January at Green Note - Upcoming Highlights!

Hello music lovers,

Who remembers our twice weekly Virtually Green Note shows during lockdown? It feels like so long ago now, but they were a big part of what got us through that crazy time… it gave our weeks some structure and grounding and was such a lovely way of keeping in touch with musicians and live music while we were closed. We know that many of you really loved these shows too and it felt really good receiving such positive feedback about what we were doing. One of the aspects that everyone seemed to love was the ‘in the round’ format, where musicians took turns playing songs, swapping stories, and chatting in between songs… It made the show interactive and unique as we often had combinations of musicians who had never played together before.

Now that we’re back at our venue with real life shows, we’ve decided to recreate the format on our actual stage. Over the coming months, we will be having a few “In the round” shows… the first one is happening on Mon 30th Jan and we’ll be bringing back some of the musicians who played Virtually Green Note: Canadian artist SARAH JANE SCOUTEN with her signature mix of vintage folk and country music shares the stage with hugely respected Scottish singer-songwriter SAMATHA WHATES and Vagaband frontman JOSE MCGILL…. this night comes highly recommended, so get your tickets now!

Speaking of Virtually Green Note, one of our favourite new discoveries while we were running that series was indie-folk sister duo CHARM OF FINCHES from Melbourne, Australia… Having these online shows made distances feel irrelevant and we were able to have artists play from all over the world! However, we’re very excited to say that the wonderful Charm of Finches have actually made the long journey over here and are currently on tour in the UK! We will be putting on their London show tomorrow (Friday 20th Jan) at St Pancras Old Church in Kings Cross. The sisters have already won multiple awards in Australia and we can see why… their harmonies are to die for and their live show is beautiful. We recommend catching them while you can!

Next week, we have another show at St Pancras Old Church - on Fri 27th Jan we present TIM BAKER - best known as the songwriter and leader of Juno-nominated, Polaris-shortlisted, and multi award-winning Canadian band Hey Rosetta! Tim is returning with a new album - The Festival - a sonic embrace, a call in for love, and a cry out for connection: “Its nostalgic and nuanced with a chorus that nods to Jackson Browne and a bubbling verse worthy of Feist.” (Rolling Stone). Should be a special night!

Another upcoming highlight this month is Oregon band, THE HACKLES making their Green Note debut - they have come to us highly recommended via a number of music lovers. The Daily Express called their music “gorgeous Americana,” while RnR magazine said it was “magnificent”, and Folk Radio UK praised the “intelligent, highly melodic song-writing.” We’re really looking forward to having them play Green Note (Sunday 29th Jan) and we suggest you come and check them out!

We have lots more amazing shows coming up for course, far too many to mention here… so make sure you check out the EVENTS PAGE on our website for our full listings!

Hope to see you soon!

Lots of love,

Immy & Risa xx
