We presently have around five sessions a month – every Tuesday night and the first Sunday afternoon, run in a blackboard style, where performers either elect on the night, or book beforehand, to play for approximately 15 minutes. Guest from further afield are encouraged and we are happy to negotiate longer sets for travellers. Audiences of course are encouraged – musos love an audience! We provide good quality sound for the artists, and encourage all styles of music, but folk, blues and country are very popular amongst our group. Along with the music, good quality meals and drinks are available. There is no door charge.
We have had about 400 different acts at our sessions in our 5 year history including special guests Toni Childs, Jon Brooks, Jodi Martin, The Mae Trio, Del Barber, Rebecca Wright, Jen Mize, Rough Red and Matt Glass amongst others.
