Thursday 2 November, 7.30pm - Ben Maggs
Ben has been headlining all over the UK, selling out many of his own shows and supporting Leo Sayer on his UK Tour and previously The Proclaimers and The Christians. Inspired by wild nature, human nature and the nature of love, Ben creates tapestries with the colourful threads of his ‘stunningly beautiful vocals’, melodies and poetic lyrics, all wrapped in the warmth of artfully played acoustic guitar. 

Thursday 7 December, 7.30pm - Tori Rushton / Magik River
Magik River are an Earthy English band from Stratford-upon-Avon playing original compositions rooted in folk/blues and 60s pop music. The group's eclectic sounds is formed by Crispin’s sensitive but potent percussive work, Ben’s funky bass riffs, Tori’s shooting star cello solos and Jon’s chopping, scrubbing and gentle strumming on guitar. The mood emanating from their original work shifts from brooding folk songs, jump blues, dark sensual ballads and up-tempo foot tappers.
