Americana / Country
Austin based duo comprised of Adam Johnson and Mark Henne.
Adam Johnson has been playing his version of Chicago blues and funky, Texas twang in bars, dancehalls and theaters for over a decade. As well as penning many of his own original tunes, he has also played side man to many of Texas' country, Americana and rock acts. While his roots may lie in these classic generes, living in Austin has allowed many new sounds to influence and make thier way into Johnson's original music.
These "new sounds" are now finally coming to life through the partnership of longtime friend and collaborator, Mark Henne. The duo created, "Cold Jackets" to showcase some of their favorite influences and provide a platform for a new musical direction. Old and new, drum machines and blues. Cold Jackets has something just for you.
Mark moved to Austin in 2008 and has worked with international touring bands such as Leopold and his Fiction, Asylum Street Spankers, Graham Wilkinson, Sahara Smith, Ben Ballinger and many more. Mark also engineers records and does video production for bands.
Live Music Bar
Overlooking Montpellier Gardens, one of the town centre’s most picturesque locations, the vividly painted Blues Bar packs an unlikely punch amongst its more gentile neighbours.
However, due to its unique, welcoming vibe, its insistence in providing high quality, free live music every night of the week, and the incredible support of its customers, the bar has developed a strong position in the community, as licensees Simon and Sharon Colgan, explain:
"The Blues Bar is not just a pub, it has a defined character that has aged extremely well," says Simon. "It is the only live music venue in Harrogate that has kept its identity during the past 21 years and it continues to attract new customers and performers from miles around."
Modelled on an Amsterdam cafe´ bar it has been going for more than 20 years.
