The Hunch at Roots Music Club, Friday, September 25.

They will play at Roots Music Club on Beckett Road, Doncaster on Friday, September 24 at 8pm.

Michael Doonan is a founder member of the legendary 70s folk-rock band Hedgehog Pie, who comes from a famous Tyneside musical dynasty, which includes John Doonan Snr, Mick’s father, who was an All-Ireland piccolo champion and founding figure of the UK folk revival in the 60s. As well as the Hunch, Michael fronts The Mighty Doonans folk-rock band, and adds vocals, flute and pipes to many a session from Shields to Sheffield.

Bob Thomas fronted another highly respected folk-rock outfit, Kitsyke Will, and has since lent his wonderful soul-inflected vocal style to The Solicitors, as well as singing, playing percussion and harmonica with The Hunch. Alongside these two are the stunning acoustic guitarist/vocalist Chris Hanks and keyboards/accordionist/vocalist Tony Bacon, both alumni of West Yorkshire’s thriving roots music scene.
