Brewery Blues: Live music to kick start the weekend

Four varied and exciting musical acts are to perform at the New Brewery Arts in Cirencester on Friday, October 11.

Headliners Thrill Collins are on a mission to reinstate Skiffle, a genre some say the world forgot. They’ve reworked a variety of classic pop songs from between 1980 and 2000 using this infectious, down-home musical style, made famous by the likes of Lonnie Donegan and Ken Colyer. But the band are no overnight sensation, having been touring since 2009 and playing over 400 shows in upwards of 20 countries in Europe and America. The trio were the opening band at Glastonbury 2013, and have played at the London Olympics and many other festivals including Glade, Wychwood, Eden, 2000 Trees and Cheltenham Jazz.

Also performing is Alice Offley, a Swindon born pianist and singer/songwriter. She cites her influences as varied, from classical to grunge - anything that has emotion. A trained classical pianist and multi-instrumentalist, Alice recorded and released her debut solo album ’Skin & Bones’ in November 2012 to some acclaim, and her evocative vocal delivery and a knack for writing radio-friendly material suggests this is only the beginning of her success.

The third act, the Cirencester band Familiars, is helmed by front-man and song-writer Steve Skinley. They create dark and melodic post-rock, and regularly tour the South West.

*******

Last but not least, David John Lloyd is a popular Cheltenham based singer-songwriter and guitarist. His material is influence by folk artists like John Martyn, Bert Yansch, John Renbourn and James Taylor. He is an established performer whose recent career highlights include sharing the stage with Oli Brown, winner at the 2012 British Blues Awards, internationally acclaimed blues pianist Ben Waters at Vonnies Blues Club, and will be supporting Radio 2 presenter and blues aficianado Paul Jones in January 2014.
