From the website....
"London’s biggest blues jam is the perfect place to see out the week. Catch the cream of London’s blues scene playing together on stage. If you are a musician, bring your instrument down & get involved.
Free Entry. Live Music from 8pm."
Meet at the far end of the bar near the stage (its not that long) at 7:30. If I can get seats I will. I think I look like my photo but I've had some useful feedback from some other gig goers who've told me I'm much fatter in real life, so if you can't spot me my number is[masked] - whatsapp is best. I will be wearing a salmon pink and navy rugby polo shirt.
The date on this event is just a place holder.
Hi putting this out there to see if anyone is interested in going to Memphis for a week. I have a stack of holiday this year because of Covid.
Everyone would sort there own accomodation and flights but if we coordinate we could share taxis into town.
My thought is......visit Graceland, Sun Records, Stax museum etc and eat Southern food during the days and go out to Beale Street to check out a different bar with a band each night.
From the record label of the late John Prine, Oh Boy Records announce the first ever EU/UK Tour this June, featuring the brilliant Arlo McKinley, Emily Scott Robinson and Kelsey Waldon! They will be stopping in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin, Hamburg & Amsterdam. John’s wife, Fiona, will host select evenings. Oh Boy & artists' merchandise will be available at each show.
All three artists will perform sets packed with their new music - and each night there will be a special nod to John Prine.
Tickets £17.45 inc. post. There doesn't appear to be any print at home option.
Suggest we meet nearby for a drink before the event. If anyone has any suggestions, please post and let us know. Will update as soon as can and give my mobile number before the event.
Third time lucky?
A festival of Americana and Country music, within easy reach of London. It was a top event the year before everything went to hell and this year we're finally going again! The lineup for 2022 includes:
Wilco, The Dead South, The Waterboys, The Milk Carton Kids, the Felice Brothers, Lucinda Williams, Secret Sisters, Emily Barker ...
The festival site is just outside Tunbridge Wells, and there is a regular shuttle bus to-and-from the rail station there (so you can stay offsite). There's the usual camping, stores, eats, dancing classes, paraphernalia, food, drinking, axe-throwing ... It's not a small festival but it's not huge either. Why not come along?
See the festival website for more details: http://blackdeerfestival.com/
Let's setup a Whatsapp group for coordinating, discuss what to see and go on from there. It's festival time again!
