Acoustic Originals returns to Quay Arts Cafe

A superb line-up of artists awaits visitors to the Quay Arts Cafe this evening (January 28th), with Acoustic Originals returning for the first time in 2013.

The event is a mash-up of fantastic acoustic acts that will perform live for guests, including singer/songwriter Sam Sheasby - a crowd favourite at Quay Arts, who has been influenced by John Mayer and Tom Petty in particular - otherworldly poet Hester Chambers and guitar-picking roots musician Sam Green.

Other acts that are set to grace the stage are Black Cat Blues Club owner Damien Paul and self-confessed "crazy" five-piece Duveaux.

According to frontman Dan Duveaux: "There are many rumours as to how the band formed but it appears that the most plausible story is that the individual band members awoke one fine day in early September 2012 - after experiencing a vision that visited them in their sleep - and simply knew what they had to do."

Hoping to kick off the new year on a high, Acoustic Originals is free to get in to and promises to be a fun-packed night for all. The doors and bar at Quay Arts Cafe will open from 19:00 GMT and acts will begin taking to the stage from 20:00.

Meanwhile, the Isle of Wight County Press reports this week will also witness the return of Rob da Bank's monthly Music Club at Quay Arts, with tomorrow night's event to feature the "funky rhymes" of Too Many T's.

The Music Club will also be taking place at Quay Arts and has been created by the Bestival organiser to help promote young musical talent on the Isle of Wight.

Guests will be treated to tutorials on songwriting, rap, production and playing, while also being given the chance to perform live and record their creations for Isle of Wight Radio and Bestival.tv.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801530008-ADNFCR
