Jaz Delorean – Monday 18th January at The Bicycle Shop
Jaz Delorean is a London based British singer, with the band Tankus the Henge and also on his own. He has a colourful past and a fascinating present. The songs that he sings and plays on the piano are tender observations of our fragile and sometimes twisted existence on this planet, taking inspiration from bar-room piano players of the Old West, the mournful melodies of his Cypriot ancestry and a patchwork of comic and tragic stories from growing up around a travelling funfair.
Will Robert – Monday 25th January at The Bicycle Shop

Entry £6 / Starts 8pm

Jess Morgan & Bryde – Sunday 31st January at The Bicycle Shop
