Polly & The Billets Doux 18/08/12 Gracellie's IOW

Owlsworld Presents: Polly and the Billets Doux

Americana Folk Blues...oh yeah!  On Tour at Gracellie's Hotel, Shanklin, Isle of Wight on Saturday 18th August

Polly And The Billets Doux are something different! The genre-defiant quartet began life in the middle of a smoky Winchester venue’s back room in 2006, performing totally unamplified to a full-capacity audience. Their distinctive sound combines elements of blues, country, folk, soul and gospel to create a sumptuous and totally unique sound with a quintessentially English twist.

The band are known for their flawless and energy-filled live performances, and over the past couple of years they’ve embarked on headline tours up and down the country – from Ullapool to Brighton, and almost every city in between – and played to critical acclaim at festivals large and small, including Glastonbury, Loopallu, The Big Chill, Secret Garden Party, Larmer Tree and Cambridge Folk Festival.

The Gracellie Hotel, 25 Hope Road, Shanklin, Isle of Wight PO37 6ED

Doors Open at 7.30pm. Live Music from 8.30pm, plus DJ
