THE UNRAVELLING WILBURYS
Saturday 28th August 2021 – 19.30hrs
The Unravelling Wilburys, a band of good ‘ol boys, turn their skills and replicate the sound and songs of the late 80’s ‘super-group’ The Traveling Wilburys where five of the greatest names in rock music history came together…George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne of ELO…and completed two Wilburys albums, Volumes One and Three though, sadly, Roy Orbison had passed away before Volume Three was recorded.
So…welcome to Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Honky Tonk… The Unravelling Wilburys. In a former guise as top Beatles project, Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, (The Flab Five), they had toured for 21 years playing at UK festivals, including Glastonbury, and at theatres and music venues across Europe and the UK. They also headlined at a Beatles festival at Montgomery, Alabama.
The set list includes Wilbury songs such as: End Of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Last Night, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, Heading For The Light…And choice cuts such as: Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman (Jeff Lynne’s ELO), I Won’t Back Down, Running Down A Dream (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan), Here Come’s The Sun (George Harrison)…and many more. All great songs in the Country/Rock genres and plenty of humour throughout!
”Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”
