John Reischman & The Jaybirds

May 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall, Chidham Lane/A259
Chidham, United Kingdom
£14

Bluegrass Unlimited calls John Reischman “one of the world’s undisputed masters” of the mandolin, famed…

Front Country

September 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall, Chidham Lane/A259
Chidham, United Kingdom

In a wood-panelled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound hell bent on merging the musical past with the future. The result lies somewhere between Indie-Folk and Americana, in a nether-region they've come to embrace as their own. This West Coast outfit was just a group of friends playing a monthly gig until 2012 and 2013 when Front Country gathered around a single microphone at the RockyGrass and Telluride festivals, and…
