Carlton Club Gig tonight – Lisa Redford / Samson & Delilah (Waverton Collective)…

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

Hey everyone

I’m not actually playing at this one, but I thought I’d give you the heads-up about a gig at the Carlton Club tonight (Thursday 31st January) that I’m involved with. We’ve got Lisa Redford, Samson and Delilah, Laienda (Bristol), and Paul Oska. It starts from 8pm tonight, is £3 on the door, and goes till 11.30pm…. Beer is £1.85 a pint and wine is £1.25 a glass. Nice!


Hark To Towler near Bury – Pirate gig!

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

I’m playing in a pirate-themed bar on Friday, 11th January… It’s the Hark to Towler in Tottington. Drinks are pretty cheap, and it’s free entry… always a good night there!

Check out their (colourful!) website for details: It’s dead easy to get from Manchester to the bar by public transport too!

[Last updated May 2009]

Building on the other open mic guides for the North West, here’s a run-down of open mic nights happening in Lancaster. Post a comment if you know of any more…

(Thanks very much to Rob Thompson for his help with the info on this)

  • Every Tuesday – open mic at Golden Lion in Lancaster.
  • Every Wednesday: Acoustic Sessions at The Stonewell Tavern, Lower Church Street, Lancaster. Free
  • Last Sunday in every month – The Gregson Centre on Moor Lane, Lancaster.
  • Last Wednesday every month
  • – The Kenlis Arms “singers’ night” open mic. Usually gets very busy – country pub just a couple of miles east of Garstang

I’ve got lists of other open mics elsewhere on the site, including ones in Manchester and in Liverpool.
