Duke Garwood | Future Yard

We are thrilled to be welcoming acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Duke Garwood onto our stage on 22nd February 2023 in support of his 7th studio album ‘Rogues Gospel’, released in October 2022. While Garwood’s own music is rooted in the blues, generating a dark and spectral sound full of late-night atmosphere on albums like 2009’s ‘The Sand That Falls’ and 2014’s Heavy Love – working with other artists, he’s dipped his toes into everything from soul horns to moody electronics. Now on ‘Rogues County’, Garwood creates music without inhibition, open and positive. They’re songs with a framework created with percussion and organ as the bed, with extra instruments being added as the compositions took shape. Crafted expertly in the studio, the tracks transfer seamlessly to the live arena, performed by a live band featuring John J Presley on bass, Paul V may on drums and percussion, and of course, Duke Garwood on guitar, vocals, keys, clarinet and saxophone. Experience it live with us on 22.02.23.

Tickets on sale now.

“In the deep summer heat wave of 20, when everything was closed and people were closed and hiding, I hit the road west to join my brother in music in his place, bungalow magic.
We knew we had to play, for our souls, for the soul of humanity, to bring down the machine and tyranny, to invite the angels in, to save our selves from insanity.
Play we did, the guitars detuned until the bees wings would make the strings sing.
We began with the drum, and the the things that shake and rattle, the drones of the heat, we sweated and we worked it until the night calmed us.
This is not a lock down album, for we were free in our spirits when this was created, free from any desires to conquer and fill our pockets with the booty of success.
This is a heat soaked fever dream of our soul nectar in sonic form.”
