AJ Clarke is hilarious, serious, compassionate, irreverent, brave, challenging, and a proper guitarist with an instantly recognisable voice. He remains one of the best and most engaging performers in the country.
Dave Pegg is an English multi-instrumentalist and record producer, arguably most visible as a bass guitarist. He is the longest-serving member of the pre-eminent British folk rock band Fairport Convention and has been bassist with a number of important folk and rock groups including The Ian Campbell Folk Group and Jethro Tull. He has appeared on some of the most significant albums of his era, as well as undertaking solo projects.

Thursday 6th December
The Dylan Project
Doors: 7pm - Music: 7.30pm
Tickets: £20 - Available here or Mostly Books, 36 Stert Street, Abingdon, OX14 3JP (cash only)
Take four of Britain’s most talented folk-rock musicians and a unique singer, add the repertoire of a genius, and you’ve got the recipe for a dream band.
The musicians in question are PJ Wright (slide and electric guitars, pedal steel) Gerry Conway (drums and percussion) Phil Bond (keys) Dave Pegg (bass) and singer Steve Gibbons. As ‘The Dylan Project’, they present an exhilarating tribute to the work of arguably the greatest postwar songwriter in the English language.
The Dylan Project’s repertoire spans the whole of Dylan’s oeuvre – everything from Highway 61 to Mississippi – and new material is frequently brought into the setlist. Whether you are a diehard Dylan fan or just enjoy great songs performed with flair and brio, The Dylan Project will take your breath away.
