CRH Music presents
Midnight Skyracer

Midnight Skyracer are the UK’s bluegrass supergroup par excellence. During the course of their short history their electrifying performances at major festivals such as Cambridge and Cropredy have earned them accolades such as “Probably the best bluegrass I have heard from a non-American band.” fRoots and “This is a band that can go toe to toe with anything on offer from bluegrass’s spiritual home on the other side of the Atlantic.” **** RnR Magazine.

With an all star line up array of talents including Leanne Thorose’s powerhouse vocals and driving mandolin, Tabitha Agnew’s sweet voice and virtuosic banjo playing, Eleanor Wilkie’s rock solid bass grooves, Laura Carrivick’s flair, being equally adept on both fiddle and dobro and twin sister Charlotte’s agility on the guitar, with both sisters filling in the vocal harmonies, Midnight Skyracer are setting the folk world on fire.

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.
