The Wicky Wah Wahs + Robert Jackson

— The Ill Repute
A night of country, blues, and folk music with a dance floor and margaritas.
price: Headfirst Tickets


Are you a country, blues, and folk fan? Do you enjoy blues dancing? Well, get ready for a really great night at the Ill Repute!

The Wicky Wah Wahs are I-Sha-Vii (vocals, guitar) and Henry Slim (vocals, harmonica).
They sprung from the ground fully formed on a farm somewhere near rural Bristol in the Spring of 2011.
A kindly old mushroom farmer discovered them & looked after as if they were his prodigal children. He gave them their musical instruments, and taught them English & how to sing & play. And 9 different ways of cooking/eating mushrooms.

Expect blues, folk, and country originals & covers.


Support comes from A Different Thread front man, Robert Jackson.

Poets and wanderers at heart, A Different Threat reflect on romance, reckoning, and the calls of the open road. Front man Robert Jackson weaves together elements of piedmont blues, 70s' folk revival, and country into an authentic Americana sound, with his wailing harmonica, finger-picking guitar, and stirring voice.


£4 in presales
£5 on the door

If you fancy delicious Mexican food by the Ill Repute - come down early, as the kitchen closes when the gig starts.

If you're a blues dancer, good news - we'll move some tables out of the way to create a dance floor!

If you're a blues fan but this is the first time you've heard about blues dancing and you'd like to try, don't be afraid to ask someone on the dance floor to have a boogie - everyone will be happy to show you their ways ;)

Or perhaps you'd like a class beforehand? Check out Blue Mondays on Facebook for info on their Monday classes.

We can't wait to see you!
