The Stables: Larry’s new year blues...

editorial image

Normal service resumed at The Stables this week following the New Year shenanigans kicking off with a (sold out) Nils Lofgren gig last night (Thursday).

A long term member of Springsteen’s E Street Band, he toured with The Boss on the 2012-13 Wrecking Ball jaunt and last year’s (still feel funny saying that) High Hopes trek.

The acoustic slant focused on Nils’ extensive back catalogue featuring multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta.

Soul sounds take over tonight (Friday) with Signed, Sealed, Delivered and their celebration of the genre.

The Larry Miller Band are back on MK soil on Saturday night, which is a call to blues-rock fans to give themselves a night out they wont regret.

Miller is playing in support of his latest album Soldier of the Line, and the guitar ace is thrilled with what has been put to disc: “This is my best album ever,” he states.

“I love the blues rock genre but I’m always wanting to hear something more, take it somewhere else but never losing sight of passionate playing of the heart.

“I really believe we’ve achieved it on this CD,” he added.

There is a reason Larry’s talents are often mentioned in the same breath as Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore and other guitarist greats.

It’s because Larry is one of them.

Don’t leave it to chance for tickets – Larry’s gigs at The Stables are always a big hit with fans of the genre.

Red Shoes will walk into Stage 2 the same evening.

If you join them, you will ‘find yourself drawn into a world where their song-writing skills are beautifully revealed,’ with a marvellous mix of folk and roots music.

Sally Barker returns on Sunday evening. The Poozies lead-singer will present stories from her Another Train opus.

All quiet on the Wavendon front on Monday it may be, but Tuesday will be anything but, despite the absence of music.

Multi-award-winning comedian Mark Watson is bringing his show, Flaws, to us.

This show is part of a full-on 65 date UK tour, which marks his decade in comedy.

In Flaws, Mark find that as humans, despite our lack of perfection and poor decision making, we’re actually pretty spectacular.

And, now that he is in his mid-thirties, he’ll reflect on his life so far – from the terrifying age process to parenthood.

“Mark Watson is a Prodigy,” according to The Guardian newspaper.

Not to be confused with being in The Prodigy, of course.

Watson has never been a firestarter, okay?

Tickets for the comedy roar are thin on the ground, though, so hurry for yours or curse when you miss out.

It’s the same for Wednesday’s Classic Rock show, too – which will take listeners on a roar-some show through the top 20 greatest-ever guitar riffs.
