DoveTales are fronted by chief vocalists and songwriters, Stef Rose (formerly of The Sylvias and Wild Ginger) and Happy Mondays/Hippy Mafia guitarist Johnny Evans. With their roots in Scandinavia and Mancunia respectively, the pair’s cultural exchange of contrasting, yet complimentary vocal styles, lyrical turns-of-phrase and artistic-inspirations shape the heart of DoveTales’ nuanced palette. Accompanied by the capable rhythmic pedigree of drummer Chris Joyce (perhaps best known for his work with the Durutti Column, The Mighty Wah!, and Simply Red), plus former Hollie Cook bassist Victor “Fela” Freeman on bass, the band come together with one pure resonance to land upon a a sound of soaring fullness and warming depth. Having first met through previous project The Sylvias back in 2008, for Stef, Johnny and Chris, in many ways DoveTales represents a coming together of old friends with a newfound sense for musical adventure. 

The upcoming final edition of the Lamplight Sessions on 6th December 2019 promises to be a bumper pre-Christmas special. The evening will be hosted by none-other than CP Lee. A bona-fide legend around these parts, Lee, is a musician, author, broadcaster and lecturer who has more than made his mark on the Manchester scene over the last five decades. From his "snuff-rock" musical Sleak in 1977, to his work with John Scott in Gerry & the Holograms, to his memorable memoir When We Were Thin (2007); Lee has seen and done it all, and promises to be the perfect compere for the evening. Fine support for the evening also comes from the very talented Emma Mould who will be playing an acoustic set. Hand-picked by DoveTales for the occasion, Emma is an essential new singer-songwriter who spins an eclectic mix of folk, gospel, and rock into her bewitching compositions.

And being the season for goodwill and charitable giving, The Eagle Inn show will be in support of Forever Manchester: a charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester, helping local people do extraordinary things together. Look out for a special Tombola run by Forever Manchester only in the December edition of the Lamplight Sessions, with a top prize being a trip to New York (to be drawn 13th Dec), as well as donation buckets at the venue.

NOT TO BE MISSED! PLEASE LEND YOUR SUPPORT.
