Three Monkeys Showcase with Tenderlore

December 16, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Three Monkeys is a monthly event where Steve Lowis and The Art House introduce three of the best acoustic musical talent around. The format is ‘in the round’ with all three performers on stage together, taking it in turns, one song at a time.

At Christmas we like to find a band that are a trio but who also play their own solo material, so this month we have:

Hayley McDonnell | Olly Lewis | Rob Kitney
(AKA Tenderlore!)

Together they form an Alternative Folk trio rich in harmony and lyrical intent. They met whilst at university in Southampton as fellow singer/songwriters. Inspired by each other’s music they began to collaborate on each other’s songs and make their mark on the local music scene.

Since their debut album launch in May 2015, the trio have continued to gig widely across the South. Recent gigs have seen Tenderlore supporting raucous folk rockers Mad Dog McCrea, 60s pop legends The Move, and acclaimed folk guitarist and singer Martin Simpson. Inspired by the likes of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, Fleet Foxes and Laura Marling, Tenderlore’s sound is the amalgamation of three individual musical identities blending as one.

Tickets are, £5 (early bird), £6.50, or £8 on the day. Advance ticket money for these events goes to the artists. On the day money goes to The Art House.

Sit back, relax, enjoy. The sound is first class, there’s a varied selection of craft ales, lagers and ciders in the bar downstairs, and a friendly audience who are there to enjoy the music, primarily. Always expect the unexpected and be prepared to find a makeshift instrument if the occasion arises.
