Live gigs and online music





PRE-2021

Until the Covid lockdown I'd been running ‘Acoustic Mondays’, at the Windmill Inn in Wymeswold, Leicestershire, and also playing regularly at open mics, acoustic evenings and folk clubs around Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, both as a solo artist and with folk/acoustic bands. Since then I've kept the music going in various places online. These include Facebook pages where I've been posting videos regularly, such as "The Naughty Chair", "Folk in Quorn" and "Black Horse Fridays"; and also "live" digital acoustic sessions "Backporch Music" and "Juke Joint Jammers" and the informal songwriting group "Songwriters' Tuesdays". I've been trying to develop a bit of an online presence at:

and

In addition, I've started collaborating with a group of Leicestershire songwriters - Chris Chambers, Phil Riley, Dave Taylor and Kenny Wilson - in an exciting new venture which goes under the name of Reynard Collective. There are links to some of the Reynard tracks on the "Music" page below.


UPCOMING GIGS 2021

Well, we're keeping our fingers crossed, and hoping for things to get better, and at the moment a few gigs are beginning to emerge as possibilities for summer and autumn 2021. Here's some places I may be playing if all goes well.

Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th June 2021, The Gathering, Preston-On-Wye, Herefordshire (a limited invitation event)


Wednesday 30th June 2021, The Musician, Leicester - playing support at the launch event for Autumn Dawn Leader's new album. 8.00 p.m.


Sunday 3rd October 2021, The Musician, Leicester - Reynard Collective gig.


So, things are beginning to happen again - but as you see, there's plenty of space in the diary at the moment. So if you fancy booking me for a gig, do get in touch at m.d.w.mangan@gmail.com
