A JAMMING weekend of music will entertain regulars and visitors at a Weston pub this weekend.

The Raglan Arms, in Upper Church Road, will play host to The Howlin Lord band on Saturday and Christian Walsh with Dominic Thatcher on Sunday.

Alone with an acoustic guitar or electrified, as will be the case this weekend and backed by a rhythm section of Mark Furnevall (bass) and Thomas Elgie (drums), Howlin Lord delivers heartworn country folk-rock as if Topanga Canyon was hidden somewhere in the English Westcountry.

Live, the band turns on a dime from haunting, atmospheric, balladry to blistering rock ’n’ roll hurricanes.

On Sunday audiences will see how over the past few years, Christian and Dominic have worked hard to mould their act’s sound to incorporate blues, jazz and funk soul elements into an acoustic pop setting.

Their set incorporates soulful pop originals, groovy blues covers, as well as modern covers to create a night for everyone, all mixed with some brilliant playing.
