Three acts performing an eclectic repertoire, scrummy food and friends – all the ingredients for a great Saturday evening. And it’s all happening at the Orchard Cafe – come along and join us.
Sheila Moylan & Martin Lau
Sheila Moylan’s unique combination of traditional Irish harp with the smoky blues texture of her alto voice makes for a bitter-sweet experience. She reinterprets traditional songs and gives a folk slant to modern songs. Martin Lau’s improvised flute floats over the top, resulting in a captivating multi-layered performance.

Jimmy the Dog
Jim Ferrie grew up listening to Paul Gambaccini’s “American Top 100” and artists like Tom Petty, Steely Dan, Bruce Springsteen, Hall and Oates, Van Halen, Rick Springfield, Pat Benatar, Tom Waits, The Eagles and so on influenced his musical tastes. After years as a cover band keyboardist Ferrie discovered Steve Earle and others in the “Americana” genre and got the bug to start writing. Now he’s got some songs published and had a little bit of radioplay on the BBC and tries to get out and play open mics in London when he can. We are delighted he has found his way to the Orchard Cafe to play an acoustic set.
