Tickets £8

Highway Revisited play music from the 60s to the present.  But fair to say they are influenced by the Beatles, and play a fair few of their least heard songs. 

They also have a large selection of other songs by CSN, Springsteen, Dylan, Bryan Adams, Clapton, Eagles, Paul Weller, Foo Fighters, Neil Young, Paul Simon, Travelling Wilburys, Oasis, and many more, including some of their own songs.

Highway Revisited are Tom Sampson and Colin Bidgood.  Tom and Colin started out together in the mid 70s as a duo called Highway, then decided to add bass and drums.  This led to them playing at the Marquee club in a band called Shuffles,  which continued until the early 80s.

Tom and Colin bumped into each other in 2007 and decided to play together again, hence the name Highway Revisited. So, here they are still playing and enjoying themselves.

Mitchell and Vincent are an acoustic duo with guitars and fiddles.

And David and Graham make their own instruments.

Knowing that they are both guitar makers, you are asking “Do they play their own guitars?” Dave does indeed play a guitar he made, It’s a wonderful sounding nylon strung classical guitar with a cedar top – they’ve done so many gigs in the last few years that it’s starting to look a bit tatty – but luckily Dave has a couple more he’s made as spares for when the time comes to retire the old girl! Graham finally got round to making himself a violin, which is now one of his gigging violins. They're both making more instruments should you be interested in buying one.

And the music they play?  Take a listen at Mitchell and Vincent Music.
