I also recently performed a special acoustic set at Frank’s Bar on Bedford Street who are hosting live music on Wednesday and Sundayevenings. It’s a lovely intimate setting, also with great food, and provided a nice opportunity for me to play a mixture of original songs as well as tracks by artists I admire including Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, and also some indie favourites by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and New Order. The next acoustic session I am playing there is Sunday, October 29th. Live music starts around 8pm.
This weekend is the inaugural Deepdale Festival and I’m really looking forward to performing Sunday at 12pm on the Brick Barn Stage. In a beautiful North Norfolk setting and with an emphasis on showcasing all the wonderful local talent the area has to offer, the line up for the full weekend has now been announced.
There is more information on the festival here on the All Things Norfolk website:
Next month I am really proud to be part of Oxjam Norwich and will be playing at the Karma Kafe on Saturday 21st at 5pm. The full line up has also just been announced and as well as Karma Kafe, there will be live music at various venues across the city including The Birdcage, The Mash Tun and Rumsey Wells and later on a funk and soul afterparty. Full details are here: https://www.facebook.com/norwichoxjam/
At OPEN Norwich on Thursday 12th October there will be a fundraising gig in aid of Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind with the aim of giving young artists a chance to perform and help raise money and awareness for the hugely important issue of mental health. Breeze is among the performers on the evening and also on the line up is indie folk duo Red Dear, singer songwriter Ellie Bea and the dark pop of the excellent Hydra Lerna.
The event is called Landscapes of the Mind and earlier on, between 4.30-6.30pm in the OPEN Club Room, a digital workshop for 11-18 year olds is also being run in partnership with the Millennium Library. Based on celebrity culture, the free workshop aims to discuss celebrity culture and its impact on well being. It will provide an opportunity to write, perform, film and edit your own spoken word performance. Organiser Katharine Lyons Burke hopes to organise more events for young people in the future.

Grapevine for Music have continued to bring quality acoustic, folk and Americana music to the Guildhall. Also on October 12th Portland-based songwriter John Craigie will be performing as part of his first UK tour following the release of his new album No Rain, No Rose earlier in the year
Musically comparable to legendary songwriter John Prine, Craigie has become renowned as one of the best storytellers of our time. The vagabond troubadour has charmed audiences in all 50 US states and throughout Europe, with a DIY spirit seldom seen these days.
While touring solo and with the likes of Jack Johnson and Todd Snider, Craigie has taken the stage at festivals; sold out venues, intimate house concerts, centre camp at Burning Man and Gregory Alan Isakov’s farm. Craigie’s true home is on the road, playing and singing and telling stories to everyone who wants to listen.
There is excellent local support from Yve Mary B and guitarist Mark Howes who will be starting the evening with sets of soulful, bluesy Americana and Country/Folk.
