Jonathan Byrd & The Pickup Cowboy, Friday 30th June

We’re not even going to bother with a full review of the show, as the comments from some of our regulars pretty much say it all – sheer magic! Thanks to Keith Belcher for the photos.

Here’s the set list – well, Jonathan’s handwritten version!

‘Fantastic finale to the Spring season at Saltaire t’other night. Jonathan Byrd and the Pick up Cowboy a.k.a Johnny Waken cast their collection of spells over the faithful with great style and humour and a three foot long saw! Waves of eerie cinemascope Stratocaster completed the prairie picture. Many thanks to Pauline Booth (nomme de plume!) and the gang for all their hard work, modesty and expertise. You are simply the……BEST!’ – Robert McGough

‘Another fine night to remember at The Live Room, Saltaire Friday June 23. Jonathan Byrd and the Pickup Cowboy (aka Johnny Waken) on the last gig of their tour. Wonderful show which even extended to some ad hoc guitar lessons after the show finished. Great stories, great humour, great songs and superb playing and singing. Come back soon.’ – Keith Belcher

‘They were great.’ – Mike Latham
