Hi,
Anyone know where to look for acoustic music (or mixed) sessions of a weeknight in Birmingham/Solihull area?

Ideally beginner (and box) friendly with a good English content. But friendly and with good beer will do!

TIA
Malcolm

Hi, I've not been to sessions in Birmingham for years so I can't vouch for quality but here's on and the website below should link to others.

Trad Arts Team Event TRADITIONAL MUSIC SESSION : Third Sundays at the Prince of Wales, Alcester Road, Bham. All musicians welcome. Contact 0121 449 3189.

Cheers

Rich

If you go to the Hobgoblin shop at the Old Custard Factory in Digbeth they might know of stuff going on.

While the information posted above for the Black Diamond is correct, and it's an excellent club, it is by no means an acoustic music or mixed session, as the OP is looking for.

The Black Diamond has guest nights alternating with singers nights:

Indeed, in fact you can see the Crucible Trio there in April.

Cheers - unfortunately Fridays I head home :-(

Made it to the Prince of Wales - having discovered that there are two pubs of that name, and it's the one in Alcester Road, Moseley that holds the session. And has free parking.

Although the city centre one had a good range of ales. In fact, both do... So my visit to the wrong one wasn't wasted.

If you want more good beer try the Bartons Arms in Newtown. Amazing achitecture, Oakham beers and good food.
