13th February

Ben Maggs & Sam Eason

The St James Wine Vaults welcomes two great musicians.  Sam Eason returns; learning lessons from the masters like Dylan, Taylor and Jedward, Sam likes to keep his songwriting simple and to the point; If you’re looking for fractured rhythms and 15/4 time signatures, steer clear. If, however, your heart is in need of some buttering by a velvet spatula of melodies and tenderness, Sam may just be your man.  Headlining with Sam, we welcome Ben Maggs - the BBC writes “Ben is a truly gifted talent, with an incredible knack of wearing his heart on his sleeve when it comes to laying bare intense and powerful emotions through his magnificent song writing. Remember where you heard or saw him first – he will be a major player on the global music stage!”.  What an evening this will be!

Tickets: £5 OTD

Start Time: 8 pm

15th February

Improv Theatre Night

A class for all levels (most of us are beginners at the moment) consists of games and scenes all improvised by the people that come along. Sometimes it ends up a bit mad but sometimes you can be surprised by the theatre that comes out of nowhere. We start off every class with warm ups and progress depending upon how we all feel and mostly just have a laugh with a few drinks.  Plus it is a good way of meeting new people. It is completely FREE but everyone pays £1 for the use of the room.  No pressure to perform first time, you can just see what we are about and how the classes run.  If you would like more information, contact Monty on 07865 424682


Tickets: £1.00

Start Time: 7 pm

19th February

Marine + Guests

RMT Music Productions presents an evening of fine music with M A R I N E https://soundcloud.com/wearemarinemarine
"Its instantly apparent how beautiful a collaboration Marine are; dreamy, rich, robust vocals. An opulent array of mellow hums and delicate trills, conjuring the deep minimalism of XX's debut sound. It's the musical equivalent of a creamy post-coital blush. The band are fresh from a mini tour in Berlin, done on a shoestring they flew without a luggage allowance, stuffing knickers and handmade CD sleeves into guitar cases as they bundled
onto the plane. At the headline gig in Berlin, they sold out of their special edition EP." Katie Prior (Line of Best fit) .  Support from All that Glitters, Nobody and Ellie makes Music.

Tickets: £4.50 advance from www.bristolticketshop.co.uk

6th March


The St James Wine Vaults proudly hosts David Rovics. David grew up in a family of classical musicians in Wilton, Connecticut, and became a fan of populist regimes early on. By the early 90's he was a full-time busker in the Boston subways and by the mid-90's he was traveling the world as a professional flat-picking rabble-rouser. These days David lives in Portland, Oregon and tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He has shared the stage with a veritable who's who of the left in two dozen countries, and has had his music featured on Democracy Now!, BBC, Al-Jazeera and other networks. Most importantly, he's really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will make the revolution irresistible.

Lach in Bloom March UK Tour - Bath

Antifolk founder and star of BBC Radio 4's 'The Lach Chronicles!'  "Lach is the mastermind of Antifolk, like a Lower East Side rendezvous of Bob Dylan and Patti Smith. Like black snow, stalled subway cars and random violence, Lach is a Manhattan institution."-NY Times  "Lach is incredibly bright, influential, funny, and he’s got his own, sort of, counter-culture charm. He is part of New York folklore."-Suzanne Vega "The roots of modern songwriting: Dylan, Barrett, Drake and Lach!"- Timeout London.  "Lach is so what the East Village used to be all about. He's a gruff‑and-tough punk turned poet with a heart of gold."-Timeout New York.  "Lach is a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy!"-The Guardian UK. "The best punk rhythm guitarist since Johnny Ramone."-Billy Ficca of Television

Tickets: £3 on the door

Start Time: 8 pm

30th March


Matt Woosey returns to The St James Wine Vaults.  Matt’s time is now. His eighth studio album, Desiderata, captures the most daring and progressive music of his career. His acclaimed solo shows dart between folk, roots, ambient and electronica. He’s an artist who slips the creative straightjacket of the modern industry, a trailblazer with no reverse gear, a performer who drags the acoustic guitar kicking and screaming into fresh relevance. “You’ve got to keep progressing,” says the Malvern-based singer-songwriter. “Like John Martyn. Like Robert Plant. Like Radiohead…”Support from Sinnober
