Country & Western

Country music is a blend of popular musical forms originally found in the Southern United States and the Appalachian Mountains. It has roots in traditional folk music, Celtic music, blues, gospel music, hokum, and old-time music and evolved rapidly in the 1920s. The term country music began to be used in the 1940s when the earlier term hillbilly music was deemed to be degrading, and the term was widely embraced in the 1970s, while country and western has declined in use since that time, except in the United Kingdom and Ireland, where it is still commonly used.

Tonto's Headband

Tonto's Headband is a NEW, exciting 6 piece live music band covering songs in Country / Country Rock / Americana styles. Formed in 2015, we each have a wealth of experience performing with various bands and musicians, both locally and internationally. Our choice of music reflects the musical genres that are of particular interest to members of the band, and although not strictly a 'traditional' Country & Western band, our music is predominantly Country based, with occasional excursions into Blues and Southern Rock, delivered in our own inimitable style. We believe therefore that we have, for our audience, 'something for everyone'. Artistes whose material we cover include; Martina McBride / BR549 / Travelling Wilburys / Dixie Chicks / Ry Cooder / John Fogerty / Jackson Browne / Tanya Tucker / The Allman Brothers Band / Hank Williams / Tennessee Ernie Ford / Boy Howdy / Lynyrd Skynyrd / Eric Clapton / Darius Rucker / Patty Loveless / Vince Gill / Waylon Jennings + many more.

Gavin D Sweeney

Gavin D. Sweeney dreams in melodies and often wakes up humming the beginnings of a new musical creation and the lyrics are forming before his left foot has stepped into the kitchen to flick the kettle on. Gavin finds inspiration for songs in everyday conversations, observations of people, throwaway quips, and in the poetry of both city and country life.

The Pat Winn Country Combo

Whilst most people his age were growing up listening to the likes of Duran Duran and Spandau ballet, Pat preferred spinning his Dad’s extremely scratched records of Marty Robbins and Hank Locklin. Born in Great Yarmouth, he assumed that the Dukes of Hazzard was a serious documentary, and that everyone in Bakersfield drove around with an ape. Since his first appearance with the wonderful East Anglian country band The Plainsmen, Pat has gone on to perform nationally and internationally, with a recent mini tour of Nashville which included dates at the Sutler and Tootises. The Pat Winn Country Combo brings you REAL country music. The likes of Willie, Merle and Waylon. They will also bring you the sounds of Alan Jackson, George Strait and Dwight Yoakam. That’s what we call modern country music!
