Get your festival fix without leaving the borough as Acoustic Sundays brings the sounds of summer to the heart of Hackney all season long!

Our open mic musicians (and hopefully some sunshine) will warm us up from 2pm, before 6 brilliant acts - introduced by comedian and regular Acoustic Sundays MC, James Ross - will play us through until 7.

Expect an Eclectic Line-Up including:

BethanWyn Music - London based singer/songwriter and actress - Classically trained but raised on Vinyls, her love of old school jazz, blues and soul has hugely influenced her style but is given a fresh twist with a rich contemporary sound

Clare Birkett – Singer-songwriter whose influences range from the folk sounds of Bob Dylan and Laura Marling to trip-hop

Joe Garvey – hailing from Kingston, Joe’s witty songs are influenced by everything from hip‐hop to folk.

Bal De Bourdon – London-based band performing original arrangements of music from France, the Channel Islands and Cornwall, with a penchant for songs that are rich in melody, drama and stories

Lewis Barfoot – As part of her Summer Sundays 2016 tour, half Irish, half English songbird Lewis will grace us once again with her wonderful voice - deeply ensconced in the roots of folk

As ever, street food sensation, 2 Fingers ‘London’s original fish finger bad boys’ will be on hand with their latest incarnation of The Ultimate Fish Finger Sandwich Experience!

To keep you hydrated – our pop-up bar will be selling local and sensibly priced drinks – with beers from London Fields, along with gin, vodka and variety of soft drinks.

But first, see you on the 3rd July, 2pm at the Crypt!

Date : Sunday 3rd April 2016
Time : 2:30pm until around 7:00pm
Place : The Crypt Cafe, St. Peter's Church, Hackney, London, N1 4DA

On Sunday 3rd April 2016, Acoustic Sundays will see in the spring with another afternoon of lively and eclectic live music at St. Peter’s Crypt Café in Hackney!

Kicking off with an hour of open mic slots before a selection of hand-picked musicians, Acoustic Sundays offer performance opportunities for seasoned as well as new and up and coming musicians from all walks of life.

This month will see both new faces and returning favourites including:

Lewis Barfoot - Returning to Acoustic Sundays following the launch of debut EP ‘Catch Me’, songbird Lewis Barfoot has her voice deeply ensconced in the foots of folk music.

Days Are Done - a brand new modern Folk/Blues/Americana duo from Kingston-Upon-Thames who recently recorded a debut EP live to a sold out audience.

Nele Needs A Holiday - another familiar face, this London-based Belgian princess sings about the tragedies of daily life.

Kirt Debique - Hailing from the Pacific North West, Founder of Brick Lane Records, and fresh from the release of his debut solo album, singer songwriter Kirt Debique is popping over the pond to share his emotion-led music with Acoustic Sundays.

Jade Bird - a rising star on the London music scene, Jade Bird delivers a fantastic mix of country, pop and folk with a voice that can silence the busiest bar.

Our ‘sensibly priced pop-up bar’ will be keeping it local and celebrating treasures from the East End including beers from London Fields, gin from Victoria Park, plus vodka and soft drinks from Hackney Downs.

London's original fish finger bad boys 2 Fingers will be offering up “The Ultimate Fish Finger Sandwich Experience” including the delectable ‘Po$h’, made with sustainably sourced and responsibly caught cod loin steaks with home-made tartar sauce on salt and pepper crusted Bloomer loaf and the ever so moreish ‘Sweet Potato Fries’ with a light dusting of Spanish sweet smoked pimentón.

We’ll be springing into action from 2:30pm - see you at the crypt!
