Saturday 7 December 8pm at Lincoln Drill Hall Music in the Bar The Butler Family supported by The Shambolics Join us for a second night of live music in the café, this time with The Butler Family, a 5-piece Americana band inspired by the roots of country music and some of its more modern interpretations. All five members of the band sing harmonies to give a rich tapestry of voices over the guitars, bass, drums, banjos, mandolins and steel guitar. The band’s support of King King at the Drill Hall in 2012 won many new fans. If you enjoy your country music rootsy with great guts and soul, you will not want to miss this band. The Butler Family will be supported by Lincoln favourite The Shambolics who play songs of ecstasy & despair inspired by a very wide range of influences. They have famously been described as ‘punk for the waitrose generation’! Tickets: £6
