Live Music : Tragic Roundabout

Tragic Roundabout are returning to their spiritual home on Friday 7th April and we cant wait! 

Knees up mother Russia! Balkan rhythms with a gypsy vibe! 

"Five musicians and a drummer". Clarinet, accordion, banjo, guitar, bass and drums with the occasional trombone or trumpet make sure that the music stays on the more robust side of the acoustic spectrum.

The band’s debut release, Here Comes The Lino Man, came out in 1994, and so far they've recorded five albums with a sixth in the making. Tragic have toured Europe many times from Spain to Scandanavia and have played at many festivals along the way including Glastonbury.

Live Music : Diamond Family Archive

The Diamond Family Archive are an English lo-fi, psych-folk, multi-instrumentalist duo.

Live, The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums, acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echos of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.

Foot-stomping, finger-picking, hollering vs pin-drop hush - fragile, lazy grace.

In the last year alone The Diamond Family Archive have played shows in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
