THE LOST NOTES

Support: Hugh Blaza


Thursday 8th September

Doors: 7pm | Support act: 7.15pm | Main act: 8pm

The Lost Notes are a 5-piece band based in Worcestershire and Birmingham. The principal songwriters are Ben and Oli. Oli likes folk and Ben digs jazz. Both are stubborn. Each seeks to exert their own subtle influence on the music. The result is part folk with a drag of soul roots, a slug of gospel, or downright country with a thump of jazz around the edges. They write songs for chin-strokers, foot-stompers, head-nodders and those who like to partake in the dark art of inarticulate dancing and hollering. All delivered in glorious 3 part harmonies.

JACOB & DRINKWATER

Support: Anna Renae


Thursday 6th October

Doors: 7pm | Support act: 7.15pm | Main act: 8pm

UK alt-folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called “stand out new folk” by BBC6 Music and “inventive and thrilling” by R2 Magazine. Jacob’s sweeping vocals never fail to captivate, delivering many a spine-tingling moment. The fluidity and precision of his finger-picking underpinned by Drinkwater’s nimbly rhythmic double base is at times sweetly soaring, haunting, percussive and, driving the layers of depth, are a perfect counterfoil.
