Alabama 3 (Acoustic) + Black Cat Bone

May 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The Pad Presents

The Alabama 3 (Acoustic) – Friday 3rd May – Bedford Esquires

We can’t wait to welcome Alabama 3 back to Esquires, their show back in 2017 was one of the highlights of the entire year!

Heeding Woodie Guthrie’s maxim, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology. Consequently, Alabama 3 acoustic is brave enough to go out on the road armed only with a battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie’s word that ‘this machine kills fascists.’

In homage to the classic delta blues slide players like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base (though not in that pantheon of greats), we present our own narco-acoustic slant on Alabama 3 and the music that has inspired us along the way.

Complete with Larry Love’s gravelly ash-stained vocals, Nick Reynolds bank robber melodies on harmonica, they provide a raucous show, which is in no way constrained by the boring maxim that often goes with acoustic gigs!

An unrivaled Marxist machine gun, Alabama 3 Acoustic are on a mission to get you mashed.
