    HOT VULTURES

    Southern English duo Hot Vultures – Ian Anderson on guitar, slide guitar and vocals and Maggie Holland on bass guitar, banjo, guitar and vocals – were one of the hardest working and popular outfits on the UK and European folk and college circuits of the 1970s. They mixed up a naturally Anglicised selection of old American roots musics from the 1920s, ’30s and before – early blues, pre-country, old-time music – with UK traditional music, acoustic R&B and a few originals, all played with energy, taste, enthusiasm and a genuine love of the sources.

    They worked everywhere from smoky Continental dives to the Copper Family’s monthly Sussex folk nights, from college rock gigs to early Cambridge Folk Festivals, and even had a bit of a following among people from the emerging mid-’70s punk scene as well as adventurous folk fans, possibly because they tended to play things rather fast and (acoustic) loud!

    They made three albums in the UK, the first of which was also released by EMI Belgium and the third (Up The Line) in the USA, very unusual for UK folk names in that era. They collaborated on them with guest musicians like Martin Simpson (with whom they also toured as The Scrub Jay Orchestra), Pete & Chris Coe, Al Jones and many more. Eventually the duo expanded into the English Country Blues Band and later the ’80s electric ceilidh band Tiger Moth. Their albums were anthologised on the ‘best of’ CD compilation Vulturama.

    Ian Anderson had begun his career in the late ’60s blues boom before releasing three solo LPs as Ian A. Anderson on the now cult ‘psych folk’ label Village Thing; in more recent years – when his day job permits – he has been in the duo The False Beards with Ben Mandelson. Maggie Holland subsequently blossomed as a solo artist and songwriter, whose songs have also been recorded by June Tabor and Martin Carthy (her A Place Called England was a Song Of The Year winner in the BBC Folk Awards) and is also currently playing in The Broonzies with Jez Lowe and others. In 2016 they’ll be re-uniting for one summer only, for the first time (apart from a few one-off command performances) since 1984.

     

    Admission £12.00 (£11.00 if tickets purchased in advance)
    A reduction of £1.00 applies on tickets prices for 2015/16 members.

    MIKE CHEESMAN

    Mike left his home in Godalming, Surrey, to go to America in 1979. His guitar style as well as his easy relaxed delivery has endeared him to audiences wherever he performs – a skill honed throughout England’s pubs and folk clubs, starting in the 1960’s. Upon arriving in America Mike performed in Chicago before moving to Peoria, Illinois, marrying and raising a family.

    On this, his first trip back to perform in the UK, he will be presenting an "evening of two halves". Mike has a passion for history and storytelling and the first half will feature songs from his show "The Soul of a Soldier" which he has been performing throughout the Midwest of the USA and more recently, Southwest Florida. The show commemorates the 100th anniversary of World War I and how it inevitably led to World War II.

    The second half of the evening will be an opportunity to reminisce a little with some of the songs he regularly performed in the area plus back in the '70's plus the chance share a few stories from that era -- a more light-hearted ending to the evening!

    Come along to welcome Mike back to the area and listen to the music he is now performing around the States and to enjoy some of the old songs from the early days on the Folk Scene.
