Crouch End Festival 2016.

What a fabulous and very successful night at the first of the Crouch End Live music events. It took place at the beautifully atmospheric Supper Room at Hornsey Town Hall which resembles a speakeasy or a ’40s jazz bar (see photo above). Both the nights – the second will be on Friday 17th –  are part of Crouch End Festival.

Tuesday 14th was the Charthouse Music acoustic night. First on stage was Tom Heath who played a beautiful set of soulful songs.

He was followed by Kat Reyes, an equally talented singer songwriter who has been recently been playing mainly around east London and Shoreditch.

Next on stage were Belle and the Busker who filled the room with their storming set of folk-country, their two female vocalists harmonise beautifully.

The Investigation kept up the pace with a powerful set of bluesy-rocky numbers.

Vashti took the the stage for the final act of the night, and she kept us entertained with her songs and her banter – she has a dry wit which kept the audience amused and it was no surprise an encore was in order.
