The Six Bells Folk & Blues Club
Drop in and enjoy the warm, friendly, informal atmosphere at the 6
Bells on our fortnightly folk and blues music evenings. Bring an instrument and if
you want to play you will normally get the chance. We welcome the
accomplished and the beginner (well - the accomplished had to start
somewhere, so why not the 6 Bells?).
The music is acoustic but enhanced by a modest sound desk to give
you the all important support of a little amplification and reverb.
The evenings are presented by the terrific blues guitarist Chris Mansell
and friends. Make
sure you read Chris's
for a flavour of what is in store.
What you play or sing is up to you. Evenings vary from classical
piano, blues, country, folk, jazz - in fact, just about anything is
acceptable, even poets are tolerated here. If you just want to watch and listen then that's OK too,
there is no pressure to perform and as all performers need an
audience you will be equally appreciated. IMPORTANT - we don't all
sit round in a circle!
The Six Bells is a great East Sussex pub with good food at prices everyone can
afford so if you are hungry you can enjoy a meal before the music
starts at about 8:30.
Above - Hank Liddiard (Ok his real name is Chris, more poetic
licence - sorry).
