I'm told there will be meat, drink, fire, and music. Four things I could not live without. If there is a heaven, I imagine it will look a lot like this.
LOCATION UPDATE! This round has been moved to the historic venue: The Half Moon Putney! Update your diaries and lets do this thing! :)
I can't friggin' wait to be at The Half Moon Putney sharing songs and stories with my dear talented friends: Ags Connolly, Rachel Button, and Lethbridge Owen.

Come saddle up to the veritable sonic buffet to chow down on what Nashville has to offer in the world of emerging country music. Folks that don't take no for an answer. Hell, they don't even give you a chance to say anything. They just keep doin' them.
I like to embarrass my friends in the form of a poster so that you'll come out and listen to them knock your face off with their great songwriting abilities. This one's In-The-Round Nashville style, and we'll take turns swapping stories and songs. Come along. We have a blast.
You bond with people you sing with; let us gather. We sing music that is old, or seems like it could be, or undoubtedly one day will be. The stuff is lovingly curated, pre-selected, and laid out in advance. The point is: songs a group can sing as one - and sing well. These are all printed up for everyone's convenience in a custom booklet. The leaders lead, but all take breaks ever so often to re-load our cups. Then more singin – and we do it a cappella. Mostly. Or with light touches on acoustic-y instruments. The goal is a public, night-time croon in the manner of better pubs of London, Belfast, or Dublin.
