When The John McClean band and Ben Holland share the same bill, musical sparks of folk and blues usually fly like fire flies into a warm Mississippi sky. Aside from that and bearing in mind we are now facing a cold Winter in Camberwell, where else should you be but supporting your local musicians in the warmth of The Joiners Arms. The John McClean band have played the Joiners on a number of occasions now, and it seems to me that the more they play, the more people they attract. Last time around John had the entire pub singing to the sweet sound of gospel blues, mixed in with the odd sea shanty. No better way to get a crowd going then singing songs that encourage the clinking of pint glasses and the swilling of beer. In summary, The John McClean band are a multi talented yet humble outfit that are a lot of fun. We look forward to it. Supporting John is the ever talented Ben Holland who has been expanding his repertoire of songs deeply routed in folk and blues. While Ben's songs are immense, they are merely a pocket for his profoundly thought-provoking lyrics to sit in. It's this marriage of melody and lyrics that make Ben so unique, and it's little wonder he has been playing a whole host of live gigs in the London area of late. The melodic folkster Ceri James will also be supporting The John McClean Band, bringing a tinge of the Celts to what promises to be a great night As always folks, come down with fun in your hearts, enjoy a few beers and check out the stone baked pizzas. This gig is gonna' be a good'un!
opening for Bel and The Boy - lots of other bands too
