Tier 2 restrictions may now be in place for Devon, but the show must go on! The Black Bird Collective, fromthewhitehouse and Dartington are slightly adjusting the hugely popular Saturday live music nights to work with these new guidelines. We present: Great Hall Sessions Supper Club…


We are inviting you to join us on cabaret-style, candlelit tables for a super special music and dining experience. We have a wonderful line-up of acts playing each Saturday in December (two per evening), and a menu full of delicious local and ethically produced suppers courtesy of the White Hart (including veggie and vegan options) – plus a bar fully stocked with great drinks from the south west.

SAT 26 DEC: Jambones & Colourful Genre

A double Boxing Day treat from two of Totnes’s finest musical collectives:

Colourful Genre is led by captivating and charismatic frontman John Elliott. The band crosses musical boundaries, creating a fusion of Folk, Funk, and Psychedelia which “deliver well-crafted songs with a huge originality and wit” (Martin Seager). The line up for this gig will include Jay Woodcock, Vivian Goodwin-Darke and Leo Brown. 

Heartfelt offerings from Totnes’ accomplished and eclectic musical trio: Jambones. Kris Howe, Chris Glassfield and Dave Atkins, influenced by their individual experience of diverse traditions, weave together a delicately triumphant tapestry of rich vocal harmony, acoustic guitar, classical guitar  and mandolin to playfully dance through a wide range of genres with inspired lyrics and joyful melodies. Prepare to be carried around the globe on a musical magic carpet ride!
