The Beestonian is running a new piece on Oxjam, on page 15, featuring details of the upcoming Unplugged event.
The venue is Middle Street Resource Centre, which you might think is somewhat unlikely, but it's actually a lovely setting for the small scale event, catering for about 80 people seated cabaret style. There'll be a licensed bar plus soft drinks, coffee and snacks. Plus it's only a 5 minute walk from the Interchange or buses (Indigo, 36, Y36) and the tram stop.
On the bill is folk punker Paul Carbuncle who was a great hit at last year's Takeover, where he played three sets in as many venues. Also performing will be local favourite and Oxjam totem Emma Bladon Jones — such a fabulous singer-songwrite, as if you didn't know!
We'll also be introducing two young singer-songwriters, Matt Humphries and Andrew Tucker (who is lead singer and songwriter for Ivoryserfs). Listen out for their unusual covers. Finally, completing the line-up is Dave Mooney, who combines his own songs about his travels in the east with covers from the skiffle and tea dance eras.
A fun evening in the White Lion last night, many thanks to the organisers for all their hard work and I hope you rasied lot's of cash.
Oxjam Beeston is featured in this month's issue of the Beestonian, on page 14.
It's May already and, as I write, people are peering at that strange yellowy thing in the sky and waxing lyrical about flowering things appearing all over the place.
Maybe, in your excitement at the sudden appearance of a phenomenon known as 'Spring', you've been anxiously looking around for signs that, desipite rumours to the contrary, one of Beeston's great institutions has survived the winter to re-emerge, leaner, fitter, brighter than before. Well, look no more: this article is the 'green shoot' you've been eagerly awaiting: the Oxjam Beeston Music Festival is back!
Beeston - you are incredible! Oxjam has raised a whopping £17,020 this year, thank you to all - oxjambeestontakeover.org
