Husky Tones @ Roebuck Hotel
Oct 6 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Husky Tones @ Roebuck Hotel | England | United Kingdom

This blistering Bristol-based duo hit with the force of a much bigger unit. A stand-up drummer who also delivers keening vocals, and a crunchy, dextrous, raging guitarist – the perfect girl/boy, punk-blues alchemy.

Husky Tones’ punk blues style favours the common rawness, simplicity and emotion shared between the punk and blues genres. Live it is delivered by the unique set up of standing singer-drummer Victoria Bourne and guitarist Chris Harper. Formed as a duo in August 2016 Husky Tones’ approach to punk blues mirrors what they love as audience members: inventive, individual and fully aware of tradition without being a slave to it.

Husky Tones’ musical, lyrical and sonic influences include contemporary and classic punk blues acts such as The Bonnevilles, Miraculous Mule, Bob Log III, The Gun Club, punk legends Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, the music of the North Mississippi Hill Country artists such as R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Cedric Burnside, and alternative rockers Morphine, The Black Keys, Nick Cave, and PJ Harvey.

Husky Tones’ songs have been played on national radio including the BBC Radio Two Blues Playlist and by Paul Jones on BBC Radio Two as well as international radio. Their 2017 album ‘Who Will I Turn To Now?’ has been album of the week on radio stations in the USA, UK, and Europe. They have been described as ‘Artist to watch’ in ION Indie Magazine USA with ‘Momentum’ as a featured video. They have built a reputation for intense live shows performing headline shows at places such as London’s 100 Club, Fiddlers Elbow and Blues Kitchen, Brighton’s Latest Bar, The Fleece in Bristol and national UK festivals.

Always captivated by raw, cathartic music and with a keen eye on current events Husky Tones politically charged punked up blues is coming to a juke joint near you.

Mind The Step (Appalachian Dancers) @ Roebuck Hotel
Oct 7 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Mind The Step (Appalachian Dancers) @ Roebuck Hotel | England | United Kingdom

Appalachian dancing originates from traditional English, Irish and Scottish clogging and stepping styles as danced by the immigrants who settled in the Appalachian Mountains in North America. The dance evolved in remote mountain communities and incorporated steps from the dance style of native Indians and former slaves.

 

Mind the Step was formed in 1990 by a group of dancers wanting to “do something different “ and we have been performing our unique style of Appalachian dancing ever since! We choreograph all our own dances using traditional Appalachian clogging, stepping and flatfooting styles drawing inspiration from many sources ranging from the American flag in a dance called Liberty to the name of the local pub in Windmills. This energetic and exciting dance form will take your breath away, both dancers and spectators alike!
