Upcoming Highlights! A tribute to Joni + Brazilian Folk, Indie-Americana + more!


Hello Music Lovers!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you’re all doing well…

We just wanted to tell you about some of our upcoming highlights over the next couple of weeks.

First off, we wanted to tell you about a special show featuring SALLY BARKER and ANNA RYDER, entitled ‘Sandy, Joni & Me’. Yes, you guessed it, it’s a tribute to none other than Joni Michell and Sandy Denny, by two very special musicians. They will be playing songs by both Sandy and Joni, exploring the singer/songwriter legacy that was forged in the early ’70s. For those of you not already familiar with her from her previous Green Note appearances, Sally Barker is a veteran folk-blues singer/songwriter who became Tom Jones’ finalist on The Voice UK 2014 after reducing her mentor, and many watching the TV, to tears with her performances. Sally has toured with Sir Tom, Bob Dylan and Robert Plant. Sally is joined by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Ryder who has worked with Fairport Convention, Eddi Reader and Julianne Regan (All About Eve). They brought this show to Green Note last year, and we can guarantee that it will be a very special night, that any fans of Joni Michell and Sandy Denny will not want to miss!


Other upcoming highlights include… master storyteller and a stunning fingerstyle guitar player JOHN BLEK (“A force of nature” The Irish Times) who is known for his enthralling live shows full of humour, pathos and impassioned musical delivery (Thurs 27th Feb); An EP preview from CAMPBELL SIBTHORPE, whose music paints rich, beautifully striking stories of love and death with the tenderness of Sufjan Stevens and the flourishing complexities of Fleet Foxes (Weds 19th Feb); And a special triple bill featuring blues/folk/soul singer-songwriter CONNOR SELBY who will be supporting The Who on their upcoming tour, renowned rock-blues guitarist/songwrtier SAIICHI SUGIYAMA and outstanding singer JADE LIKE THE STONE (Sun 16th Feb). 


We also have some fantastic shows coming up in our Basement Bar, so make sure you check out the listings for this too!  Some selected highlights include… a debut from Brazilian folk duo TELECOTECO who play songs with the swing of Samba and the sophistication of Choro melodies (Fri 21st Feb), folk singer-songwriter BITY BOOKER with her hypnotic finger-picking style and elastic voice, playing a special gig to celebrate the magic of Winter (Sun 23rd Feb), a Green Note debut from highly acclaimed Australian jazz singer KAREN LANE who presents a night of sensual Bossa Novas, vibrant Samba and lithe Swing (Fri 28th Feb), and a special show from THE VINTAGE COWBOYS, celebrating the legend of the Old West (Sat 29th Feb) with a vividly tuneful and fun evening, and having seem them live at another venue recently we can vouch that this show will be one you won’t want to miss!

Do make sure to check out the live events page on OUR WEBSITE for full listings and follow us on social media (links below) to be kept up to date and to see what else we have coming up as there’s far too much to mention here!

We hope to see you at one of our shows very soon!

Lots of love,

Immy & Risa xx
