The Noels Arms: ‘Lil Roosters’ 4pm (Acoustic Cajon, Blues, Americana, Zydeco)

‘Lil’ Rooster’s’, Chris Hall and Hazel Scott, make up the front end of the Award winning 5- piece international band, ‘The Cajun Roosters’. Both have toured with the best Louisiana musicians out there. Chris (vocals, accordion, harmonica) has collaborated with pop royalty– Paul McCartney, Dave Gilmour, Bill and Kate Bush; while Hazel (rhythm guitar, vocals) has appeared with the likes of with Tom Paxton and Donnie Munro (of Runrig fame). Relishing the excitement of playing more intimate sessions, as a duo, they are well known for playing in much-loved venues in and around their home town of Derby. It’s their first time at the Noel Arms and they promise to bring their lively musical mix of Americana, bluesy Louisiana swamp with a Cajun twist on some old familiars! An authentic new ‘Bayou-Brit’ sound that may surprise but definitely delight!

The Geese and Fountain (Croxton Kerrial): ‘CJ Hatt’ 5pm (Acoustic versions of Classic Songs)

It’s only the awesome Mr ‘C J Hatt’, making a very welcome return to the Geese and Fountain to blow us all away with his unique high-energy approach to being 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.

So put on your dancing shoes and your loudest shirt and let’s have a party!

‘CJ Hatt’ has a passion for pure acoustic music and this shows in his performance. He plays a wide variety of music, from old classics to modern hits with some curve balls thrown in too. His different take on songs and ability make any song sound great acoustically makes him stand out as a unique & talented act. You will see and hear why he stands out from the usual acoustic singers when you see him live! Not to be missed!
