Three piece band playing original songs. Bluesy rock
Phillip Shaw is our drummer, firmly rock based and has been playing in various covers bands for around 15 years. Currently employed as an aluminium fabricator.
Mike Gallaghan is our bassist. A classically trained flautist, Mike took up the bass 4 years ago to pursue his love of playing rock and blues. His training becomes apparent in the walking bass lines he so effortlessly composes behind our songs. Mike is a semi retired teacher.
Ian Shaw is our guitarist and vocalist. He has played in many bands in many different genres, from traditional folk, through jazz and blues. Ian started writing songs about three years ago and played as a solo artist while polishing the compositions. A retired project manager, now following his dreams.
BeardedTheory have just finished our first studio recording of 10 original songs, and this is currently being mixed. The CD will be entitled 'Lazarus Bell'.
There are a further two recordings in the pipeline, one a selection of acoustic ballads and storytelling, the other a darker, heavier offering of some not so subtle social commentary.
