Swamp Stomp String Band - Sunday Sessions - 2nd April - 8.30PM
Come and celebrate The Swamp Stomp String Band's album release!
The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that'll have the room stomping their feet and shooting tequila to ballads that'll break even the most toughest folk, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit dive bars at night.
Taking a mixture of Jazz, Country, Swing, Blues and Ragtime - it is safe to say their music is there to be enjoyed by people young and old, rich or poor, or who just love to stamp their feet and have a ho-down.
Bedlamb - 5th April - 8.30PM

Bluesy Wednesdays featuring Andy Twyman - 12th April - 8.30PM
Come and spend a bluesy Wednesaday with Andy Twyman - One Man Band
When Andy released the first ever naked Christmas music video it hit the national headlines, leading The Mirror newspaper to ask “Is this the best Christmas music video ever?” With the topics of his songs ranging from chickens to Luxembourg via Pot Noodle, 24 year old Andy Twyman blends blues with humour and rock and roll to titillate your ears, mind and toes. Having performed on BBC Three and Channel 4, Andy’s reputation is growing as a highly original and entertaining act.
Andy first took to the stage aged 12 in pubs and clubs, with his guitar, voice and harmonica. Before hitting 18, he had gigged as a solo act in top London venues including The Jazz Café and 100 Club. Driven to create a distinctive and exciting act, Andy learnt to play foot operated drums, giving his songs a beat to get people on their feet. Drawing on influences as diverse as Muddy Waters, Monty Python, the White Stripes and Noel Fielding he developed a one man band show. In recent years Andy has brought this show to Spain, the Netherlands and France, has had airplay on BBC Radio Kent and London’s Resonance 104.4FM, and has had articles written about his music in The Sun, the Mirror, and The Daily Mail newspapers. When the summer arrives, Andy finds himself having fun at festivals all over the country inducing laughter and dancing amongst the drunk and disorderly. Allow Andy to tickle your funny follicles with lyrics absurd and profound, and dazzle your ear drums with music and sound. You know you want too.

The Company of Players - 30th April - 8.30PM
One for the diaries as this will be a one off gig! An exceptional line up of folk musicians come together around Shakespeare.
The Company of Players
The Company of Players is a crazy idea Jess had about a year ago. Inspired by the likes of The Full English, The Elizabethan Sessions and Songs for the Voiceless, Jess set about creating her own folk 'supergroup' made up of some of the best emerging folk artists on the UK scene.
Said The Maiden
Kim Lowings and The Greenwood
The aim of the group is to write, record and perform a body of brand new material based on the works of William Shakespeare, to commemorate him on the 400th anniversary of his death. The Company of Players will be spending a week in April (2-9) together in a house in Belper, writing and rehearsing, creating new, exciting works and collaborations together, then recording it and taking it on the road.
