Where can I listen to
country music in London?
Don't miss out – this city doesn't sleep for any cowgirl. Check out these regular nights out in London that'll feed your country addiction!
A modern-country nightclub in Fulham
If you’re a fan of modern country music, check out Nash Nights UK, bringing the Nashville nightclub scene to the UK. City Cowgirl spoke to manager Susie McCarthy to find out how Londoners can party to hot new country music from across the pond...
The night starts off with a live set from an up and coming country artist, and then the resident DJ plays all the latest tracks from the US to keep you dancing til’ late!
Country Soul Sessions...
Sound of the underground in Soho
The most fun you’ll have on a Sunday night in London! The Country Soul Sessions are held once a month at The Spice of Life in Soho, hosting a range of different artists in the heart of London. Dancing not compulsory, but you might not be able to resist!
The evenings tend to focus on Americana, Rock N' Roll, Pop, Blues and Bluegrass, run by musicians in support of other musicians. In short, the organisers support the 'Underground' sound, as that is where it's always been at.
The Round Up...
An intimate writer's round in North London
The Round Up is a monthly Nashville-style writers round at The Colonel Fawcett, London. Hosted by alt-country duo Two Ways Home, the free event sees four acts perform their songs acoustically in front of an intimate crowd, often telling audiences about the inspiration and stories behind their lyrics.
Buck' N Bull Saloon...
Line dancing, music and BBQ!
A country bar in London? Impossible I hear you say! Well, watch out for the Buck' N Bull Saloon – they are hoping to provide a 7-days a week country bar for all of us country fans. At the moment, the event runs once a month in Angel, with line dance lessons, BBQ, live music and a modern-country disco.
Honky Tonk Thursdays...
Live music celebrating country's roots
Jambalaya Events celebrate traditional country music once a month with Honky Tonk Thursdays. Step back in time to the golden era of Country and Western music and get honky tonkin’ to the twang of telecasters, fiddles and pedal steel guitars.
The Jambalaya House Band kicks off the night with a set of the finest traditional honky tonk barroom tunes before a special guest headline takes to the floor.
Taking place (usually!) on Thursdays, the Jambalaya house band performs classic country covers of your favourite songs, followed by a guest act from the UK or abroad.
City Cowgirl spoke to organisers and musicians Joe Harvey-Whyte and Naomi Larsson about the night...
NOTE: The event has now moved to The Blues Kitchen, Camden.
