Acoustic session moves to new venue
The Open Hearth Acoustic session – the monthly extravaganza of acoustic-based music (very much ‘based’: the club is certainly not disinclined towards amplification), the spoken word and comedy moves, to The Unicorn in Pontypool, and the pub’s large upstairs room, for the visit of Shootin’ the Crow on Thursday, September 9th.
Shootin’ the Crow present a wide repertoire of toe tapping material, much of it their own, conveyed with an easy, infectious manner. The band’s self-description sums it all up very well: ‘Think Hillbilly meets Country Rock meets Rock n Roll meets Folk .…if we can get away with it we do it….don’t get hung up on genre’s ..pinning a label could kinda hurt ya head’. Skilful musicianship from three guys who draw audiences in to the camaraderie of a band that clearly enjoys what it’s doing.
Despite the venue change, the basics of the session will be maintained: an open mic starting at around 7.30pm with the band on stage at around 9pm; the suggested donation of at least £3; the raffle; etc.
