A Gallery Bar Special: Unstrung Heroes featuring Geoff Lakeman
A regular on the Plymouth/ west country music scene for over 35 years, Steve Potter has played a huge range of music on violin and mandolin, from Renaissance to rock via morris and barn dances. After a number one hit in Portugal with indie band ‘The Catholics’, Steve moved on to ‘Mad Dog McRea’ precursors ‘My Earthly Twin’ before joining Geoff in the 1920s/30s tin-pan alley trio Speakeasy.
A classic, percussive finger-pick guitarist, Peter Acty is equally at home accompanying English or Irish folk songs, Appalachian, blues or ragtime. He is a mean American-style frailing banjo player too.
Geoff Lakeman on duet concertina, vocals and spoons is father of a folk dynasty. His youngest son is Seth Lakeman, elder brother is Sean who plays guitar in Seth’s band and middle brother is piano-playing Sam who is married to Irish singing sensation Cara Dillon. Geoff also fronts ‘Speakeasy’ with Steve Potter and guitarist Steve Redman.
Gallery Bar opens 7.30 pm. Band from 8.30 pm.
Free admission, bucket for the band, chatty atmosphere.
