>> room full of mirrors + righteous bees 1st june
one not to miss! two of cumbrias finest bands together for one night at ruskins bar in kendal (above dickie doodles).
room full of mirrors: they draw upon every rootsy genre they can get their grubby little mitts on, from celtic tunes to reggae grooves, eastern european vibes to americana, middle eastern sounds to english folk music, drawing it all together with a pop sensibility and an infectious groove...
the righteous bees: a collective of free-wheelin', fun lovin' children of the light of sweet soul music. bringing deep, timeless grooves from way back when to the here and now, they spread their funky love from smiling hills to dancing shores!
entry £3 on the door (bargain!), music from 8pm. see you there... you know you want to!
