London’s Troubadour Club is one of London’s go-to intimate music venues. From their website, “The Troubadour was the first place where Bob Dylan performed in London. Paul Simon, Martin Carthy, Redd Sullivan, Charlie Watts, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jimi Hendrix have all played here. Richard Harris fell in love with his wife Elizabeth here (she was doing the washing up). Ken Russell recruited staff for his first shorts here, and it was here that he became friends with Oliver Reed. Led Zeppelin used to come and jam here after their Earl’s Court gigs. Tom Robinson and Elvis Costello used to play here too.”
On Saturday 3rd November 2018, singer-songwriter soloists Connor Selby and Saiichi Sugiyama are joined by John O’Leary & Eddie Angel for our second night at the Troubadour, following our gig on 6th October which featured Paul Lamb & Chad Strentz.
Connor Selby. A young artist, well-received by such authorities as Classic Rock magazine. His solo set is thoughtful, largely Blues-based, but also shot through with his growing repertoire of music drawing on wider influences. For Connor’s second set, he will be joined by special guest Joe Anderton.
Saiichi Sugiyama. The songwriter, guitarist and singer, long established in the London/Surrey music scene, presents acoustic versions of his acclaimed songs from his 30+ years career which have attracted collaborations with classic rock luminaries such as Andy Fraser (Free) and Pete Brown (Cream lyricist).
John O’Leary. Blues harmonica player and vocalist, of Savoy Brown and Sugarkane, John O’Leary has been praised by noted figures such as Champion Jack Dupree. Here he teams up with Eddie Angel, a compelling guitarist-vocalist who returns from a European tour just in time to appear at The Troubadour Club.
