Re-opening with lots of great shows coming up + Job vacancies

 

Hello music lovers!


First and foremost, we wanted to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!


It’s been a somewhat strange start to 2022, but after a somewhat extended holiday closure (delayed due to covid), we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be re-opening THIS FRIDAY, 14th January… and - as always - we’ve got some great music in store for you!  Make sure you check out our website for the full listings of upcoming gigs…


We’re really excited to get back to live music, but we ask that before you attend any shows, you check our website for our updated covid safety policy, as we are now asking for proof of negative lateral flow tests to gain entry to our gigs. We will continue to take measures to keep everyone as safe as possible, during these difficult and uncertain times.


UPCOMING HIGHLIGHTS
Lots of great gigs coming up over the next couple of weeks! We will kick off the new year with raucous, upbeat folk band MAN THE LIFEBOATS (Fri 14th Jan), perfect for those who like a drink with their tunes! We also have some fantastic singer songwriter co-bills coming up, including an intimate stripped back New Roots solo triple bill featuring ROB CORCORAN + LOUIS BRENNAN + HANNAH NICHOLSON (Tues 18th Jan), followed by JOSH FLOWERS + STEVIERAY LATHAM (Weds 19th Jan), two rising stars of the folk Americana scene. We also have some fantastic bands coming up including two Green Note favourites: Americana fusion outfit JOSE MCGILL & THE VAGABAND (Fri 21st Jan) and talented old-time outfit THE THUMPING TOMMYS (Sat 22nd Jan). We’re also really looking forward to welcoming back Cape-Verdean world-jazz artist CARMEN SOUZA (Fri 28th Jan) who has been described as the Cape-Verdean Ella Fitzgerald - we highly recommend this one! Folk fans will also be pleased to hear that we’ll be welcoming back award winning singer-songwriter and guitarist LUKE JACKSON (Sun 30th Jan), who is definitely one worth catching!



JOB VACANCIES AT GREEN NOTE
We are preparing for our re-opening, and are currently hiring new staff! We are looking for a part-time bar-tender to join our lovely team. We are looking for someone who is outgoing, friendly, responsible and has previous bar/hospitality experience, as well as a broader interest in Green Note and what we do. Whoever takes this role would need to be available to work evenings and weekends. We are looking for someone who is both able to work well on their own, and as part of a team. Supervising experience is a bonus. If you think you might be right for this position or know someone who is, please email a CV and brief covering letter, telling us a bit about yourself and outlining why you want to work for us.
We’re also interested in hearing from live sound engineers, who might be interested in covering occasional shifts with us. And we also have part-time opportunities for box-office/door staff. Please email us for more details.


Hope to see you soon!


Lots of love,


Immy & Risa xx
