So why not pop down? Soak up the wonderful atmosphere with a cheese board and some real ale, listen to awesome acts and get ready to treat your ears, be inspired, sing along and stomp your feet.
This month's awesome line up features:
An indie folk band might be considered an unlikely outfit for Robert Sword, a classically trained pianist, and Simon Thomas, an Oceanography graduate, to end up in. However, these things can happen in unusual ways. Sandtimer create music that often centres around the passage of time, including themes of reflection, escapism and hope. Their recordings have been featured on a number of national radio shows in the UK, as well as several prominent blogs and playlists. Now operating as a full band, with Rachel Thomas on bass and vocals, and Alex Jackson on percussion, they have performed on the UK acoustic circuit frequently, as well as touring western Canada and northern continental Europe.
On the 14th 0f April 2001 Fuzzy Brown went down to The Crossroads, guitar in hand, to sell his soul to The Devil in return for MAD GUITAR SKILLZ!
Lucifer took one look at Fuzzy's black shriveled soul and said "NO!!! HOWEVER YOU DO HAVE BEAUTIFUL EYES. I WILL ACCEPT ONE EYE AS PAYMENT FOR THE MAD GUITAR SKILLZ YOU SEEK." Fuzzy agreed.
Satan plucked Fuzzy's right eye from his head and placed it in his own demonic bellybutton, bestowing on Fuzzy Brown MAD GUITAR SKILLZ the likes of which the world had never seen. There was, of course, a catch.
Fuzzy is now doomed not only to see the world through his one remaining eye but also through his missing eye from the depths of Beeltzebub's Bellybutton.
London based Multi-Instrumentalist and Solo Artist. Ed plays Harmonica, guitar, percussion and sings.
Regularly seen playing and hosting Old-Time sessions around London.

Live at The Lamb - Rainbrother
Last year the release of Rainbrother’s critically acclaimed debut album Tales From the Drought gave the group a fair amount of Danish radio airplay and a ticket to SXSW Festival in the US and English festivals like Wilderness and Bestival. Along with frequent touring in their native Denmark and the UK the five rainbrothers also found time to drive their equipment out to an old farmhouse in the Danish countryside where they isolated themselves for two weeks and recorded a number of frontman Bjarke Bendtsen’s new songs.
Island has been through the mixing console of L.A. producer Kennie Takahashi who has worked with the likes of Beck, Black Keys and Danger Mouse. He has spiced up the sound of the farm attic, run the softer alt-folk sound through his new and old machines. Expect an album with psychedelic guitar tones, crunchy acoustic guitar and vibrant 70s drums led by Bendtsen’s alluring vocals.

An Evening With Joe Kelly
It's easy to consign the idea of the itinerant blues singer to myth (Robert Johnson) or caricature (Seasick Steve) but in 2018, Joe Kelly is as close as you'll get to the real thing. Having spent the last couple of years calling a dilapidated camper van home and playing hundreds of shows armed with just a beaten-up guitar, a stomping foot and a harmonica, Joe decided that enough was enough, breaking free of the limitations of the one-man band and enlisting the services of a hand picked troupe of the finest local guns for hire, the ‘Royal Pharmacy’.
Debut single ‘Devil At Your Door’, an apocalyptic folk-blues with roots instrumentation and a contemporary edge proved an immediate hit with regional radio DJs earning the band a BBC Horizons grant and setting Joe up for a fruitful summer of festival appearances and an Italian tour.
The Launchpad funding saw Joe Kelly & The Royal Pharmacy begin work on their debut album at the renowned Monnow Valley studios, the first single from which, ‘Babylon’, was released in November 2017.

He has lived a life immersed in music having started out at an early age following his piano playing father around New Orleans parades, jam sessions and bars, snare drum in hand.
