Brooks Williams LIVE

"The proverbial triple threat"

He plays a fiery guitar : has a rich and silky voice : and writes hook-laden songs.

Spiral Earth's 2014 Best Male Vocal nominee is one of the most commanding performers on the acoustic roots scene. Walking the line between Blues and Americana, he is ranked one of the world’s Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists.

americanaUK says

It goes without saying that he is an absolute master with a six string but Williams’ talent doesn’t end there. He is personable and funny and easy to relate to when he shares anecdotes in between songs, which are themselves catchy and upbeat. On top of it all he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into. Brooks Williams is impossible not to like."

Red Shoes LIVE
Red Shoes are constantly rekindling imaginations and rousing spirits of audiences across the Folk and Acoustic circuit, both in clubs and at festivals. With their musical and lyrical savoir-faire they carefully craft images and hooks that remain determined to get in your head, representing points of view that give potency to the music and create lasting impressions.

Their album, Ring Around The Land contains sharply observed songs with backbone and intensity that will take listeners on an emotional journey, from the heartfelt deeply personal My Father's Green Beret to the rousing anthem of the title track. The poignant opening song Celtic Moon was recently recorded by Fairport Convention on their album, Festival Bell.

Soul & motown disco


A third visit to Broseley's Birchmeadow by
Rob Corbett, Don Allen, and Keith Thomson.


Between them, as Top Drawer Soul, this tremendous trio are amongst the area's most popular soul DJ's.

Rob's a key man in the SoulIntent events, which take place in a Marquee on the pitch at AFC Telford United - they attract big crowds.

For those that don't know (there may be some), soul went into orbit in the 1960s and dominated the black music charts throughout the next fifteen years and more. It also lent itself to a whole new generation of immensely popular white artists like the Stones & Yardbirds who used the genre’s bluesy aspect to great effect.

Entry by ticket only.

While & Matthews - LIVE
While and Matthews have been a leading force on the acoustic Singer/Songwriter scene since their collaboration began in 1994.

The past two decades have taken them all over the world, gaining plaudits, awards and an ever growing loyal fan base. In 2013, 'Rock Society' magazine wrote, "their pedigree is without question. Both are supreme songwriters & multi-instrumentalists & it’s the union of their two wonderful voices which is the crowning glory with the emphasis being on the exquisite two part harmonies."

"While and Matthews" music is a unique experience, one that will take you on an emotional journey - it'll make you laugh, cry, give you pause for thought, inspire and move you - all of this wrapped up and presented in a dynamic, skilful and diverse package. The connection between them on stage is not only tight and technically excellent, it is simply electric, unique and unrivalled.

They have an extensive catalogue of albums and songs, many of which have been covered by other artists. Their list of accomplishments, accolades and awards is immense.

This is music for everyone.

Claude Bourbon
Born in France in the early 60’s, Claude Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained. This finger picking guitarist has performed and studied all over the world; he has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of Western folk.

Medieval & Spanish blues


“… this accomplished artist offers tender, compelling performance through highly developed precision. His sound instantly creates ambiance – from haunting Spanish moods to lyrical, romantic jazz, Claude Bourbon provides both a rich evening of music for lovers, and a real treat for music lovers…” BBC

“Do you know what Medieval guitar sounds like? I didn’t either ‘til I hooked up with Claude! This is some cool stuff, and he’s French and everything!” Dolores River Brewery, USA

Blackheart - LIVE

Wow !!!!

What a catch for Broseley!!!

In just a few years, since their song 'Unlike Water' was used on the Moben Kitchens TV commercial British multi-instrumentalist duo Blackheart have recorded three albums, enjoyed airplay in nearly every country in the world and played successful tours of UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands plus two headline tours of Australia and New Zealand.

Their music and unique sound shun categorisation, combining acoustic instruments and the voice of Chrissy Mostyn with ancient synthesisers, effects, atmospherics and electronica to create a new brand of avant-garde ethereal folk. Their highly personal, haunting music is flavoured with piercing observations and penetrating lyrics which, as Australia's Western Star commented, “take their audiences from uplifting to heartbreaking in a single song.”

They're coming
back !!!

After their last visit someone wrote -

"what can I say?
Last night's performance from O'Hooley and Tidow was quite simply brilliant. Beautiful, beautiful music with a great bit of banter thrown in.

The harmonies were spine tingling, the audience were fantastic and the night was one that will live long in the memories of all those who were lucky enough to be there.

It was so good to welcome Belinda and Heidi back to the Birchmeadow Centre - great to see them and wonderful to hear the new material from The Hum as well as favourites from previous albums (and so interesting to learn what 'the hum' was all about)."

Winter Wilson LIVE
With six critically-acclaimed albums to their name, Winter Wilson are known across the UK acoustic music scene for their fine original songs, stunning harmonies and off-the-wall humour.

Kip Winter’s voice is simply one of the best in the business, delivering power and emotion in equal measure (described by one promoter as “from melting to belting”). In the past she has sung everything from jazz to opera, but is at her best and happiest when singing folk and blues.

Described by the great John Tams (Sharpe, Warhorse) as a “magnificent” songwriter, Dave Wilson is now recognised as one of the best on the English acoustic scene, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats” including Vin Garbutt. Add to this a mellow, relaxed singing style and some mean guitar playing.

Put these two together and you get great songs, beautifully sung and much laughter – a performance guaranteed to deliver superb entertainment.

James Hickman and Dan Cassidy
Hickman’s emotive, soaring vocals and driving guitar is complemented by Cassidy’s ingenious and virtuosic fiddling. Their sound flows from the connection between British and American folk and is bursting with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of these genres. The lively English wit of Hickman is set against Cassidy’s bone-dry irony and American drawl as they take audiences on a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey.

James' and Dan's duo was formed in 2008, beginning with several successful local shows in James' hometown of Shrewsbury and the surrounding county of Shropshire. Their relaxed banter and unique musical style was well received and they were soon performing further afield. The following year, with the prospect of more comprehensive tours approaching, they recorded and released their debut album ‘Severn Street’, featuring arrangements of traditional songs and tunes and several of their own compositions.

Their successive tours have grown steadily in size and they now perform throughout the UK, enjoying concerts from the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Wight. Inspired by their love of traditional music from Britain and America, James and Dan continued writing together.
