Live Music

After a break to write and promote new material, we are delighted to welcome Leonie Evans back to The Barn for a summer evening of intimate music in the unique Barn setting.

Our host for the evening, vocal talent and multi-instrumentalist Leonie Evans, also has a passion for history so plays a lot of pre war Jazz, blues, country, gospel and Latin music. Expect to hear an array of languages and her well known ability to play ‘Frumpet’ (her name for vocal trumpet). 
Leonie will be joined by her special musical guest for the evening.

“Like nothing else I’ve ever heard in my life, I was just blown away with her” Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6

“Jazz and Folk flirt en route to New Orleans via Canterbury with Evans’  slinky, supple vocal…One slot on Later with Jools holland is all it would take” Prog Magazine 

Leonie Evans has been performing since the age of 5 and has never stopped. With hundreds of collaborations with musicians from all over the world under her belt she’s created a catalogue of albums and a strong musical family.  

“Leonie Evans’ distinctive vocals were magical. An astonishingly good simulated trumpet sound in her understated stride she kept the audience in her thrall.” The Bristol Post

Doors and bar open at 7pm, Concert begins at 7.30pm.
