Lewis Hamilton (lefl) and Tom Killner

We were lucky enough to catch two excellent blues rock bands at Suddaby’s last Friday. The Lewis Hamilton Band and the Tom Killner Band are both trios led by young guitarists who are rising names on the blues circuit. The Tom Killner Band are Rotherham-based and the Lewis Hamilton Band have recently moved to the Malton area, so it was an extra pleasure to welcome them to their first gig at our favourite local. Suddaby’s fortunately managed to snag the date on the bands’ UK tour owing to a last minute cancellation. Both played soulful, energetic sets — and the pub’s own Declan Suddaby sat in, trading fours with Lewis Hamilton on ‘Red House’. All in all an impressive showing, and we’d love to hear more from both bands. It’s to be hoped that the Lewis Hamilton Band will appear again at Suddaby’s soon.

Father Tim onstage

Father Tim Bywater celebrated his 65th birthday at Suddaby’s on Friday 12th June. (For those of you not acquainted, he is the parish priest at St Leonard’s & St Mary’s in Malton). Fr Tim has long been a friend of Sudd’s and calls in now and again for a pint of Double Chance. The crowd of around 80 friends and parishioners were entertained by the amazing Fliss Barker and The Dirty Stopouts, with guest appearances from Patrick Robertson, and Tim Richardson on guitar. Young Anja Longworth sang a stunning rendition of ‘Hallelujah’.

In his thank you speech, Father Tim paid eloquent tribute to Neil and Karen’s support of charities and local causes, saying ‘It’s all about community…’. We couldn’t agree more!
