Description

Leigh Delamare & The Gordanos

The Leigh Delamere rhythm'n'blues folk boogie bonanza hits Redruth.


Led by the legendary multi-talented virtuoso of boogie-woogie piano, gypsy-jazz guitar, accordion musette, avant-garde violin - the hoarse hollerin’ Mr Leigh Delamere, a Gordanos set is a four-headed street racing joyride from the Penryn bayou taking in songs by Fats Domino, Dr John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, Huey ‘Piano’ Smith, Tom Waits, Albert Ammons, Jools Holland, Jerry-Lee Lewis, Washboard Sam, Johnny Cash, Sergio Mendes, Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry, and of course the Governor of Skiffle - Lonnie Donegan.

Occasionally throwing in some original material from their long since deleted ‘Poundland Boogie’ collection, LD & the Gordanos also take the trouble to retro-fit some generation-X era ‘modern’ music with some much-needed boogie-woogie piano, skiffle banjo and tarantella accordion - songs originally taken at a more sedate pace by Bruce Springsteen, Motorhead, Kraftwerk, Radiohead, David Bowie, Fun Boy Three, Happy Mondays, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Iggy Pop, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Rolling Stones, The Sonics, The Beatles, Madness and The Pogues.

Featured in Wed Magazine, the Gordanos have performed under various guises for many years. Leigh has toured the world tickling the ivories and pumping the bellows for “Bash Street Theatre” and “Rogue Theatre” and the band have played the infamous Glastonbury Bandstand, Boardmasters, Masked Ball, Bath Fringe, Small World and Big Session festivals, as well as Royal Palaces and National Trust stately homes.
