In celebration of my almost wholly unexpected 70 years on Planet Earth and just a few of the amazing musicians I have worked with and who have become my very good friends.
All proceeds over and above gig costs will go to ‘Simon on the Streets’, a West Yorkshire charity offering street based support for those in need. I am funding 50% of the costs from my own resources – every penny donated once costs are met will go to the charity.

Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. Having spent years toiling in the musical sweatshops of the industrial north, Eller uprooted his family and resettled in some faded, tobacco town in the North Carolina Piedmont to begin the arduous task of assembling a new version of his band, The American Circus. A brutish and inelegant rock & roll outfit specializing in banjo music for funerals, gospel tunes for atheists and novelty dance fads for amputees. Imagine a lavish, Hollywood, dance sequence unfolding on the floor of a Chicago meatpacking plant in 1894.
A Leeds favourite, this is your chance to see Curtis on his 2017 UK tour.
If you have not heard of The Captain, that might just be the point! These are the lost stories and the hidden gems, much like The Captain himself! He revels in the underground, the magical unseen, the mystical otherworldly-ness of realms often overlooked and consigned to the shadows.
The Lost Waves show has been described as a ‘Pixar-esque journey’, keeping all suitably stimulated with a variety of mediums & moods. A timeless troubadour, creating a concoction of music & interactive, intuitive performance… No gig is ever the same. Come, be amazed mystified and uplifted.
