Shuffle 2020 - Mini Shuffle 1 PosterGreetings fellow friends in isolation, we hope you are doing okay and looking out for one another. Obviously there are many more important things going on in the world right now than worrying about a local music festival but it is also at times like these that music, art, creativity in general, helps get us through or at least offers an oasis of calm where we can retreat to and forget the day-to-day worries for a bit. It is for this reason that we bring you news of a lovely little event happening this Saturday.

There have been a slew of video posts from friends and favourite artists helping to brighten the place up by sharing their songs from the sanctuary of their own homes so in the spirit of The Shuffle we thought that we would go one step further, assemble a whole bunch of our favourite musical people and put together a virtual mini-festival. A static shuffle if you like. A shufflette. A sonic soiree. And in the total reverse of our normal Shuffle antics, this time you get to stay put and we bring the performances to you.

Just so you know, as it stands we do expect the Shuffle to happen this year, but obviously everything depends on how long restrictions last, so stay indoors and follow the rules people, the sooner we get through this, the sooner we start seeing a bit of normality creeping back into our lives.

So, think of this groovesome gathering of sonic goodness, this front room fusion of music, this collection of cool kids and chipper tunes as a reminder that we will get through this and see each other at gigs again before long and also as something to help keep you sane in the meantime. 

So all you have to do is open our Facebook page here…

…crack open your favourite tipple, grab some snacks, just relax and watch some familiar faces ply their musical trade. If it goes well, we might even do more.  So join us at 15.15 on Saturday for the Shuffle Lockdown and remember –

“Stay Home, Stay Safe, Enjoy Live Music!”
