The Beautiful Barley Boys
March 10, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Following an excellent performance at one of Mave’s Back to Our Roots nights we have invited The Beautiful Barley Boys back for their own gig.
The Beautiful Barley Boys are a folk / Americana trio based in Shrewsbury. After 4 years gigging at venues and festivals around the UK they released their first EP, ‘Couch’, in November 2016. The songs explore the challenges in navigating life situations and modern relationships. Their live repertoire includes world music (French, Spanish and Portuguese) as well as their own original material.
The band is made up of Sue and Joe, who perhaps uniquely are mother and son. They have been playing together since Joe was born. Sue claims she bred him specially but wishes he would wear more layers. Perhaps also uniquely, Lisa is Joe’s wife. She began passively aggressively working her way into the band over a period of time. She is just glad to spend more time with her mother-in-law.
The trio’s broad experience of live performance enhances their lyrical interpretation, whilst rich harmonies and soaring lead guitar lines build a textured organic soundscape.
