Irish Session

Our Celtic/Irish session, with jigs and reels etc, starts at 8PM on the second Tuesday and fourth Monday of each month (except in December due to Christams markets, etc).
All welcome.

Thursday Night Sessions/Open Mic

Every Thursday we host a session for local or visiting musicians to showcase their talent.

The first Thursday of the month sees Adi hosting our Singer/Songwriter showcase, featuring all original works from both new and old hands in the song writing arena.  Adi also host our newest offering: ‘Launch Pad’ on the Third Thursday each month, which provides a forum for more serious musicians to road test new acts.  To get involved please contact the pub or Adi in advance, as these are proving very popular and slots are limited.

Eli hosts an Open Session on each other Thursday welcoming friends or guests, to either take over the Open Mic or to join in the session atmosphere at the end.  If you want to come along and join in just come early and speak to Eli about a slot.



‘Jazz on Sundays’ generally on the first three Sundays of each month, gigs starting at 8pm, the second Sunday being an Open Jazz Session run by John Walter or Tom Unwin.  On fourth Sundays we showcase talents in various genres on our Not Quite Jazz (NQJ) nights.  Look at the monthly flyer for more details and see basic listings below.

A local jazz musician of many years standing, his quartet will be playing a mix of jazz with some originals.

23rd   NO JAZZ TONIGHT  (We are busy preparing for our Christmas Eve Party)

After Traditional Community Carol Singing from the Bay Horse Horns (at 7.45), Dave Holland will be at the piano as usual, with his able assistant and bell-jingler Ann, with all your favourite Christmas songs.  From Bing Crosby to Eartha Kitt, Slade to the Pogues and back again.  Your participation is expected!

30th  NQJ Night – Four People
Definitely not Jazz night – we’ve taken the opportunity of this visiting folk band passing through Totnes.  Mostly Cornish, but with one Totnesian, they are a young original band with traditional roots.
