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).


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!

Growling Old Men: John Lowell and Ben Winship

The duo makes an uncompromising music that fits somewhere between bluegrass and americana. Their playing is fluid and inventive, the vocals tight, and the arrangements fresh. Energetic picking and fine singing in an unpretentious set - Relix Magazine  
Sat 3.10 O'Hooley and Tidow ‘BEST DUO’ BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS 2015 FINALISTS performing "Summats brewing micro tour" -a tour dedicated to "Real ale, real music and real people"! Sounds about perfect to me! Listen to this £10
Fri 9.10 Simone Felice One of the most captivating performers we've seen at The Chattery Simone always delivers a spellbinding show. Performing with Anna Mitchell. Watch this to see what I mean. £15
Thu 15.10 Gilmore and Roberts Previously nominated twice at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Gilmore & Roberts cover a broader and more contemporary genre-spectrum than might be expected from a duo wielding guitar, fiddle and mandolin. £10
Fri 23.10 Do Not Go Gentle Festival Festival in the spirit of Swansea's most lauded poet. Tickets for the festival will need to be purchased in advance.  
Sat 24.10 Do Not Go Gentle Festival    
Sat 31.10 Lewis and Leigh Al Lewis (who has often been found supporting Paper Aeroplanes, and who played an excellent solo show not so long ago) has teamed up with Alva Leigh to create a unique blend of Celtic folk and Americana... or 'Celticana' as they like to call it. £10
Sat 28.11 Hatful of Rain Purveyors of the finest in Bluegrass it's a treat to welcome the Hatfuls back to The Chattery! £10

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!
