I hope this reaches you well. Somehow November is almost upon us and there are a few gigs in particular I should let you know about…
First up on Friday 3rd November I’ll be playing a concert at Chettle Village Hall near Blandford Forum in Dorset (DT11 8DB). This is a gorgeous venue I’ve had the pleasure of playing a couple times alongside Alan West & Steve Black (I’ll be joining them here again on December 1st too!) but this will be my first solo show here…really looking forward to it. Tickets are £10 and can be booked in advance by contacting Jan on 07776 323198…plenty of wine, local beer and food available on the night too!
On November 11th I’m really excited to be heading to Tenby Blues Festival for the first time. I’ll be playing twice - first up as part of the evening show at Church House on the bill with Bella Collins and Max & Veronica, and then I’m playing again for the late night session back at the Fourcroft Hotel. Head to www.tenbyblues.co.uk for tickets and to find out more about the festival…it looks fab!
Another highlight for November will be a full-band show on Sunday 19th at the Cellars Bar in Teignmouth as part of the Teignmouth Jazz & Blues Fringe Festival. Joining me for this one will be my good friends Simon Garrett on bass and Chris Page (ex Andy Fraser, Chris Spedding) on drums. We’ll be playing from 4-6pm so be sure to come and check it out if you’re heading to the festival that weekend.
The full list of everything I’m up to over the next couple of months can be found at www.adamsweetmusic.com/shows. The twice-monthly Thursday night residency at The Bellows at The Wheelwright Inn in Colyford with Alan West & Steve Black takes a night off for the first week in November whilst the pub is closed for a change in management. We wish Kirstin & Mark well for the future and thank them wholeheartedly for all they have done in building this venue over the last 3 years…we’ve had some really special nights here. The 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month shows will resume from the 16th November.
In the meantime the bookings for 2018 are rolling in and I’ll start posting these on the website soon…if there’s anywhere you’d like to see me play next year then let me know!
All the best and hope to catch up soon,
