Sunday 16 September

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett - Final Straw Tour - Matthews Hall, Fore Street, Topsham Devon EX3 0HF - 7.00 pm - Tickets £15.00+ from WeGotTickets

John Otway

John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage. 

His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!

Wild Willy Barrett

Virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and songwriter best known for his partnership with John Otway. 

Willy will be embarking on his last tour, aptly named "The Final Straw", with John Otway in Spring 2016, after which he plans to concentrate on his new venture: Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection.

Lindisfarne - Tavistock Wharf, Canal Road, Tavistock, Devon, PL19 8AT - 8.30pm Tickets Advance £21.00 - £19.00 Wharf Music Club from 6.00pm on the night £23.00 - seated + standing - Box office 01822 611166 - Visit website for more information and tickets.
LINDISFARNE was born in 1970 when Newcastle singer-songwriter Alan Hull joined Rod Clements, Si Cowe, Ray Jackson and Ray Laidlaw, collectively known as Brethren (formerly the Downtown Faction blues band). The new combination’s music, an immediately distinctive blend of Alan’s poetic lyricism and Brethren’s rootsy instrumental style, soon came to the attention of independent label Charisma, and their first album, Nicely Out Of Tune, was released before the year was out.

Following Jacka’s subsequent retirement, Rod Clements accepted an invitation from the others to join them in re-establishing their collective identity as Lindisfarne. As Ray Laidlaw once said, ‘Lindisfarne is more than any one individual’; and though members have come and gone, Rod’s return maintains continuity with Lindisfarne’s beginnings and reinforces their shared commitment to keeping alive the unique legacy of one of British rock’s great bands.
