The Rose and Crown (Hose): ‘Claire L Shaw’ 4pm

‘Claire L Shaw’ is an exciting and unique talent playing around the UK. Little lady with a big, old guitar. Rich vocals are served warm with lashings of melody and soul. With a wealth of experience playing all kinds of venues and events, Claire shakes up the classic girl with a guitar ideal adding a unique and modern edge to well- known staples, at the same time presenting us with her own quirky and catchy brand of music.

The Geese and Fountain (Croxton Kerrial): Sunday Session ‘Mister J’ 5pm (Debut)

Nick has been performing guitar songs since his teenage years, including stints on Ibiza and Cyprus as well as on ships and across Europe. With a lifetime of entertaining under his belt, now settled in Peterborough, Nick is a truly entertaining performer, and a skilful guitarist.

His act pays tribute to some of the world’s greatest artists, in his own unique style. Re-creating the music of such artists including:

● The Shadows
● Buddy Holly
● Dire Straits
● Eric Clapton

A true nostalgic trip through the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, all this brings us to a floor filling finale of party hits.

The Nags Head (Harby): ‘Steve Faulkner’ 5pm

‘Steven Faulkner’ is one of the more entertaining of the covers artists currently playing around the UK. Whether it’s his passionate heartfelt delivery, his clever arrangements, or his use of different sounds and effects, his shows are ever to missed and always lots of fun. From The Beatles to Tenacious D via Wheatus and Vanilla Ice you know you’re in for a treat!

The Grapes: Open Mic Night Hosted by David Bowes 7pm

The Delectable ‘Dave Bowes takes the stage at the Grapes on Sunday Night when he hosts the first Open Mic night under 18s are welcome to play before 8pm so hopefully we can find some young and upcoming talent.

He plays a mean Hank as Dave Shadow and also plays a great collection of 60’s 70’s and 80’s to the present day. Dave has played with The Glitter Band and has been on stage with Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, Mud, The Searches, Blues Brothers and reached a pinnacle in his career when he played both Bass and Guitar (Although not at the same time lol!) in my own band RiffTrade

The Sugar Loaf (Ab Kettleby): ‘CJ Hatt’ 8.30pm

A second chance to catch the amazing ‘C J Hatt’, as he performs at The Sugar Loaf in Ab Kettleby. With his unique high-energy approach to be a one-man pub covers band. Not content with that, his own material is at least as good as any of the ‘famous’ stuff he can deliver with real style, and he’ll more than likely do requests as well.  CJ Hatt repertoire ranges from old classics through to modern hits while keeping you guessing what’s coming next too! With such an extensive setlist CJ Hatt can accommodate most requests too so come along and get involved in what always proves to be a highly entertaining and high energy performance that sets CJ head and shoulders above other acoustic acts! Not to be missed!

The Genny B (Generous Briton): DJ Simon and his any thing goes Karaoke

Bank Holiday Monday-FUNDAY 26th

The Nags Head (Harby): ‘The Boutones’ 1pm

The Nags Head (Harby): ‘The Boutones’ 1pm

From Simon “The best way to spend a hot summers day….in a beer garden, drink in hand, barefoot dancing to The Bous..XXXX
We’re on at 1, so nice and chilled…almost grown up!!! Notts folk – have a drive over ; – )

‘The Boutones’, always been one of my favourites, where born out of a desire to create something musically a little different. They do play covers, but steer away from the traditional format in terms song choice and style: playing them as though they might be originals. The experience gleaned as professional musicians along with a mutual love of soul, rhythm & blues and Americana plus tight harmonies and a vintage vibe gives the band a unique style. The result is a full diary of festival, private and of course Pub circuit gigs, along with studio time booked for a mini album.

There’s plenty to see and do at:




I always like it when the ‘Bous’ are playing, I get roll out a video that still sets the hairs standing up on the back of my neck. I went out and bought this song the very next day too! I remember standing there, filming this, and all I wanted to do was dance with Kimbra. Here’s that vid from my archive. Featuring Super-Dep Johnny Antcliffe on Lead-Guitar as Derek was injured at the time.

btw, It still makes me just wanna dance Blues with my Lass.

Sorry its not the HD Version of this (I did look!)


The Half Moon: D J Smooth 2 – 5pm
