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.

JIM EVANS / 8pm

Jim Evans is a folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, with a lyrical approach to the genre, draws in elements from a vast scope of roots music. He has firmly set up camp in a tradition of songwriters who discover, borrow and then take the genre to a new place, often vivid or surreal imagery with the British disposition at its centre.

His debut album, ‘On Seeds and Shoes’, was released in June 2014 on Little Paradise Records, and since then he has been touring extensively in the UK and Germany.

EMILY WRIGHT & THE ROYALS / 8pm

Led by singer Emily Wright (“terrifically talented” – The Telegraph) Emily Wright and The Royals are a fabulous jazz quartet who have consistently delighted audiences wherever they’ve played.
Drawing widespread critical acclaim following her sold-out concert at Brecon Jazz festival, Emily’s unique tone brings a new freshness to the swinging sounds of the 1940s and 50s and is more than ably supported by a superb rhythm section that invokes the spirit of the Nat King Cole trio.

LADY NADE & GUTIEZ / 8pm

Bristols songstress sings a collection of her favorite jazz and blues covers accompanied by Zen Hussies Guitarist Seb Gutiez.

‘Lady Nade’s voice has the husky resonance of a life well-lived and lessons learned, and yet she’s one of the brightest young sparks to emerge in the last year or so. Her songs sketch moments of emotional transformation, love and loss, arranged with care and effortlessly delivered in That Voice – yummy!’ – The Canteen

‘Emblematic of the Bristol music scene at its best. A distinctively individual performer’ – Julian Owen – Venue Magazine
