The Tone Takers – featuring BBC Antiques Roadshow’s Marc Allum

The Tone Takers will be landing at the Hollies Inn.

They play mostly blues ranging from Doc Watson to Chuck Berry plus some more laid back psychedelic songs!

The band’s experienced musicians are Marc Allum (Bass), Gerry Tinson (drums), Tony Seeger (slide guitar and mandolin), Robb Ladd (keyboards), Fred Guscott (guitar and bouzouki).

As you can see from the photo they are based in Chippenham.

We are delighted that the Hollies Inn are again supporting the Westbury Festival.

 

 

 

 

 

Many of you might think you recognise the bassist Marc Allum and perhaps wonder with which 80s SuperGroup he played?  But (although for all we know he may have played with a 80s SuperGroup ), we suspect that you actually recognise him for being one of the regular experts on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow covering miscellaneous items since 1998!

But when not looking for finds with the roadshow, his other passion is his music and when he visited the Festival last year in his role as an antique expert he told us he was keen to return with his band.

Please note: Marc will not be appraising antiques – unless you happen to have 1930s Slingerland guitar in which case he might tell you about it if you let him play it!

This event is free thanks to generous support of the Hollies Inn.
