Cloak Room Sessions ft Guy Calhoun & Special Guest

— The Cloak and Dagger
Weekly sessions- This week's special guest Bethany Roberts!
price: entry is free


The Cloak and Dagger is kicking off the first of our acoustic sessions on Wednesday 27th November with Guy Calhoun and special guest Bethany Roberts.

Enjoy acoustic sessions in our Cloak Rooms- the Parlour is a perfect setting for an evening of sultry sounds and some good helpings of Louisiana style Creole Tapas.

Increasingly recognised as one of Bristol’s most accomplished singer-songwriters, Guy Calhoun’s rounded voice, crisp acoustic guitar and well -crafted songs reveal his clear heritage from classic British contemporary predecessors like John Martin, Nick Drake and Richard Thompson.

Guy once featured as the live guest musician on Radio 4's Loose Ends and has recorded and performed with musicians and producers from a widely diverse musical spectrum including DJ SUV, Broadway Project, Gorgon Sound, Tomorrow's Warriors, Pee Wee Ellis, Armagideon Sounds, the Easy Access Horns, James Morton and Stanton Warriors.

Founder member of the legendary Dub from Atlantis band, multi instrumentalist and Dub producer, Guy has a unique vocal and guitar style that is influenced by a wide range of genres including Roots Reggae, Soul Jazz, Latin, Funk and Blues.

Guy's music has been played by DJs from John Peel to Don Letts and Jah Shaka and on many radio stations including BBC World Service, BBC Radio 6 and BBC 1Extra

Bethany Roberts is a singer, composer, string player and poet. She crafts dreamlike songs and poems accompanied by intricate fingerpicked banjo, taking listeners into a hypnotic sonic world.

In 2016, she founded alt-folk songwriters' collective Hands of the Heron, and regularly performs live around the South West and the national festival circuit. She has collaborated locally and internationally with a diverse spectrum of musicians, including Ben Osborn, Beth Calverely (Poetry Machine), Rowan Elliott (Solana), Ishmael Ensemble, Waldo's Gift, Tankus the Henge, Shishko Disco and Oliver Wilde, and has composed music for theatre productions. She regularly teaches singing and songwriting, and hosts open mics and song circles around Bristol and at festivals.

Entry is free! To reserve a table please call us on 0117 329 4758
