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.

23 November


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.
