Band on the Wall presents a series of free entry gigs and DJ sets on our second stage, located to the rear of our brand new bar. We’ll be shining a light on our favouring emerging artists across all genres with a diverse programme of global sounds from, and inspired by, the music of cultures from around the world.
A skilled guitarist and singer drawing influence from instrumentalists such as Andy Mckee and John Gomm, Joel Gardner’s songs stem from elaborate, groove orientated guitar work. His music transcends its traditional roots with a modern twist.
With a live show honed by relentless gigging; Joel won the ‘Danny Kyle Award’ at Celtic Connections, Wath Festival’s ‘Young Performer Of The Year Award’ and ‘Manchester’s Got Busker Talent.’ His successes have seen him support Mull Historical Society and Bernard Butler, Brian Kennedy, All The Luck In The World and US chart topping band ‘The Revivalists’ on their first UK tour, including a set right here at Band on the Wall back in 2019!
