Bush Hall - See folk in the beautifully formed interior
Time Out says
Posted: Sat Jan 5 2013
The small (capacity around 350) but beautifully formed Bush Hall has a fantastic chequered history, having been one of three venues built by publisher WC Humdall around 1904 as gifts for his three daughters, surviving not only various incarnations as a music/dance hall in the roaring '20s, soup kitchen, bingo hall, music rehearsal space and snooker club, but also bombardment during The Blitz. The exterior is unprepossessing, but inside the restored Edwardian plaster work impresses, as do the two-tier Austrian lead crystal chandeliers. The music programme covers folk, blues, country, Americana and alt.rock artists, both local and overseas.
What's on at Bush Hall
Rock 'n' roll
Good time Southern rock by the ex-Georgia Satellites singer-guitarist and colleagues.
Blues, roots and country, Folk, World
- Critics' choice
When North Carolina's MC Taylor isn't lecturing in folklore, he's playing lugubriously soulful, raggedly strung out and static-adorned alt country and rhythm 'n' blues.
Pop and rock
Almost a decade after they made their biggest splash with their single 'Love Me Like You', affable London pop-rock group The Magic Numbers are back with a melancholic, disco-edged fourth album. They've slowly slipped out of the public eye, but they remain...
Pop and rock
A former support act for Mumford & Sons, Bon Iver and Delta Spirit, Rateliff and his band bring his big troubadour sound to the stage as headliner tonight.
Pop, Country, Acoustic
Impassioned, rootsy pop-rockers Needtobreathe sing from their new album 'Rivers in the Wasteland'. Their folksy credentials are impeccable: the core of the band is a pair of brothers named Bear and Bo, who were raised in a town called Possum Kingdom.
