TIME TO SHEIK A LEG

GIGS

The New Sheiks

Leigh Barker's New Sheiks ... on tour.

Yes, it’s time to get off the couch. Double bassist Leigh Barker is touring Australia with his band The New Sheiks, featuring Heather Stewart on vocals and violin.

Tonight is band’s second tour gig at Bennetts Lane before it heads off north to Ballarat and beyond. The Sheiks are travelling far and will call in at Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival on the weekend before the Cup.

Both the touring band and The New Sheiks CD feature Leigh on the double bass, Eamon McNelis on trumpet, Don Stewart on trombone, Matt Boden on piano and piano accordion and Al McGrath-Kerr on drums.

Travelling with the band will be renowned Melbourne-based blues singer Heather Stewart. Heather won the Vic/Tas Blues Awards for best debut album in 2011 and best female artist, and in 2010 she won the award for best self-produced album.

This is a lively, energetic band that knows how to swing.
