The Noels Arms: ‘Daniel Philip Cooper’ (Blues Musician) 4pm (Debut)
Dan Cooper is a Leicester-born blues guitarist and singer. Performing live since he was 14, he learnt his craft huddled in front of his father’s record player. With his Guitar and a stack of old Blues Vinyls, from the age of 7 he would spend endless hours trying to replicate that magic sound. His laidback rhythm-driven style lends a unique spin on classic blues and rock songs, from Robert Johnson to Motorhead. Over the years an eclectic range of acoustic covers have culminated into a repertoire of old classics you’ve grooved to countless times; and new favourites you’ve never heard.
The Geese and Fountain (Croxton Kerrial): Sunday Session ‘C J Hatt’ 5pm
Mr ‘C J Hatt’ with his unique high-energy approach to be a one-man pub covers band. Not content with that, his own material is at least as good as any of the ‘famous’ stuff he can deliver with real style, and he’ll more than likely do requests as well.
CJ Hatt repertoire ranges from old classics through to modern hits while keeping you guessing what’s coming next too! With such an extensive setlist CJ Hatt can accommodate most requests too so come along and get involved in what always proves to be a highly entertaining and high energy performance that sets CJ head and shoulders above other acoustic acts! Not to be missed!
