Friday 7 Oct FALSE LIGHTS with Ma Polaine's Great Decline £15.00
Bar at 6.30, doors 7.30 False Lights are a folk rock group, formed in the spirit of the
genre’s late-60's originators but informed by the music of their far
more recent youth, owing as much to Radiohead as they do to
Fairport Convention. A joyful spectacle that’s immediately evident
when they perform.
Friday 21 Oct MIRANDA SYKES & REX PRESTON £11.00
Bar at 6.30, doors 7.30 In the space of a few short years, Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston have

folk & roots scene. The striking combination of the flame headed double
bass player & virtuoso mandolin player create music that Folk Roots say
is “A musical partnership made in heaven.” (no support)
