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 four ways, 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!
CHARLIE DORE: Charlie Dore chooses some personal favourites from her back collection, and may also dip into her new album, Like Animals, out on June 19th. The stories between her songs are often dark and funny. This multi-award-winner is one of only a handful of contemporary writers to have had success across so many different genres; Tina Turner, George Harrison, and Celine Dion have all covered Charlie’s songs; history shows that she saves the best for herself.
“...subtle songs that pack a punch, her winsome voice lulls you into a false sense of security as she pulls the rug out from under your feet… absolute gems of modern songwriting” Mike Harding
REG MEUROSS: If something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it. The breadth and depth of his material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk/historical legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage. Experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.
“...assured a place in the pantheon of great folk songwriters.” David Kidman, The Living Tradition
“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3
HARBOTTLE & JONAS: Harbottle & Jonas are one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Partners in life as well as music, Dave and Freya have evolved a compelling live signature sound blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their powerful close vocal harmonies.
“One of the finest folk duos in the country…. utter brilliance as performers and writers” Mike Davies
