Sessions and Jams

Sussex is the land of the amateur musician with open mics, clubs and sessions all over the place.

Places I know to be good are

6 Bells Chiddingly – every 2nd Tuesday – bluesy but quite varied.

Bull, Ditchling. – every last Sunday of the month. Mainly traditional but there is a lurking trad jazz feel that regularly surfaces as a “Mardi Gras Morris” fusion. Has to be seen to be believed.

Kendal, Brighton. Run by my old chum Rhiannon Hill – more rock but eclectic also.

And now our two local events.

The Bull, Newick – run by Andy Millen every Tuesday. Feel different every week depending on who’s there – the centre for the night might be hendrixy, jazzy, folky or blues-y – you never can tell.

And last but not least – our very own folk session at the Crown in Newick run co-operatively by Jem Cooper, Martin Horsfall Steve Brown and your humble correspondent. Here is the team in action at the Bull open Mic. There will be a small prize for anyone who can guess what song we’re singing here.

The boys from the Crown - what's the song?
