Edgar Macias Quintet plays Buena Vista Social Club

The project is about the Edgar Macías Quintet’s “take” on this album or rendition of it. Every single track from this landmark album has been re-arranged and adapted for a Latin Jazz Quintet format, based on the abilities of each member of the group.

Buena Vista Social Club is both the name given to this extraordinary group of musicians and the album, recorded in just seven days in 1996 in Havana’s 1950s vintage EGREM studios. It was clear from the atmosphere of the recording sessions that something very special was taking place. However, no one could have predicted that Buena Vista Social Club would become a worldwide phenomenon – awarded a Grammy in 1997 and, at 8 million copies, outselling any other record in the same genre..

Recent quotes:

A superb quintet (…) who collectively created a compelling mix of Cuban percussive rhythm and jazz improvisation on what was a careful thoughtful crafted re-arranged intoxicating project’. ‘(…) a stand up ovation from a packed enthusiastic audience’

- Paul R. Croft, The Blue Room at Lincoln, UK

Ranagri

Ranagri are Dónal Rogers, Eliza Marshall, Jordan Murray and Eleanor Dunsdon and they have forged a new and contemporary sound on the folk scene, winning audiences at home and internationally, an energetic festival band yet equally at home with their more intimate writing and thought provoking lyrics. They are as happy to make you dance as they are to make you smile or shed a tear, passionately delving into current world topics, playing with politics, and creating uplifting music to lyrics with great depth.

Starving Rascals

Katie Fitzgeralds presents

Originally formed more than thirty years ago, the band has developed into, and established its reputation as one of the best bands in the area.

The Rascals’ repertoire ranges from hard-hitting classic rock music, soul, funk and more contemporary songs. All are performed to a very high standard, with great feeling, passion and a good helping of a’ la Rascals’ magic.  One of the main criteria for including any song in the set list is:- “Can you dance to it?” This alone, has helped to make the Starving Rascals a truly great “Party Band”.

Ian Parker Band

Ian Parker formed Parkers Alibi in 1999 along with Chris Lomas, Tony Bayliss and Morg Morgan.  The band became regulars on the European and UK blues club circuits before disbanding in early 2002. Later that year, he formed "The Ian Parker Band" comprising Parker, Morgan, Amadeo on bass and Andy Edwards on drums (later replaced by Wayne Proctor).[1]

 

In 2003, he signed to Ruf Records which made him known in the United States as well as Europe following a recommendation from Walter Trout who then took him on a European tour.[4][1] He has also played with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Peter Green.[5] The majority of Parker's music and lyrics are self composed with an original style.[6] Andy Snipper of Music News considered that Parker " ... may be the great lost British soul singer".[6] He has had long tours of Europe and the United States, such as the "Unique and Intimate Tour" in 2009/10 which included a set at the Bayfront Festival in Duluth, Minnesota.[7][8]

 

In March 2004, he appeared on the German live music TV show, Rockpalast, and a live DVD of his performance was released in June 2005, entitled Whilst The Wind (Ruf3007).[9]

Dizzy Lizzy

Dizzy Lizzy are a fantastic live tribute act, dedicated to one of Rock’s all time legends ‘Phil Lynott’ & THIN LIZZY. Established in 1994, their sound & set-list faithfully recreate that trademark Lizzy sound. 

One of the country’s leading and most dynamic tribute acts, they are the only act to have headlined both, the ‘Vibe for Philo’ in Dublin & ‘Remember Phil & Gary’ event in Holland. Also appearing at many prestigious venues, around Britain, such as the Cavern- Liverpool, Matthew street festival, O2 Academies up & down the country. Plus other large capacity venues including Butlin's.

They have also performed and toured with the original Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell. (Pic) Eric Bell’s reaction on first seeing the band…’I could only watch three numbers owing to the emotions. The resemblance to Phil and the mannerisms and playing, it was spooky – it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck…’ They can also be heard on the documentary CD ‘I am just a cowboy’. Released in the year 2000.
