"VIRTUALLY GREEN NOTE" (live-stream)

Wed 16th 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!


 

 

STEPHANIE LAMBRING is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee. After years of writing songs for other artists on Nashville’s Music Row, she walked away from her publishing deal to cultivate her own artistic vision. Five years later, Lambring returns with an entirely self-penned record Autonomy, released October 23rd.
Within its 10 tracks, Autonomy is exactly what it says it is––Lambring coming to terms with what her life and her world are made of. She asks listeners to take a moment and think about what makes them, and everyone who surrounds them, so human. The scars, the fears, the doubts, the resolution and the lights at the end of the tunnel. It’s a deep dive into the human experience.
“Flat out one of the best lyricists I’ve heard in years.” – Ann Powers, NPR All Songs Considered

MARY BRAGG: Nashville’s “Americana Queen” (Vice NoiseyMary Bragg, with her new album Violets as Camouflage, has been heralded in Rolling Stone and NPR Music, which named the release one of the 10 best albums of March 2019; Her clear, warm alto, reminiscent of Patsy Cline, was made for confidences, and these gorgeously crafted and executed songs touch the listener on a deep level, where insight occurs.”

For Bragg, the process of fully coming into her own began with her last record, 2017’s critically acclaimed Lucky Strike. Hailed as a “sublime distilling of Southern grit” and one of the year’s best by NPR, the album dipped its toes into a kind of radical honesty that Bragg had only previously hinted at, and it connected with audiences in profound and deeply personal ways. The record prompted Music City Roots to call the songs “infectious, smart, and resonant,” with World Cafe praising her “refined, sumptuously, melancholy take on Southern storytelling.” The title track earned Bragg first place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest in 2017, and the record’s second track, “Comet,” has racked up over three million streams on Spotify. 

KEN YATES: Quiet Talkers – The third release from London, Ontario born singer/songwriter Ken Yates.

Reuniting with Jim Bryson, who produced Yates’s 2016 release Huntsville, (which won two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year), Quiet Talkers is a dark, introspective step away from acoustic, guitar-driven, folk songs, yet still maintains Yates’ signature guitar style and lyrics that never waste time getting to the point.

After almost a decade of extensive touring, supporting artists like Passenger, Stu Larsen, Rose Cousins and Jenn Grant, Yates has been catching the attention of artists like John Mayer, Kathleen Edwards, and earning industry accolades including Folk Music Ontario’s 2020 Songs From The Heart Award.
