Wishing you all a Happy and especially Healthy 2022!!

Our New Year's Eve gig at the Crown, Everton, was totally enjoyable! Everybody had a great time and welcomed 2022 in style. Big thanks to Martin, Clair and rest of the staff for excellent (and safe!) hospitality!Great start to the new year and we've got lots of gigs to come!

The gig on 21st Oct at Hanger Farm, Totton, a charity event in aid of MNDA and the Minstead Trust was a great success, raising over £1000.Big thanks to all involved and we had the best time! Some clips of a few of the songs we played live on the button below... by the way,Hanger Farm was a concert where we played material that we wouldn't necessarily play elsewhere..  at a pub or club for instance.

 Look at the Dates page on this site to see the other gigs that we have coming up in the next few weeks. 

 As I posted previously, we used the Covid down time to write and record an album - 12 original tracks titled "Out Of Our Minds" - it is available on Spotify at  https://open.spotify.com/album/7r573KCOiF7QZMyhFBkoNc?si=77D2y0MPRUG-llU4wQowmQ ( or just enter Empty Frets and the title) and on CD.

Take a look at Empty Frets News .... kind of a blog area where we can just tell you a bit about what's going on. May be vaguely interesting .....

 Click the buttons below to get some videos: all recorded on mobile phones so not top quality (that's our excuse anyway!).



Empty Frets  formed in late 2013 and has since played in a wide variety  of places from pubs and clubs to festivals and parties. We started life as a 3-piece playing a lot of acoustic as well as amplified music but now we tend to rock it up a bit more! However we can still turn our hands to acoustic or semi-acoustic sessions (luckily Sarah has a powerful voice so doesn't need a mic half the time anyway!)

Usually a 5-piece band based mainly around guitars,  bass and drums we also use ukuleles and banjo (once memorably described as "the devil's toothpick") on some numbers and play a range of music from the Buddy Holly of the '60's  to Paloma Faith, Beth Hart, and Bryan Adams of the '00's. There's a bit of Country, some Folk Rock, and more than a touch of Blues too. Plus a few original numbers thrown into the mixture.

Generally laid-back in approach our general objective is to provide a variety of good music. And have fun!!
