CHRIS T-T is our protagonist for the evening. A vaudeville, alt-folk hero and friend. Emerging from roots in late 1990s lo-fi and London-centric psych-folk, Chris T-T first gained acclaim for sarcastic, city-obsessed urban alt/folk music, including attacks on mainstream artists such as Dreaming Of Injured Popstars and minor hit Eminem Is Gay. Later he developed into an influential figure of UK song, straddling punk, psych-pop and English folk, inspiring a generation of successful home-grown artists.
Restlessly mobile, he has been lauded for 2 decades as one of the finest singer-songwriters the UK has produced, gaining critical acclaim & performing the biggest stages around the world, including Glastonbury, the British Olympics in 2012 and the Plinth in Trafalgar Square.
Chris has been a piano accompanist for Tom Robinson, Frank Turner and Jim Bob (Carter USM) and in 2011 took a one-man show of A.A. Milne’s 1920s children’s poetry to Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Active since 1997, this event will celebrate Chris's 20 years in music, clocking up over 2,200 gigs along the way, drawing from his 10 studio albums and wider catalogue including 7" vinyl only singles, b-sides, album tracks and his AA Milne work. For his dedicated fans, this is a simply not-to-be-missed event & all of this will be set on our baby-grand piano, located in our foyer.
Chris is also a popular public speaker, having spoke at TEDx, Louder Than Words, Great Escape Convention, SOAS, Boring Conference, Brighton Digital Festival, Interrogate! at Dartington Hall, AIM Music Connect, Leeds Uni, Falmouth Uni, Middlesex Uni and many others and is a contributor to publications such as The Morning Star (Sheffield) the NME, Louder Than War and was even the "blogger in residence" at Brighton's Royal Pavillion Museum.
Tickets are £8 in advance or £10 on the door.
