musicroom

The musicroom is a small music club in East Suffolk, presenting an eclectic range of innovative artists, broadly in the folk and improv music traditions. The sessions are in the intimate, informal setting of our barn, (not the studio) with a chance to socialise and share experiences of the music.

Next event is on Saturday 30th September, with fiddle and recorder player LAURA CANNELL

7.00pm for food and drinks, music at 8.00pm

Admission is £10 on the door to include support for the musicians and a (mostly vegetarian) buffet.
Cash bar for good wine and beer.

Numbers are limited, we can’t rely on sitting on the lawns again!
