Bristol has always been a great city for The Men They Couldn't Hang and now their honey throated singer/songwriter Phil 'Swill' Odgers and renegade violinist Bobby Valentino will be folking your socks off at The Thunderbolt.
Best known as one half of the legendary joint vocal strike force of The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Phil Odgers strikes out promoting his second solo album ‘Roll To The Left’. Sharp songwriting – a journey through kitchen sink realism and social commentary. Phil’s warm melodic voice and rhythmic strumming acoustic guitar take centre stage throughout, aided and abetted by fiddle, double bass and lead guitar in all the right places.
Don’t miss this rare and intimate concert featuring virtuoso fiddler Bobby Valentino.
BUSH & FEY:
Steve Bush and Fran Fey, have been writing, recording and gigging together for well over a decade now. Their first album, ‘Row of Ashes', was released in November 2008, with the follow up, ´Earl Grey and Leather´ released in November 2016. Steve Bush first stepped out in Bristol with Essential Bop - one of the city´s seminal new wave bands. His reputation for intense stage performances and acerbic lyrics has not diminished since. In 2001, after many years in London, Steve – having just returned to Bristol - released the acclaimed ´Blossom Freak´ album. Fran hails from Wales. Proficient on guitar, mandolin, zither and ukulele, Fran has played all over the world, including jamming with Arab Musicians in Kuwait and playing echoing space music atop the Himalayas.
