What's on

AUGUST - CLUB CLOSED

WEDNESDAY 14th SEPTEMBER - THE OFTEN HERD

The Often Herd are a four piece band - guitar, mandolin, fiddle and double bass - who play and sing an eclectic mix of folk, bluegrass and acoustic roots. They marry the wistful sunshine harmonies of Southern California with the striking industrial allure of their North Eastern (England) home! An engaging and dynamic live act, the band are able to pull off their intricately arranged material alongside moments of spontaneous improvisation. Their sound is both boldly contemporary and soothingly familiar, taking time-honoured traditions to new places with a fresh perspective. Flock to the herd, you won’t be disappointed!

A study in virtuosity from a supremely talented group of musicians.’ Claire Dupree, NARC

‘Traditional, inventive, tight and sharp. For those who think they don’t like bluegrass this could be the point they change their minds.’ Tom Franks, FolkWords

  • 8.30pm start (doors open 8.00pm)

  • Entry: £12.00 (£10.00 members,  £6.00 under 18s and students)
