St Harmonica's Blues Club: Tim Penn & the Second Line + Pulling Strings

Friday 31 March 8.30pm

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP (Entrance is in Crown Lane)  

202304 tim penn

It is always a real pleasure to serve up something piano driven at St Harmonicas and this Friday you will see for yourselves why they call this guy ’The Professor’. Tim Penn is one of the outstanding pianists in British Blues, a regular at Ronnie Scott’s, and this Friday he returns to St Harmonica’s leading his own 5-piece band The Second Line, one of the top New Orleans R&B outfits playing around London. It’s refreshing to see a true piano led evening and if you like Professor Longhair, Dr John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, Huey Smith and The Clowns, then this is a band that you won’t want to miss. In Tim’s own words “This is the blues, but with a great big smile on its face”.

Support comes from the established duo of Tig Trafford with Simon Bennett aka Pulling Strings.

Support starts at 8.30pm; main act starts around 9.10pm.

Admission is free to card holding St Harmonica’s Blues Club Members (membership costs just £10 for the year) otherwise £10 on the door. The hat is passed around to pay for the musicians.

See you soon,

Dave, Simon, & John


St Harmonica's at the Southgate Club

St Harmonica's is at the Southgate Club on Fridays - apart from the first Friday of the month. Instead of the first Friday of the month, St Harmonica's will be two days later, ie the Sunday after the first Friday (which in some months will be the second Sunday of the month).

Membership cards, free admission and the hat are back!

Our aim has always been to put on the best blues acts locally and make live music accessible and affordable. We need to have large and appreciative audiences, to reward the musicians appropriately, and to retain our home at the Southgate Club.

The feedback from Broomfield Blues and the Low Down Dogs gig last July was that most people prefer our old model of annual club membership, free admission and donations into the hat dependent upon what you can afford and what you feel the evening is worth.

From Friday 9th September we’ll be selling annual membership cards on the door at £10 for the year (September ’22 - August ’23). The membership will give free admission to all Friday gigs and Sunday jams. Non-members will be charged £10 on the door.

Coming up

Dates are all Fridays unless shown in red. There is normally no St Harmonica's on the first Friday of the month, when the Comedy Club is held in the hall.
