HAYES CARLL

HAYES CARLL at Hen and Chicken Mon 20 May 2019 from 7.30pm

 

Hayes Carll’s list of accomplishments is long and with a career full of critical acclaim and popular success he could have played it safe on What It Is, his sixth record, but he didn’t.

The result is a musically ambitious and lyrically deep statement of an artist in his creative prime with his wit and style never being more evident. Whether it’s with the put-you-in-picture detail of, “Beautiful Thing,” the not quite sheepish enough, dude-esque defence of dishonesty in, “Things You Don’t Wanna Know,” or the strong as a tree trunk declaration of love on, “I Will Stay,” he displays an increasing command of his poetic lexicon.

Writers most often wrestle with experience and expectations, either romanticizing the past or telling us how good it’s going to be when they get where they’re going. What It Is is a record that is rooted solidly in the present, revealing an artist in the emotional and intellectual here and now.

A local pub in the heart of Southville serving local ales, freshly prepared food & mouth watering wines.

The Hen is a fan of real ale & takes pride in pouring a great pint. Depending upon the season there are always three or four real ales on the bar, these tend to be local to the region with the guest ale changing every two weeks. The Chickens are Cask Marque accredited & have so far achieved 100% each year.

Famous stone-baked 12” pizzas are made from organic flour and you will often see our very own ‘Attila the hen’ kneading away to create their own dough. If you come down & visit on a Monday you can enjoy 2 fantastic pizzas for just £11 (lunch & dinner).

As the locals all know too well here at The Hen, the main man in charge of keeping all the chicks in check is Henry the pub cat who you will often see sat on his throne in the main bar.

Upstairs is really where the magic happens. Normally it plays host to a wonderful array of Comedy nights. you may be lucky enough to catch top names warming up for huge tours in this cosy room. Every now and then they also do music events.
