DOWN IN THE BASEMENT is a monthly Friday night of rockin’ country, blues, alt/indie folk and rock’n’roll in The Harrison basement. Three live bands each night, the basement bar will be open, the stereo will be loud and the chairs will be cleared away so get yer dancin’ shoes on!
Matt Owens form the recently defunct Noah & The Whale brings his new band Little Mammoths to the first of two dates at Down In The Basement, Featuring members of Noah & The Whale, and friends and cohorts of Mumford and Sons, the band of superb players have a set of tightly written good time roots rock stuffed full of hooks, with the ghosts John Cougar and Bob Seger rattling round their cages..

The Orange Circus are a raucous, footstompin’, full blooded Americana/ bluegrass act from the U.K and Virginia in America. A unique co-operative, they’re a family band that can include members of all ages from junior to senior. Concentrating mainly on updating traditional songs taken from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, they continue an historical musical lineage in a fresh, exciting way. Bring your dancing shoes- they put on a brilliantly entertaining show- great playing, beautiful harmonies and boundless energy are guaranteed to raise the roof, warm the heart and encourage the biggest of grins.

Favourites of Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 and Radio 6, and Gary Crowley on GLR, six piece Lazy Heart Parade play anthemic indie folk with a nod to Neutral Milk Hotel and Arcade Fire that combines ukelele, violin and mandolin with a modern indie rock electric edge and attitude. Whipsmart lyrics and superbly catchy hooks backed by excellent musicianship make for a splendid Saturday night act.
