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. Influences In no particular order: Neil Young, Richard Thompson, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Big Star, Creedence Clearwater Revival, 10cc, Bonzo Dog Doodah Band, Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, The Band, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Nic Jones, Howlin' Wolf, The Jayhawks, The Kinks, Wilco, Chris Wood, The Waterboys, Led Zeppelin, Ronnie Lane, Dr Feelgood, Crazy Horse, Crowded House, Martin Simpson, Loudon Wainwright III, Brendan Benson, Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, Gomez, Maria McKee, Hank Williams, Cream, Bill Monroe, Pentangle, Muddy Waters, Stax, Electric Shed et cetera, et cetera, et cetera! .
