A long overdue return for Suzi MacGregor, singer and musician from West Wales, newly based in Bristol, and currently working on her debut album for Cuculi Records. Suzi began songwriting in an acoustic folk/pop duo, went on to study classical music, and has settled into a sound that spans genres whilst maintaining an elegant and soulful delivery. She is a graceful and heartfelt performer, and her voice and songs have rightly been described  as “heavenly.

Not long after mis amigos arrive back in the UK, they're heading for our little tucked away corner of Spain, Being Elliot’s first solo show of the year. We're hosting an intimate, lazy Sunday afternoon of Elliot’s spectacular, thought-provoking tunes along with the stories behind each song, sprinkled with his light-hearted anecdotes from our travels. Ell has spent the last decade helping countless other people develop their musical skills, and this year it’s time for him to showcase his own. Stick around to enjoy some delicious tapas with us in this atmospheric bar. Would be lovely to see you there. 3 - 5pm, Sunday 18th Feb.
