Our Gig List for the coming days/weeks/months is shown below. All the dates are subject to change, and if you are traveling a long way we advise you to phone and confirm. If you want to book tickets please phone us on 01792 473276 (rather than sending me an email). Please don't phone between 12 and 2pm as it's lunchtime and we're likely to be too busy cooking to staff the Box Office as well! We aren't open in the evenings unless we've got music on (or lasagne to make) so ring in the daytime (there's someone there from 8:30am-6pm, usually).

DO NOT COME UP TO US IN THE PUB AND TRY TO BOOK TICKETS. YOU HAVE TO CALL IN OR RING US UP. SORRY.

Doors usually open at 7:30pm, with support acts starting at 8:30pm. We don't reserve tables so if you intend sitting down to eat, be early. The kitchen stays open until about 9 or when the main act starts. We try and stick to what's advertised but musicians will be musicians!

Sat 13.09 No Thee No Ess plus support from Willis (rare solo gig for Rugfire songwriter) No Thee No Ess is a collaboration between two established figures in the South Wales arts and indie music scene – Andy Fung (Dererro, Cymbient) and Paul Battenbough (King of Despair). Writing and recording together in a free-form way, the songs have grown organically through a process similar to that used by the pair when creating their psychedelic paintings. £10
Thu 02.10 Al Lewis Al Lewis is a singer-songwriter from North Wales whose sound is reminiscent of the classic singer-songwriters of the 70s delivered with a modern twist. His debut English language album 'In the Wake' was nominated for the inaugural Welsh Music Prize. I think fans of Boo Hewerdine might discover their New Favourite Thing is Al Lewis. (Not this Al Lewis) £10

Sat 22.11 Kirsty McGee After a spell living in an oak tree, hitch-hiker turned songwriter McGee has been touring and writing fierce, restless, tender songs for over a decade. Beatnik by nature, the literate, even filmic, style of her output draws on auteurs like Jim Jarmusch and the Coen Brothers; combining humour and dry observation with a grainy old-time black-and-white feel and a deep sense of humanity. £10
Wed 03.12 Simone Felice tbc - please note the moving date!!! £15
Thu 04.12 Bluegrass Acoustic Picking Session Fancy learning to play bluegrass? Come and join us at this informal gathering of like minds! All abilities welcome

Alt.country:- teenage angst for middle aged people

If you're a band/artist or promoter email me at thechattery@hotmail.com. Please bear in mind that we have a LOT of demos, albums and emails sent to us and it takes us a while to get through them. Please also note that we are a small restaurant with a musical interest in the singer-songwriter/americana/alt.country/etc. If you play punk, nu-punk, post punk, hardcore, emo, screamo, grindcore, hip hop, breakbeat, drum'n'bass etc. your email will most likely be ignored and demo binned. We also have no interest in acts who list dancing above singing in their biographies and rely on backing tracks. Not sure whether to email me? Count the number of Dylan albums you can name, if it's less than 10 don't bother :-) .

Not sure whether to come and see a show in The Chattery? You can read a selection of nice things people have said about us here.

A brief history of live music at The Chattery can be found here. Including
some of the gigs you might've missed!
