Go between the lines at All Saints Church

by | 5 January 2020 | Gainsborough, Music

Plans for a varied programme of concerts at All Saints Church, Gainsborough, for 2020 are well underway and they start off the year with local Lincolnshire band, Between the Lines. They will be entertaining at the church, on Church Street, Gainsborough DN21 2JR on Saturday 18th January at 7.30pm, doors open at 6.45pm. Parking is available in the church car park, at the back of the Plough Business Hub, 37 Church Street, Gainsborough DN21 2RP, Roseway car park, DN21 2BE and on Gladstone Street and Church Street.

Between the Lines have long been a staple of the Lincolnshire folk and acoustic scene, playing both cover versions of their favourite artists, and their own songs, which have in turn been sung and recorded by such luminaries as the late Vin Garbutt, who included ‘The Fallen of Fulstow’ on his final CD.

Vin’s performance of the song (often as his encore) inspired the playwright Gordon Steel to write the play ‘The Fulstow Boys’, which toured theatres to great acclaim last year.

Phil Biggs, John Blanks and Mark Addison recruited Dave Tucker into their ranks a couple of years ago. Phil and Mark already played with Dave in the country/rock band ‘Crossing the Tracks’, and this has, as you might expect, lent an intriguing air of Americana to the four-piece.

Phil, John and Dave are great aficionados of acoustic instruments, and between them play various guitars, mandola, whistle, mandocello, bouzouki, dobro, banjo and slide guitar…although Dave takes responsibility for most of these. This is all underpinned by Mark’s bass guitar.

Tickets are £8.00 each; accompanied school children and college students (with ID) are free. Tickets are available from the café based in the church; which is open from Monday to Saturday, 10.30am to 2.00pm. They can also be ordered, collected and paid for on the night, by texting 07910 276082 and they will also be available on the door.
