TALES FROM THE WOODS Presents At THE SPICE OF LIFE
SUNDAY 21st JANUARY 2018


THE GALLERYS


The Gallerys are a young trio, who are heavily influenced by the sounds
of rock music golden age, from Who, Small Faces, Beatles through to Oasis in the nineties, however
they are not slavish copyists, they are definitely not a tribute act, they are very much their own band,
writing their own punchy well-constructed songs, I witnessed them live at
the Big O festival in Orpington back in July & were duly impressed, since that time they have supported
"Madness" at Detling festival in Kent, catch them while you can -
they're going to be huge.
Sunday 21st January 2018, Spice Of Life, Doors 7pm 1030pm finish
Ticket details will be announced soon.


TALES FROM THE WOODS Presents At THE SPICE OF LIFE
SUNDAY 28th JANUARY 2018

SKIFFLE - THE LAST HURRAH

Sunday January 28th at Spice Of Life Soho, we are holding a "Last Hurrah For Skiffle"
12 years ago Tales From The Woods began its live music events career with a celebration of Skiffle at Water-Rats Theatre Bar,
Kings Cross, which as many of you will recall who were there proved to be a hugely successful event, sadly since then
we have sadly lost too many of the performers who graced that stage, hence the need to show our respect to the survivors of
this uniquely British take on American roots music, with one last, not to be missed, London show at this wonderful intimate
venue with perfect sound, visibility & plenty of seating availability, just a short walk from Skiffle birthplace 2is Coffee Bar,
Old Compton Street Soho.
Featuring
Peter Donegan, Chas McDevitt, Allan Bailey, City Ramblers Revival
Tales From The Woods Band
Darren 'Cast Iron' Vidler will be performing a tribute to Rick Hardy
Expect a few surprise guests too. Ticket details will be announced soon.

AMERICAN MUSIC MAGAZINE
American Music Magazine is published by the Swedish Rock 'n' Roll Club. We are a non profit organisation devoted to the 1950s rock 'n' roll music and our intention is to document, as far as possible, the early years of rock-a-billy, rock 'n' roll and its related artforms. The text of the magazine is in Swedish and English. Each issue is full of original photographs and discographies. AM works in co-operation with the "Tales From The Woods" Roots Music Social Networking Group in the U.K. The aim is to collaborate to keep rock 'n' roll, its history, and its many talented artists and musicians alive for posterity and future generations - this through sharing articles that have appeared in our magazines over the years, helping each other with publicity and generally spreading the word not just to the converted, but also to those yet to share our enthusiasm.
