6th OCTOBER SHERI KERSHAW BAND and 8 Floor spots

The Sheri Kershaw Band have made regular appearances over the years at the Long Room and they are always great value. Sheri is a one off, with a style that is unique. Singer, Songwriter and Band Leader, the SKB sets are always original and worth a careful listen. They are just so good!

Line up to be announced


27th OCTOBER TENNESSEE TWIN and 8 Floor spots

Tonight’s supporting acts are our Young Players


Tennessee Twin are a skilful acoustic duo playing original modern country music from their base in Cambridge, UK. Their original songs have quickly caught the admiration of British country audiences, blending memorable melodies, gritty yet thoughtful lyrics and delicious harmonies. Keren Morall - country commentator and podcast host, said of Tennessee Twin ‘These guys are exceptional. The emotion they bring with their songs is undeniable. Their story telling is second to none.’


10th NOVEMBER JO ASH and 8 Floor spots

A working musician with a wealth of capability: critically-acclaimed, award-nominated, instantly recognisable, unique vocals, intricate piano, strong melodies and dramatic songs.


Jo’s music is immersive. Her songs comment on life as she observes and experiences it, sometimes with wry humour, sometimes with heart-felt introspection, and sometimes with both.  And when her imagination takes flight into the world of the unexpected, they tell engaging stories of vampires, magicians and buried treasure! Audiences can’t get enough.



24th NOVEMBER 6 Acts x 4 Songs

8th DECEMBER   THURSDAY’S BAND and 8 Floor spots

One of the UK’s most intriguing acoustic bands - a unique combination of guitars and strings bringing to life intelligent original songwriting. Their repertoire has been described as spine-tingling, spellbinding, and ‘the most beautiful music I’ve heard in years’.


Coming from an eclectic background that includes folk, country, blues, cajun and orchestral music, the band includes Mark Gamon (guitar, vocals and songs); Matt Kelly (fiddle, viola, mandolin, vocals and songs); Rhys Wilson (guitar and vocals); and Abby Wollston (cello).
