Dec 12th : PINDROP CHRISTMAS SHOW in Long Ashton. £12.00/8.00 concess, call 07855935903 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you manage to bag a ticket we can promise you scarily acoustic music, a bag of new songs, some favourite old ones, a surprise guest or two, at least one to sing along with, a bowl of soup, a sweet teary moment, several obvious mistakes, standard lamps and carpets, chairs laid out in ragged lines, incense burning in the loo, some appallingly poor jokes. Usual Pindrop fare.
This will be a One Mic Stand, anyone can come (there is no such thing as a Member for this "Club"!). One mic means its never too loud and the music will be at its best in this cosy little space. Should be a great evening with a bunch of new songs and some of our favourite guests.

"To go to a Pindrop concert is
to set out on an adventure through an ever-changing acoustic
landscape of eccentric instruments and songs. This 9-piece
Bristol collective cut their own cloth, write their own songs
and, more unusually, make many of their own instruments. Expect
to hear the Tinklele (tin ukulele), Tinvolin
(tin violin), tin guitar, bizarre percussion, Celtic harp,
string bass, dobro, slide guitar, accordion, autoharp and
tin whistle, as well as beautiful multilayered harmonies.
These are serious musicians, but they never fail to send their
audiences home with a smile on their faces and a skip in their
step." (Tobacco Factory Website)
Meanwhile we've been making music around the kitchen table. Here's a track we'll be playing on Oct 8th called "Belleville", Wendy Hesse on Vocals, Martin gypsy violin.
