Because of concerns about the new 'Omicron' strain of coronavirus, we have decided to cancel our Christmas Party with QUICKSILVER - (Grant Baynham & Hillary Spencer).
Quicksilver will now be featuring as our October 2022 guest (covid situation permitting).

This duo is based on a simple notion. If you pair a couple of great talents and get them working to their strengths, then something extraordinary may happen.
Hilary Spencer’s voice is a thing of beauty. The smoothly-powerful centre of Artisan’s benchmark acappella for twenty years.
Grant Baynham matches the baroque style of his songwriting with a guitar technique of gorgeous intricacy.
His lengthy broadcasting credits include four years on BBC1’s “That’s Life!”

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 a bass 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.
