Laurie says farewell.

jazzI am very sorry to announce that our famous ‘Smoooth’ (with 3 ‘o’s) guitarist Laurie has died aged 95.

Laurie was the guitar half of our Jazz duo with Stewart (on saxophone) here at the Bulls Head. They joined us shortly after we opened four and a half years ago. They had played at a wedding and one of our neighbours recommended the duo to us and the rest is history they have been playing here every other Sunday since.

Laurie was simply remarkable, he would drive from Northwich to the Bulls Head on a Sunday and unload all his own kit himself when doing a gig. He had a firm handshake and was a great character who loved playing his music. He will be sadly missed by everyone associated with the Bulls Head for sure.

On behalf of all the Bulls Head team both past and present and of course all our customers, we send all good wishes to Laurie’s family.

Laurie was forced to retire from the music scene due to illness a couple of months ago and he was kind enough to recommend good friends of his to carry on in his place so the ‘Smoooth’ legend could continue with Stewart on Sax.

We all raise a glass to you Laurie! God bless you we are all better for knowing you.
