Asleep at the Wheel (+ support The Primitive Noise Band)

Direct from Austin, Texas, 10 time Grammy award winning Country/Western Swing legends - Asleep at the Wheel

'Coming right at ya!' - 50th Anniversary World Tour, one of only 8 UK dates!!

This is a huge coup for the Beehive in booking one of the great Americana bands. An incredible 8 piece line up on stage featuring pedal steel guitar, fiddles and horns fronted  by founder, leading light and lead vocalist Ray Benson, standing 6 foot 7 inches tall and taking into account his ten gallon hat and cowboy boots reaching nearly 7 foot!  A big presence and a big voice to match.

The band were featured on the first ever episode of Austin City Limits and have appeared eleven times since. Their history is the stuff of legends. An unmatched 10 Grammy Awards, Country Music Association Touring Band of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association. They have released 31 albums and had 20 singles in the Country Music charts.

Billboard Magazine quoted "Everything this act has ever recorded is simply spectacular". Along the way they have shared the stage with such greats as Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper, Hot Tuna, Lyle Lovett, Van Morrison, George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Reba McIntyre, Ricky Skaggs, Garth Brooks and Vince Gill amongst countless others, and many of those artists have guested on their albums.

Such is the stature and popularity of the band, Bob Harris will be featuring an unprecedented 8 tracks from them on his Radio 2 Country Show in the lead up to the tour. Their latest album 'New Routes' demonstrates that they are more relevant, enjoyable and musically nimble than at any other time in their 50 year history.

To quote Ray Benson "I've been told that I'm relentless, so I guess I am. I'm just doing what I believe I'm meant to do, singing and playing better than ever. My role and concept of leading a band has never changed. It's gathering the best musicians I can find to play at the best of their ability and kick some ass every night onstage."

This band HAS to be seen live. Reuters describes them as "One of the best live acts in the business". A spectacular mix of Western Swing, Country, Blues and good ole Rock n' Roll. Whether you want to watch with a drink in hand or jive your butt off with the swing dancers, A GOOD TIME IS GUARANTEED!!  If you see only one band this year, see these!

Big name country acts from America visiting the UK normally only play major concert halls or festivals. This is an unprecedented rare chance to catch the best in the business at the Beehive in Honiton.

The legends of the Texas Dance halls...... Asleep at the Wheel.

With support from The Primitive Noise Band - good time, hip shakin', Rhythm & Blues from the UK.

Phil Beer & Sound of the Sirens

Phil Beer & Sound of the Sirens

Phil Beer together with Sound of the Sirens in a Special Double Header event.

When given the opportunity to be together for this unique evening of music Phil, Abbe and Hannah leapt at the opportunity and they are all very much looking forward to it.

Phil is one half of folk supergroup Show Of Hands and is in much demand as a multi-instrumentalist and producer and has been described by the Guardian as 'where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide'. He was nominated for the coveted Musician of the Year title in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler, but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals. All are songs and music of memory and significance, sung in the subtle and melodic Phil Beer style and interjected with musings and amusings to an almost personal audience.

Phil will open the show and comes to the Beehive as part of the 'So Much to Choose From'  2020 Tour.  The solo shows for 2020 will be the last time Phil undertakes such a large number of performances and aim to encapsulate the last 40 years of his songs and music.

He will then be joined on stage by Sound of the Sirens and part of the show will be them making music together.

Sound Of The Sirens are Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood. They combine agile guitar-playing, soaring harmonies and lyrical, heartfelt songwriting to make lushly melodic music. They  released the critically acclaimed album This Time in early 2019 on independent label DMF Records. In Spring 2020 they will be playing a number of headline shows before playing festivals throughout the Summer.

“’This Time’ is a collection of moments, emotions, challenges and stories,” say the duo. “We’ve collected lyrics, melodies and ideas from the past couple of years for this project. We created this album last winter in an isolated barn in Wales with only guitars, a piano, wine and the dogs for company. The themes of time, love, loss, perseverance, hope and clarity are intertwined in these songs.”

Abbe & Hannah are very much looking forward to working with Phil again:-

"We are so excited to be sharing the evening with Phil Beer. He is always so lovely to work with. We managed to share a stage at Exeter Respect a couple of years ago and then borrowed his skills at Cottingham Folk Festival. Fingers crossed we get to play a few songs with him again this time.

We can't wait x"

The last part of the evening will be Sound of the Sirens on their own.

Saturday 13 June 2020 performance has been rescheduled to Friday 26 February 2021. If you have pre-booked tickets, they will be valid for the new date.

Andy Fairweather Low & The Lowriders

Andy Fairweather Low & The Lowriders

Andy Fairweather Low – Guitar & Vocals

Dave Bronze – Bass & Vocals

Paul Beavis – Drums

Nick Pentelow – Sax & Clarinet

Richard Milner - Organ

Andy Fairweather Low came to prominence as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '(If Paradise is) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent ‘Gin House’ to Andy’s future musical collaborations.

Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Mary J. Blige, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Van Morrison, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.

Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years 'Sweet Soulful Music' was released late in 2007 followed by 'The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low' which was released in the UK in June 2008 and the Live DVD followed hot on it’s heels. In fact Andy has been touring and releasing CD Albums since then and is building a strong following having now released four CD Albums, One Live DVD and a Three disc Box Set DVD / Double Live CD which debuted in the Amazon Box Set Top 50 in it’s very first week of release.

2013 saw Andy & The band opening the shows on Eric Clapton's European tour, headline The Americana Festival and complete their first tour in Japan with 8 shows in Tokyo. Their UK Autumn 2013 tour in support of the Zone O Tone was so well received that further early Spring dates in 2014 were added in the UK and Germany whist 2014 started with the band on Bob Harris’ rock show playing in session and continued with two UK tours, Festival appearances, a second tour of Japan and further German touring and a landmark appearance at Bluesfest held at The Royal Albert Hall which was broadcast live on Paul Jones Radio 2 Blues show and the next night they played a show at The New Theatre in Cardiff which was both filmed and recorded and was released as a DVD / Double live CD in Autumn 2015.

2015 itself was a year of consolidation as it started with an appearance in January at Celtic Connections Festival, contained two long UK tours, two tours of Germany, another Japan stint, a tour of Ireland and several UK summer festivals and one in Estonia but many people will remember that in May 2015 Andy and the band were the opening act for Eric Clapton’s 70th Birthday tour starting at Madison Square Garden, NYC and ending with a run of seven shows at The Royal Albert Hall.

2016 & 2017 saw more Japanese trips and European tours and also saw a few shows with an extended line up, The Hi Riders Soul Revue, with extra brass and Hammond organ players.

2018 saw a 41 date UK tour with this extended line up with remarkable festival appearances  including two drummers and in 2019 Andy was recognised as being among the top echelon of the world’s guitar layers when Eric Clapton invited him as a named guest to play at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, and Andy with the band completed another hugely successful 43 date UK tour.

A remarkable band, A remarkable Front Man ………….. Follow them into 2020 !

True Strays

True Strays

The Beyond the Horizon Tour with support from Jordan Jane

The True Strays are a vintage loving, blues fuelled, dirty rock and roll band. Their live shows are a joyous hoedown of huge bass driven riffs, a howling tornado of resonator guitar, cacophonous drums and soaring Hammond organ.

Influences span the history of modern music with great admiration for the delta blues of the 40s and 50s, British Invasion and Psychedelic Rock of the 60s and 70s, Southern Rock and Soul and modern age Punk, Rock and Blues artists. Blues music is at the heart of everything they do but their sound isn’t bound to those rules or that genre. Influences include greats like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Pink Floyd and more recent punk and rock and roll bands like Nirvana, QOTSA and Idles.

True Strays have made Bristol their home recently, after a previous band disintegrated after 5 years hard work. Determined to never be in that situation again, the True Strays was formed with the ambition that this band would last. With a new set of songs and hopes in their suitcases, the band set off doing what they knew best; playing live. A real road band, they took any show they could, busked relentlessly, and shared their songs with anyone that would listen. Regularly collaborating with old band mate Matthew Cooke and some of Bristol finest keys session players, the bands sound expanded and found new direction.

Breaking Glass 40 Years On-Hallelujah!

“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” Telegraph

The first major female star of the 80’s, award-winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame exactly forty years ago in 1980 starring in the film 'Breaking Glass'. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel's ageless songs include 'Eighth Day', 'Will You', 'Big Brother', 'Monsters in Disguise', 'Calls The Tune', 'If Only', 'Give Me An Inch', 'Blackman' and 'Hanging Around' - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times.

Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie), Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics)  keyboards and Tony Qunta (Odyssey/Edgar Winter) on guitar. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat.

“It's all there, that voice, soaring sax ...timeless.” Glastonbury Festival

“The sturdiness and earthy expression of her voice...marvellous” Hot Press
