DangerBird + Calvin Travers

DangerBird + Calvin Travers

Dec 11, 8:00pm - Dec 11, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

DangerBird are an instrumental Alt Rock/Jazzish trio from Leeds. They are drawn to plaintive melodies and improvisation. Their music is simple yet progressive, thoughtfully crafted and always open to interpretation. Controlled psychedelia, guitar driven rock, they strive to make your soul fly! Taking influences from a range of artists such as Kruanghbin, Gogo Penguin, Terry Riley, and Neil Young, after whom the band is named.


In anticipation of his first full length album coming early 2020, Calvin Travers will be giving a preview of whats to come, performing a set of instrumental songs featuring Alasdair Wells (drums) and Sam Quintana (bass).

Inspired by the early years of the solid body electric guitar these compositions will take you back to 1960s americana when reverb drenched guitar twang ruled the roost.

‘Fantastic liquid playing, the groovy guitar wizard Calvin Travers’. Tom Robinson - BBC 6 Music

So, come along, drown your sorrows or celebrate the greatest landslide victory of all- another year of the Jukebox, as you relax in the company of Dr Bordello, a man who should then be old enough to know better… but won’t be. Forget your troubles and woes and avoid having to hear any songs with jingle bells or references to snow as we tear through a storming set of twenties and thirties tunes, including a brand new number that we’re playing for the first time in lovely Leeds.

Christy Herron Blues Band

Christy Herron Blues Band

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

Christy has been writing, recording and performing as a guitarist and hired gun for more than 20 years. A soulful, rich and road worn blues voice teamed with searing guitar virtuosity.

The backdrops and rhythm guitar work in both his covers and original material contain glimpses of a fascination with harmony and melody which would be at home in jazz arrangements, and are lavish demonstration of his time-earned experience. Lyrically there is a resolute search for beauty in the commonplace, with occasional nods to the noir.

Afternoon Americana41 call laneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

We're very lucky to have London based critically acclaimed Jason Mcniff calling in to play for us while he's up north. This will be a really special show so get down early for a cosy intimate acoustic gig.
Family friendly & Free entry as always! With your weekly host B.W.Pike

Bio & Press links below -

Jason McNiff is a London based Yorkshireman of Irish and Polish descent. He has made five records of what is loosely described as Folk or Americana, yet there is something very British about him. As Time Out attests, “McNiff’s quiet, intimate, fragile-sounding vocals draw you into his world– an almost timeless place, through which he drifts, a romantic loner, a dreamer, at home with the blues.” He is often touted as one of the UK's most overlooked musical treasures - a great songwriter and top-notch finger-style guitarist. His album, April Cruel (Fledg’ling) was nominated for best album in the alt.country category at the Independent Music Awards in the US while a new double CD anthology is out now.

"One of the UK's best kept secrets" - Mojo

"A superior singer/writer " - No Depression

"A bounteous mix of the finest roots music has to offer" - Folk Radio UK

"Deft finger-picking style against a wonderfully atmospheric vocal" - Clash

​"Britain's greatest contemporary fingerstyle guitarist" - Guitar Quarterly

​"A triumph of English-Americana" - Time Out

"The nearest thing out there to Bob Dylan and the Band" - Sean Rowley, BBC Radio London

​"Dark songs of drunkenness and murder!" - The Independent
