  • The Alter Eagles

    Arlington Arts Mary Hare, Newbury RG14 3BQ

    The Alter Eagles

    The Alter Eagles are delighted to return to the Arlington Arts Centre with a very special tribute to one of the greatest country rock bands of all time. Joined by their friends The Spectre String Quartet, the band will play the entire Hotel California album from start to finish in the first half. Then in the second, they’ll perform a combination of ballads like New York Minute and Take it to the Limit, together with greatest hits like Take it Easy, Lyin’ Eyes, Witchy Woman and One of these Nights. Since they started in 2004, the six piece have built a reputation as one of the most faithful tributes around, so along with the string arrangements, you can still expect plenty of rocking twin lead guitar breaks and sumptuous four part country harmonies.
    So what makes a great tribute? It’s more than simple mimicry, according to singer/guitarist Jay Stezaker. “It’s not as if we dress up like the Eagles or anything like that – we’re more interested in the music.”
    “It’s been a real education,” says guitarist and singer Steve McCormack. “One of the Eagles‘ great strengths is that they make everything sound so simple, but when you come to pick it apart, you realise how much is going on and what great songs they really are.”
    “Playing with the string quartet allows us to reproduce the original arrangements even more faithfully,” says Alan Tomkins, one of the band’s founder members. “The girls are great players and really enhance the show with their performances.”
    The band members are Steve McCormack (vocals, guitars) Jay Stezaker (vocals, guitars) Alan Tomkins (keyboards, guitars, vocals) Rob Beattie (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals) Mike Bradley (guitars, vocals) and Ollie Green (drums and percussion).

  • The Shee’s Summers Promise Tour

    The Shee’s Summers Promise Tour

    All day
    28/04/2022
    Arlington Arts Mary Hare, Newbury RG14 3BQ

    The Shee’s Summers Promise Tour

    Cross-Border folk multi-instrumentalists and festival favourites, The Shee, met on the Folk and Traditional Music Degree course at Newcastle University in 2006.

    The Shee are an exceptional band boasting powerful and emotional vocal performances and instrumental prowess. Featuring the talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year 2017, Rachel Newton on Harp, Sting’s clogger of choice, Amy Thatcher, on Accordion For ‘The Shadows’ Tour in Spring 2020 The Shee will be joined by a new member; Scottish-Icelandic percussionist Signy Jakobsdottir, adding a fesh approach to the band’s huge catalogue of material.

    Following three albums (‘A Different Season’, ‘Decadence’ & ‘Murmurations’) and a hectic touring schedule over the past decade, the six members of the band each commissioned a Folk Music hero and in some cases mentor, to write an original piece of music for their fourth album ‘Continuum’ to celebrate their tenth anniversary as a band.

    Premiered at their sell out concert at Celtic Connections and toured around the UK and at Summer festivals throughout 2016 – 2019, the album has received great audience and press acclaim.

    The Shee are now working on material for their new album, which will feature an adventurous brew of Folk, Gaelic and Bluegrass music. Expect slow airs, Gaelic ballads, original songs, high energy tunes, hypnotic riffs, and, of course…clog dancing!
