"VIRTUALLY GREEN NOTE" (live-stream)

Wed 2nd December 8:00pm

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!

GRANVILLE AUTOMATIC: Granville Automatic’s new album Tiny Televisions was released September 11, 2020. It is a companion piece to the band’s first book, Hidden History of Music Row, now available from The History Press (Charleston), with a foreword by Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn.

The record features new songs inspired by Nashville’s lost history, including songs about the Trail of Tears (“Monsters in the Stars”), one of the city’s first African-American business owners (“Ice Cream”), the death of an Opry star (“Opryland”), Outlaw country (“Getaway Car”), a long-forgotten neighborhood near the state capitol (“Hell’s Half Acre”) and a ‘60s-era nursing home on 17th Avenue (“Tiny Televisions”). The band co-wrote the songs with some of their favorite songwriters in town, including the legendary Tom Douglas.

Granville Automatic writes songs the Associated Press calls “haunting tales of sorrow and perseverance.” With influences as diverse as Leonard Cohen, Linda Ronstadt, Simon & Garfunkel and Dawes, Granville Automatic has created a one-of-a-kind sound that revolves around their passion for storytelling. The duo, comprised of Nashville songwriters Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins, is named after a 19th-century typewriter. You may have heard their songs on BBC Radio 2’s The Country Show with Bob Harris.
