Country band Royal South returns to Chapel Sessions Netley 27th September

Chapel Sessions Music welcomes back Royal South! Friday 27th September St Edward’s Church Netley Southampton

Individual artists in their own right, SaraBeth, Glen Mitchell, and Vickie Vaughn have come together to form the harmony powerhouse Royal South.  Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the Texas, London, and Kentucky natives have attracted the attention of renowned producer, Paul Worley, who produced the Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, and Martina McBride to name a few.  

With top notch production, their debut project is due to be released first quarter for 2019.

“The songs on this project are really strong,” exclaimed SaraBeth. “We spent months listening to song pitches. Walker Hayes co-wrote Feet and Everything I Touch Turns Blue. The late Andrew Dorff is a writer on our debut single, Cry, Cry. Rae Lynn co-wrote another. It’s been a year since new music has been released, and we’re super excited about the fans getting to hear this music.” 

Royal South’s patience and dedication has certainly paid off, and the release of their debut single Cry, Cry is bound to secure them a very exciting future.                          

Watch a live video of the Trio performing “CRY CRY”

Doors open 7pm, band on stage 7.30pm, Real Ale/Wine bar & Tea/Coffee available from 6.30pm in Church Hall.

Free Parking at the Church and Hall.

Claude Bourbon Medieval & Spanish blues 13th September St Edward’s Church Netley Southampton

Claude Bourbon returns to Chapel Sessions with his own unique blend of Medieval and Spanish Blues Guitar.  Singer/songwriter Claude extensively tours in Europe and USA so we are really pleased that he could fit in Chapel Sessions this year.

It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude’s playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic’s to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings. 

This quote probably sums him up as well as any :-

“Claude weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.”

Now based in the UK, some of Swiss French singer songwriter Claude’s influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician; Paco De Lucia: Deep Purple’s Richie Blackmore; Joaquin Rodrigo; JJ Cale; JS Bach….

***We are delighted to announce that support for Claude will be Steve Osman guitarist extraordinare. You will be amazed! Tell your friends about this spectacular evening of guitar and give these hardworking artists the support they deserve.

Doors open 7pm, on stage 7.30pm, Real Ale/Wine bar & Tea/Coffee available from 6.30pm in Church Hall.

Free Parking at the Church and Hall.

Nell Bryden plays Chapel Sessions Netley Sunday 7th July

Chapel Sessions welcomes back singer, songwriter and soon to be novelist Nell Bryden

A very special artist to us as she launched the Sessions on it’s journey to discover and share great live music, with our very first concert back in 2013.  This will be the 3rd time Nell has played for us and we can’t wait to host her again.

With this tour, Nell has gone back to her roots and followed the traditional sonic footsteps of her idols Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin and Carole King. Having just recorded an album (to tape!) – of all new songs at Ray Davies Konk Studios in London, Nell’s new EP is called “Soundtrack to Little Wing – Part 1,” which is a reference to Nell’s soon to be released debut novel, for which this music is a companion album. In her return to Chapel Sessions you can expect a soulful, heartfelt performance from New Yorker Nell and her band – an artist who is at her most comfortable on the road.

Venue doors open 7.00pm, auditorium doors open 7.30pm artists on stage 8pm bar area available from the venue 7pm and at interval (where appropriate).


Andrea Valeri plays Chapel Sessions Saturday 15th June

Chapel Sessions Music presents Andrea Valeri

We are delighted to welcome back to the UK, the world renowned Italian guitarist Andrea Valeri

“A Guitar Genius, one of the best Guitar players in the world”  – John Doan

“He’s Like a brother to me, One of the best Guitarists around” –  Francois Sciortino

“The shining light of the guitar world” – Michael Fix

“His potential is one of the world’s Best” – Eric Spitzer-Marlyn

“I met him in a Festival in Italy, And I was completely blown away by this new fingerpicking sensation” -Thomas Leeb

These are just some of the accolades his fellow guitarists from around the world have bestowed on Andrea.

Andrea Valeri was born in Pontedera February 27, 1991: from Australia to New Zealand, from Russia to Canada, from Europe to the African continent, Andrea continues to reap a worldwide success since the age of 16 years.
Defined as the “Prince of the Acoustic guitar”, and a new ambassador of acoustic music, Andrea, despite his young age is now a veteran of many of the biggest stages around the globe.

He has never been more in demand, and this year he includes 7 dates in Japan so we are honoured that he has once again committed to his loyal English fans to perform at Chapel Sessions.  

In addition to his busy solo touring schedule he has also recently embarked on a very exciting new project where he has teamed up with some of Europe’s and The World’s best musicians, bringing his music to a star studded Eurochestra to give birth to a truly unique Musical Experience!  Andrea will be able to explain in person where this project is going next?!  

Guitarists who have inspired Andrea define him as a “Star of the guitar world.”

Check out Andrea’s music on his website or visit some of his many youtube videos

Doors open 7pm,  concert starts 7.30pm, Real Ale/Wine bar & Tea/Coffee available from 6.30pm in Church Hall.
