The Believers from New Orleans are Garstang Unplugged’s first guests of the new season.
Craig Aspen and Cyd Frazzini met in bar in Seattle. Although they were raised on a diet of metal and punk, it was their love for old school country music that brought them together. The blend of Craig and Cyd, is a paradox where opposites attract. A New York City roots style, against one from the plains of Colorado.
It’s a raunchy sound, with raw emotion and strong story lines. Mastered by the twang trust’s Ray Kennedy, their current cd “Lucky You” blends pop hooks & harmonies while keeping one foot firmly planted in American roots.
Imagine Gram and Emmylou having The White Stripes over for dinner, or what Johnny Cash and The Tennessee Three might’ve sounded like if they’d jammed with The White Stripes. That sounds about right to Cyd Frazzini who says: “I hope we can always come across that dangerous.”
Support is from Boss Stewart and Friends, a new name for one of our regulars, with an eclectic mix of blues.
On Thursday, March 17, they’ll all be appearing at the Kenlis Arms, Ray Lane, Barnacre, Garstang, PR3 1GD. It starts at 8.30pm. Tickets are £10 on the door, or through the website, or by telephone on 01995 – 602795.
