We’ve had a wonderful 2017 so far. We got off to a great start with the beautiful voice and wonderful playing of Duotone – Barney Morse-Brown. Then in March we had a return visit from the strings of Methera. We’ve got lots more great acts coming to bring some magic to Friday nights in our little corner of the world. (In fact since we launched the website and twitter feed we’ve been approached by all sorts of artists and bands who’d like to come and play.)
Here’s what we still have lined up for you:
Friday 5th May 2017
Well we have an absolute treat for you on Friday May 5th….but we’re not allowed to tell you who they are or we’ll get in trouble with their agent. Actually they’ll get in trouble with their agent as they shouldn’t be playing for us at all. It’s a sort of clandestine, guerrilla gig.
Two scruffy looking musicians, neither of whom will see 40 again, who sit still all evening talking and playing a few songs. I know, I know it doesn’t sound that great but they really are very talented musicians, one has a fabulous singing voice and perhaps most surprisingly of all they are extremely funny.
Last year you’d have paid serious money to see one of them in a sort of super group at Glastonbury. This May you can sit just a few feet away from them and have a blast of an evening.
I know it’s a bit of an ask to urge you to buy tickets for a concert where we can’t tell you the name of the act but this is going to be a wonderful night that you won’t forget in a long, long time.
Friday 24th November 2017
No one plays the concertina quite like Jody Kruskal. He’s been touring the UK (from his native New York) every November for years and we had to be quick to bag him for this concert. Jody is an engaging presence, sharing the stories behind the songs he performs and amazing audiences with the richness of sound that he can produce from his collection of anglo concertinas.
