£4 in advance from this site, or £5 entry on the door.

Jonni Slater’s music ranges from intimate and heartfelt to uplifting and cinematic, mixing a love of dramatic soundscapes with classic songwriting. He performs live with electric guitar or piano-based songs supported by electronic loops, breaks and ambient sounds.
“a talented, kaleidoscopic and charismatic song-writer"
“plays with the mind and heart while refusing to sit still long enough to be pigeonholed.”
"Slater’s music ... tends to start building block upon block until it towers by the end"
Maaike Siegerist is a Dutch jazz and "dark folk" singer-songwriter based in Bristol. Classic jazz, Argentine folk and gothic influences blend in the songs she writes on her Spanish guitar. Her voice is reminiscent of the American folk singer Joan Baez and Portuguese fado singer Cristina Branco. Maaike released her debut album Born Before the Wind in 2017, which has had airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music.
“Maaike’s ability to whisper directly to the listener’s emotions is impressive.”
