Well…. the gig may not be last minute but the fact that we are playing sure is. For the next few months we will be dishing out not one, but two Chalk Farm Folks for all you Americana, folk, country, bluegrass and blues fans out there. The first of our August double-down will be on this tropical evening at The Monarch in Camden and after a last minute pull out from one of the bands, Mahoney & The Moment will be stepping in.
Who knows maybe we should always leave the house for a gig with no instruments in tow and see what kind of a set we end up with?? It might be revolutionary!
Joining the bill this evening will be the great Freddie Keen, who with his full band brought the house down on our inaugural CFF at the start of the year. We will also have sets from The Dirty Quarter Dozen (a trio found within the band Sweet Bullets) and new friends of the evening The Tender Hips. Check out more details at the EVENT PAGE
Looking ahead our next CFF will be 26th August! See ya there…
In association with The Music House for Children , Mixellaneous Melodies and one of our favourite London venues, The Bush Hall, we will be performing tonight at Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush for their event ‘We Are London Summer‘. You’ll be able to find us on the Southern Terrace stage between 7pm – 8pm singing our little hearts out to the mass market consumers and Friday night diners of London.
If you fancy a new top or a window shop you know where to find us!
The last 14 days have been silly busy for us. What’s Cookin’, Radio Croydon, Chalk Farm Folk, a Fred Perry Charity event, and we’re still not done yet.
We were really pleased to help out when the Woodhouse store in Notting Hill asked us to play for their charity event to raise money for prostate cancer. You can see a few photos from the night below.
Also, Chalk Farm Folk was bash on Tuesday. Joined by The Frisbys, Lazy Heart Parade, & Suburban Dirts – we took over the Monarch with another winning night of tunes (making it the only reason people could be happy about England being out of the World Cup).
Lazy Heart Parade
TONIGHT! Chalk Farm Folk live at The Monarch is straight after the England game from 7pm..
This is gonna be an amazing night with live sets from The Frisbys, Lazy Heart Parade & Suburban Dirts and of course us!
If you missed us Friday night you can hear our appearance on Croydon Radio HERE ! Check out our chat with Jason Ross (pictured below) on his show Bound in Music with 3 live performances ‘Roadtrip’, ‘Never Enough’, and ‘Manahattan Girl Again’.
Many Thanks to Ramblin’ Steve from What’s Cookin’, the terrific audience at the ex serviceman’s club in Leytonstone, and Silvia De for the performance pic below. Some killer records were spun in between sets, we met some deeply talented fellow musicians, and the drinks are cheap mamma (!). Seriously, It’s a truly special atmosphere created at that venue and we definitely look forward to joining the line up again.
Tonight we will be heading South East for an interview at Croydon Radio with Jason Ross’ ‘Bound in Music’ on air at 8pm. The station has been cool enough to play our songs for the last 2 weeks and we’re thrilled to get the chance to have a studio session to round out a very busy few weeks. The hour show will be available as a podcast by tomorrow morning so anyone out of the London area can still get a listen in.
We don’t get down that way too often so the only shame tonight will be that we don’t have enough time to get dinner at Brixton Market on the way- ugh…
