March is here, and despite the snow we’re feeling a spring in our step! Our March lineup features uplifting music from all round the world, and of course our Paddy’s Day celebration on March 17th!
Kicking off March it’s a rare unplugged performance from Balothizer, who are here to play you Post-Cretan melodies on Thursday the 1st. The world vibes stay going thanks to instrumental Afro-Latin-Carribean-funk-rock group 7Suns, who perform on the 2nd with support from Afrofunk group Olubundi. We’re also particularly excited about a gig from the incredible DOJO, a collective of jazz and reggae musicians from London, Paris, Nigeria, and Lebanon, on March 10th.
Onto St Patrick’s Day – we’ve been planning an extra special party for quite some time with the wonderful Monster Ceilidh Band, known for fusing together folk & D’n’B to create what they term ‘Electrofolkmageddon’!!!! They’re heading up a lineup featuring the bagpipe toting Sesh Grenade, and Elliott Rush, who they’ll join onstage for favourite songs by artists like the Chieftains, Christy Moore, Thin Lizzy & The Saw Doctors. We’ll be kicking off proceedings from 7pm with one man show Roddy McDevitt, who you may know from the infamous Irish Piano Bar at Glastonbury festival. We’ll have music till 2am thanks to Bazza Ranks of Irish Moss Records on the decks.
Have a look on our website for a full outline of our events, which include a Balkan extravaganza with the Underscore Orkestra & RAKA on the 23rd, and Afrobeat fusion from Burkina Faso on the 30th with Boubacar Kafando & Zaama Nooma Band. Plenty of great free gigs too from artists like Whiskey Moon Face (on the 4th), Megs Emrys (8th) and Joe Strouzer (25th).
And finally, don’t forget that Mother’s Day is Sunday March 11th! Make sure your mum knows you care by treating her to a roast dinner at the Magic Garden – we’ll even throw in a free glass of prosecco for her! You can make a booking by calling us on 0207 622 4844.
We look forward to seeing you here at The Magic Garden!
