The Roaring Donkey continues it mid week tradition of bringing the best of the national circuit to Swindon with the welcome return of Blind River Scare. Varying between a full band and a solo act, the compact nature of the venue means that it will be front man Tim Manning appearing as a solo act for this gig. But that doesn’t mean that it takes anything away from the show.
The same wonderful narrative songs, the same folk drives, melanchoic blues and alt-country swagger can be found here garnered together like a bunch of old world players driving toward a Nashville skyline, As they say, east is east and west is west …but when the twain does meet, you get music as great as this.
Music from 8.30pm Wednesday.
