Continuing our new occasional feature spot evenings in the Globe Malthouse we are pleased to welcome The Moonshine Serenaders on Sunday 19 October 2014. As with all our singers' nights admission is free. Please note that owing to the limited time available on this evening we will be pre-booking floor singers and so will be unable to offer floor spots on the night.

The Moonshine Serenaders
Fuelled by Moonshine and Shellac records, The Moonshine Serenaders provide swing jazz and jug band music (without a jug) to audiences hankering for a bygone age of swanee whistles, kazoos, wash tub basses, duck calls and many weirder and wonderfuler instruments.

They are: Stuart Toms - guitar, vocals, swanee whistle, mandolin, ukelele, kazoo, musical saw & more; Steve Ewart - tenor guitar, vocals, guitar, car horn, groan tube & more; Mike Dobbs - guitar; and Alastair Toms - washtub bass & percussion.

16 November 2014
Peter Knight’s Gigspanner has been hailed by Songlines magazine as 'another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool', but those in the know will tell you that there is more to Gigspanner than meets the eye. Without doubt a bedrock of British traditional music is to be expected from Steeleye Span’s legendary fiddle player. But Gigspanner’s musical reach flirts audaciously with Eastern European, French, Cajun, African and even Aboriginal influences transporting audiences on a 'blistering pace of a musical world tour' (Phil Widdows, Folkcast).
