    We are looking for ACOUSTIC performers for our Friday night music events.

    usual terms and conditions apply, ie:

    We can't pay you but we do feed you.

    All door money is given by donation, and goes to the charity the cafe is supporting (currently Barefeet Theatre)

    We book two acts for each Friday.
    Soundcheck at 6.30pm
    Music starting at 8pm

    1st set 30 mins approx
    2nd set 40 mins approx

    NOVEMBER
    7 Dominic O'Neill + Richard from Heliopause
    14 (Cafe AGM - booking one act only)
    21 Gentry Morris, Eilidh Patterson, Mel Wiggins
    28 Steve McCann + Cathy Moorhead

    DECEMBER
    5 Steven McClintock (one act only)
    12 Cutaways + Albrecht's Pencil
    19 Kagura + Ria Maguire + John Gribbin

    JANUARY
    2 Esperi + Eskimos Fall
    9 Anthony Toner + The Reno Room
    16 Daveit Ferris + Stevie Mac
    23 Iain Holmes + Sang by Fire
    30 Tin Pot Operation + Bellwether State

    Please comment below, email me, myspace me or PM me if you are interested.

    If you haven't played the cafe before, a link to your music would be most useful.

    The cafe myspace is at myspace.com/commongroundsbelfast
    my email is rentaghost31@yahoo.co.uk

    If your band normally plays an electrifed set, have a think about how it might sound played acoustic, and get in touch if you think it could work. We cancope with the odd electric guitar or two....

    Hey

    I'd love to come and do a little accoustic set. Just me and my piano.

    I don't have any recordings of just me, but you can listen to the band stuff and see what you think.

    Hi Karen,
    I PMed you earlier on today, I don't want it to seem like I'm harassing you. I'd be available to play any of the dates above. A 30 min slot would probably suit best. Perhaps your not interested in me playing :( . Anyhow offer is there.
    www.myspace.com/hereismichaelbarr, check out my stuff if you haven't already.

    Allow me to plug myself :
    I'm looking for little acoustic gigs to record for my video podcast. Want artists to record in fun and imaginative new locations - cafes, street corners, the big wheel etc.
    Check out my work at www.bandwidthfilms.com (go to the 'podcast' tab)
    or my youtube page www.youtube.com/herebesquids where you can see a film I made of The National playing in an abandoned kitchen film set.

    Also filmed Fighting With Wire so far this year, have sessions lined up with Pocket Promise and Three Tales.....


    Let me know if that's something you're interested in...

    Cheers
    Will

    Would love to come and play a set. The myspace is not functional yet, but I can give you a rough idea... there's three of us- guitar, voice, mouth harp. We play blues music, and aslo roots. So many traditional songs and established blues numbers. Think Dylan, The Band, Leadbelly, Paul Butterfield... that's us. Teetering on the wall between blues, country and folk.

    Sorry, I'm afraid not rentaghost. I hope we can do so sooner rather than later, and I'll certainly let you know in that case.

    Hi Karen,

    I'm available any of those nights I believe.
    I would love to play Common Grounds again, although I do have bad memories of my 9 year old son being sick after drinking 4 marshmallow-laden hot chocolates.
    I blame the parents.
