Keep the festive spirit going after our Xmas Fair with a Christmas bar night featuring the Cafe OTO Choir and The Sprigs!
Come down and hang out, enjoy our freshly stocked bar and browse through our records, books and posters. We have possibly the best beer in the world on tap from our friends at the Kernel plus an extensive range of spirits including Japanese whiskies alongside some great Single Malts from Scotland. Not to mention some exceptional beers in the fridge with a big range of Belgian greats including Dubbel, Westmalle Dubbel and the Trappistes Rochefort 10, as well as some new additions such as St Fullien and Mongozo Pils Gluten-Free beer.
The Cafe OTO choir is an informal group of voices who meet at Cafe OTO's project space. The Choir is open to all and non notated. Newcomers are welcome every session - singers and non singers. We have previously worked on pieces by Aine O Dwyer, Sarah Davachi and Annea Lockwood and with Imogen Palmer on Ukranian, Macedonian and Bulgarian folk songs.
“Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.” The Sprigs, bursting from the cold damp earth and into the light for a short while. Slap-dash free-folk from south of the river Thames with one CD-r released via Infant Tree in early 2021, and not much else to show or tell. Characterised by Time is Away as a ‘Beautifully scrappy meeting point between diaristic real-world clatter and a particular strain of folk-pop romanticism’.
