Take 2 are on stage from 10pm on Saturday, January 9, or head out to the beer garden where the DJ will be be playing the tunes til late.
Crooked Jacks are up on Sunday at 9.30pm. They are a well-established ballad / folk group from the Midlands who have played in top venues in London, New York, and Amsterdam to name but a few. Their influences are The Dubliners, Dublin City Ramblers, The Pogues, Mumford and Sons, and the Clancys. The Crooked Jacks always deliver a very upbeat and varied performance that never fails to hit the spot.
And if your new year Thursdays aren't taken up with pounding the pavements in search of a newer, trimmer you, then stop in at The Snug Bar at 9.30pm to catch Gavin G.
