We are all in the basement, but some of us are looking up at the stars… Stargazing is all about spotting those stellar new artists and giving them a place to shine each month. Expect some unlikely constellations where talent might be the only thing they have in common. And all from the subterranean comfort of the charming Green Note basement.

Tonight featuring AK Patterson + Holly Redford Jones + Zander Sharp

A K Patterson is a singer-song writer, guitarist and fiddle player who grew up learning music in the pubs of Cambridge. Her songs possess dark narratives inspired by personal experiences such as her ancestral history in blacksmithing to strange encounters with Japanese Monks. Her soulful and gutsy vocals makes for an intoxicating performance.

Holly is a singer-songwriter from Chesterfield, now based in Oxford after graduating in politics there in 2016. She combines a love of songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon with a powerful vocal and smokey range, which she has honed over the last few years singing into the wee small hours with some of Oxford’s finest jazz bands. Holly performs her songs both solo and accompanied by her talented band comprised of John Paul (Bass), Ed MacLean (Sax & Keys) and Chris Cottell (Drums). In February 2017 she releases her debut EP, “The Future”.’

Zander Sharp is a Bristol-based singer and songwriter. He has recently come to the unexpected conclusion that he might be a country singer, and is trying to figure out a sensitive way to break the news to his loved ones.
