    Willkommen at Charleston this Friday

    Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

    We have an extra special show this weekend arthritis grounds of Charleston house. The house was owned by Virginia Woolf’s sister Vanessa Bell with her husband Duncan Grant and over the years became the artistic home of the writers and painters that made up the Bloomsbury Group – including Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey.

    We’re not quite as influential as the Bloomsbury Group (yet!) but as a Sussex via London based community of like minded thinkers it seems like a nice fit to be playing in their beautiful home.

    The lineup features Rowan Coupland, Animal Magic Tricks, Woodpecker Wooliams and Laish. The event runs from 10pm – 11.30pm this Friday (24th) and forms part of Charleston’s excellent short story festival, Small Wonder. The event is totally acoustic.

    Tickets are available directly from Charleston on 01323 811626. The capacity is only 50 and at the time of writing I know there are fewer than 5 tickets remaining.

    Pete Roe confirmed for Brighton Komedia, 8th June

    Saturday, April 17th, 2010

    We are delighted to welcome Pete Roe back to Brighton after his wonderful set at Stanmer House last year. Tickets are on sale now at www.wegottickets.com/willkommen for just £6.50.

    Pete Roe is a gifted singer/songwriter, best known as the pianist and guitarist in Mercury Award nominee Laura Marling’s band. Having toured with Marling several times, opened for Mumford & Sons too many times to remember and worked as guitar tech for the Maccabees, Roe is now stepping in to the limelight and releasing a solo EP through Communion Records in June, the label run by Kev from Cherbourg and Ben from Mumford & Sons.

    His sound fuses the keen melodic ear and lyricism of his aforementioned friends with the guitar skills of Bert Jansch and John Martyn. His unique style sees complex melody, bass lines and percussive tapping simultaneously weaving in and out of each other and his soothing voice sits perfectly on top.
