IMG_4905.JPG

5:00pm - 6:00am / FREE ENTRY | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7:30PM | GIG 6PM

Elizabeth is an English musician; a Bath based, Leeds-visiting singer songwriter from Hull, UK. She draws influence from Jade Bird, Billie Marten and the poetry of Dominique Christina in their brutal, beautiful wordsmithery.

Familiar yet curious lyrics, this feminist indie folk is not for the faint hearted. Having recently finished her debut UK tour, Elizabeth played to some packed out crowds in iconic venues such as The Brunswick, Brighton and The New Adelphi Club in Hull. Her raw guitar lines are the perfect backdrop for her goosebump filled vocal performances and makes each show an intimate journey of song and poetry. Entwining soulful melodies with spoken word, Elizabeth Pickering stomps into each performance as though the audience are her best friends and demands to change the world.

Andy Lawrenson learned to play the violin through busking on the streets of Europe, Scandinavia, England, Scotland and Ireland, before returning to University of Northumbria to complete a music degree in the mid 1980’s. He was a prominent figure on the North East Folk and Jazz scene, working with Ian Carr, Keith Morris, Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, and the North East folk music agency Folkworks amongst others.

Simon O’Byrne has been a professional guitarist for over two decades. His accomplished guitar playing celebrates the style and swing of the jazz-genius Django Reinhardt, mixed with a flamenco flourish and echoes of the great Paco de Lucia.

Paul Grainger started playing the double bass comparatively late in the day yet has quickly become an in-demand player on the North East scene and further afield.

He has worked with, among others, Anita Wardell, Tessa Souter, James Birkett, Daniel John Martin, George MacDonald and Alice Grace. He is also a founder of, and resident bass player for the highly regarded Newcastle based Jazz Cafe ‘Jam Sessions’.
