New to Stokey Stop, Caroline Trettine takes to the MIC this Wednesday 23rd April to sing us into Spring with sweet melody..
Grab a bite to eat upstairs and take your cocktails downstairs and enjoy a mid-week serenading of folky-rock awesomeness.
PLEASE make sure you book a table, as we cannot guarantee there will be space to home your cocktails when the music starts!
Caroline Trettine sang and played guitar with the Blue Aeroplanes who comprised at that time: Gerard Langley, Nick Jacobs (Exploding Seagulls), John Langley (Strangelove), Angelo Bruschini (Massive Attack) and Dave Chapman. She then left the Aeroplanes to pursue a solo career in London. Securing a contract with Billy Bragg and Pete Jenner's Utility label, she recorded the Be A Devil album in 1990 at the Cathouse studios of Grant Showbiz (producer of Billy Bragg, The Smiths and The Fall). Successful tours with Bragg and Christy Moore, and appearances on regional and national BBC radio were met with critical acclaim. 'Like [Sandy] Denny, Trettine hovers over great melancholy with an almost detached air that only cuts closer to the quick. To be worthy of such a comparison this early on is no mean feat.'
