Ramsgate Arts Barge teams up with music hall to launch family-friendly matinee concerts – The Isle Of Thanet News


Concerts at the Ramsgate Music Hall in Turner Street

Family-friendly matinee concerts on the last Sunday of each month are launched by the Ramsgate Arts Barge group.

The live music sessions will take place between 2pm and 5pm at Ramsgate Music Hall, with the first event taking place next Sunday (September 25).

The shows are open to everyone and will feature a variety of musical genres over the months. Matinee shows are suitable for children.

Fresh off the Ramsgate Festival of Sound & Contrapop Festival performances, the launch event is an acoustic special featuring musicians from Ramsgate; Josh Flowers, Jenny Hall and Adam Coney.

Josh Flowers is a UK-based songwriter and musical collaborator. Her debut album Mellow Drama is out now. Josh is signed to Universal Publishing and is part of the transatlantic duo Echobaby.

Jenny Hall is a composer living in Ramsgate whose music is deeply rooted in the complexity of what it means to be human. Drawing inspiration from country, folk and Americana to tell stories of love, loss and vulnerability.

Adam Coney is a composer/guitarist with a keen sense of production aesthetics that draws inspiration from the classical, electronic, folk and contemporary jazz vernacular.

Tickets for the show are adults £10, children £5. Book at www.ramsgateartsbarge.org

With a full planning application approved in October 2021, the Ramsgate Arts Barge will be a ‘not-for-profit’ arts and culture space permanently moored in Ramsgate Royal Harbour.

The aim is to provide access to the arts to children aged 2 to 16 in Thanet through free after-school art classes, workshops, programs and classes.

Ramsgate Arts Barge CIC expects to complete refurbishment and conversion for public opening in autumn 2023
