Sat 20 - Sat 27 Andrew Clermont's Supper Club turns 20 with a special
100 page Photobook Almanac launch showing it’s spins between intimate pin drop to 18 piece
orchestras whirling out music from many backgrounds from Trad Country & old time Bluegrass
through to epic Dan Fogelberg; swing from Texas to Tarcutta, or immense Sixpence None the Richer
