The shed is a former army billet based in the somerset countryside just off junction 20 of the M5, it contains a fascinating collection of curiosities and is the perfect location to take a break from the madness of touring, kick back for a while and watch some intimate lo-fi acoustic performances.
The collections in the shed were initially put together for meetings of a small group of friends with a love of Cheese and Cider during one of our regular meetings in The Royal Oak it was suggested we tried to get some musicians to play at the first meeting. The Cheese and Cider society was immeadiatly dropped and Songs From The Shed was born.
Since that decision the shed has seen many acts play and has featured in several national newspapers, on BBC Radio 1,2,3 and 5, as well as many local stations. We have been discused on blogs all over the world and have featured in a BBC documentary.
We are taking bookings up to a year ahead and have an eclectic, genre free, mix of acts planning to come play the shed. Some of these will be familiar names, some you will never of heard of but all will bring something special to the shed.
Keep checking back or subscribe (free) for updates of the latest sessions as we promise there will be much to enjoy.
