Freeman’s Country Carvery + Special Guests

Freeman’s Country Carvery serves up a finger lickin’ feast of classic country tunes and songs from honky tonk heroes of the 1960’s and 70’s.

William The Conqueror

UK indie-rock trio William The Conqueror’s live performances have drawn wildly enthusiastic comparisons to Kings of Leon, Nirvana, Buffalo Tom and The Marshall Tucker Band. Latest album ‘Maverick Thinker’ (Chrysalis Records) has been described as “a record of cuts and bruises, wrapped within bittersweet leftfield rock n roll tunes – short, sharp shots to the […]

Martin Stephenson & John Perry

Martin Stephenson is one of the UK’s best-loved songwriter/musicians for over 35 years.

Early James

An eccentric troubadour who pulls from every strand of Americana, Early James blends country storytelling with blues changes, soulful grooves, and rock flourishes. This familiar yet fresh hybrid could be heard on Singing for My Supper, his 2020 debut album produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and released on his Easy Eye Sound […]

Kassi Valazza

Kassi Valazza has a viscous, light gold voice. It swirls around in your head like whiskey in a snifter; vaporous, and intoxicating. For most of Dear Dead Days pedal steel and electric guitar lope along at half time, the in pocket rhythm section booming from deep in the low end. Its frequencies penetrate your flesh. […]
