St Harmonica's Blues Club: Tim Penn & The Second Line

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

202201 tim penn st harmonicas

Great to see good numbers last Friday to see Robin Bibi’s great performance. This week, we serve up something piano driven and you will see for yourselves why they call this guy ’The Professor’. Tim Penn is one of the outstanding pianists in British Blues, and a regular at Ronnie Scott’s. 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”.

Tickets are available here, or on the door ...

Support is from the ever popular That Blue Patch, Ruth and Dave, with their quirky and eclectic take on the blues.

Friday 28th January: We host the LSD Band for the first time. This blues/rock collective boasts a set list that includes classics from the Allman Brothers, early Fleetwood Mac, Cream, JJ Cale, Ry Cooder, Joe Walsh and many more..

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).

St Harmonica's will be sending out the link to book through their weekly email. To subscribe visit

We value our partnership with the Southgate Club and are working together to make sure everyone feels comfortable and can remain as safe as possible.

Capacity is still limited to 100, and the room has a fresh air ventilation system. As a small bar/social club, the Southgate Club is not affected by the new Plan B rules affecting cinemas, theatres, and larger venues; however, as we did last week we are asking audience members  to wear a mask or face covering when moving around the venue. We will, though, be keeping St Harmonica's safety measures under review, and trying to keep everything and everyone as safe as we can. We are grateful for your understanding and co-operation.

So that you know, we give 20 per cent of each week's ticket take to the Southgate Club to help this brilliant venue in their recovery.

Doors are at 7.45pm with support act at 8.30 followed by two sets from the main act.

In the unlikely event that the gig has to be cancelled due to Covid we'll immediately offer a full refund.

Our monthly Sunday Blues Jams  will continue with  free admission and a donation, cash or card, into the hat. 


Coming up

Dates shown in red are Sunday night jam sessions. Others are Friday nights. There is normally no St Harmonica's on the first Friday of the month, when the Comedy Club is held in the hall.
