SC4M Festival 2016

Sun 11/09/16 12:00 PM - 11:00 PM

The line-up has been announced for this year’s SC4M Festival, held over two rooms at
the Railway Inn in Winchester. This is the seventh year of the festival, which is entirely
non-profit making and is dedicated simply to great music for real music lovers.
Featuring an Acoustic Room (The Attic) and an Electric Room (The Barn), as well as
great food and ales, SC4M is the only festival that guarantees NO MUD, as it is held
entirely indoors!
The festival will take place on September 11 from 12 midday until 11pm. Tickets are
available from the Railway website www.railwayinn.pub and from Hundred Records in
Romsey.
Headlining in The Barn is JOHN MURRY, who is Mississippi born but now a resident of
Ireland, living in Kilkenny. John’s new album, the follow-up to the hugely acclaimed The
Graceless Age, is now complete, produced by and featuring Toronto’s Cowboy
Junkies. John is a strange and magnetic live performer, a big favourite in Winchester
who performed at the festival in 2013. This will be a duo show with Clive Barnes, which
has been slaying audiences in Ireland.
Headlining in The Attic is one of the greatest success stories to come out of Winchester
in recent years. THIS IS THE KIT features Kate Stables, whose album Bashed Out has
been a hit all over the world. This band always sells out the Railway on its own, so it’s
an honour and privilege to have them performing at SC4M. *appearing at Glastonbury
