Friday night (October 24) at the Wheatsheaf in North Street, Leighton is rock night featuring MK-based trio Motherlode.

They’ll be playing original rock inspired by Cream, Free, Led Zeppelin and similar roots. The band has previously been booked to support greats like Wishbone Ash, Glenn Hughes and Budgie.

Motherlode are Graham Fieldhouse on vocals and Bass, Simon Alexander on guitar, with Neil McBride on drums.

They launched in 2000 as a four-piece band and other than shedding a member, have since then gone from strength to strength. For lovers of rock, these are a real must.
