Sam Twigg & the Sometimes Band on the Oxford Canal
15 May 2021 at 3 pm
Let us serenade you on the towpath from a wee floating stage on a beautifully restored canal boat. Part of Towpath Productions’ Moving Music series, bringing live music back to Oxford in covid-sensible ways.
The boat will launch on the Oxford Canal, near Makespace Oxford and north of Aristotle Lane/Bridge 240, at 3 pm. This is the bit of canal just east of Port Meadow. We will head towards town, ever so slowly, and pass through the Isis Lock (note this is NOWHERE NEAR the Isis pub). Then we will reverse and head back north.
Timings are approximate. There are no tickets or seating areas. Stay out of sneezing distance of those who are not in your bubble. Take a picnic, feed some ducklings, or just have a relaxing stroll.
Brickwork Lizards + Sam Twigg & the Sometimes Band
Originally planned for 20 Nov 2020, we have postponed this event until the covid coast is clear – or at least a bit clearer. We still look forward to a heart-warming, toe-tapping, singularly sumptuous evening featuring Brickwork Lizards, the cinematic Arabic jazz fusion ensemble, and Sam Twigg and the Sometimes Band, offering original songs of love, apocalypse, and wine-soaked compromise.
