Eaglescliffe’s Waiting Room is not only one of the finest purveyors of vegetarian cuisine in the region, it’s also a hotbed for live music talent. If you’re looking for something folky or in the blues vein, then you can’t go wrong with catching one of the many acts they host on a regular basis. One of the Waiting Room’s favourite duos, Serious Sam Barrett and David Broad, are returning to the venue on Sunday 25th January.

Drawing on pre-war Americana and traditional English folk, the pair energise the traditional genres with a contemporary twist. Broad’s latest LP Never Can Tell combines stunning original material with Americana classics from artists such as John Henry and Pretty Polly. Meanwhile, Barrett’s own album Any Road has been earning some serious critical acclaim thanks to its country-blues tilt and heart-rending songwriting.

On the night, the pair will be playing two sets and helping each other out with their tunes. Expect a whirlwind of fast, finger-picking fun.

Serious Sam Barrett and David Broad play at The Waiting Room, Eaglescliffe on Sunday 25th January.
