CamCRAG presents an evening of entertainment showcasing live music from local artists, interviews, poetry, refugee-related short films, all wrapped around our fun heckle-tastic pub quiz. And all free (although donations are very much encouraged!)
Watch it all live at facebook.com/events/1120798648287530
Musical acts include: Adam Thomas, Vic Lennard, Shaun Clark, Chris Andrews, False Colours, Honeywitch and Inter-city Crazy Train
Suffolk based singer/songwriter Adam Thomas is opening the show for us at 16.30.
At 16.50 Vic Lennard takes the stage
At 17.10 we have Shaun Clark, a solo singer/songwriter based within Hertfordshire. Gigging since 2011 his music is folk/acoustic but with a slightly different take on the stylings of these genres
At 17.30 we welcome Chris Andrews, a singer/ songwriter/ producer who plays and hosts live solo, duo and band shows around North Herts and Cambridge, recently supporting Tony Wright (Terrorvision) and Britpop legends Dodgy on their Homegrown 25th Anniversary Tour at Cambridge Junction
False Colours take the stage at 17.50. False Colours are an electro-acoustic folk duo. Their catchy, melodic music is consistently described as “unique,” and their performances “entertaining.” They have performed at some of East Anglia’s best and coolest festivals such as FolkEast (Soapbox Stage 2018 and 2019), Harlequin Fayre and Cosmic Puffin, and tour many of the region’s wonderful and varied folk clubs. False Colours were also award winners at the 2019 NMG Awards at the Apex in Bury St. Edmunds, where they were inducted into the hall of fame for completing a twenty week stint in the Cambridge 105 Radio Unsigned Chart.
At 18.15 Honeywitch is joining us for a set of their original alternative folk/indie (electric and acoustic)
Our last act before the Quiz is an acoustic set from Inter-City Crazy Train at 18.40
Inter City Crazy Train are an original ska/punk/reggae band formed in Cambridge in late 2009. Since then they have recorded three EPs which are available to stream and download on bandcamp and soundcloud.They have played all over the UK supporting bands such as The Selector, The Beat, New Town Kings and Citizen Fish to mention just a few.
19:00-21:00 Refugee-Themed ‘Calais Family Pub’ Quiz
21:00-22:30 Music from Elizabeth and Jameson, Collars, Dodobones and Rubyglass (timings to be3 confirmed)
At 2100 Elizabeth and Jameson open the show. They are an award-winning folk duo based in Bedfordshire. Hannah Elizabeth and Griff Jameson have joined forces to create an acoustic indie-folk sound, merging their individual musical backgrounds of traditional folk and folk pop/rock.
At 21.25 we welcome Dodobones. Hatching in 2009, DodoBones have since been attracting attention with raw and heartfelt lyrics, and seducing vocals. DodoBones are a hard working band, with over 150 gigs under their belts in the past 18 months. Their third studio album ‘Distracted’ can be found at gigs or on iTunes / Spotify, and they are currently recording their forth and working on their plan to take over the world in 2018.
At 21.50 Collars take the stage.
There are only be two of them, but Cambridgeshire duo Collars make as much of a racket as possible with as few hands as possible. Danielle sings while Kane plays guitar and beats at the same time thanks to some modded drums he negotiates with his feet. The results? Wholesome indie like your mama used to make! If your mama was Florence and your godparents were the White Stripes.
From 22.15 Rubyglass finish of the night for us.
Rubyglass is the US/UK brainchild of Sterling Powers (The Tennessee Walker) and Ethan Walter (Radar Brothers). A firm favourite on the Cambridge (and further afield) live music scene but soon to leave these shores so this may be the last chance to see the Cambridge line-up
Special thanks to Mark McGivern for recruiting our wonderful performers!
