UPCOMING MUSIC AT THE HOT TIN
Samana (from 7:30pm on 26th October)
Laced with eerie, mystical atmosphere, alongside a plain-stated-gift for songwriting, Samana’s songs make for a strikingly distinct trip; one that you’ll be following with dedicated concentrations all the way through. - GoldFlake Paint
Black Sea Dahu (from 7:30pm on 30th November) are Swiss singer-songwriter Janine Cathrein and a gang of musical cohorts... Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters minus the LSD. Instead of dropping copious amounts of LSD and driving around in a VW bus, they trip out on sound and studio-related cabin fever. After releasing their highly acclaimed debut album “White Creatures” they have been touring relentlessly, currently clocking at 120 shows – and that’s just this year alone!
The band is currently gearing up for the release of their new EP entitled “No Fire In The Sand”, set to be released on September 27.

MUSIC CORDIALE IN KENT, 15-17 NOV
Three classical music concerts (see below) including A Concert for Roger at The Faversham Assembly Rooms at 11:30am on Sunday 17th November.
This will consist of a collection of songs and opera arias in celebration of Sir Roger Moate who died earlier this year and was a key figure leading the renovation of the Assembly Rooms. He was a great supporter of Musique Cordiale, and loved musical theatre, and in particular the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. This concert is a celebration of our friendship. He will be missed!
