There we were, sitting in Hove, lovers of music but too lazy to go out. So we thought 'why not use our newly-knocked-through front room to create an intimate space for musicians to perform?'. They can play their songs, sell their CDs and make a few quid - while we can bask in their reflected glory like the fame-whores we are. Mmmm...

So, we promise you:

  • an up-close-and-personal experience (it's big enough, but not that big)
  • some great singer-songwriter-instrumentalists
  • you'll get to see every slide and every hammer-on
  • and every penny of your donation will go to the performer

Saturday, June 10th 2017 - Fraser Nimmo

Stacks Image 8
Fraser Nimmo is a Scottish singer, songwriter and storyteller who combines traditional songs with his own material in a memorable live show that's both heartfelt and hilarious.

His songs cover the whole gamut of human experience and are delivered with flair, wit, compassion and serious digital dexterity on guitar and banjo. Essentially a serious songwriter who has been known to raise more than the occasional eyebrow, glass, roof, chuckle and consciousness, he treats his own material with the same conviction that he brings to music from the Scottish tradition, believing both music forms to be inter-related and complimentary. He travels hither and yon singing songs of love, hate, loss, injustice, fear, outrage, bewilderment and Scotland!
"Fraser Nimmo's self-effacing humour and presentation belie a serious songwriter who delights in both aspects of his craft."
Ralph McTell

“Fraser Nimmo was a super opening act on one of our lengthy winter UK tours. Right from his opening song he had the audience in the palm of his hand and joining in on the choruses in true folk tradition. Lovely songs and banter and nice guitar playing too. If you get the chance to see him do.”
- Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention
