                                              we're pleased to welcome back 

                                      THE MATT CARTER QUARTET


  MATT CARTER has performed various styles of music all over the country (and occasionally abroad)….            jazz, soul, funk, blues, pop and musical theatre.

   He was part of the Mama Stone’s (Exeter) house band for over three years,and has given public               performances at prestigious venues such as the 606 Jazz Club, The Boisdale Canary Wharf and                   The Stables (Milton Keynes).    

  He has performed with soul singers Joss Stone, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight and Angelo Starr.                 Highlights with Joss Stone included a TV performance on the Alan Titchmarsh Show and a performance       at The European Parliament in Brussels.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       He is currently studying Jazz Piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

  LEIGH COLEMAN is synonymous with soul music in the UK. This young musician based in the South West     has a style astonishingly reminiscent of the classic soul artists of the 60′s and 70′s, whilst maintaining         a sense of modernity and freshness.                     

  His notoriety as an artist has risen with remarkable alacrity over the last couple of years...seeing him       travel around the UK and Europe singing with and supporting Joss Stone, Solomon Burke, and                   performances alongside Sandie Shaw, Beverly Knight and Ronnie Scotts,  Natalie Williams.


  On Saturday, Matt & Leigh will be joined by TOM DREWETT– guitar and LUCA CARUSO – drums.


                            What a smashing evening on Saturday 3rd November

                                       THE JAKE LEG JUG BAND!

                      It was a lot of fun - the music was great and we were all impressed

                              with Liam who not only played the jug and the harmonica, but found 

                                         the energy to sing - and do some fancy footwork!!!

    Here are some of the comments afterwards......

   “Fantastic evening.  We loved it”. Ann
   “I really enjoyed tonight it really lifted me up”.  Liz
   “What a memorable evening courtesy of the Jake Leg Jug Band. 

    The skittle alley was full of smiling, happy people. I so enjoyed the music that I 

    bought one of the CDs and it is playing as I write.

    If you do Music Day again in 2020 or 2021, it would be lovely if they could be included.”  Hilary

 The best route to take is from the A35 between Axminster and Honiton.

 Turn off the A35 at Andrewshayes Holiday Park (EX13 7DY) and then immediately Right (to Dalwood)

  After 3/4 mile,  T junction, turn Left (to Dalwood).

  After 1/4 mile,  Crossroads turn Right into the Village.

  The Tuckers is on the RHS.  Car Park is opposite, up an alley.

The Tuckers Arms is in the centre of Dalwood

 EX13 7EG - on the north side of the A35

                 Excellent food & a warm welcome!
