2000trees Festival Rocks The Cotswolds

Stone Free Festival In Photographs

Not every music lover is automatically an outdoor festival goer. The idea of seeing different bands over a weekend might be appealing, but the prospect of torrential rain, mud, temperatures of 30 degrees, or sleeping in a tent can be enough to stop people from going...

Callaghan and Jesse Terry At Bush Hall, London

Callaghan and Jesse Terry have toured together in the USA, so it made absolute sense for these two to tour the UK together. Originally from the UK, Callaghan moved to Atlanta in summer 2010 to tour and record with grammy nominee Shawn Mullins after they connected via...

Electric Six Fire Up @ Academy Islington

  The Beast from the East wasn’t going to stop this already rearranged show from going ahead. Electric Six had sold this one out months in advance and the snow didn’t seem to stop anyone’s journey as they packed out the Academy Islington, London. Here is the concert...

Photo Story Frank Turner @ Tunbridge Wells Forum

The Forum at Tunbridge Wells has an enviable reputation for booking the next big thing before it’s the next big thing.  This has resulted in it surviving far longer than most small venues. Being able to get a slot to play there is seen as an endorsement and a possibly...
