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!

ROBERT VINCENT: Robert Vincent is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Liverpool – having received the inaugural Emerging Artist Award from “Whispering” Bob Harris in 2016 and UK Americana Music Association’s UK Album of The Year in 2018 Vincent credits his story-telling style of songwriting to his upbringing – where his formative years were spent listening to his father’s record collection including Emmylou Harris, Charlie Rich and Waylon Jennings, plus his older brother’s introduction to Pink Floyd.
His performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test: For One Night Only on BBC4 resulted in his album soaring to #1 in iTunes Country chart toppling Chris Stapleton off the top spot.
Robert released his third album ‘In This Town You’re Owned’ on February 14th to critical acclaim.
