The Community Centre bars final musical offering before Christmas – on Sunday 20th December -promises to be a lively, fun evening, featuring Carnivale Republic, an electro-acoustic quartet fusing elements of swing, world rhythms, improvisation and an exquisite melodic sensibility (it says here). Featuring Troy Redfern on guitar, Dave Kirk on drums, Nathan Emery on uke and Malcolm Melon on double bass, theyve certainly got the pedigree and at £5 on the door music fans would be mad to choose to spend the evening slumped in front of X Factor. 8.00pm is the advertised start time and 01547-528543 is the contact number for more info.
Carnival republic – live in the bar on Dec 20th
