Well our acoustic night at the Eagle last night proved that it takes more than flu to put us off  –   there were Christmas Songs and accordians and Santa Rita and Cahons . Emily Barden popped in so we gave her a guitar and she performed several  songs from her lovely  album ‘Little Stories’,  There was dancing, Shazza threw her music everywhere, Kieran proved he can play pretty much anything on an acoustic guitar-and it was a lot of fun – We are back there again on Wednesday 9th January – come and see us x x

On the middle Wednesday of every month, we descend on The Eagle – with burning log fires, great beer and a lively atmosphere the popoularity of Acoustic Night is steadily growing. We handpick some of the best and most unusual local musicians to perform acoustically in this relaxed and friendly environment. Many of which scale down their usual full band line up to perform a mixture of original and popular music.

Last night saw a combination of acoustic guitars, harmonious vocals,  violin, sax, ukelele,  and banjo, A mixture of well loved classics , re- arranged favourites and original material all joined together with lots of banter !

Come and see us  – Next one 14th March 8:00pm

Posted on 30/11/11, filed under Gigs, News | No Comments

Northwood House came to life on Friday Night with a beautiful programme of live music.  Guests arrived and drank champagne in the  Rotunda while listening to young Opera singer Herbie Hill Reid. Moving through to the main house guests were welcomed by Spanish Guitar Duo Ashley Nicholls and Thomas Janes. Local Singer/Songwriter Paul Armfield played to a hushed audience in the Drawing Room, a charismatic mix of his own compositions, acoustic guitar and the poetry of Tennyson was  greatly enjoyed by everyone. West End Musical Director, Griff Johnson played an improvised jazz set on the beautiful Grand Piano in the candlelit Dining Room and was joined by the winners of The Arundel Festival Youth Vocal Cup, Sophie and Naomi Miller.

The evening was ended in style by The Sirens Band; an eight piece ensemble led by vocalists Anna Thompson and Sharon Blaikie who lit up the Ballroom with an eclectic mix of acoustic tunes, harmonies and dance floor anthems.  Beautiful canapes were provided throughout by All About Catering. Landon Sounds would like to thank the Trustees of Northwood House for allowing them the opportunity to present this showcase in such a unique venue.

Spokesman for Landon Sounds Kieran Moore says ‘Our aim was to bring together young and established musicians from the Mainland and the Island. A great evening was had by all and we hope to callaborate again in the future’. Ann Thwaites, Chairman of Trustees said, ‘We were pleased to host this showcase musical extravaganza  at Northwood House.   It was a fabulous evening of music from tranquillity to rock and roll.  If you weren’t there you missed a treat!’
