The Crows play an acoustic show as part of a 'mini' music festival at the Rack of Ale in Ladywell, Dover from 9 - 1030 pm on Friday 12th August 2016. And Gary and Mark are pleased to announce that stepping in on bass duties for the evening and for some shows over the next few weeks is original Crows bassist Ian Bottle. Ian, whose masterful playing on the Crows debut album in 2013 lifted the songs to another level, has taken a few months away from the music scene but he will return for these shows and the band could not be more delighted. Also, the next opportunity to catch Ian with his Crow hat on once again will be at the Great Tree Theatre Pub in Ramsgate, Kent on Friday 19th August 2016. Showtime at the Tree is 8 pm.
