Yet another amazing week for the Nottingham music scene. This week sees two fine selections of top acoustic talent in the week, and a right mix up of some of Nottingham’s best local talent at the weekend.


Over at The Maze on Wednesday, you’ll find loads of great acoustic performances thanks to HUSH!

CONNOR SPRAY will be opening the night with his edgy, Oasis-esque Acoustic sounds. With a strong stage presence and an incredibly unique tone to his voice, we’re sure Connor will set the night off to a great start!

Next up we’ll have the retro Indie-Pop sounds of JAMES GOOCH. You may have seen him about with his band SAME STREETS, but this time you can expect to see the lad performing some heartwarming solo acoustic goodness.

ANWYN WILLIAMS will also be gracing us with her Acoustic-Folky sounds. She’s won plenty of people over after performing with RYAN THOMAS over the past few months; and we’re sure that her beautiful solo songs will win you over too.

We’ll also have some Acoustic-Pop from ADAM CLARKSON, frontman of wonky-pop pioneers CAPTAIN DANGEROUS; as well as some gritty Bluesy Soul from RAPH ACHACHE.

Jamie Beau from Derby will also be performing.

Price: £3
Doors: 7:30PM


Next up, at Malt Cross on Thursday you can expect loads of great local acts thanks to Under The Tree!

JOHN HARDY will be bringing his soft acoustic sounds to the proceedings, whilst BEN HAYNES singer-songwriter vibes are sure to have you hooked on every word. Both are influenced by some of the greatest songwriters of all time they both craft some incredible songs.

JOY MUMFORD’s Folky-Soul sounds are sure to have you hooked from the second she gets on stage. She’s got plenty of great new songs ready for her latest EP, so we suggest checking out our Future Session with her, learning all the words, and then heading on down and singing along! Quietly though, this is an acoustic set you know!

With a sound that’s well beyond his years, LUKE WHITTEMORE is sure to impress with his heavily Americana influenced material. You can also expect ROBYN HUGHES-JONES’ sultry Acoustic sounds to fill the room. Known for her cheeky yet relatable songwriting and beautiful soulful voice, we’re sure she’ll win over plenty of new fans.

To round off an incredible night of talent we have some more singer-songwriter sounds, this time from ARTIT AUKKO. With an incredibly powerful voice and stage presence, he’ll round off the night in style.

Price: Free
Doors: 7PM


Last up on our Top Three, we have loads of great local acts at Bunkers Hill on Friday, thanks to I’m Not From London.

Topping the Notts bill we have the savage Indie five piece, THE WICKETS. They’ve been in the game for more than ten years now and they’re still sounding as strong as ever. We can’t wait to get a little crazy to their Alt-Rock sounds!

ONEGIRLONEBOY will be bringing their dark Electro-Pop to the stage. The duo put on quite a performance, and when you see their beautiful voices come together live, we’re sure you’ll be blown away. Psstt, the way to remember the name is ladies first!

POIROT’S BOYS will also be performing. They’re a fairly new band who we can’t find much on, but according to their bio they’re an “autobiographical avant-skiffle trio of brothers from present-day Nottingham”. So we’ll just have to wait and see what kind of interesting performance these guys put on.

Finally we have the rather interestingly named BAYBO SQUAYBO. The band haven’t played many gigs together yet, but we’re sure their in your face high-energy Rock will have you desperate to see them again.

Price: Free
Doors: 7:30PM
