On Thursday 11th December, Colour will evoke the spirit of American musical tradition with performances by contemporary musicians from the West Midlands region. Accompanying live sets by James Happenick, Jayne Powell and Dan Hartland will be projections of original slides depicting everyday life in America in the 1950s and 1960s.The event will take place at Alchemy Bar in Wolverhampton, the closest you could get to an American coffee house without a transatlantic trip, with its redbrick interior and roaring fireplaces.
Colour DJs will perform several sets dedicated to our favourite American country, folk and alternative country, including our picks of 2008 in those genres. Free homemade cakes and tex-mex snacks will also be there for your enjoyment!
Later this week we’ll post information about the artists performing, so please check back.
