"The Flint Street Nativity" by Tim Firth


A comedy about children for adults.


Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker.

The John Fairhurst Band
Free Before 9pm… £4 after.
Free all night with a valid NUS or Telford’s membership card.

Wigan native Fairhurst has been honing his craft on the road combining his passions for people and music for years. The result is an awe inspiring wall of sound rooted in his northern blues background with gritty mournful deep-south attitude and a voice to carry it home.

Introduced to Sarod Master K. Sridhar at the age of 5 when he stayed with John’s family, John’s music has a distinctly eastern feel, with influences from the Sarod Master as well as his own travels through Asia. With a bottle-neck style blues referencing the likes of Son House and Bukka White, comparisons to the fingerpicking of John Fahey, a leaning towards the psychedelic 60’s rock of Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and the ever present influence of K. Sridhar and Indian raga, John’s music is a real melting-pot of diverse musical traditions freely hand picking tunes from the Mississippi to the Ganges.

John Fairhurst truly epitomises the modern day wandering blues man. Stories of hunger, listlessness, roaming and reckless abandon are just a prelude to John’s story, something that can only be fully understood in the presence of the man. John tells stories of wading into the sea off the New Zealand coast to smash raw oysters off rocks simply to get something to eat, but fortunately times have changed. He has since gone on to tour the globe, eat moderately well and entertain crowds at illustrious festivals such as SXSW, Glastonbury and Tarragona blues festival (Headlining slot) to name but a few. John’s enigmatic stories relayed through intense and original blues are all told using his trademark howling vocals; think Captain Beefheart meets Tom Waits.

John’s wanderlust character, lead him to New York in 2009 where he arrived with only a bag of clothes and his beloved resonator. He met a fellow blues player and proceeded to arrange and perform 14 sell out shows in a 15 days, a feat demonstrating what a gifted performer John truly is. Bare chested and tattooed (by monks in a Thai temple), when John Fairhurst walks onto a stage you know you are not only about to hear incredible blues, but the tale of one mans tireless journey leaving a lasting impression wherever he stops.

With three independent albums under his belt, he has garnered critical acclaim with The Guardian describing his 2008’s instrumental  debut album ‘Joys of Spring’ as “Truly exquisite”. His following releases 2010’s ‘John Fairhurst Band’ and 2012’s ‘Hungry Blues’ were also hailed in similar manner.

Coupled with his tenacious attitude to touring and following a summer of explosive live shows both in the UK and Europe, John has built on previous festival appearances at Glastonbury, SXSW, Green Man and Edinburgh Festival to widen his audience with appearances at Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Boomtown as well as with residencies on the Harley Davidson European Tour and a tour with Johnny Winter as well as a series of shows over the Christmas period and into next year. 2014 looks bright in John Fairhurst world with a Spring release to show case new songs, a new band and an electrifying new sound.

His work ethic onstage is reflected in his creative process with collaborations over the years with African Kora master Sekou Kouyate, Joe Driscoll (local posse), world champion beatboxers Reeps One and Bellatrix and underpinned by stickman James Breen and beatbox blues duo HeyMoonShaker.

Currently in the studio following a gruelling 200+ shows across 8 countries John is preparing for a busy few months with the release of his new electric album set for Spring 2014. Recording sessions are taking place between Bristol and London’s Dean Street Studios. With Nathan Lewis and Alex Beitzke at the helm engineering and producing, John is accompanied by old faithfuls Joe Strouzer on harp, Toby Murray on drums with the addition of new band member Luke Barter on Bass. The new album is a full on electric blues experience with John unleashing his virtuoso technique on some of his favourite guitars…. There’s a new sound and a whole lot of shows to come.

This is the sound of modern British blues….
