The success of The Old Town Hall’s newly re-opened Cellar Club continues with a great selection of musical performances in November.

If you’re a fan of the Cellar Club’s acoustic mic night, then November’s Acoustic Café theme is Remembrance, War and Peace and for all you jazz lovers out there there is the Clark Tracey Quintet on November 20.

The Acoustic Café welcomes poets, instrumentalists, spoken word artists and singer-songwriters.

This month’s guest performers are: Jipsy – who play songs ranging from sea-shanties to chilled-out Balkan-Latino grooves, passing through reggae, gypsy swing, jazz, country, and a sneaky bit of funk along the way.

Kim Lowings and The Greenwood – Stourbridge-based songwriter and Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer player Kim sings with an enchantingly pure voice.

The Acoustic Cafe will also feature a special contribution to a unique charity project, The Armistice Pals on November 27.

This initiative, championed by BBC Radio 2 and the national BBC network, involves a charity single and events across the country.

MC Daria Kulesh will lead the featured artists (Jipsy plus Kim Lowings and The Greenwood), the floor spot performers and the audience into a rendition of Pete Seeger’s timeless classic ‘Where Have all the Flowers Gone’.

Everyone is invited to be a part of this special moment from on Thursday November 27 (7.30pm until late). Tickets are £5 and £2 
for performers.

Having just released his latest CD to critic al acclaim and following a successful UK tour earlier this year, Clark Tracey leads a band of superb young musicians on Thursday November 20.

Tracey has a reputation for sourcing talented emerging players and has won several awards for his drumming skills. The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £12, £10 concession, £8 Herts Jazz Members/Dacorum Card, £5 Students and Under 21s.

Also in The Cellar Club this month is Keith James – the Songs of Leonard Cohen this Friday (8pm).
