Sunday 28th November

Mansell Davies first time at the Queens!!!

How strange? Mansell is a mainstay of the circuit here in South Wales and yet this is his first time in the Queens Head. Great voice and delivery Mansell always entertains and is warmly welcomed. A true troubadour!

Sunday 5th December

Will Killeen “The King of slide guitar”

The unique guitar playing of Will Killeen kicks off December. Some say “beyond definition”; we say “slide blues with generous amounts of Irish airs, Ragas and the occasional Hopi Indian motif”. A serious accomplishment and a feast for the ears.
Always welcome and one of the nicest guys in the business.
 
 

Sunday 12th December

The Whiskey River Boys

Whiskey River play Americana – Cajun, Zydeco, Good Country and Low Down Dirty Blues with a dangerous edge. With many years experience of performing, these guys deliver the goods.
The current band was born after founder members Martin and Aidan went to Louisiana in 2003 and visited a fabulous funky dance hall called “Whiskey River Landing”, built on the edge of the Atchafalaya swamp, South of Breaux Bridge.

Thursday 23rd December

Alex Hutchins. John Paul Gard and Toby Perret

Its that great Christmas tradition at the Queens Head ! Again !!!

“The most Strutful groove in Funkdom” – Monmouthshire Shopper 
 
Its the end of the musical year so once again its time to light up the burners, bring to the boil and let off some steam from this stunning trio. It only happens once a year and they always pack the house.
For the uninitiated we have world guitar demonstrator, Alex Hutchins; the Hammond groove of Mr John Paul Gard (once voted keyboard player of the year we’ll have you know), and the astonishing drumming of Mr Toby Perrett. Certainly master of this universe! Get there early if you want a seat.
 
 

Wednesday 5th January

The Plancktone Club presents … Long, Gibbs, Goodyear, Owen

Starting 2022 – a new year with some new music. An evening of free-form explorations from Ashley John Long (Double Bass), Phil Gibbs (Guitar), Alex Goodyear (Drums) and Lyndon Owen (Reeds).
 
All four players are know throughout Wales and beyond, stretching the barriers of spontaneous extemporary music. Given the stylistic preferences of the quartet, this should be an evening of intense exploration, using a language that only four people can speak and no-one can understand. Pin your ears back and be part of the discovery.
