What are you planning? Where shall we go?
The Shack is delighted to announce a very special night of live music on Friday 9th November, when we are hosting Wild Willy Barrett, renowned musician and eccentric - yes, it is He of Otway and Barrett fame! More details on the Shack website, tickets £5 in advance and if you want to fly in, then our apron is a mere 100 yds away from our clubhouse! We can recommend local B n B's or hotels or if you're very brave, why not camp out in the paddock?
Check out Willy and his current band at http://www.willybarrett.com and of course we are http://www.flyingshack.com
Come and join us for a truly memorable night of music and laughs!
Here's a press review of what to expect (and remember to contact us to book your place on 9th Nov)....
There’s no doubt about it, the evenings are definitely getting darker, the clocks will soon be going back – but we have the answer: beat those autumn blues with a evening of music and humour.
Buckinghamshire’s very own eccentric musician Wild Willy Barrett comes to the Flying Shack on Friday 9 November with his band Sleeping Dogz . Their original blend of material covers genres from Bluegrass, Irish jigs and acoustic blues to what can only be described as punk folk, played on instruments as diverse as guitar, banjo, fiddle, cello, Irish pipes, whistles and drums.
Willy has been working in France for the last year with French singer Mary-Laure (who will also be on tour with him here in the UK next year) where the talented multi-instrumentalist has been putting together a more up-beat set with jazz-jive and country rock influences. Willy says he is undergoing a musical metamorphosis and this is reflected in his playing.
If you are looking for a group within a set genre performing covers, forget it. However, if you are looking for a truly original performance full of fun, dry humour and the unexpected, with toe-tapping fiddle and banjo interspersed with haunting vocals, cello and guitar – see you there!

Never seen him perform solo, always as straight man to the insane Otway - but I don't doubt it will be a great show.

Well, you lot missed an absolutely amazing evening's entertainment last week. But you can catch some aspects of it on our Facebook page, courtesy of Shirley and Chris' excellent videos. What's more, Willy intends to come back and play for us next spring, so you'll get another chance to come if you missed out this time.
