New York's Curtis Eller makes a stop on his UK tour with songs about Buster Keaton, circus fires and pigeon racing. With a background in the circus and a heart stuck in the old days, Curtis tells his tales by banjo, yodelling and a little stage acrobatics.

Hollering torch-lit songs through rusty jugs and powered by a strict diet of whisky and smoked mackerel, Bristol based six piece Boxcar Aldous Huxley bring us their gullyjumping cornucopia of old time compositions.

Making a triology of banjo-ism, we're pleased to add to the bill My Two Toms. The Bristol duo mingle in melodies on ukulele and guitar with quick-picking mountain-goat-licking songs.

Round off your evening by dancing to reels, jigs and gin mill jives spun by John T Angle and the Spirit levels.
