The Nottingham fightback

“Tram-a-geddon”

Brash, foolish and likely to be doomed, Bartons fight back the Monsters of the devious 'tram' attack, when the battle for the soul of the town that no one realised had begun had been all but lost!

TROUBADOUR ROSE

Troubadour Rose are one of the most promising bands to come out of England in the last few years. Their talent as great musicians and their knack for writing a hook makes them a definite band to watch. They supported Amy MacDonald on her last tour and are managed by the same team. They were received fantastic reviews.

Producer Pete Wilkinson has heralded Troubadour Rose as ‘…one of the most promising bands to come out of England in the last few years… their knack for writing a hook makes them a definite band to watch.'

NME say they are ‘your next burgeoning folk crush,… Check out Labour of Love and try not to swoon into a coma.

Paul WellerLove the songs, great band,!

Troubadour Rose met in London, November 2009. They comprise violin Lutheran Gary Bridgewood, banjo and mandolin player Lizzy O’Connor and songstress Bryony Afferson.

Their sound is a heady concoction of Afferson’s powerful vocals, her youth filled with Fleetwood Mac and PJ Harvey records, O’Connor’s background is steeped in Irish Trad’ sessions and now wields Banjo and Mandolin hooks to stunning effect. Kaleidoscopic fiddle player Bridgwood adds an exuberant and wild edge to the mix.

Amongst there accomplishments they composed the Strawberry Fields Soundtrack in collaboration with BBC Films, Film London and Microwave Film. Troubadour Rose’s ‘Labour of Love’ and ‘Find an Arrow’ feature as the ‘Strawberry Fields’ title tracks.

New Comedy Club

Categories // Events at Bartons

at Bartons, Chilwell, Nottingham

After the success of the NOT THE EDINBURGH COMEDY FESTIVAL the first night of the Comedy Club is at Bartons in Chilwell, Nottingham on Thursday August 9th and then every second Thursday.


Headlining is the unique duo Brian Damage and Krysstal. Very popular on the comedy circuit with their unconventional vaudeville-style act, their sometimes bawdy humour is punctuated by silly songs, dancing and plenty of jokes. Before they teamed up Brian was a musician and Krysstal an actress in Australia. Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is very funny and definitely something that you won't forget.

Support comes from the dynamic and really quite loud, Ben Schofield. His rock and roll spirit and confident act is a sure winner with the crowd. His penchant for mirth-making which began as a simple defence mechanism whilst growing up in Bradford continues to this day.
Completing the line-up is Ben Lawes. His finely honed anecdotes laced with memorable imagery are performed with an engaging laconic style

Compere for the night is the lively and affable Spiky Mike.

Tickets are £7 in advance

BARTONS TURNS EVERYTHING OFF!!!!!

Categories // Events at Bartons

UNPLUGGED MUSIC AT BARTONS

Venue:  Bartons, High Road, Chilwell, Nottingham
Dates: 9th June, 7th July, 4th August, 1st October, 6th October
Time:  7.30pm-11.30pm


With acoustic music and singer songwriters riding high in the charts, Bartons has announced a season of unplugged nights.
 
We are looking for the most talented performers, singers and songwriters to join in this fantastic opportunity to be part of Bartons summer of fun sized festivals.

Booked for the first Unplugged night is Jason McNiff a London based Yorkshireman of Irish and Polish descent. He has made four records of what is loosely described as Alt. Country or Americana, yet there is something very British about him. As Time Out attests, “McNiff’s quiet, intimate, fragile-sounding vocals draw you into his world– a melancholy, almost timeless place, through which he drifts, a romantic loner, a dreamer, at home with the blues.” He is often touted as one of the UK's most overlooked musical treasures - a great songwriter and top-notch finger-style guitarist. His new album, April Cruel (Fledg’ling) was released in 2011.

"One of the UK's best kept secrets" - Mojo

"A triumph of English-Americana" - Time Out

"The nearest thing out there to Bob Dylan and the Band" -
Sean Rowley BBC Radio London

"Dark songs of drunkenness and murder!" - The Independent

"A troubadour and one of the best singer/songwriters we have in this country"
Morning Star

"Not just a good songwriter, a truly great one" - Americana UK 9/10
 
Album of the Year for 2nd album Nobody's Son - as voted for by the staff at Americana UK
 
With Miss 600, Seven Little Sisters, THePETEBOX and Chris McDonald all performing at Bartons later on this year, the Gallery at Bartons is becoming a hub of local talent.
 
Organiser Carly Collingwood said “last year Bartons was a venue for the Oxjam festival and it was such a great success that we will be back later in the year and the Unplugged sessions will be extension to allow many more artists to take part.”
 
If you want to be considered contact us through www.bartonsplc.co.uk
 
Bartons Unplugged session are sponsored by NottinghamLive www.nottinghamlive.co.uk
 
This show is followed by many festivals including:
 
Not the Camden Market 3rd June 10am - 4pm
a day of stalls, food, drink, music and more

Acoustic music night
