On Sunday, at The Geese and Fountain, in Croxton Kerrial, Quiet Loner will debut. Quiet Loner is the pen-name of songwriter Matt Hill. Quiet Loner sings songs about love and fear, life and death and despair and hope. On a live stage Hill is an understated yet powerful performer delivering a show that is emotional, political, occasionally angry but nearly always gentle and human. Inspired by the storytelling traditions of American folk and country music, Hill’s songs also have a distinctly British lyrical bite (he loves Morrisey, Bragg and Costello).

Charlie Grace will take to the stage at The Half Moon on Sunday. With her bubbly personality, funny quips and comments, she is a most irreverent entertainer. Charlie performs music covers from the 60s to present day. Definitely not to be missed!
