Our MONTHLY ACOUSTIC NIGHT at this delightful and atmospheric venue in the centre of Corby (it used to be the old library) has rapidly become Kontra Roots Club's "sister" event, presenting quality live music to enthusiastic listening audiences on EVERY 1st WEDNESDAY. Hosted by KEV BUXTON and featuring three top quality acoustic roots acts per month, plus floor spots from talented local musicians, ROOFTOP ACOUSTIC has built up a big following in a very short space of time and already has the reputation of being one of the best acoustic events in the area. Starting at 7.30, admission is free, and there is a bar with food available.
As well as the monthly acoustic night, the Rooftop also hosts occasional CONCERTS featuring the finest regional and national acoustic roots acts.

"Given that Cliff Ward and John Parker already have excellent reputations as founder members of two very successful bands (The Willows and Nizlopi respectively) I was expecting good things from the new partnership of these two fine musicians, but I must say I was completely blown away by their recent performance at my club, not only by their genre defying music - acoustic jazz-folk-pop doesn’t really do it justice - but by their sheer energy, verve and sense of fun. These guys are clearly having a ball playing together! Great songs, fab vocals, superb playing and musicianship, plus wonderful synergy, this is a partnership made in heaven. They really are fantastic and I can’t wait to see them again. If they come to your local club soon, be to sure to catch them - you won’t be disappointed!" Kontra Roots
