Chris Green Artisan + Isambarde in Coventry 8th July (3) Artisan + Isambarde in Coventry 8th July 29 Jun 10

Hi folks

Well, it looks as though summer has finally arrived and this month (Thursday 8th July) we have an event almost as rare as a sunny day in the UK in June! Legendary vocal trio Artisan ( are our guests for this month as part of their one-off reunion tour.

Artisan are Hilary Spencer, Jacey Bedford and Brian Bedford. They are three friends who decided to sing together for fun way back in 1984 in deepest darkest Yorkshire. "It was pure luck," says Jacey, "Our voices blended so well, right from the start, that we had lots of encouragement from friends and that prompted us to work really hard. Within a couple of years we were being invited to festivals and events all over Britain. By 1988 we were getting so much work that we either had to give up singing or give up the day-jobs. Finally in 1989 we became full-time vocal harmonists. "

Since they hit the road they've taken their own brand of harmony and humour round Britain, Europe, Canada, the USA, Australia and Hong Kong. They've played venues both large and small, from folk clubs in upstairs pub rooms to open-air festivals with audiences of thousands. Artisan's special talent is making friends with an audience.

Support will be provided by the considerably less-pedigreed Isambarde who will also have copies of their latest opus 'Telling Tales'. Doors open at 7.30 and the show starts at 8.

You can book tickets in the usual ways - either call Jude on 07535 130975, drop us an email on or book online at

Tickets are 11 in advance or 12 on the door. Be there or be a four-sided thing!

All the best

Chris and the team
