Paul Jones & Dave Kelly at the Century Theatre...Must See

Friday 16th January 7:30 pm.

These long standing co-vocalists with The Blues Band get a big buzz out of taking things down a level, simplifying the music a little, and plying their trade as a duo, thus inspiring their very own personal and individual approaches to a dynamic, rootsy and exhilarating set of Country Blues. Venues large and small have been hushed and then enraptured by the sense of ‘old times’ in the Mississippi Delta.

Friday 16th January 2015 - 7.30pm

Talon - The Acoustic Collection 2015 at the Century Theatre...Must See

Friday 23rd January 7:30 pm.

On the back of the incredible success of their award winning ‘Talon – The Best of Eagles’ show; Jonny Miller, Chris Lloyd, Peter Anderson and Keith Buck began a labour of love. ‘Talon - The Acoustic Collection’, has to their amazement, taken on a life of its own and 2014 saw the release of their critically acclaimed acoustic album.

In 2015 the show will be touring the UK from January – March followed on July 3rd by a week long cruise on board Fred Olsen’s flagship ‘Balmoral’. If you have not seen ‘The Acoustic Collection’ before then you are in for a real treat. Sat on bar stools and armed with no more than their trademark four part vocal harmony, acoustic instruments and laid back banter, Talon will simply leave you spellbound. Come and experience the other side of Talon as they perform a selection of their favourite contemporary acoustic classics from such artists as James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, CS&N, The Everly Bothers, Michael Jackson, The Eagles and many more…

The team that brought you the award-winning ‘Great Expectations’ have got their teeth into Bram Stoker’s classic tale of the vampire.
