Wright on double bass.
The trio plays a repertoire from such jazz composers as Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock as well as numbers from the "Great American Songbook" composers including Jerome Kern and George Gershwin, not forgetting the bossa nova maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Usually every 4th Saturday of the month there is a new flavour of music to the Blue, oh so mellow, just the job for a chilled out Saturday night and not to be missed!
Hailing from North Wales, David Burton is an accomplished songwriter and instrumentalist who has composed many thought-provoking and foot tapping songs.
This month we have another talented bunch and as usual Dave will be doing his stunning guitar thing...
Having performed solo and with his band up and down the country for over ten years David has supported fine artists such as Eric Roche and also played backup guitar for numerous talented singer songwriters including a stint with Duffy.
Over time he has honed a unique fusion of jazz, rock and folk known as fraz. His virtuoso guitar skills leave audiences open-mouthed as he performs his own compositions whilst also playing tribute to the work of acoustic guitar heroes such as John Renbourn, Bert Jansch and Pierre Bensusan.
There is no entry charge though there will be a raffle towards expenses for the chaps (Aber is a loong way!). Come and join us for an evening of first class entertainment.
Here's a bit from Dave to keep you going...
Like all of the music here at the Blue Bell Inn, it's a lovely sound and we would love to see you at the next one! Dave Burton, here every 2nd Saturday each month from 8ish.
Our traditional singing night is probably the busiest and most fun night of the week and Roger Hampson is at the keyboards, every Friday night.
Roger starts off next week at about 9pm, has a break around 10pm before we start again and we finish at around midnight. You can sit and listen, join in from your seat or get up and take the microphone.
This isn't karaoke, this is for grown ups, just like we used to do it years ago, a really good old fashioned singing night!
The Rantin' Dogs - a fantastic sounding folk quartet (look I know there are 5 in the picture, they're the two either side of centre!), Steve, Dugie, Mark & Michael would like to let you know that they rehearse and play here every 2nd Monday each month from 9ish (after the Welsh class), playing traditional acoustic folk with a Celtic leaning.
Check out where they got their unusual name from here cos there's no ranting with this group, like all the music here at the Blue Bell Inn, it's a lovely sound.
