    'YanniH Arts Promotion' presents, LIVE IN THE HYST...

    Arthur Ebeling... Rock 'n Roll star from Amsterdam performing with the UK's Chris Quinn
     
    Two superb guitars & voices playing a timeless & catchy mix of Rhythm 'n Blues, Swing, Rock 'n Roll & Soul... in a jazzy sauce!
     
     
    Known in music circles as 'a bit of a character' (!) & for his entertaining performances, Arthur Ebeling is nevertheless VERY serious about his music. Endorsed by the famous 'Gretsch' guitar company, he is one of their 'flag-ship' players, recognised worldwide as one of the best exponents of the famous Gretsch 'sound' & one of the most authentic performers of 50s/early 60s rock 'n roll. His guitar playing is completely unique, sounding like a mix of Chet Atkins & Eddie Cochran, with jazzy embellishments & some Latin thrown in for good measure! Blessed with a bluesy voice to match, it's easy to assume that Arthur Ebeling is from New Orleans rather than Amsterdam!
     
    A long established recording artist with eight CDs to his name (including many original songs), Arthur Ebeling has made numerous television appearances, toured all over the world & opened shows for artists like Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Ann Peebles and Joan Armatrading. He has even performed with the legendary Scotty Moore... Elvis Presley's first (& best!) guitarist!!
     
    "With Ray Charles, Arthur Ebeling shares his soul, with Tom Waits his rawness & with Eddie Cochran his Rock'n Roll. He is one of the best guitarists of our country" (Amsterdam Telegraph)
     

    Alongside Arthur will be his long-time musical buddy, Shrewsbury based singer/songwriter, the incredibly versatile, Chris Quinn. Reviewing his debut solo release "Across The Divide", Maverick Magazine named Chris, "A Master of the Acoustic Guitar & a quality Songwriter". With over a decade's experience touring worldwide playing solo & duo shows, Chris Quinn also regularly performs with some of the world's finest gypsy jazz musicians in prestigious venues such as London's Royal Albert Hall.

    “This is an excellent show - amongst the top that I have seen over the past several days at the 2017 Fringe festival. The script is well-written with humorous plot(s) and many funny jokes. The actors do a great job with their characters and deliver their lines in a well-timed manner. This show reminds me of Fawlty Towers. Highly recommended!” - Brian Sullivan, Audience review

    American recording-artist, Dean Friedman, announces a ‘40th Anniversary, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’ tour, to mark the 40th Anniversary of the 1978 release of his best-selling, critically acclaimed, classic album, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’.

    American recording artist, Dean Friedman, best known to UK & Ireland audiences for his classic hits, ‘Lucky Stars’, ‘Lydia’, ‘McDonald’s Girl’, ‘Ariel’, and ‘Woman of Mine’, announces his ‘40th Anniversary, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’ tour, a 40+ city UK/Ireland tour, running April through August 2018, to mark the 40th Anniversary of the 1978 release of his best-selling, critically acclaimed, classic album, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’.

    The “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’ album contains some of Friedman’s biggest chart hits, including ‘Lucky Stars’, ‘Lydia’ and the title track, ‘Rocking Chair’. Friedman will mark the milestone by performing the entire album ‘live’, along with fan favorites from his four decade career.

    Tickets to all of Friedman’s tour dates, as well as his CD and book catalog, can be purchased direct via www.DeanFriedman.com .

    Friedman’s ‘40th Anniversary, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’ tour follows on the heels of the release of his latest studio album, ’12 Songs’. The critically acclaimed, fan-funded recording further confirms Friedman’s status as one of the pre-eminent songwriters of his generation.

     

    Friedman’s recent tours and recordings continue to garner rave reviews: “Every song in this show is a classic.” (London Theatre Guide), Songsmith Extraordinaire” – (Music Week), “Stunning Musicianship” (HotPress), “Dean Friedman is entirely unique and utterly brilliant!” – (ThreeWeeks)… are just a few of the superlatives used to describe his unique and original talent.

    In addition to his familiar radio hits, album releases and touring, Friedman composes and produces music soundtracks for TV and film, including the music to the hit Central TV series BOON and NBC’s Eerie Indiana. He’s also published a respected tome on the art and craft of songwriting titled, ‘The Songwriter’s Handbook’ (The Artists League), based on the ‘Songwriting Workshops’ and ‘Songwriting Masterclasses’ he’s conducted at universities and music conservatories around the world, including L.I.P.A. (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts).

    This year marks Friedman’s 15th appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where in addition to his regular concert runs, he’s written and produced several hit children’s musicals, including ‘Smelly Feet’ – a children’s musical that really stinks!

    Friedman has faced his share of controversy in recent years: The Merseyside band, Half Man Half Biscuit released a best-selling EP containing a track entitled, ‘The Bastard Son of Dean Friedman’, which went to #1 on the UK Indie chart; a claim which Friedman vehemently denies, ‘I’ve never even met Nigel Blackwell’s mum!’. Friedman extracts his revenge on his recent CD, ‘Submarine Races’, in the song, 'A Baker's Tale', the hitherto untold story of Nigel Blackwell's dubious origins.

    Though Friedman's single, ‘McDonald's Girl’, was officially banned by the BBC for mentioning the name of the well known fast food restaurant in its chorus, the irrepressible pop song has been covered by a number of contemporary bands including top-selling, Canadian group, Barenaked Ladies (WEA), and The Blenders (Universal), whose version soared to #1 on the national airplay charts in Norway. With the advent of YouTube, video versions have gone viral and finally, thirty five years after the song was banned by the BBC, the McDonald’s corporation officially licensed the song for a national TV/Radio campaign, confirming the song as a pure pop phenomenon.

    One of Friedman's recent tours was almost cancelled when it was announced that his tour sponsor www.goldenseeds.co.uk would distribute packets of cannabis seeds to the first ten people that purchased CD's at each of Friedman's gigs. The controversy was only resolved after Friedman promised not to distribute the seeds within 50 yards of the venue premises. (click to see Songwriter's Cannabis Controversy).

    Friedman will be performing solo, on guitar and keyboards, featuring songs from throughout his 4 decade recording career, including familiar radio hits, ‘Lucky Stars’, ‘Lydia’, ‘McDonald’s Girl’, ‘Ariel’ and ‘Woman of Mine’, as well as selections from his newest album, ’12 Songs’. Discover what legions of devoted fans have known for years - the sophisticated, funny and profound work of a master songsmith.
