And I'll be there both nights!

Im constantly amazed and so grateful to every one of you that buys tickets to our unique shows. You make pretty much every show a sell out, and the love and respectful attention you give to the artists is second to none. Typical was last nights Sold Out The Slocan Ramblers show - standing ovation, and the decency to actually listen to what the artist is singing about. Every visiting musician says the same - they know youre going to listen and to them that is such a crucial aspect of the touring process. Thanks everyone again! Just 2 more shows left this year - 30th Nov and the Roots In The Round Nashville-style songwriters circle with Americana Music Association UK award nominees Robert Vincent Music & Worry Dolls, plus the brilliant Dean Owens Musician - Official - all in one show! Then our Square Roots Promotions Xmas show on 16th Dec with the awesome The Steve & Ben Somers Country Band - not many tickets left for either show, so please lets get these sold out and celebrate like its,err, 2017...:) x

What a show those guys put on, truly amazing musicianship. Loved every minute, thank you.

Well said Ken Brown the whole experience is the combination of you and the team - the audience and our hosts. Add top quality artists and you have a magic recipe for an unforgettable time. Thanks as always.

It was a great night; I had been vacillating between them and Von Hertzen Brothers at Talking Heads but I think I made the right choice as it was really uplifting (and meant not getting the train to Southampton!)
