Location: 95-97 Charles St Northampton England NN1 3BG
Robert Bray and Friends The New Moon Big Tim Sansom
So as the bonfires start to burn low and the happy, smiling kiddies warm their little hands in the cheery glow of blazing police cars, why not stroll down to the Labour Club for a night featuring two of the town's top songwriters and a fresh acoustic trio from Oxford?
Robert Bray is a leading light on Northampton's acoustic scene and one of our most sophisticated songwriters. He also has a great guitar technique and a pack of talented friends to lend colour to his sound, including a top violinist and bassist Misery Wilson from Wilson and Ghost Train. I'm not sure how it's taken us so long to book him, but here he comes at last. Check out his world at:
The New Moon come from Oxford. Matt sings and plays guitar, Ian plays double bass and The Boy Cornelius is on the drums. They suggest echoes of XTC or perhaps Robyn Hitchcock, in the classic Middle English post-psychedelic style. This will be their first show in Northampton Town.
Big Tim Sansom is simply one of Northampton's best-loved performers. Lovely melodies and lyrics of such breathtaking complexity and insight that they will have you spluttering on your Budvar in delighted disbelief. Sometimes he even does poetry! Highly recommended, so please do make a point of getting in nice and early to enjoy his set.
This night is free, as it always is. The beers are good and cheap, the PA is sweet and the vibe is warm. Masters of Budvar nights are the place to be!
