Promoters for Folk on the Pier

…and other fine folk, rock and roots events

Scott Butler
Scott Butler created Deckchair Productions in the early 'noughties' initially as an agency for a number of English folk rock bands which included Little Johnny England and Tickled Pink. However during that time as originator and producer of the ‘Folk on the Pier’ festival in Cromer, Norfolk , Scott branched out to produce a number of offshoot concerts under the banner ‘Folk Beyond the Pier’. Since then he has gone on to produce numerous concerts and events mainly in the East Anglia area including promoting many years of the Fairport Convention annual Winter Tour dates in Norfolk and an extensive run of 'Live at the House' concerts at Norwich's historic Assembly House. He has also produced some significant rock & blues shows including ‘Heads Down No Nonsense Boogie’ which featured the Hamsters and Wilko Johnson and two ‘Rock & Blues on the Pier’ with Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero and many others. Scott still produces a number of concerts but ‘Folk on the Pier’ remains the flagship production and more information on the festival can be found on the Folk on the Pier website.

‘Folk on the Pier’ Showcase and Evening Concert with the Bounty Hounds

Sheringham Little Theatre are delighted to welcome a special afternoon and evening presented by the Cromer folk festival team. The afternoon in the Hub will feature various acts showcasing their talents and playing for a special slot on the 2018 Pavilion Theatre bill. The best judged act will also get a chance to play a support slot in the evening which features Cromer festival stalwarts, folk-rockers, the Bounty Hounds from Suffolk. (Submissions for the showcase will be accepted from 1st January 2018 and details of how to apply will be posted at www.folkonthepier.co.uk)

The Bounty Hounds play a mix of traditional and original songs and tunes, all in their own inimitable style. Formed in 2006 the band is equally at home on a festival stage or performing an acoustic set in a more intimate venue. They have been a popular act at ‘Folk on the Pier’ for many years now.

Jeff Chapman’s Roosters Present an Evening of R&B from the Essex Delta!

This high energy Rhythm & Blues act from Southend-on-Sea are guaranteed to get the toes tapping and much more when they visit Sheringham Little Theatre for the first time

Jeff Chapman formed the Roosters way back in the 1980’s, and apart from a brief period in the early 90’s when they disbanded due to Jeff’s throat problems, the band has worked around the pub, club and blues festival circuit in the UK for at least 25 years now. The Roosters style is mainly 1970’s pub-rock inspired, with songs of that period especially by Dr Feelgood, the Pirates with Wilko Johnson featuring heavily in their set. There is also the inevitable Chuck Berry number and a good smattering of rock ‘n’ roll thrown in for good measure. The Roosters are Jeff Chapman, vocals, guitar, Chris Patching, bass and Johnny ‘H’, drums. There will also be a compatible support act on the evening.

Saturday 24th March – Doors 7.30pm – Concert at 8.00pm - All seats £8.00

‘An Evening with Richard Digance’

 

Richard Digance is an award winning entertainer who is also listed in the Virgin Anthology of Music as an influential writer of comedic songs. Not many guitarists have played a duet with Queen's Brian May, worked with Steve Martin, played an acoustic set with Status Quo or performed at the London Palladium with the late Robin Williams. He has recently toured the British Isles celebrating his 50 year career. His concert at St George's Theatre sees him generously giving up his time to support the work of the Bluebird Deaf Water Ski Club, a not for profit organisation, details of which can be found at www.bluebirddeafwaterskiclub.com

‘An Evening with Hayley Moyses’ Britgrass Three’

Norfolk’s leading country music exponents bring their unique blend of foot stomping roots music to St George’s Theatre. A mix of Bluegrass, Americana and Appalachian music plus their interpretations of contemporary songs played on the traditional instruments of bluegrass music, banjo, guitar, dobro and fiddle. Their career has taken them far and wide with festival and concert appearances throughout Europe and beyond. Appearing at the iconic venue The Station Inn, Nashville, the premier venue for bluegrass in the city, certainly helped underscore the level of their music and originality. An evening not to be missed!
