TOP London musical talent is heading to Rugby when the acclaimed Before The Goldrush (BTGR) night presents its first show outside the capital.
Having recently celebrated its fifth anniversary as a platform for emerging musicians, this special BTGR concert will be headlined by Forty Elephant Gang – an innovative guitar, bass, banjo and mandolin-wielding four-piece with songs of heartbreak, misdeeds and revelry.
The band will be supported by the acclaimed Tom Hyatt, a cutting-edge solo performer who has attracted comparisons to the likes of Jackson Browne, John Martyn and Nick Drake.
The line-up is completed by Amy Gillespie, a promising singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has just released a self-produced EP entitled Seventh Wave.
Co-promoter Christopher French from Rugby said: “For those who remember the excellent Rugby Roots shows at Lawrence Sheriff School and The Merchants Inn, this concert will be along similar folk/Americana lines. It’s great to bring these excellent acts to town.”
The concert takes place at Lawrence Sheriff School on Saturday November 11. Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets (£10 plus small booking fee) are available at www.beforethegoldrush.co.uk or from Rugby Library’s Visitor Centre. Call 07855 463 934 for more information.
