This week at The Stables: With The Lindisfarne Story, Charlie Landsborough, Fleetwood Bac, Dave Koz, The Feeling, Jimeoin and Andre Canniere

Another busy week beckons at The Stables, so we'll skip the waffle and dive straight in to Thursday's (October 13) date with The Lindisfarne Story, courtesy of former members Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell, who will tell the inside story on their rise to fame, and perform many of their classic songs. 
It's a must-see for anyone who considers themselves to be a fan.

Charlie Landsborough is back at the venue on Friday night (October 14).  He has spent much of the last year working on material for his next studio album, which will be his 29th.
But keen to keep his fans appetite sated, he is performing a handful of selected dates, including this one.
Charlie is a genuine guy, a nice fella and a man who is known for his generosity.
He spent years as a teacher before he found fame in his 50s with What Colour is the Wind, and that song - written about a blind child posing the very question - has been adopted by St Vincent's School for the visually impaired.
The Liverpool establishment has also invited Charlie to become a Musical Patron. 

Country music is only a small part of his concert repertoire, but no matter what the genre, quality is always paramount.

Contemporary folk and acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts have sold out their show at the venue, so we'll move swiftly on...

And it's standing room only for Fleetwood Bac on Saturday (October 15) who promise to bring the absolute essence of the Mac sound to life.
How good are they?  Good enough to have received the thumbs up from real members Mick Fleetwood and Peter Green.
Try them.  If you like the original, you'll definitely like this lot.

Pay an early visit to the venue on Sunday (October 16) and catch the Gabrielle Ducomble Quartet on the stage from 11.30am, with a special blend of Gallic charm and sophistication which Gabrielle expertly applies to the British jazz scene.
Switching between English and French, she will perform Parisian style jazz and tango, putting a contemporary spin on songs by Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg, together with her own original material.

On Sunday evening (October 16) Dave Koz will do the business with smooth jazz snaking a marvellous sound-train from his saxophone. It's a warm welcome back for one of the hardest working men in show-business, who always proves a hot ticket.

Speaking of hot tickets, The Feeling are all sold-out for Monday (October 17) night.
The band announced that their current road slog would be their last until at least 2018, so understandably fans reacted quickly to get their mitts on tickets.
It's an intimate way to see in their hiatus;  the band had who joined Jeff Lynne's ELO on dates across Europe, playing to a quarter of a million people before this.
"We're not splitting up, but after 10 incredible years of doing this non-stop, we feel like now is a good moment to take a break and spend some time concentrating on our other projects," said frontman Dan Gillespie.
"We want to make this tour a celebration of everything we've achieved so far."

An evening of  brilliantly observed, ever-evolving and hilarious stand-up from the internationally acclaimed star of television shows including Live at The Apollo, The John Bishop Show and Sunday Night at the Palladium follows on Tuesday (October 18), with Jimeoin.
Don’t miss the chance to see Ireland’s own ‘Witruvian Man’ live in the Keynes.
A word of warning for those of you of a fragile disposition though – strong language and adult material is pretty likely during his time at the microphone. 

If the thought of that makes you feel a bit giddy, sit this show out.  Everyone else should get booking for the main stage show which will get busy from 8pm.

Last up this week is trumpeter Andre Canniere, who will be using his stage time to play music from his latest album, which has been inspired by the poems of Rainer Maria Rilke and Charles Bukowski - combining the haunting and mystical elements of the former, with the grit and boldness of the latter.
