Joe Topping & Scott Poley

Thursday 24th April 2014

Joe Topping is known to Rothbury Roots regulars from Elbow Jane and previous solo gigs but he hasn't been here since 2011 so this gig is overdue.

Joe is a singer-songwriter who has been described as a "cross between Ry Cooder, Woody Guthrie and Paul Brady".

From the traditional music heard in the folk clubs he grew up around to the Americana and blues influences from his adventures in the USA Joe has developed his own unique bottleneck guitar style which he employs in many of his original songs and has a voice that can move from velvet soft to steely and powerful.

Joe will be joined by Scott Poley on pedal steel.

    Advanced booking is highly recommended
