Sons of Navarone UK tour February 2010

Richard F Thompson of the BBMA forwards this news:

You are invited to an evening of bluegrass music with the Sons of Navarone, one of Europe’s top bands.

This Belgium-based bluegrass band have been in existence since 2001 and since then they have successfully taken part and left their mark in many parts of the European music scene. These guys stand for WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). Well played acoustic bluegrass music, with outstanding close harmony singing that has become their trademark.

The tour starts off with a private concert at RAF Headley Court – the Armed Forces Medical Rehabilitation Centre - and then moves on to:

Tues. 16 Feb. Sutton Scotney Village Hall, Winchester, Hampshire
Wed. 17 Feb. The Castle Inn, Swansea Road, Pontlliw, Swansea
Thurs. 18 Feb. The Grove Inn, Back Row, David Street, Leeds
Fri. 19 Feb. Wellington Arts Centre, Eight Acre Lane, Wellington, Somerset (with Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys)

The Sons put on a great show with their interactive rapport with the audience and their onstage humour keeps the audience sharp and on the edge of their seats. As well as traditional and contemporary bluegrass, the SONS also perform songs from other musical genres but giving them their own special bluegrass arrangements.
