There's a lot more to come so expect updates. Currently trying to squeeze in gigs with touring Americans and trying to keep the balance between folk/blues/other.


We have a small but highly dedicated band of regulars in The Top Bar - they know the times, place etc. but it has been brought to my notice that an (hopefully) ever increasing  number of new attendees DON'T know all the details. So here goes: UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED all the gigs are in The Top Bar @ The Queens Head, Chesterfield Road, Belper on a Saturday, doors open at 8.15, the performer is onstage around 9pm. the gigs finish about eleven (depending on audience reaction and performer stamina!!!) and it's pay on the door to get in. Of course there are sometimes variations but I e-mail everyone on our list with details during the week leading up. So get on the list
