Songs to make you laugh and cry….not necessarily at the same time.
Hi. I'm Al Neville, singer, guitarist and writer of songs to make you laugh and cry...not necessarily at the same time. I play solo, in a duo with fiddle player Rachel Eyres and in the bands The Spangles Gang, Storm in a Teacup, The Traveling Tilburys and Déjà Vu. I'm also very much involved with local charity Redbridge Music Lounge: www.rmluk.org
I love to play solo gigs around the clubs, pubs and elsewhere. I've written a lot of comedy stuff that seems to go down well, which I like to contrast with more serious songs. I also enjoy playing in homes and day centres and at events, adding pop songs and sing-alongs into the mix. My new solo CD comes out in 2019…my first since “Heart Man” in 2014.
AL NEVILLE AND RACHEL EYRES
Rachel and I play together performing songs and tunes on guitar, violin and harmony vocals. Our CD “Busy” came out in 2017. Rachel also performs with our good friend Sally Vinson, and on occasions the three of us hook up together too.
THE SPANGLES GANG
I'm delighted to be in the Spangles Gang, playing our versions of old time, country, folk and bluegrassy songs. We recorded our CD “You’ve Been Spangled” in 2012, and we’re working on a new one which we plan to bring out later in 2019.
STORM IN A TEACUP
I am a member of Storm in a Teacup, a folk music and ceilidh band with an international flavour. Featuring 2 accordions, 2 fiddles and me on guitar, we play at shows, barn dances, weddings and other events. See our website: www.storminateacup0.wixsite.com/band
THE TRAVELING TILBURYS
Arising from the Redbridge Music Lounge comes The Traveling Tilburys, in which I'm proud to be playing songs made famous by The TW's either in that band or in their own right. From George Harrison to Roy Orbison in three easy steps; what's not to like?
Tim Heaslip, Steve Moorby, Steve Hackwell and I perform as "Déjà Vu" (of course!), doing the songs of Crosby Stills & Nash. We've been performing since July 2015 and we're around and about, so look out for us.
