"they play a beautiful set of folk-drenched indie. Stunning strings compliment the catchy tunes, such as Speakeasy. With sniffs of Johnny Flynn and Show of Hands and a George Ezra-esque growl to his vocals at the end, it makes for compelling watching." - Bristol 24/7

Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. After beginning his show business career at the age of seven as a juggler and acrobat, the Detroit native turned to the banjo and lit out for New York City where he rose to obscurity as "New York's angriest yodeling banjo player". Siting Buster Keaton, Abraham Lincoln and Elvis Presley as his primary musical influences, Eller became a staple of the beer halls, burlesque houses and underground theaters of the eastern seaboard.

THE HAPPY FEW

Thursday 28th July, 8pm, Free Entry

The Happy Few are part of the ever-emerging wave of incredible young bands taking roots music and creating something new and exciting. Following the way paved by Alabama Shakes and Jack White, via the spirit of The Doors, their unique take on soul/rock music uses heavy rhythm and dark atmosphere. With a giant hip hop/soul feel in the grooves, the guitars weave from explosive blues dominance to subtle atmospheric soundscaping, to compliment Alex Wilshaw’s incredibly haunting vocals.
