The Songwriter Sessions return with a BANG …details below… 

GOJO’ MUSIC presents…
THE SONGWRITER SESSIONS…Sunday afternoons – once a month – Upstairs @ The Craven Arms, 47 Upper Gough St, Birmingham, B1 1JL.
Support this little musical gem of a ‘get together’…a cosy little upstairs room above a great little traditional city centre pub in the heart of Brum. Appreciative audiences of songwriters doing their own original works. Think of those classic old stories of intimate folk / blues clubs that sprang up in the 60s, but given a twist to accommodate the varying musical styles of the past decades bringing it right up to date with contemporary performers from near and far.
Add to that the great friendly atmosphere of The Craven, the award winning beers and independent ales oh and the quality traditional bar food of varying home baked cobs of your choice, sausage rolls, pork pies, scotch eggs etc etc…courtesy of John Brabbins, Sandie, Libbie and James.
