MUSICAL double bills don’t come much more enjoyable than the one being hosted by Ilminster Arts Centre on Friday, June 15.

Featuring the combined talents of two Bath based outfits - the Curfew Crew and the Gaulois Brothers, - the evening offers a delicious mix of country, folk and blues with Hot Parisian style ‘Django’ jazz.

The Curfew Crew take their name from the Curfew pub in Bath, where they have been resident for the past 7 years.

As well as 3-part harmony singing their music includes guitar, slide guitar, dobro guitar, blues harmonica, blues/boogie piano, bass, and sometimes mandolin and violin.

Their musical style ranges from the 1930’s with pieces by Mississippi John Hurt and Fred McDowell, to the 1950’s pieces by Jimmy Reed and others of that era, to the more contemporary styles of J.J.Cale, Ry Cooder, and Creedence Clearwater.

The Gaulois Brothers have been described as a ‘swinging, jazz guitar party’.

With an almost reckless insistence on real, in the moment improvisation they are no purists, but the legendary Gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt is definitely an inspiration for them.

The swinging rhythms and exciting sound of the Maccaferri guitars make for a great atmosphere evoking Gypsy campsites and Parisian cafés and nightspots.

Their repertoire includes swing standards, musettes, bossas, Russian, East European and Hungarian Gypsy tunes as well as original compositions and many pieces by Django himself.

Advance booking is recommended for this eclectic evening of live music.

The gig starts at 8pm Tickets:£15 (pre-show supper £15 at 7pm, must be pre-booked)
