We're pleased to announce JC and Angelina Grimshaw will be performing at the Brewery Tap on Friday 1st April at 7.30pm.
Based in the Isle of Wight, they are making the trip to Tongham as we think their sound of acoustic blues with jazz roots, with guitars, mandolin slide, ukulele and harmonica will be perfect for the Hangar. But don't take our word for it........
