A special open mic edition of Nest’s popular acoustic night is taking place as part of this year’s Crosspool Festival.
It’s your chance to play a couple of songs, unplugged and with no microphone, to a friendly Crosspool Festival crowd – or just turn up and watch!
To finish the evening there will be a special set of folk and originals from acoustic night favourites The Finch Charmers.
