On Sunday July 27th, WagonWheel Presents… in association with Neil McSweeney and Shakespeares brings two stages of live music to this year’s Tramlines festival. Upstairs in the Bard’s Bar will feature band sets from The Lucky Strikes, The Nøse, Mike Hughes, Grassoline, Paul Littlewood, Tomorrow We Sail and David J. Roch. The outdoor stage in the stable yard will include acoustic sets from David J. Roch, Quiet Loner, Ash Gray, M.G. Boulter, Neil McSweeney, Jacob Fletcher and Tom Baxendale. Live music begins at 3.30pm and entry to both stages is free!







From Leigh-On-Sea they’re carrying on the finest musical traditions of the Thames Delta, from initial forays in garage-blues towards an impressive melange of roots music and southern rock.





***THE NøSE***




The Nøse sees Neil McSweeney bringing the noise with three piece band. Something more than a little different to his singer/songwriter show.









Building on an amazing 2013 which saw him gain fans and radio play from the likes of Dermot O’Leary (BBC Radio 2), Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2 & 6Music), and Cerys Matthews (BBC Radio 6music) as well as a nationwide tour supporting Miles Kane, new single ‘The Road’ cements Mike as one of 2014′s most promising new artists.









Chesterfield’s Grassoline play a bluegrass influenced brand of alt-country featuring guitar, double bass, fiddle, banjo and mandolin and sometimes more.









Paul Littlewood has a signature arrangement style, a way of doing songs. No fancy tricks, no production wizardry, just subtly changing low-key textures and a voice. Poignant and ethereal blues music.









Tomorrow We Sail is a group of seven musicians based in Leeds and Sheffield. Formed in 2009 they have spent time developing and honing their sound into what is now a vast landscape of reverb-soaked guitars, orchestral strings, piano, accordion and multi-layered vocals.









Whether on record or playing live, David effortlessly conveys emotional intensity using a voice which The Guardian says “can soar to ethereal heights as effortlessly as it plumbs red-raw depths” and in doing so he finds the perfect vehicle to expresses his deeply moving lyrics and stunning melodies.









Quiet Loner is the pen-name of songwriter Matt Hill. Quiet Loner sings songs about love and fear, life and death, despair and hope. On a live stage Hill is an understated yet powerful performer delivering a show that is emotional, political, occasionally angry but nearly always gentle and human.





***ASH GRAY***




Ash Gray has just released debut solo album Once I Got Burned after spending nigh-on twenty year career fronting The High-Class Family Butchers and Ash Gray & The Girls, or holding down the lead guitarist’s job in various rock bands in Austin and New York.





***M.G. BOULTER***




As well as being the singer & guitarist with The Lucky Strikes, M.G. Boulter has released various solo albums. As a player of an array of stringed instruments, he also worked alongside many other artists including Conor Oberst, Neil McSweeney, Duke and the King and Rosalie Deighton, while remaining a long standing member of the Simone Felice Group.









Neil McSweeney is a songwriter and musician based in Sheffield. His acoustic guitar playing style combines folk, blues and country influences but it is his voice, likened by The Guardian to a male Tracy Chapman, and his direct and personal lyrics for which he is most recognised.









Previous album ‘All The Dead Roads To The Kingdom’ was written and recorded whilst travelling through Eastern Europe, Russia and the USA. The record draws heavily on influences from all of those places, from the bleak sad beautiful world of ‘Burn’ to the edgy chaotic rhythmic pulse of ‘Don’t Go Down’, the album’s recordings showcase Jacob’s haunting voice and interest in variations of mood dynamics & instrumentation.









Tom Baxendale’s songs combine elements of alt. country, new wave, rockabilly, pre-Beatles pop and post-Dylan americana.

Just looking at the schedule, Public Enemy are down to start at 17:00. Is that right? I assumed they would be headlining.
