The Processed Pea…
…means many things to different people:
To professional musicians it is a much respected venue to perform at.
To amateur performers it is a place to be able to play in front of a live audience.
To those in the audience it means quite simply – a good night out!

Monday 5th August 8pm
Jinski are Steve Wegrzynski and Dave Kennedy, two highly individual guitarists/musicians with strong distinctive voices. They have a wealth of great original songs that draw upon acoustic roots and the singer songwriter tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern.
Jinski play songs that tell stories of love, joy, loneliness and longing, capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life. Their ‘live’ work is a kaleidoscope of musical and lyrical imagery.
Monday 7th October 8pm
Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby
Cathryn Craig is from Richmond, Virginia and has built a strong reputation as both singer and songwriter. She is no stranger to Tennessee’s Nashville recording studios, working with Chet Atkins, The Righteous Brothers, Shel Silverstein and Jorma Kaukonen.
Brian Willoughby is best known for his virtuoso performances on electric and acoustic guitar, with progressive folk/rock band Strawbs. He has also played with Mary Hopkin, Joe Brown, New World, Roger Whittaker, Bridget St.John, Jim Diamond and Monty Python.
Both Cathryn and Brian have accompanied Nanci Griffith.
Their “Alice’s Song” was an Aled Jones “highlight of the year” on BBC Radio 2.
Monday 4th November 8pm
Flossie’s repertoire is very open as she likes all sorts of different music genres. Her songs include famous numbers, including Allan Taylor’s “Roll on the day”, Kieran Halpin’s “Making up the miles”, Colum Sands’ “The child who asks why”, Starrett and Laird’s ” John Condon” but also Edith Piaf’s eternal favourites “No regrets”, “La vie en rose”… or Jacques Brel’s “Amsterdam” and “Ne me quitte pas”…
She also loves songs full of energy or, as she calls them herself, full of “vavavoum” such as Bonnie Raitt’s “Road’s my middle name”, Kris Kristofferson’s “Bobby McGee” (Janis Joplin way)… There’s also space for lovely ballads such as “Georgia on my mind” or Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the night” as well as jazzy tunes like “Let’s fall in love”, “Misty” or “Fly me to the moon”.
So even if you have never seen or heard her before, surely there will be something in her repertoire to suit your taste! Flossie is making new friends wherever she sings and is looking forward to seeing you at The Processed Pea.
Monday 1st December 8pm
