El Bareto Sessions

Every Tuesday we get to have different and exciting bands come and entertain us, delight you wonderful friends and help create that special atmosphere. This Tuesday we have Mordrake coming back, bring their blend of gentle Americana.

If you don’t know what Americana is (I only recently learned) it is the sort of slow harmony laden country based songs you expect to hear along the Mississippi. Just listen to a moment or two of this video, from last time they joined us, and you’ll understand.

What a perfect way to spend an evening.


It is quite amazing how good the bands we have got to come and play have been. Already this year Tessa Smith has had us stunned at her vocal ability, and made us laugh at the chemistry between her and Gavin McGrath on guitar. Having played together for so many years, the banter between the two of them was utterly natural and kept everyone smiling.

Here is a video of one of the dafter songs, complete with comedy ending, for you to enjoy.

Love of the Brave were also magnificentwith their 70’s inspired folk, Mordrake with that gentle Americana and in February the raucous bluegrass of the Backyard Burners. All broadcast on Facebook with videos to follow.

We hope you get to enjoy the snow, and don’t let it get you down.
