On Friday June 21st, WagonWheel Presents… is delighted to welcome the The Lonesome & Penniless Cowboys back to Sheffield, in their own words “probably the best band you’ve never seen”. Those of you lucky enough to have seen them before know we’re in for a night of the finest old time Country, Cajun and Western Swing at The Geystones. As if that wasn’t enough, we also have Sheffield’s own rock ‘n’ rollin’ father & son duo M&J Blues to kick things off with a bang. A fantastic night out guaranteed. Advance tickets priced at £5 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/209254 or over the bar in the venue (12-6pm). Entry on the night will be £6. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.


***THE LONESOME & PENNILESS COWBOYS***

The Lonesome & Penniless Cowboys, probably the best band you’ve never seen are back .

In the dark and dismal early 80′s, before you were born and when Britain was still in black and white, 3 men had a vision, a dream and indeed a calling. Somehow The Thin Man, Clive Mellor and Mog decided it was their life’s vocation to make people love country music. Before Alt Country, before New Country before Americana and before a million hipsters wore Johnny Cash T shirts The Lonesome & Penniless Cowboys were formed just to let people know the truth. Hank Williams, George Jones, Gram Parsons, The Louvins etc had a body of work that any one with a heart, a soul and a hard luck story would love. Turned out the plan worked and after turning Chorlton Irish Club into a regular venue and packing it out every week the cowboys’ reputation and alongside it the love of country music in the North West grew.

The Cowboys more or less called it a day in the 90′s but realised that they enjoyed each other’s company and the joy that came ( to them and audiences) from bashing out their unique blend of Country, Cajun and Western Swing so occasional gigs were played, often more by accident than design.

In the last decade the Cowboys have played an average of 4 gigs a year, but, as none of us are getting any younger and having narrowly missed the end of the world twice in recent times. They’ve decided to up the ante and play at least 6 gigs a year. That included a recent one month residency at The King’s Arms in Salford. Tonight they make a welcome return to Sheffield after two years away.

They may well be penniless, but whilst they continue to play some of the most joyful, energetic and downright danceable Western swing in the UK they won’t ever be lonely.” Larry Gott (James)

People still talk about the Beatles residency at Hamburgs Star Club… Ditto the Velvet Underground regular as clock work engagements at Max’s Kansas City!? Me? I’m still talking about the Lonesome & Penniless Cowboys residency at the Kings Arms Salford….AND IT’S NOT EVEN STARTED YET!!!Marc Riley (6 Music)

Many folk felt that Country music died with the passing of Patsy Cline or that old country schmoozer Jim Reeves. Others thought that the more recent passings of Mr Cash and Kitty Wells spelt the end. Beyond those gravestones and fare thee wells were another breed. A breed they called the Lonesome, the Penniless, the Cowboys. They make music that keeps Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson sleeping on their backs with one eye open.” Paul Heaton


***M&J BLUES***

Image

M&J Blues are father and son Mark & Jeff Lyall. They’re regular performers at many Sheffield venues doing their bluesy country rock ‘n’ roll thing. The ever popular duo will kick the night off in fine style.

What he said. ^^^^^

I know he's usually a rambly senile old drunk, but he's right this time.

This is a week on Friday. I know exactly how many of you here have seen and know how amazing The Lonesome & Penniless Cowboys are. For every one of you that doesn't show i will drown a kitten.*













*May not be true. But do you want to take the chance?

I would have pondered wandering across the road for this one alas I am gonna be in Madrid for work, You should contemplate streaming these gigs on the Internet Craig, I could then be there in spirits..

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

Big thanks to Craig for inviting us over. Thanks to Mark for lending me a bass amp. Thanks to everyone for coming down and thanks to those two local lads for playing along with us. It was a top night out and if you want to catch the Cowboys again before we have a summer break we'll be in Salford on Sunday night. Next time, we will hire the helicopter.
