Nunney Acoustic Café May

Nunney Acoustic Café on Sunday 4 May features not one, but two brilliant artists: Sam Eason and Nick Tann.

Nunney Acoustic Cafe takes place monthly on the first Sunday of the month, from 2pm to 6pm-ish.

Live music includes performances by some of the best folk musicians the south west has to offer.

Sam Eason

Sam Eason

Sam Eason is a familiar face at Nunney Acoustic Café. The ginger-bearded singer/songwriter has just recorded a new EP. It’s called Leave The Dark Low and it was recorded in St Thomas A Becket church in Pucklechurch, Bristol… in less than an hour! It’s one vocal, one guitar, pretty much one take all the way through.

Learning lessons from the masters like Dylan, Taylor and Jedward, Sam likes to keep his songwriting simple and to the point; If you’re looking for fractured rhythms and 15/4 time signatures, steer clear. If, however, your heart is in need of some buttering by a velvet spatula of melodies and tenderness, Sam may just be your man.

A relative late-comer to the troubadour profession, Sam has gone from a handful of open mic appearances during ’07-’10, to having a pretty eventful time from 2011 onwards, with a headline at The Fleece plus support slots with David McAlmont, Sandi Thom and James Vincent McMorrow.

The Sam Eason Live Experience™ will generally find Sam playing solo with a looping pedal to add layers to his sound, with occasional appearances by his songbird wife to bring the yin to his vocal yang.


There’s more on Sam’s own website and his Facebook page.

Nick Tann

Nick Tann

Nick Tann

Nick is a full-time singer, composer, performer and professional musician based in Eastleigh, Hampshire. He writes powerful and soulful music that draws from many musical influences.

Nick performs with 6 and 12 string guitars all over the world. He also plays bass guitar for the rock band COAST, performing all over the UK and Europe.

“Tann is a real wordsmith, the songs have a well thought out element, I guess the simple reference would be Jeff Buckley, but to an extent that’s lazy journalism and it doesn’t tell the whole story. There is enough in Tann’s songs to show who his influences are, but that’s balanced with enough individuality to identify him as his own man.” Fatea Magazine

“The most obvious selling points of his music are a wonderfully expressive and technically wide vocal range and the ability to wring a playing style out of his twelve string guitar that sits somewhere beyond the merely rhythmic and fleshed out with delicate intricacies and atmospheric pauses that he works into the music. The devil, as they say, is in the detail and it is Nick’s understanding of this that raises his music above the competition.” GreenMan Music


More information is available on Nick’s website and Facebook page.

Other performers on Sunday will include the acoustic folk band Light Falls Forward, who will perform songs from their new EP Sleeptalking. Check out their Facebook page for more details.
