The Devil’s Interval

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

It’s been a while since adding any new music to this part of the site.. so a good place to start is with something a bit different. English folk group the Devil’s Interval are based in Newcastle – they’re a folk three-piece featuring Lauren McCormick, Jim Causley and Emily Portman. Well worth having a listen to some of their music!

Manchester Acoustic Music Nights

Monday, November 6th, 2006

Don’t forget we run three acoustic nights each month — Fuel Cafe Bar (Withington) on 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, then Trof (Fallowfield) every 3rd Wednesday… there’s a wide variety of acts playing at each one – both local (Manchester) and touring artists – so you’ll probably see some musicians you’ve heard of and some you haven’t!
