Reilly, Nikitman and the Snake are coming

February 17 and April 14 2018

Live music continues at Letwell with a return visit from long-time favourites John Reilly and Lewis Nitikman on Saturday February 17th. If you've never heard the pair then you might wonder why they're just about the first names on the Letwell calendar year after year. Go to a gig and all is explained!!

Vocalist John and Canadian keyboards player Lewis - song writing partners for the past five years - deliver the perfect formula. Great music and fine lyrics put together stylishly with the odd classic cover track thrown in for good measure.

Next up on Saturday April 14th are Snake Davis and the Burden of Paradise. First time at Letwell, the four piece band ooze quality. Sax player and frontman Snake boasts an astonishing pedigree having worked alongside just about some of the biggest names in music.

The list includes mega stars from Tom Jones to Ray Charles, George Michael, Beyonce, Cher, Paul McCartney and Tina Turner. Take it as read then that Snake knows how to blow that sax. The rest of the band have quite a history too.

Vocalist Helen Watson has mixed company with Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt over the years. Rhythm guitarist Mark Creswell has shared the stage with Mark Knopfler and Ray Davies of the Kinks among others. Bass player Dave Bowie counts Martha and Vandellas among his conquests.

Tickets for both shows are already going fast. Phone Martyn and Andy on 01909 731626 and 540694 before they're gone.

The laid back sounds of West Coast America return to Letwell with the Zervas and Pepper Band.

Zervas and Pepper coming soon

Playing as a duo last February Paul Zervas and Kath Pepper transported us all back across wild oceans and high mountains with their country rock and honey glazed close soaring harmonies.

This time they bring their full band - a cross between Steely Dan and The Eagles - to our intimate venue.

This much acclaimed duo have toured with major names including James Blunt, Deacon Blue and Smokey Robinson. Highlights have also included trips to Glastonbury and appearances at Hyde Park Live supporting The Manic Street Preachers.

Their latest album - Wildwind - was recorded largely in the US with production in the hands of the legendary David Crosby's son.

Likened by many to Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, Zervas and Pepper recorded their previous album Abstract Heart in LA meeting Crosby - from all conquering 80s band Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - and collaborating with some of his closest friends during the production process.

Praise for the Cardiff band has come from Stuart Maconie on Radio 2: "So sweet are their harmonies you owe it to yourself to check them out...." Reviewing Abstract Heart fellow broadcaster Mark Radcliffe said: "Just fantastic..."

Lauren Laverne from BBC Six Music agreed: "We're just loving Zervas and Pepper so much..." The Guardian, meanwhile, said their music was "some of the year's best country rock."

Phone Martyn and Andy for tickets - priced £12 - Book early to avoid disappointment.
