Paddle4Relief will be holding another fundraising music gig at The Aggi, Braunton on Friday 21st August 2009! Founder, Tim Tanton is heading back to Sri Lanka in September, for three months, to complete a number of projects before the East Coast Monsoon Season hits!
. . . . . . featuring headlining band 'The Artists' – a quartet of talented young men who gave an energetic and powerful performance at their inaugural P4R music gig in June, who are fronted by the charismatic Pascal on lead guitar and vocals.
. . . . . . a new sound for P4R are 'Tied Loose' - a five piece band consisting of Keira - Vocals, Wilf - Rythm guitar, Dan – Bass, Adam – Drums and Darren - Lead/rythm guitar. They play their own material along with covers including; Communication Breakdown, Bring it on Home, Knockin on Heavens Door, Back in Black and Sweet Child o Mine. They are in the majority, a classic rock band, drawing on influences from Zeppelin, Hendrix, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, The Stones etc. But with their very own unique spin on it, largely helped by their female vocalist, Keira.
. . . . . . the enigmatic youth of Jim Heard as 'Ashbeck Goes Acoustic' – Jim was asked back following such awesome feedback from the crowd he entertained at the main P4R event on Saunton Beach back in June. The 19 year old singer/songwriter knows how to wow the crowd with his acoustic set. Jim's musical influences include Stereophonics, Blink 182, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and anything acoustic.
. . . . . . and finally but definitely not last, we have the mature and experienced Douglas E Powell – an absolute backbone of P4R's music gigs.
. . . .'Douglas E Powell's own take on folk and Americana has earned him great respect from fans of his music all over the world.
Choosing to play solely with acoustic guitar and harmonica, Douglas tips his hat to his musical heroes Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Burt Jansch.
His live performances are intensely charged with deeply personal lyrics over gritty and beautifully simplistic guitar work.'
And to help them blow the roof off, the ever present PINKY PA!
The evening will be kicking off around 8.30pm. A donaton of £3.50 will be requested on the door. All funds raised will go towards further Well and Water Projects in the village of Arugam Bay, Eastern Province, Sri Lanka.
