Recommended Posts

Thursday 31st Jan: Jam Night
Hosted by Chris Firminger & The TwoJays, our weekly jam session is a wonderful night full of highly talented musicians but caters for all abilities. With a full backline provided and accompaniment if requested, it's a perfect platform to showcase your music and even secure a full paid gig at The White. Always an evening of great music, previous performers have included Julian Jones, Richard Hawley, Thor, Sam Wain, Fahrenheit, Grave Danger & many more.


Friday 1st Feb: Gav Coulson Group
Highly respected guitarist Gavin Coulson arrives at The White Lion this evening, but this time with his own group.

Playing a selection of fine tunes from Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore amongst many others, a belter of a rock night is anticipated!

Baz Groom - Photographer and Reviewer for Rock of The North...
"What band in their right mind would perform the Allman Bros "Whippin Post" on a Friday night in the Boot & Shoe? More importantly, get away with it? Well that band would be the Gav Coulson Group. The same song even got em' up dancing (until they realised the song is a tad over 3 minutes!) And along with tracks from Gary Moore, Hendrix, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout and a blistering take on Joe Bonamassa's version of Just Got Paid, the group went down a storm. Most know of Gavin's prowess on the guitar, but this is no 'one man band'. Four cracking musicians who know their stuff. Keyboards from Chris Pilkington ex Storm Bringer & Empress really give the band a rich sound. Ably assisted by a powerhouse rhythm section, this is rock blues at it's best!!"


Sat 2nd Feb: The Steve French Band
Blues guitar maestro Steve French takes you on whirlwind tour to hear the immortal licks of guitar legends from all over the world - all in one night.

Steve's powerful, yet soulful playing reflects his passion for the music. His wide-ranging musical influences extend from Jimi Hendrix to Freddie King.

"Hendrix, Vaughan, power and passion....a Stratocaster hero
in the Blues tradition"
~ The Star


Sun 3rd Feb: Chris McMahon's Folk Afternoon
