Some very exciting new shows announced here first!

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re all doing well!

We have lots of news to share with you today, as we’ve recently confirmed a bunch of new shows, so there are lots of new listings on our website if you feel like checking it out. We’ll give you a sneak peak at a few of them here though…

First, due to popular demand, we have added a second show with MOLLY TUTTLE & RACHEL BAIMAN, which will take place on Mon 9th May at Water Rats in Kings Cross, the night before their sold out show at Green Note. Tickets are now on sale, so any of you who who missed out on the show first time around, now is your chance! This is a special show featuring two of the rising stars of bluegrass. We first discovered Molly Tuttle a couple of years ago when she played Green Note with her family band, The Tuttles, who blew us all away. But recently Molly’s been making a massive impact in her own right. A virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award winning songwriter with a distinctive voice, she began performing on stage when she was 11, and recorded her first album at age 13. Since then, she’s appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, was featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, won first place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at Merlefest, as well as receiving a Momentum Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association in the instrumentalist category. She has also received more than two million views on YouTube! Sharing the bill with Molly, is fellow rising star Rachel Baiman, a fiddle/banjo player, specialising in Old Time, Bluegrass, Scottish, and Folk music. Highly recommended!

Green Note hits the Road…
We’ve also got some great shows coming up over the next few months as part of our ‘Green Note hits the Road’ series.
We’ve just announced two shows for this summer that we’re really excited about, both of which will take place at the Lexington in Islington. The first is Nashville country artist KELLY WILLIS, who is due to release a new album next month and will be playing on Tues 24th July. It’s the first time we’ll be putting on a show with Kelly, but we’ve been fans of hers for a long time, so we’re really looking forward to this one. The other show is EILEN JEWELL, who we’ve put on many times before, and continues to be one of our favourite live acts.

Speaking of favourites, we’re also very excited about our show with one of our all time favourite bands, BIRDS OF CHICAGO, which will take place on 14th May, also at the Lexington. Tickets are now available for all these shows and already going fast!

We’ve also got some other great shows coming up at the Lexington this month. Rising start of country music WHITNEY ROSE, on Sunday 29th April, sizzling Californian roots band MARTY O’REILLY & THE OLD SOUL ORCHESTRA on Mon 30th April, and of course this coming Monday (16th April), we have the “mighty impressive” (Chris Hawkins, BBC6) ROXANNE DE BASTION, who will be playing a full-band show in order to celebrate the launch of her first book, ‘Tales From The Rails’.

And closer to home…
Peanut Shuffle ClubWe also have our usual exciting and eclectic programme of music at our home base Green Note. The next couple of weeks sees the return of the godfather of UK country, HANK WANGFORD (Fri 13th April), an intimate basement show from THE FRAN MCGILLIVRAY BAND (Fri 13th April), sweet and nutty pop songs from the 30s and 40s from PEANUT SHUFFLE CLUB (Fri 20th April) and an album launch from acclaimed bassist DARWISH (Weds 25th April).

We’re also really looking forward to the return of “the hottest new band out of Northern Ireland” (Chicago Irish American News), CONNLA, playing tomorrow (Wednesday 11th April. And just a little heads up that we still have a handful of tickets left for a special fundraiser for fRoots Magazine - an intimate talk and Q&A with legendary record producer JOE BOYD. This is a real one off so don’t miss out on the chance to be part of it!

There are lots more recently announced shows that are most definitely worth checking out, so check out the events page of our website, where you can also buy tickets for all the shows mentioned here.

And if you don’t yet have plans for tonight (Tues 10th), we highly recommend checking out the album launch of bluegrass supergroup CARDBOARD FOX. Their first album won best the Spiral Earth Award for Best Debut in 2015 so their next one is highly anticipated!

Hope to see you soon!

Lots of love,

Immy & Risa xx
