Three great live music nights at the Patrick Kavanagh

Live Music at the Patrick Kavanagh

Doors 7.30                                                  Patrick Kavanagh, Woodbridge Rd, B13 8BX

Five live bands on Friday 30th June  – and more to come on the following two days.

Giant Elf Fist: part of Birmingham’s evolving underground Scene. Heavily influenced by the German Krautrock movement of the 70s.They recently supported Acid Mothers Temple as part of their world tour. They create dense layers of sound which take the audience to another level.


Rob Peters has worked with a plethora of great acts in a variety of roles but tonight is a rare chance to catch him centre stage and hear a batch of his own songs. Rob has made a number of solo albums down the years and will be playing a choice selection!


Tony Willé is a powerful performer of his own sensitive, original songs.  His quirky lyrics are aimed right at the heart with melodies and chord sequences that venture away from clichéd paths.  Previously with bands such as Felt, Parma Violets and The Day, Tony has returned to his acoustic roots.


Small Changes: guitar, violin and cello, all singers too!

They’ve recently supported Paul Young, Stackridge, Wishbone Ash’s Martin Turner and Babajack. They do their own songs in styles from pop, folk, country, blues and their own take on covers. Audience participation is encouraged!


JD McElwee: Voice accompanied by his fluid guitar playing or a cappella his songs are simple, captivating and memorable. “Words forlorn and words as thorns, some words can act as balm. When dark birds circle overhead it’s love that keeps us strong.”


£6 on the door.

New Art Gallery for Moseley

We are delighted that the first event of Moseley Festival 2017 will be the opening of a new gallery at Maison Mayci.

On 30th June, Maison Mayci owners and chefs, David and Remi Faveau, will launch Galerie Mayci at their Moseley cafe where, since 2010 they have provided high quality French patisserie and bakery products.

The brothers attribute their success, after opening their first cafe in Kings Heath in 2005, to a simple philosophy of quality ingredients, hand crafting, no fuss and affordable for everyone.  They are now applying the same philosophy to their latest venture Galerie Mayci.

The gallery will be showcasing high quality, affordable paintings and fine art prints, featuring the work of well known regional artists.

The inaugural exhibition at Galerie Mayci, curated by Peter Grego, will open on Friday June 30th.

The exhibition will present the work of printmaker Mike Allison, from his recent series, 100 Views of Birmingham. Mike began work on the 100 views project in December 2015, inspired by Japanese printmaker, Ando Hiroshige’s, 100 famous views of Edo (1856 – 1858).
