Tuesday 17th December 2019
@ Aces And Eights Bar
Heal Thyself Songman! is Ger Lane's solo show residency every third Tuesday of the month here at Aces and Eights, NW5.
This month Helen McCookerybook and Atomise Recordings join him on the 17th - with plenty of mulled wine! - to celebrate song and sound with new friends.
Ger's theme of "Heal Thyself Songman!" is a novel and adventurous journey through his own songs and performance in an exciting way to see how his work connects over the coming months as new music is released simultaneously. Just come along with a curious set of ears!
