A bit about the Green Rock River Brew.
It was in 2015 that the GRRB were touring their album, RHINOCEROS. They were playing the big UK venues, such as the Royal Festival Hall and Alexander Palace, but also seeking out smaller shows in the rural pockets of England. It was at a show in Graffham, West Sussex, population 511, that they first tasted Langham Brewery beer. Straight after the show they instantly emailed the brewery to say what a great tasting brew they had made, and if they ever wanted a folk band to play for them, to give them a call. As it turns out they hit it off, the brewers and the musicians became friends, and continue the tradition of holding annual charity concerts at the brewery, raising money for two different charities each year.
A collaboration like this was only a matter of time, and after a few conversations, and several tastings and a lot of fun, the Green Rock River Brew was born. A light, versatile and delicious beer.

24th June Sunday Sessions
Jack Harris 8pm
Hooray for the return of the great Jack Harris!
Jack Harris’ songs take a compassionate look at things both common and uncommon, and see them differently. They are literate, curious songs, often in character, always intriguing. His latest album, ‘The Wide Afternoon’, assembles 11 new songs, rooted in Folk and Blues traditions, telling real and imagined stories._mg_7366
The result is a bigger, darker record than Jack’s previous, critically acclaimed offering, 2012’s The Flame and the Pelican (***** Maverick, The Telegraph top 10 Roots/Folk albums of the year). ‘The Wide Afternoon’ is an album of mystery and melody, set against the expansive sound-palette and intricate arrangements of Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, Tom Robinson). Gerry’s swooping violins and eerie percussion are at the record’s sonic heart, perfectly offsetting songs of dangerous men, literary women, stolen horses and vanished birds. All are delivered in husky, intimate vocals and fluid guitar picking.
Jack was a SXSW showcasing artist at 17, as well as the youngest ever winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk Award in 2005 (previous winners include Gillian Welch, Devon Sproule and Anais Mitchell). He has been the recipient of the PRS ATOM award for new music creation, as well as an EFDSS creative bursary for songwriting.
Those days are gone, along with most of Jack’s youth and vigour, but he’s still happy to find himself touring extensively, bringing his riveting live show to appreciative audiences, and making as much music as he can.
