Folk, Country, Jazz, Americana, African, Gypsy and more!


Hi All,

Hope you’re doing well and enjoying this lovely spring sunshine!

We’ve got some very exciting shows lined up over the next few weeks, and we wanted to let you know about a few of them…


Jeff Lang
We’re very excited to have one of Australia’s most creative and revered guitarists come back to do his first London show in over 4 years! JEFF LANG (Mon 24th April) was originally influenced by several of the great US acoustic blues players and has developed his own individual style of guitar playing encompassing rock, roots, folk, blues and improvisation, accompanied by his dynamic songwriting which is unafraid to tackle any subject with immense compassion and understanding. We guarantee that this show is going to knock your socks off!


Lynne Hanson
We’re also looking forward to the Green Note debut of Canadian band LYNNE HANSON AND THE GOOD INTENTIONS (Sun 30th April), known for their hard-living style of music, mixing gritty ballads with driving roots-tinged guitar. Lynne Hanson’s deep bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude, and she’s drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams, with a touch of Gillian Welch thrown in. Touring in support of her brand new release ‘Uneven Ground’, this will be a great opportunity to check them out.


Octotillo
Another highly recommended show is the special collaboration between innovative UK singer-songwriter KIRSTY MCGEE and US country/blues artist ROBERT GARSON entitled ‘Ocotillo’ (Thurs 27th April)... we’ve been big fans of Kirsty’s for years and her collaboration with Robert has just taken things to a new level. When they toured the UK together last year, a 5* review of one of their live shows said it best, declaring “The harmonies gel like Gram and Emmylou’s; the music, a thieved midget’s orchestra of offbeat instrumentation. When the writing’s this good, though, the sky’s the limit.”

Sura Susso
Other upcoming highlights include a night of Gambian music with creative, versatile and talented kora player & percussionist SURA SUSSO (Fri 21st April); a special stripped down show from roots music mavericks WESTERN CENTURIES (Formerly Cahalen Morrison & Country Hammer) (Sat 22nd April); and the BALAGAN CAFE BAND (Sun 23rd April) who present an evening of Parisian and American Jazz, Chaabi music of Algeria, Tango from Argentina, Balkan folk melodies and folk music of Western Europe.


Lots and lots more great gigs coming up of course - far too many to mention here - so make sure you keep an eye on our EVENTS PAGE for all the latest updates.

Hope to see you soon!
