During their long and colourful musical career ‘The Varlies’ have graced many different stages and have appeared in many different forms. That said there has always been two constants in the form of founding members and writers, John Whitehorn and Kev Amos.
With a wealth of influences far too long to even begin listing, their dynamic and versatile style of songwriting has a distinct quality that appeals to a wide audience and variety of tastes. They are never more at home than when playing live and deliver great performances whether as the full band or as a stripped down acoustic line up.
As always, the band are really looking forward to ‘Local and Live’ a fanatastic local event and once again tip their hat to Mr Dunton for his tireless work in supporting local and original music and making this event happen year after year.
