Adam Beattie & the Consultants + Brooke Sharkey
October 8, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 11:45 pm
The Consultants are a shifting group of musicians focused around band-leader and song writer Adam Beattie, whose distinctive voice ties together their eclectic mix of ‘folk stews and dirty blues’.
They are based in London where they perform varied, emotional shows, verging sometimes on the theatrical. Their most recent album ”Songs Of One Hundred Years’ is a collection of finely crafted charming and beautifully recorded songs, which remain genuinely contemporary whilst dealing in timeless ideas and traditional genres.
London based singer-songwriter Brooke Sharkey was raised between France and England. At the age of 16, her musician Father gave Brooke the best piece of advice, which was go out on the street and start busking the first few songs she’d written. Since then Brooke has released 2 EPs and her Debut album ‘One dress’, toured the UK, France and Italy with her backing band, and still busks to this day on London’s markets!
Brooke has lured a considerable audience with her intense and expressive style, drawing the listener into her ever more narrative songs with a spacious backdrop of chanson, blues, folk and Latin music. Her current band consists of Adam Beattie on double bass and backing vocals, Leander Lyons (Into The Moon) on electric guitar and Barny C Rockford on drums.
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-3pm and 6-10pm.
Music starts from 9pm
