Mr Apollo FREE
Mr Apollo are, Pete Holder (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Paul Miller (viola, vocals), Ian Rushbury (vocals, bass) and Craig Shipley (drums, vocals). They have played together for over 25 years in some of the Midlands’ most innovative bands – from indie darlings Little Red Schoolhouse to the psychedelic folk-rock of Druidspear. Combining a wealth of influences from the worlds of blues, rock, folk and country, with a healthy dollop of self-effacing humour thrown in, you can guarantee that no two Mr Apollo gigs are the same, with classic (and often unlikely) covers mixed with cleverly crafted original material.
