James Thomson brings The Strange Pilgrims to The Stag

James Thomson & The Strange Pilgrims will play a special, free entry show, with guest De’ May at Mayfield’s Stag and Hunter Hotel on Saturday the 25th of June.

James and his band will be playing songs from their two critically acclaimed albums, as well as debuting some exciting new songs that will feature on their eagerly anticipated third album.

He has released two highly regarded albums and toured nationally multiple times, both as a solo artist and with his band The Strange Pilgrims. Thomson’s latest album Cold Moon is a soulful trip through blues, rock and roll, country, folk and beyond.

Check out the video for his song, Can’t Go Home This Way below.


A Newcastle local, James Thomson’s grandfather was a multi-instrumentalist and from a young age James heard a steady stream of country, blues and jazz music. Inspired by these hefty musical discoveries James started regularly playing and singing in bands during his late teens. Often these bands would play anything from garage rock to soul, blues, folk and country but soon enough James started seeking a different kind of creative outlet and a way to blend his musical influences in a more seamless way.
