Abbie Finn tickets going...going...almost gone!

Tickets are on sale now for the Abbie Finn Trio's album launch gig at Prohibition Bar in Newcastle. Drummer Abbie recently recorded an album with saxophonist Harry Keeble and bassist Paul Grainger at Blank Studios in Newcastle and the trio will celebrate its imminent release by playing a socially distanced gig on Thursday October 29. 

Prohibition Bar offers a Covid-secure environment with comprehensive yet unobtrusive measures in place. Government guidelines dictate that the first floor space on Pink Lane near Central Station is limited to little more than half a dozen tables seating two or four people. 

Tickets: £10.00. + £1.00. bf for a table for two, £20.00. for a table for four + £2.00. bf are available here.  

Doors open at 7:00pm, gig starts at 8:00pm with everyone off the premises by 10:00pm. Abbie will have copies of the CD - Northern Perspective* - with her on the night. Buy one (ask nicely and Abbie and the boys will sign it!), it will make the ideal Christmas present! 

A review of Northern Perspective will be posted to BSH soon!
