Enjoy three great music performances in one night with our Songwriters Circle music night.
The format of this concert is becoming increasingly popular with audiences around the world. Three singer-songwriters take the stage together and take turns to introduce and perform a selection of their compositions. The format creates a comfortable, informal atmosphere that allows for interaction between the artists. Indeed, part of the enjoyment of this style of performance is that artists will often choose to perform something that then kicks off an artistic response from the other artists.
GREG HANCOCK, SARAH YEO, and JIMMY IRELAND are accomplished songwriters and performers who complement each other perfectly. Each has very different influences and approaches to song writing but they all share the passion for presenting stories and crystallised ideas and observations through the medium of song.
