Grainne Duffy is a unique talent, raw and powerful, edgy and elegant. So far in her short career, Grainne has already graced the stage at Glastonbury for three electric performances and has toured much of Europe.

Recently Grainne was asked to open for Jools Holland on his tour. Her wonderful mix of blues rock and soul in her own material and her treatment of a few carefully selected standards, charged with true emotion and feeling can win over any audience and leave you begging for more. Grainne will take to the stage on Saturday 6 February at 8pm. Tickets are priced £14 each.

With Valentine’s just a few days away, why not treat a loved one to a night of great music and food at our popular Valentine’s Jazz Supper Club on Friday 12 February. Taking centre stage will be the hugely popular Martello Jazz Band who feature a sound reminiscent of the Dixieland bands of 1920’s New Orleans, stamped with their own brand of drive and flair. The menu for the evening will include spiced BBQ pork with stir-fried vegetables, creamy chicken pasta, Cajun spiced meatballs, all served with Cajun wedges, salads and breads. Tickets for the evening are £11 for the performance only, or £21 which includes supper.

An ideal Valentine treat for you and your loved one is the inimitable Eddi Reader. Having first hit the limelight in the 1980’s with the group ‘Fairground Attraction’ [who enjoyed huge chart success with their debut No.1 single ‘Perfect’ and album ‘First Of A Million Kisses’], Eddi went on to collaborate on many celebrated projects throughout the years, famously harmonizing with Annie Lennox while touring with ‘The Eurythmics’. However, it has been Eddi’s subsequent solo albums that have cemented her image as a powerful figure in British music. With an MBE for outstanding contributions to the arts, three BRIT awards, a number one single and eight critically acclaimed solo albums, what sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the performance. Eddi will perform on Saturday 13 February at 8pm. Tickets are priced £16 each.
