ARBA Autumn Blues at The Wheaty

Thanks to all who attended the sold out ARBA Presents 2021 Autumn Blues at the Wheatsheaf Hotel on Saturday 27th of March!

The one-off line-up featuring Gwyn Ashton, Dave Rhodes, Paul Macleod, Michael Winter, Craig Lauristen with a cameo appearance from Gini Hobson, treated us to a brilliant evening of music. So much talent on the stage throughout the night! Thanks to all at The Wheaty and the ARBA volunteers who made the show possible and such a great night.

Stay tuned for an announcement re our next seasonal show at the fabulous Wheaty, Winter Blues on August 14.
