12TH JANUARY 2012 - ALAN TYLER + GEORGE FRAKES + THE KILCAWLEY FAMILY @ ACES & EIGHTS


ALAN TYLER + GEORGE FRAKES + THE KILCAWLEY FAMILYFREE ENTRY!
Another fantastic line-up for our weekly acoustical hoe-down at North London's most Rock 'N' Roll bar!
After a brilliant couple of months residency Pretenders guitarist James Walbourne is off to prepare for his forthcoming tour with the wonderful Kami Tee. Make sure you catch them on tour.
Stepping in to the breach we have one of my favourite songwriters, lead singer of The Rockingbirds and Britcountry pioneer Alan Tyler.
As the lead singer of Heavenly Records signings The Rockingbirds in the early 90s Alan Tyler blazed a cow-punk trail across the globe and made a couple of fantastic records, played some amazing gigs and even appeared on Top Of The Pops with Right Said Fred!
Since then he has continued to write and record and run his roots club Come Down And Meet The Folks. After some recent Rockingbirds reunion gigs rumours abound of a new album about to emerge.
George Frakes is becoming a Thursday favourite. He played a blinder at Aces just before Xmas and went down a storm at The B&G on N.Y.E. he's an incredibly gifted finger picker (hardly suprising as he counts Davey Graham & Bert Jansch among his guitar tutors!) with great songs and voice.
It's the first time we've had The Kilcawley Family at Aces but we're really looking forward to their lovely harmonies, harmonicas, autoharp and tunes.
The fun starts at around 8:30pm You can sample one of the delicious pizzas on offer whilst choosing from a vast aray of bourbons and yes entry really is free!
