Next event - This Friday! Digwyddiad Nesaf - Dydd Gwener nesaf!

We're back with another stonking line-up this Friday, so we thought we'd send you a gentle reminder by way of another newsletter. Yes, we know it's Good Friday, but what else are you going to do?

Full details are below, but before we get there please remember, if you want to unsubscribe from this newsletter, change your subscription to receive a Welsh version etc, then please visit the "Newsletter" page on the website ( for options. If that doesn't work, then come along to one of our gigs to complain, or just email us to let us know! 

And just before we move on the business of this week's gig, here's a brief reminder of the wonderful Shackleton Trio who played for us last month ...

The Shackleton Trio last month
Kitwhistle, Mark Blayney, Dexter Selboy & The Shonky Trio
Friday 19th April 2019
Kitwhistle / Emme Hastings
Mark Blayney
Dexter Selboy & The Shonky Trio
Emme Hastings first played at the club in July 2017, and was immediately pencilled in for a return visit!
Her emotive, raw vocals and finger picking style guitar captivates listeners. Best described as folk soul, her sound is natural and personal, resonating with artists like Laura Marling and Lisa Hannigan.

Gigging regularly around Bristol and Bath, with the odd appearance at Glastonbury, she is joined for this gig by Joe Louvaine on guitar and vocals, and together they make up two thirds of the trio Kitwhistle, who are generating a strong following particularly around the South West.
Dexter Selboy and the Shonky Trio are a quartet of highly talented musicians. Hard to pigeon-hole, their genre-fluid style incorporates elements of reggae, gypsy jazz and hip-hop.
There’s so much New Orleans slink in Dexter’s barfly blues music it’s hard to believe it comes from Bristol. That’s partly down to the impeccably shonky threesome of musicians behind him on bass, guitar and drums, and partly due to Dexter’s own commitment to gravelling around where the bottles roll, as Bristol’s answer to Tom Waits.
They are an original and dramatic musical force – sit tight and hold on to your hats!
Mark Blayney FRSA is a writer and performer based in Cardiff. He won the Somerset Maugham Prize for his novella Two Kinds of Silence and his second book, Conversations With Magic Stones, was described by John Bayley as 'Remarkable... as good as some of the best of Elizabeth Bowen's, and praise does not go higher than that.'

His work spans comedy, fiction and poetry. He has recently been touring his solo show, Be Your Own Life Coach ... with ABBA, and has also toured with the Lecture in Boney M Studies, a comedy extravaganza, at festivals including Wychwood and the Dinefwr Literature Festival.

He performs regularly with the Wordplay Cabaret, a smorgasbord (not as rude as it sounds) of noise, letters, numbers, static caravans and Lionel Richie songs.
