November's Sunday Afternoon Acoustic

November's Sunday Afternoon Acoustic

Enjoy a Sunday afternoon listening to great music from three different acts in a wonderful, intimate venue.

Over from Sweden touring the UK are duo Perfect Blue Sky, and we will also be joined by exquisite guitarist Saiichi Sugiyama and returning local favourites Quiet Wish.

Perfect Blue Sky is a collaboration between Swedish folk/metal artist Pontus (Pna) Andersson and Australian rock singer and guitarist Jane Kitto. With the uninhibited vibes of 60s/70s psychedelic classic rock, their new album, The Eye of Tilos, is filled with imagination and spirit. Following the success of their recent UK radio tour, Perfect Blue Sky is embarking on a nationwide UK tour in November, with feel-good new single Astronaut released on 20th October. The video was filmed in July by award-winning fine arts photographer Mikaela Holmberg in Finland.

Andersson and Kitto formed Perfect Blue Sky in 2014, drawing together well-known guest musicians who share a love of classic rock. The album features Jerry Donahue (guitarist for The Proclaimers and Fairport Convention) and Dave Getz (Big Brother And The Holding Company drummer). Also in the line-up is Frenchman Frank Bessard (Joe Satriani, Stanley Clarke) on drums, Australian keyboardist Danny Oakhill, and British viola player Lewis Parsons.

Saiichi Sugiyama is a British-based guitarist, singer and composer, best known for his writing and performing collaborations with Pete Brown, the lyricist for Cream since 2002 to date. His previous bands in 1990s featured Mike Casswell and Phil Williams of Walk on Fire, Andy Smith of Hot Chocolate, Zoot Money, Boz Burrell of Bad Company, John Cook of Rory Gallagher band as well as the guitarist, Paul Wassif. Sugiyama's self-published studio albums in 2000s featured Clem Clempson of Colosseum, Pete Brown (who co-wrote and co-produced the albums), Zoot Money and Ben Matthews of Thunder. His guitar style has more than a passing resemblance to that of Peter Green and has a vibrato technique similar that of Paul Kossoff.

Quiet Wish are a band from Surrey, UK playing alt-rock, electronic trip-hop, ambient progressive, floyd-esque original music that reflects current environmental and humanitarian concerns. The music takes you on a journey; a listening experience of themes and emotions that are interwoven and connected though the use of political poetic imagery both subtle and sometimes direct.
