Our hugely popular open mic returns this autumn - we can’t wait to see and hear all the talent on our doorstep and across London.

This is for everyone - an eclectic and inspiring mix of traditional folk, blues, americana, sea shanties and singer-songwriters.

We welcome new faces and seasoned players. There are plenty of spots so you can just come along on the night and put your name on the list, or contact us in advance to say you’re coming

Originally formed in 1977, Crows were a popular feature of the folk scene all the way through to the late 80s. 

Two of the original line-up remain in the revived super group - Mick Ryan and Dave Bordewey. They are now joined by Pete Harris (vocals, guitar, bouzouki) who adds a unique blend of power, warmth and harmony to the band’s vocal mix. Finally, the inimitable Paul Downes joins on guitar, banjo, mando-cello and harmonies. Not to be missed!
