I guess virtually all of us read Mudcat because we are interested in Folk-related music, but even the most ardent folk fans usually have another string to their bow. Sadly it is often with an underlying sense of guilt that they visit it in public!
NO MORE !!
From March 12th at the Seven Stars, Foots Cray High Street, Sidcup DA14 5HJ a new Open Mike and Guest session is being launched where all styles of music will be welcomed.
The sessions, operating under the title Seven Stars Live will run on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, alternating with the extremely popular and successful Crayside Live events run by Sue and Trevor, which do have their base in folk music. This means that you will be able to go to the Seven Stars any Saturday evening knowing that there will be live music.
As with Crayside Live the aim is to attract high quality acts and from experience I know that Mudcat is full of them :-)
Anyone who would like to book a slot at one of the new sessions can add their name to the priority list by sending an e-mail to "bookings [at] sevenstarslive [dot] co [dot] uk". I would also be delighted to hear from anyone who would be interested in a guest hotspot or having a slightly longer featured artist slot.
A new website has been created – Seven Stars Live
As always, listeners are as welcome as players and I look forward to greeting as many old (and young) friends as possible at this exciting new venture
all the best
