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!

Fri 03.06 Cardboard Fox All four musicians have their roots in bluegrass music but their collective influences reach much further and this shows in their music. Formed in late 2013 in Bath, England, the band features the sibling harmonies of Charlotte and Laura Carrivick (the Carrivick Sisters) on guitar/vocals and fiddle/vocals respectively, the extraordinary talents of young mandolin player Joe Tozer and the driving and technically demanding double bass playing and harmony vocals of John Breese. With a focus on original songs with a strong pop sensibility and energetic live shows, this is a group of musicians who are very, very excited about what this line up can create and that’s what makes this acoustic quartet so special. £10
Thu 09.06 Acoustic Pick An opportunity for players to join with others in a friendly and relaxed environment. Sessions based on folk/roots/americana with material for: guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, ukelele, dobro etc. Chord sheets available to download and on the night. £1
Sat 16.07 Buttonsville Local heroes return to treat us to an evening of classic songs you might not have heard of! Exemplary playing and intriguing choices keep everyone coming back for more. £5
Mon 18.07 The Tuttles Fast rising stars of the bluegrass scene, The Tuttles have collected numerous awards and accolades. Catch them now before they explode on to the arena circuit! Watch and be amazed. £10
Thu 21.07 BJ Barham

Lead vocalist from American Aquarium (who took their name from Wilco's I Am Trying To Break Your Heart). Dirty bar room blues and bourbon soaked tales of struggle. Jason Isbell recorded their last but one record (Burn.Flicker.Die - which I have had on repeat since it arrived).

Americana at its finest. Watch and listen.

If you like the Deadstring Brothers, Lucero or DBT's then you will LOVE this show!

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!
