We’ve been big fans of those kooky live music sessions here at 247 Magazine for a while now. From the Black Cab Sessions to the Tiny Desk Concerts and Bands in Transit Sessions to the Station Sessions but none more so than the Westcountry version or Songs from the Shed. If you like indie acoustic, folk or Americana music then you need to check these out.

Set in a shed (no shit) on a farm somewhere off the M5 just south of Bristol, the sessions have attracted the likes of Roddy Woomble, Micah P Hinson, Ellen and the Escapades, Steven Knightly (Show of Hands) and most recently Dorset singer/songwriter Jinder (see below). The shed, a former army billet, is full of trinkets and stuff and attracts touring musicians on their way from gigs in the South West up country. Acts can apply to play there too. But there’s more! The shed tours and will also feature at Frome Folk Festival next month and Bristol Folk Festival in May.
