18th Nov Dan Wilde and Elliot Morris with Jack Carrack on percussion
Promoting his new album
What more can I tell you about Dan that more eminent pundits have already said? “engrossing and charismatic” — FOLKWORDS “love it, love it, love it” – JEREMY VINE BBC RADIO 2 “simply beautiful” – CLARE BALDING BBC RADIO 2 “wonderfully perceptive” – RICHARD MADELEY BBC RADIO 2…and it’s all true. Original music at it’s best, tuneful and catchy music, beautiful tones and charming lyrics…and such a gentle soul too. He’s played here two or three time already…and when you hear him, you will understand why.
With hundreds of gigs behind him – and a coveted Danny Kyle Award from Celtic Connections 2013 – Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.
The singer-songwriter, featured in Acoustic magazine as ‘The Next Big Thing’, taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs. This will be Elliot’s first headline spot here and with it, an album release, of which I’ve heard only good things: BBC Introducing called Lost & Found “An incredible debut album…just brilliant”, with Acoustic Magazine describing it as ‘“One heck of a debut, and one that never pauses to draw breath”…..and you can get your copy on the night.
Support comes from Dan who returns for his third or fourth performance here, this at least a measure of my confidence in the man and his music…here’s what a few other music pundits thought!
“engrossing and charismatic” — FOLKWORDS “love it, love it, love it” – JEREMY VINE BBC RADIO 2 “simply beautiful” – CLARE BALDING BBC RADIO 2 “wonderfully perceptive” – RICHARD MADELEY BBC RADIO 2.
Dan Wilde has been performing his own brand of richly observant folk both in the UK and around the world for the past seven years. And in that time, he’s developed a growing fan-base and a reputation amongst those who know as “a fantastic songwriting talent who without a doubt will deserve and demand your attention” (Eclectically Challenged). One life’s really special souls.
2nd Dec Mr Joe Slater & Lucy Mair
One day you will be telling your grand-children that Joe Slater used to play at The Drawingroom…and even though you’d been given the heads-up on how good he was…you missed getting to see him up close and dangerous because you did not book in time!
Please don’t be that ‘sad old git’ lamenting missed moments of mind-blowing magic and book NOW to see this extraordinary emerging talent. This boys and girls is a mountain in the making, come and witness history unfold. For your enjoyment, pleasure and food for your soul…I bring you…Joe Slater
9th Dec Eddy Smith Naomi Banks
The finest meshes of Soulful Blues and melodic Pop you will hear this year” – The Blues Mag
Eddy Smith and the 507 beat thousands of other acts to be named the UK’s best new talent of 2015.

17th Feb Mambo Jambo
Below is work in progress…pls ignore!!
this is work in progress:
Sylva Kay: spotted busking in Chesham outside Little Orchard in May 2016 and convinced by her music, Rew (their chef and my son) came over to tell me of her. She plays guitar, loops her voice and creates her own sound…there’s something of the quality of her voice which I’ve heard in one of the most extraordinary musicians I know, Juju (Little Fish/Candy Says) I know you’ll be intrigued by this girl; she brings real feeling and mood to her show and coming all the way from Oxford to see us…let’s see a big show of faces for both acts.
Joe Slater, Songwriter/Musician/Scouser as he describes himself on FB. A former star on Waterloo Road and now professional musician, he is driven, original and passionate about music. He has written music both the Beatles and Oasis would have been proud to put their names to.
