So if you were fans of Holy Moly and the Crackers and 3 Daft Monkeys then this is one for you!
Sheelanagig for over a decade have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – added with the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic which is inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their interestingly arranged original pieces.
ANOTHER FOOT STOMPING NIGHT AT ACAPELA STUDIO!
22ND MAY 2019
Ever since I first heard Tom Baxter he was high on my list to get to perform at Acapela. It would seem “Dreams do come true” as when the news came through that he was touring and he had agreed to come to Acapela it was a concert I had longed to see.
Expect a unique emotional performance – superb musicianship and the most amazing voice…Acapela was made for him!
I can promise you a special evening with one of the UK’s finest singers.
As you will know I am not easily pleased! So he must be good… take a listen to the track below and then you will want to go buy his back catalogue…just as I did!

Jesus Jones formed at the end of 1988, and quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting and innovative acts of their time. They were one of the first bands to successfully blend rock and dance music, using samples and beats over catchy, commercial pop songs.
Their first album, 1989’s “Liquidizer” with it’s singles “Never Enough” and “Info Freako” saw them tour the UK and Europe, wowing critics and fans with a high-energy live show that was to become the band’s trademark.
Within a year, things really started to happen. When it was first released, at the start of 1991,their second album “Doubt” quickly became a phenomenon. It entered the UK charts at number one, and gave the band their first gold disc.
This was driven by the single “Right Here, Right Now”, which was a huge MTV hit (it was, at the time, the longest-running video on their playlist, ever), and was on constant rotation at virtually every radio station across the country. The single reached number one, and still remains an anthem to this day.
The album also spawned a number of other huge worldwide hits, including “International Bright Young Thing”, and “Who? Where? Why?” and the band were awarded an MTV award for “Best New Artist”, as well as being nominated for a Grammy.
