** Spikedrivers in St Albans **

Saturday 25th November 2006 8:30 pm
The Maltings Arts Centre
St Albans
Box Office: 01727 844222

Taking inspiration from their American roots and the country’s rich musical heritage, the Spikedrivers’ song writing, vocal harmonies and unique instrumentation make their sound fresh and exciting. The atmosphere created by the band takes you on a journey, from southern juke joints and lazy front porches to the huge open spaces of dust bowls and railroad tracks disappearing into the distance… Besides performing their main set the Spikedrivers have agreed to combine elements of one of their brilliant workshops into the evening. This will cover a brief history of the blues, where it came from and how it has influenced so much of today’s popular music, the origins of the instruments, and most importantly involving the whole audience in discovering the music and having a great time doing so !

'The atmosphere the band is able to create around its music is nothing less than remarkable' Blues Revue - USA 'The Spikedrivers have the unique ability to conjure a presence, a sense of place, from a sound. 'Blues in Britain - UK

Tickets £12.50 (Cons. £10)

20th January - Nine Below Zero (Unplugged)

17th March - The Ian Siegal Band -
