While the doors to our beloved venue remain closed and the whole world as we know it seems to have turned upside down, we wanted to continue to do what we love doing! So…. we are very proud to present “Virtually Green Note… in the round”… a series of specially-curated, unique online musical events that will run every Wednesday and Friday evening at 8pm (UK time), streamed live to our website, our YouTube and Facebook page.
If you watch this show (and are able to) we would like to like to ask you to make a donation via our PayPal link and support the musicians during this difficult time. All the money raised for each show, will be divided between the venue and the three artists playing on this date. Please know that we, and all the musicians involved, are incredibly grateful for the support of music-loving audiences… and it enables us to keep doing what what we do!
Suggested donation £10, but any donation will be much appreciated. Thank you!

CAMILO MENJURA: Versatile, award winning musician Camilo Menjura is an independent guitarist, singer and choir leader based in London. Originally from Colombia, Camilo explores the world of Latin American traditional music as a solo artist as well as in collaboration with other instrumentalists.
His guitar playing evoques the strumming of the Andean Charango, the fiery Venezuelan Cuatro and the warmth of the Cuban style guitar. These elements combined with some classical guitar technique, make his playing a unique soundscape of textures and depths that will have you transported to warmer altitudes.
His album “Loop Explorations”, reveals his passion for a cappella music and Afro-Latin grooves, combined in a unique production.
