The Unravelling Wilburys
Chapel Arts CentreMENU
This top tribute show is more than just a tribute! They are the ‘complete package’, a great combination of brilliant musicianship, tongue in cheek humour and rave reviews throughout the UK, the band play their songs in their familiar country-rock style whilst stealing a few choice numbers from those famous five icons, Messrs Orbison, Harrison, Dylan, Petty and Lynne!
The brilliant Unravelling Wilburys with tongue in cheek hilarity are made up of Sticky Willy, Thumper, Blind Melon, Walter and Honky Tonk Wilbury, ‘the real Wilbury brothers’! They grew up in Appalachian shacks and first presented their songs in Nashville back in 1987. Their show tells the story of how their songs were stolen (allegedly) by Messrs Orbison, Harrison, Dylan, Petty and Lynne at Nashville’s Tootsies Bar and the hard road they had to tread to get ‘em back.
Listen to “Handle With Care”; “End Of The Line”; “The Devil’s Been Busy”; “Tweeter And The Monkey Man”; “Heading For The Light”; “Mr Tambourine Man”; “If Not For You”; “Pretty Woman”; “Mr Blue Sky”; “Here Comes The Sun”; “I Won’t Back Down”; “Runaway”; “Running Down A Dream”; “Learning To Fly”; “Refugee” and many others.
“Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”
“Thank you all for a sensational performance last night, it was musicianship of extraordinary talent from you all”
