For our final show of 2018, A500 Music are delighted to welcome the fabulous Honey Ryder to Fulford for what we are billing as our 'Pre-Christmas party'.

Formed by singer Lindsay O' Mahony in 2009 and initially a duo, Honey Ryder released their folk influenced debut album 'Rising Up' to widespread critical acclaim. This led to the band supporting both Will Young, on a nineteen date theatre tour and Michael Bolton in arenas across the UK.

Kossoff... The Band Plays On @ Eleven, Sandyford View map - Eleven Permanent link

Kossoff... The Band Plays On

Billed as Kossoff - The Band Plays On..., Terry Slesser has put together a fine ensemble of high-calibre musicians to pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Paul Kossoff.

This is not your regular 'tribute' act, as Terry was vocalist in Kossoffs' post-Free outfit Back Street Crawler for their entire lifespan. This marks the first time since the seventies that Slesser has taken the Back Street Crawler catalogue (and some choice Free tracks) on the road.

Front-man Terry Slesser sure knows how to captivate an audience. He's got some seriously entertaining anecdotes in his armoury which are all delivered with style and panache.
Guitarist John Buckton has the Kossoff sound down to an absolute tee and that's no huge surprise when you consider that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said "If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist."
Buckton has captured the soul and rawness of Koss' playing - Paul Kossoff had his own unique / standout style and it lives on in John Buckton's fretboard.
Also Included in the line-up is former UFO, Wild Horses, Uli Jon Roth and Pat Travers' drummer Clive Edwards.
Mark Taylor (Elton John, Simple Minds, The Alarm) on keys and Rick Hunt on bass complete the line up.

Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his music shone through along with his personality ...all brought to life in a show of sheer quality which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist.

+ Long Strung Creatures.


£15 advance
£18 on the door
