Heading heading heading
FORMER local keyboard wizard Diz Watson (not to be confused with Dizraeli, left!) returns to his roots tonight with a show at the B Bar in the Barbican Theatre.
The ex-serviceman (pictured) turned New-Orleans piano supremo will transform the venue into a juke-joint for the evening, dispensing brilliant boogie-woogie and barrelhouse.
Listen up for arrangements of rarely-heard blues and r'n'b from the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, James Booker, Cousin Joe and many more besides.
PEGGY SEEGER at TOTNES FESTIVAL
THE highlight of Totnes festival that is already underway, has to be the appearance of international multi-instrumentalist and folk singer, Peggy Seeger, supporter of just causes and considered one of the leading ladies of the folk movement.
The concert will take place at the Ariel Centre in the town tomorrow night.
SIGNED to Big Scary Monsters and fresh from touring with Tubelord, experimental rock trio Tall Ships arrive at the White Rabbit tonight.
Originally from Falmouth, the band now reside in Brighton and have released two EPs and their debut album, Everything Touching.
Think Battles or Foals, for some idea of the dynamic of their sound which involves loop pedal abuse, serial instrument swapping and is influenced by the likes of Prince, Why? and Explosions in the Sky.
