COTTAGE CONCERTS, OLD VILLAGE

Started in spring 2014, Cottage Concerts began life as quarterly house concerts held at the delightful country cottage of Kev Buxton’s partner, Sandy Huddart, in the  award winning village of Old near Northampton. In spring 2016, for personal and practical reasons, we relocated to the nearby Old Community Centre (equally as homely but with a bit more space) where they continue to go from strength to strength. The concerts feature a mix of Kontra favourites along with some superb acts (including the occasional legend!) who we haven’t been able to book at other Kontra events. They have proved to be something very special indeed and become enormously popular with every show a sell out.

UPCOMING CONCERTS


SATURDAY 9 SEPTEMBER

GEORGE BREAKFAST £12

An internationally acclaimed, award winning folk roots songwriter, whose songs have been covered by many performers, George is also a troubador who has travelled the world for 40 years, playing pubs, clubs, festivals and concert halls, radio, TV, and street corners. A complete original, he is a songwriter of brilliance with “a voice that layers soul onto tunes like honey dripping off a biscuit.” His enormous repertoire, dexterity on guitar and mandolin, and engaging style are a winning combination, delighting people wherever he plays.  www.georgebreakfast.com

Due to their intimate nature, and because house concerts are essentially private parties,  Cottage Concerts are by invitation only. However, if you’re interested in coming along, just let us know, and if there are places left we will be more thsn happy to invite you.



Donations for a typical Cottage Concert are £12-£14 (payable in advance) and include a full home cooked meal. The atmosphere is friendly and informal, the seating comfortable, and the country setting absolutely idyllic. Old Village is approximately 15 minutes drive from both Kettering and Northampton. Our doors are open from 7pm for food and the concerts start around 8pm. There are two 45 minute sets approximately, with a sweet course available in the interval. People are welcome to bring their own alcohol, but soft drinks will be provided.
