I’ll be performing with the hugely talented Devil’s Dick Trio and Steve Kettley’s Odd Times at the Click Clack Club this Thursday 13 September at the Third Door. Come along! Only a bargainous £4 for an evening of song and fine tunes.
The 28th Click Clack Club looms large on the horizon, enticing, inevitable, and with your edification its primary objective. And almost certainly fun too. The date is Thursday 13 September, as usual at the Third Door (below Negotiants), doors open at 8pm. First on we welcome back old friends the Devil’s Dick Trio (they played at CCC 2!), boasting the formidable yet unpredictable talents of Sandy Wright on vocals, guitar and possibly harmonium, Sarah McFadyen on fiddle and other things, and Joey Sanderson on cello and double bass. Lucifer has a laugh with Beefheart and Zappa indeed – only three will be left standing at the end. Poet extraordinaire Ryan Van Winkle will be up next – renowned for his poetry events in Scotland or even the world, he’ll be joined by some musical types on stage for a meeting of words and music in grating harmony, or perhaps beautiful disarray – only time will tell. Veteran group Steve Kettley’s Odd Times complete our eclectic offering – abrasive contemporary original jazz music, probably involving toys, and a new composition featuring a hotel reception bell is threatened – SK on saxes and flute, Robin Mason on cello, Alex Hudson Craufurd on basses, Des Travis on drums.
