The George has always been regarded as a live music venue and, in more recent times, has provided a multitude of musical acts ranging from your standard pub cover bands to dub, reggae, jazz, blues, 20 piece big-bands and even Celtic choirs.
But The George wants to be more proactive in promoting music and, as an active member of MusicACT, the old English Pub now boasts a staircase of musical opportunity starting with:
On the last Monday of each month, The George will sponsor a singer/songwriter evening where emerging artists can submit their songs for critique and discussion by a group of peers who will work with them to smooth out wrinkles and add some shine to lyrics.
The opportunity is then provided by The George for budding artists to claim their 15 seconds (minutes, actually!) and perform for an audience in return for a meal and drink. These nights allow artists to show their wares and get audience feedback in a relaxed and engaging environment.
