One Night of Queen

Performed by
GARY MULLEN AND THE WORKS

In 2000, Gary Mullen won ITV’s “Stars In Their Eyes” Live Grand Final, with the largest number of votes ever received in the shows history. The record of 864,838 votes was more than twice that of the runner-up. Gary began touring on his own and in 2002 formed a band ‘The Works’, to pay tribute to rock legends Queen. Since May 2002, ‘Gary Mullen and the Works’ have performed throughout the UK, USA, Europe, South Africa and New Zealand to sell-out audiences. The outfit have also twice rocked the prestigious BBC Proms in the Park, in front of a very enthusiastic crowd of 40,000. One Night of Queen is a spectacular live concert, recreating the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of arguably the greatest rock band of all time. This show will ROCK you!

Latest News from Linton Festival 2021

It is with great regret that the directors of Linton Festival CIC have decided to postpone this year’s event after consultation with all stakeholders, bands, volunteers and local community.

We have had several meetings over the last few weeks regarding the impact Covid-19 would have on the running of this year’s Festival and did not take this decision lightly.

There are many risks that we have had to consider, the most important of which is of course the risk of spreading the virus and the impact that would have.

We believe we will still have to be compliant with the Government regulations and Public Health guidelines for Covid-19 this summer. Not only might this impact on your enjoyment of the Festival (wearing masks, table service, etc.), but also on additional running costs associated with required hygiene. Furthermore, if we must adhere to social distancing rules, we would not be able to accommodate the usual number of Festival attendees.
At this point the committee cannot guarantee the restrictions will have lifted sufficiently to run Linton Festival to the standards to which we aspire, putting everyone’s health foremost.

Organising Linton Festival requires that we commit time and expenditure on booking bands and facilities way in advance. We feel that leaving a decision to the last minute to see how things go is irresponsible and may jeopardise the future of Linton Festival. We are truly sorry.

THE GOOD NEWS IS we can announce the dates for Linton Festival 2022 will be 1st to 3rd July 2022. This is when we will finally get to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and hopefully welcome you all back.

The majority of the fantastic bands and artists who were to perform both last year and this July have stated that they intend to be with us next year. We anticipate all the line up will be as previously advertised and we are working hard to confirm this.

The ticket rollover process will be confirmed in due course and we will be in touch with you regarding the options. If you have queries or questions about our processes and decisions, please get in touch via our contact page <click here >

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you and your families a safe and healthy time ahead and look forward to seeing you next year.

Best wishes from everyone on the Linton Festival Committee.

Amor, Barrett, Barry, Fisk & Siegal

To celebrate the 20th Linton Festival a group of extraordinary musicians have come together to create a unique blues-rock experience.

Calling themselves “Amor, Barrett, Barry, Fisk and Siegal” the band is comprised of members from The Hoax, Boom Band, Hokie Joint, LaVendore Rogue, Mississippi Mudbloods and many more!

To those that follow the blues genre they are Jon Amor, Joel Fisk, Mark Barrett, Rob Barry and Ian Siegal.

When Joel Fisk was asked to put together a “super group” for Linton Festival 2020, a few names popped into his head immediately.

This band consists of members who have all played together r on numerous occasions, but never all at the same time!

The name is the height of imagination, but give you a clue of its members: Amor, Barrett, Barry, Fisk & Siegal.

So, in alphabetical order…

Having made his name as a guitar player with legendary UK Blues band The Hoax, Jon Amor has established himself as a find singer/songwriter in his own right, releasing a string of highly acclaimed solo albums, spearheading the widely successful Jon Amor Blues Group and as part of the all-star UK line-up The Boom Band.

Behind the drum set is Mark Barrett, of The Hoax, 22-20s and Beaux Gris-Gris & The Apocalypse fame. Mark has shared the bill with BB King, Jimmie Vaughan, Eric Clapton and Johnny Winter to name but a few. Nominated 4 times for Drummer of the Year in the British Blues Awards.

On bass is Rob “Tank” Barry, 3-time Digital Blues Award winning Bass Player of the Year. Founder member of LaVendore Rogue, Joel Fisk & The Breakdown, Tim Aves & Wolfpack and The Rockin’ Armadillos. Rob has also played with such artists as Lightnin’ Willie, Hokie Joint, Jose Ramirez, Son Henry and Bobby Patterson.

5-time Guitarist of the Year nominee and UK Blues Challenge winner Joel Fisk burst onto the scene as a founder member of award-winning band Hokie Joint. He went on to form LaVendore Rogue, who have played shows all over the UK, Europe and in Memphis, TN.
He performed heavily on the UK Blues Scene with solo project, Joel Fisk & The Breakdown as well as Tim Aves & Wolfpack, before joining forces with Jon Amor to form The Fisk Amor Electro Acoustic Duo, who went on to be awarded runner up in the British Blues Awards Acoustic Act of the Year category.
In 2016 Joel toured as a member of Ian Siegal’s band for his 25th anniversary as a touring artist.

In Siegal’s 25+ years of touring, his mission statement has barely changed: songs that are real, shows that resonate, vocals served raw. Today he is considered by many to be the most compelling British Blues artiste since the great names of the sixties.
Tagged by Classic Rock Magazine as “a national treasure”, American’s Blues Bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic Blues performer in the UK”. He has taken his music to some 50 countries and presided over a trophy haul that includes two UK Blues Awards, ten British Blues Awards, four European Blues Awards, two MOJO Blues Albums of the Year and three US Blues Music Award nominations.

Together this group will throw their influences into a melting pot of Roots, Blues, Soul, Americana, Country and Rock & Roll.

To those that follow the blues genre they are Jon Amor, Joel Fisk, Mark Barrett, Rob Barry and Ian Siegal.
