Every Sunday we showcase some of the regions finest musicians from 8pm.
CHIRIMOYA / 8pm
Choice R&B from Hendrix to Rihanna in authentic
New York latin jazz style. Chirimoya have the cool jazz harmonies and
danceability of Poncho Sanchez.
Tammy Payne, congas and vocals.
Ruth Hammond, keys and vocals.
Jake McMurchie, sax.
Matt Jones, drums.
BARTOUNE / 8pm
12 years of experience and showmanship leaves this professional trio well versed at taking the audience on a journey. The hot-club style outfit travels through desert caravans, medditerranean vibes and 40s swing-dance halls, depending on where the crowd, and the band, want to go!
Their fresh sound and variety of instruments and rhythms keeps any audience interested. Gypsy Jazz, classic songs, mellow clarinet tones, and driving Bari sax , all under pinned by the tight swing of vibrant guitar and bass.
JUST 3 / 8pm
Pitch perfect vocal harmony trio who perform their own arrangements of classic soul/motown, gospel and pop songs.
DROMEDARY / 8pm
This mysterious coming together of Richard'Velvet Chestnut' Hughes, lost troubadour from a deserted circus, and Hungarian percussionist Adam Pettick is very likely to conjure up the drifting smoke of carousing campfires as well as the stark shadows of forbidding forests. It certainly will not give you the hump.
NAMVULA / 8pm
Fusing the folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland and her Scottish roots with London’s eclectic music scene, Namvula blends African sounds and rhythms with Latin, jazz and folk into uplifting and emotive songs. Crossing boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music transports listeners into different worlds, whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil.
THE RUMBLESTRUTTERS / 8pm
The Rumblestrutters bring you feel-good blues, jazz and ragtime of the Prohibition era. The band’s vivid evocations of the music of the 1920s and ‘30s has earned them a reputation as one of the most authentic and popular roots bands around, with highlights including stellar performances at Birmingham International Jazz Festival and Gloucester Blues Festival. Songs of bootleg liquor, all-night parties and bacchanalia abound, tapped from a rich musical source. The Rumblestrutters bring you the authentic sounds of 1920s and '30s America!
AFRO FLAMENCO TRIO / 8pm
A blend of West
African kora music with southern Spain's flamenco, spiced up with
original interpretations of the affair between the two.
THE SLIMLINE SHUFFLERS / 8pm
Henry Slim & Eric Arthur, members of established Bristol-based band
Bucucrasu, decided they needed another project to keep their idle thumbs
busy lest the devil make work for them. They also decided they
needed one of those strange people who hit stuff with sticks &
contacted Jai Widdowson-Jones. He was happy to oblige, and so the
Slimline Shufflers were born. Expect some mean Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans Jazz and Blues Strollers.
