Returning to the Crosskeys Hotel

Andy Long Bass Player

For a long time I was a member of the Islwyn Acoustic Guitar Club, we met once a month and usually had a guest artist as well as an open mic session. For most of the club’s lifespan it was hosted at the Crosskeys hotel near Risca.

The Tim Crahart Blues Band played at the club several times, always a great night.

The pub has been shut down for the last couple of years, but it has recently been bought up by a friend of ours and is due to reopen this Saturday night, 31st October and we’re pleased to say that we will be playing a live set for the opening night.

We’ll be kicking off around 8:30pm for a night of blues, gospel, rock and soul. Come along if you can, I’ll buy you a pint!

Some local gigs

A couple of gigs this week

Just a quick announcement for any of you who are local to South Wales.
Two gigs happening this week:

Thursday 10th September: The Boat Penallt: 9:00pm: free entry

One of our favourite pub gigs, The Boat has a fantastic atmosphere, lovely people and epic real ales and ciders. The only thing we find hard to do there is to stop playing!

Saturday 12th September: St Pauls Church, Newport.

An anniversary celebration for the people of ‘The Lab’. If you fancy coming along I don’t expect anyone would object. 7:30 pm

contact Tim at tim@timcrahartbluesband.co.uk

Thanks guys, see you soon.

Tim, Harvey and Andy.
