Willy Porter & Luke Jackson – LIVE at the Great Orme Brewery
Monday 22nd October 2018
Tickets £14 ADVANCE
£16 on the Door
Willy Porter and Luke Jackson are two of the brightest stars on the roots, acoustic music scene and come together for this rare evening of awesome guitar playing and well crafted songwriting.
Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die hard fans for more than two decades. Willy blurs the line between indie-folk and rock with his searing signature finger-picking guitar sound, absorbing lyrics, and playful, high-energy live performance style. He has shared world stages with music icons Jeff Beck, Tori Amos, and Paul Simon, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music that resonates long after the last guitar chord fades.
Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, his songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven events–equal parts grit, soul, and muscle–that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Willy’s voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.
Willy Porter gifts listeners with an unforgettable ride, embodying the very best of what live music has to offer.
Luke Jackson is a Singer-Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent, who in 2013 was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category. He was also winner of Fatea’s “Male Artist of the Year 2014” and 2016.
Over the past few years he has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots circuits either through his solo shows, many festival appearances or when opening for such luminaries as Fairport Convention, Show of Hands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Seth Lakeman, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook and Sarah Jarosz.
One of the great voices of the new youngsters on the folk scene – and a terrific songwriter too – Mike Harding

Join MC Tony Vino:
Preston’s very own funnyman. Tony Vino (**** The Scotsman) has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005. Well aware of social and political issues he mixes friendly well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick witted responses. A finalist in 2006 Funny Bones competition, Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and comedy compere of renown. His life and interests are wide ranging and so is the subject matter he weaves together on stage.
“Tony Vino makes me laugh on and off stage. He’s always funny and has some of the same letters as my name”. Tim Vine
for Comedy Night as he presents:
Having survived being called ”the new Lenny Henry” (The Times) – he’s much funnier than that, lapsed choirboy Junior Simpson is a true star of both the black comic firmament and far beyond.
A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
He will be a familiar face from the big, bad world of TV, both from the likes of The Real McCoy, a regular panellist on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, as one of the team captains alongside Suggs on Night Fever and as host and star of two of his own series, In the Dark with Junior Simpson and The Hit Man, both for Channel 5. He has also worked with the likes of Jo Brand, Rolf Harris, Frank Skinner and Jonathan Ross. He also played a major role in the 2003 film Love Actually.
“A vigorous raconteur and vibrant mimic with lots to say. Watch that Man!” The Guardian
“His material is excellent” – Daily Mail
“One of the funniest people in British comedy.” – ents24.com
“Imaginative musical jokes and beautifully crafted original comedy songs…The material he offers is fresh, contemporary and pin-sharp original.”
Like many an Essex boy before him, James Sherwood was raised in Oxford, Bristol, Essex, and London, went to Magdalen College, Oxford and sang in the choir. Early comedy success included being a semi-finalist in ITV’s stand-up talent show Take the Mike, being a runner-up in the BBC New Comedy Awards and the FHM Holsten Pils Comedy Final.
His debut Edinburgh show ‘I Know What You Did Last Sunday’, was a total sell-out and was followed in similar fashion with ‘James Sherwood’s Somewhat Premature Review Of 2007’. Other Edinburgh shows followed with critical acclaim, whilst his writing career saw him awarded the BBC Radio Comedy Writers Bursary in 2008, before going on to receive a Sony Award in 2009 as part of the Now Show writing team. Other radio writing includes The News Quiz (amongst many others) and as performer he’s been on 4 Stands Up and Loose Ends. in 2010, James won “Best Comedy Show” for At the Piano at Hollywood Fringe Festival and in the same year was nominated for Buxton Festival Fringe Awards as “Best Individual Comedy Performance” for One Man and His Piano.
