Column Acoustic, which was four in June last year, is an active collaboration between Zebra Collective, Devonport Guildhall, and a team of volunteers.
The sessions attract people from the neighbourhood and across the city to the marvellous Guildhall to watch new, emerging and seasoned performers in the perfect acoustics of the Mayor’s Parlour.
As well as growing the cultural and recreational life of our community, such events contribute to the steady erosion of the long held negative stereotypes about Devonport.
Our November 2016 show was our new biggest ever: a massive party night that raised just over £1k for Plymouth Access to Housing’s Hardship Fund. That’s double our previous fundraising record. Thanks everyone who made it happen, from performers (including The Two Horsemen, pictured <photography Allen Howell>), through to you paying punters.
Crazy Arm: next stop for The Arm’s brand of acoustic folk and Americana after our recent show: Saturday 17th December, The Junction Mutley Plain, Doors 8pm. Ends around midnight. £5 (at the door). 4 acts. Walnut Falcons top the bill, with Crazy Arm just behind. 16+
