Singer-songwriter heads to Stables in Wavendon


American singer songwriter Jimmy Webb headlines The Stables this weekend.

Webb has influenced generations of musicians worldwide from Billy Joel to John Mayer and Keith Urban to Rumer.

He has topped the country, disco and pop music charts and remains a trailblazer among songwriters 50 years after his first hit.

The man behind songs including Worst That Could Happen and The Highwayman will be performing hits from his multi-platinum playlist, accompanied with tales of the inspiration behind some of the songs. Webb plays the venue in Wavendon on Saturday, April 11.

Doors open at 8pm, tickets cost £22.50 before fees.

On Sunday, The Blockheads return to the region to headline the venue.

Formed in 1977 by Ian Dury, The Blockheads are now fronted by Derek Hussey, who was the late singer’s best friend.

The legendary Brit-funkers will be playing all the old favourites along with some new material.

Doors open at 8pm, ticket cost £21.50 in advance before fees.
