    Athene Roberts and Tim Ashton (3 Daft Monkeys) live at The Cove Cafe Bar in Hope Cove Devon

    Athene Roberts and Tim Ashton (3 Daft Monkeys) live at The Cove Cafe Bar in Hope Cove Devon

    THE DRIVING force behind internationally-renowned quirky festival folk band 3 Daft Monkeys play The Cove Cafe Bar on Friday, July 3.

    Fresh from Glastonbury, founding members Athene Roberts (violin, vocals) and Tim Ashton (guitar, vocals) head to Hope Cove as a duo -performing acoustic versions of their original songs, including some rarely heard on the road, along with traditional tunes from around the world, gathered on their busking travels.

    They have enjoyed success both in the UK and mainland Europe playing major festivals and headlining venues, and have achieved a deserved reputation of an exhilarating and energetic live performance.

    The Cornwall-based couple met in Europe, performing as travelling musicians, and spent their early musical years together busking the streets by day, and learning tunes from other street entertainers from around the world during colourful night-time sessions in bars and around camp fires.

    It’s this eclectic mix of tunes and styles that they bring to their more personal and acoustic shows as a duo.

    Their music is energetic yet thought provoking, drawing influences from traditional European and Eastern folk music and folklore to modern social comment, and has a passion and joy that is infectious.

    Since the birth of their son Arlo in 2012, Tim and Athene have maintained a busy touring schedule with 3 Daft Monkeys, but have decided to also branch out as a duo to explore their musical roots.

    With over ten highly-acclaimed studio albums under their belts, Athene and Tim have written many songs and tunes that may not usually be played in the high-energy 3 Daft Monkeys set

    This is an opportunity to share some of their more heartfelt and unusual song styles with an intimate audience.

    Athene and Tim’s music has been used on BBC TV documentaries , Films and on Sky Sports Channel as well as being used for live Theatre and Circus shows. Athene will be appearing in the forthcoming Pinewood Studios blockbuster movie “Tulip Fever”, and has recorded as a session musician on numerous albums for bands, orchestras and theatre.

    The couple, along with the rest of their band, have been invited to play ‘live’ sets on both the Bob Harris BBC Radio 2 show, and more recently on Mark Radcliffe’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.

    David Haye vs Tony Bellew live on Sky Sports Box Office in The Cove in Hope Cove Saturday March 4

    David Haye vs Tony Bellew live on Sky Sports Box Office in The Cove in Hope Cove Saturday March 4

    DAVID Haye and Tony Bellew will clash in a heavyweight blockbuster live via Sky Sports Box Office at The Cove in Hope Cove on Saturday, March 4.

    The big-hitting pair will finally settle their differences in the ring having clashed explosively on Sky Sports in Liverpool in October when Bellew defended his WBC World Cruiserweight title against BJ Flores, with the Liverpool star calling Haye out after knocking Flores out. Haye and Bellew exchanged angry words and had to be separated by security – but this time there will be no parting them.

    Former two-weight World champion Haye returned from a three and a half year absence from the ring in January at The O2 with a first round KO win over Mark De Mori, following that in the same setting four months later with a second round KO win over Arnold Gjergjaj. The ‘Hayemaker’ has dominated the ring for over a decade, crowned the Cruiserweight King, unifying the division in March 2008 with a fine win over Enzo Maccarinelli again at The O2. Then added The WBA World Heavyweight Championship to his impressive CV 18 months later against Nikolai Valuev – becoming the second boxer in history to win World Titles at both weight divisions.

    “The public demand for me to violently knockout Tony ‘The Bell-End’ Bellew was simply too strong,” said Haye. “The country is fed up of his constant yapping. Even in his home town of Liverpool, I would be stopped in the street by people begging me to spectacularly send him into retirement.

    “Bellew is completely delusional if he thinks he can beat me. He still thinks he’s on the set of Creed and there will be some kind of Rocky style happy ending. But come March 4th at The 02 in London I will bring reality crashing down on him.

    “I’ve earned my credentials the hard way inside the ring, not on film sets. There will be no second takes, no stunt men taking the blows and no flashing lights on the red carpet, the only lights Bellew will see are those of the spot lights shining down on him when he wakes up from his nap on the canvas.”

    Bellew became a World champion in stunning fashion in the summer when he climbed off the canvas in the first round against hard-hitting Ilunga Makabu to win the WBC Cruiserweight title with a devastating third round KO at Goodison Park in May – the home of his beloved Everton FC. ‘The Bomber’s’ success came at the third attempt having twice boxed for World titles at Light-Heavyweight before moving to Cruiserweight where he exacted revenge for one of his World title reverses against old rival Nathan Cleverly then landing the European crown against Mateusz Masternak before becoming World champion.

    “I’ve backed him into a corner, left him nowhere to go, and now I have what I want,” said Bellew. “I’m not under any illusions, I know exactly what I am going up against, it’s big risk, big reward.

    “I cop him with my best punch, he’s going to sleep. He cops me with his best punch, more than likely I am going to sleep too. I know what I am up against but the big factor for me is, I’m a very active fighter, I’ve had no breaks and I’ve got very little wear and tear on me. If it comes down to a question of heart and determination I win hands down. If it comes down to one punch, it’s a 50-50.

    “He hasn’t been in a hard fight for over five years. The last time he had a gut check, he failed it. Going into this fight I 100 per cent know that he does not want it as much as me and he is not going to be as brave as me.

    “Everyone knows I get off the floor and I fight until the finish. I know the minute it gets tough for David Haye, he’s going to spew it. He thinks he can beat me up in one round with one hand. He’s in for a rude awakening, because if this fight gets hard, and I expect it to be the hardest night of my life, this clown expects a walk in the park and he’s in for a bad night.”

    “This is just a huge, huge fight,” said Eddie Hearn. “One of the best Heavyweights in the world against the best Cruiserweight in the world. An explosion of concussive punchers riddled with bad blood and desperate to score a knockout victory. The build-up will be electric as will fight night, I like millions of fight fans around the world cannot wait!”

    “This is quite simply a must-see fight,” said Adam Smith, Sky Sports’ Head of Boxing Two of the biggest personalities and punchers in world boxing will collide in a cracking confrontation which has everything. Both men have been fantastic pundits for us in 2016 and it’s fitting that we’ll show their heavyweight bout exclusively live in what should be a rocking O2 Arena.”

    And a lot of people believe in this dude.

    Last year saw regular airplay on Radio 1 thanks to Huw Stephens and a deal struck with Universal Japan.

    With tracks like ‘Who Cares if You Exist’ and ‘It Just Isn’t The Same Anymore’ - you know what you’re getting.

    “My songs aren’t ones to dance to,” says Holman.

    “They are all about my experiences and feelings, It’s emotional guitar music for the heavy hearted.”

    This guy could go all the way.

    The Cove's Monster Halloween bash live in Hope Cove

    *Shuttle Bus available from Kingsbridge & Malborough to Hope Cove - Advance tickets only*

    BUY SHUTTLE BUS TICKETS BY CLICKING HERE

    MASH up a storming set from the Andy Quick Band, big bombs via Anthony Joshua and a baying crowd - it’s The Cove’s MONSTER Halloween Bash Part III on Saturday October 28 2017.

    And just to make it that bit easier, the shuttle bus runs again with pick ups in both Kingsbridge and Malborough to get to Hope Cove for some musical, sporting fireworks.

    Established as a real firm favourite here, Quick is back and this time with a full 4-piece band as part of an extensive UK tour.

    During a break from the awesome force that is Land Of The Giants, he’s gone electric and cranked up the volume with a fresh collection of bangers.

    Accompanied by a pumping rhythm section featuring Jackal Hebb (drums), Josie Boucharde (bass) and Martin Jenkins (keys), they recorded debut album ‘The Way Things Are’ - an eclectic and fiery collection that has been turning heads over the past 12 months.

    Obsessed with his craft, Andy has big ideas and is a writer of catchy anthems that stick with you long after the show is over. With an engaging presence on stage, he tells unique tales with his songs; from the hedonism of life on the road through to the everyday responsibility of fatherhood and everything and anything in between.

    As a performer, he has real fire in his belly and in recent years has become a regular act at the UK's major festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival and Isle of Wight to name just a few.

    Having followed Joshua every step of the way in The Cove, we once again deliver a PPV as he defends his WBA and IBF World Heavyweight titles against new number 1 contender Carlos Takes.

    This fight will be live across multiscreen via Sky Sports Box Office.

    Ride the shuttle bus to Hope Cove with a pick-up at Kingsbridge Quay at 8pm and Malborough Post Office at 8.15pm. The bus returns from The Cove at 11.30pm with travel tickets £5 and available on-line via www.thecovedevon.co.uk or use the link here:
