Folk and Acoustic Music

Between the Lines

7.30 pm

All Saints Gainsborough DN21 2JR

Bring the whole family and friends along to enjoy the Folk and Acoustic music of Between the Lines. Phil Biggs, John Blanks and Mark Addison recruited Dave Tucker into their ranks a couple of years ago. Phil and Mark already played with Dave in the country/rock band “Crossing the Tracks”, and this has, as you might expect, lent an intriguing air of Americana to the four-piece.

Between them they play various guitars, mandola, whistle, mandocello, bouzouki, dobro, banjo and slide guitar, although Dave takes responsibility for most of these. This is all underpinned by Mark’s bass guitar

Tickets £8; Students with ID and accompanied children FREE Tickets are available on the door
