We hope to re-schedule this show in 2021.

Plus special guest Ollie Wade

A warm welcome back to the Railway for Eileen Rose and her hot Nashville band.
“Like Lucinda Williams but with softer edges, Rose fuses country, honky tonk and smouldering pop into something all of her own.” – Time Magazine
“Makes you want to roar down the highway with the windows open and a finger on the repeat button.” – Rolling Stone
“She’s a woman hot-wired to her muse and and she knows exactly where her considerable talent is taking her.” – Uncut

Two very special house concerts with Robyn Hitchcock – rescheduled

Rescheduled to 18 and 19 September 2021. Tickets remain valid.

Supports:

18th: Lucy Kitchen

19th: Lucas and King

Two unique and intimate shows with one of the world’s most distinctive singer-songwriters. Hampshire connections make this a must, as Robyn performs in a house concert setting for just 35 people. This is a private show with all income going to the artist. To secure a place for one of the shows, you can make your contribution by getting your ticket here.

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme. 

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on April 21 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as a “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.” 

It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more. 

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone

“These 10 gems slither, rock, roll, glide and shapeshift, coalescing around Hitchcock’s typically anxious, strained but striking and immediately identifiable vocals.” – American Songwriter

“Beloved of everyone from Led Zeppelin to REM, Hitchcock has only enhanced his status with this wonderful outing.” – Hot Press

“Witty, moving and seriously catchy, Robyn Hitchcock is a glorious return for a man who wasn’t really gone in the first place.” – Paste Magazine

Railway 40 – a Double Show with the Felice Brothers on June 20 – rescheduled

RESCHEDULED

These shows have been rescheduled for June 19, 2021. All tickets remain valid.

There will be two shows at the Railway Inn in Winchester: an afternoon show at 2pm and an evening one at 8pm. You can buy an afternoon or evening ticket for £20 or a double ticket for both shows for £35. The shows will not be identical. Tickets will go on sale on January 17 at 10 am.

Cut live to tape with very little overdubbing, the new Felice Brothers album Undress was recorded in the late summer of 2018 in Germantown, New York. Band members Ian Felice, James Felice, Will Lawrence (drums) and Jesske Hume (bass) teamed up with producer Jeremy Backofen to record their most personal and reflective album to date.

Undress follows the band’s 2016 album Life In The Dark, and finds the group in a very different place three years later. Between personnel changes, families growing and the political landscape, the result is a tighter, more-paired down release. “Every song is a story,” said James Felice. “On this album everything was a bit more thoughtful, including the arrangements, the sonic quality and the harmonies.”

“Many of the songs on the new album are motivated by a shift from private to public concerns,” says songwriter Ian Felice. “It isn’t hard to find worthwhile things to write about these days, there are a lot of storms blooming on the horizon and a lot of chaos that permeates our lives. The hard part is finding simple and direct ways to address them.”
