TennesseeWaltz.MP3

Breeze and Wilson have been writing, recording and playing music together for ten years. Based in Staffordshire, they've developed a reputation as a refined and extremely talented duo. They are a shining example of what can be achieved with two voices and two acoustic guitars. Harmonically rich, musically and lyrically diverse, they invite comparison to Simon and Garfunkel, Seals & Crofts, and Gallagher & Lyle. Their personal favourites include Lyle Lovett, James Taylor, Guy Clark and Alison Krauss. They have released two EPs and, more recently, their first full length album, titled 'Oh Nova Scotia'.

They appeared last year at The Bradford Arms as a 'Showcase Spot' and we received numerous requests to book them for a full Guest Night.  If you missed it, come along to see why they were so popular!

Artistes from left to right:

GREGOR BORLAND is an eight times Scottish Fiddle Champion!  His pedigree as a professional fiddle player is undeniable, having toured all over the world with various high profile musicians and bands from a young age, but he’s also equally at home on abass guitar or mandolin.

PETE ABBOTT is a highly regarded and respected singer/songwriter & guitarist.   Pete is the driving force behind the band and leads from the front, bringing to the performances his own relaxed and confident style.   Whilst being a seasoned solo artiste, his sheer enjoyment of sharing the stage with two great musicians and friends is there for all to see, and that enjoyment is transmitted to the audience in abundance.  The emphasis of Pete’s performances is always on ‘entertainment’, ensuring that the band not only deliver high class musicianship but also a ‘good time’ for their audience.  His own seemingly effortless performance is captivating.

DAVE WALMISLEY  is well known on the UK folk scene by his association with the band ‘Risky Business’, who appeared at The Bradford Arms in September 2017.   A talented multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, he adds his own touch of class to Other Road’s arrangements and has a great ear for harmonies as well as taking the occasional lead vocal.  Dave’s wonderful on-stage humour has made him a very popular member of the band since his introduction.

Andy Clapham
