Come be a part of Oxford’s most talked about night of musical mayhem. We’re honoured to welcome the “English Willie Nelson” Ags Connolly – one of our favourite artists of recent years. Plus BBC Introducing faves The Autumn Saints whose music has its roots planted firmly in the American South bringing the soulful, weighty music history of North Carolina to the City of Dreaming Spires. A night set to send shivers down your spine and fireworks up your cracks and hosted once again by the beautiful crew at The Isis Farmhouse. Kicking off from 6pm expect fiddling landladies and a night like The Last Waltz and Rock and Roll Circus on acid. Kids welcome and free entry. Not to be missed Deadbeats

The Day of the Deadbeats

The first Day of the Deadbeats went off with a bang! Amazing night was had by all – thanks y’all for coming and bringing your A game. Joined by the beautiful blues of The Ragged Charms, guitarist Johnny Crees and Landlady Noreen on fiddle. Friends, family, fun and free music. Watch this space for the 2nd instalment and more brilliant Oxford music in one of Oxfords most fantastic settings.

Tap Social – Friday 22nd September!

Friday September 22nd The Deadbeats will be cruising on over to Oxford’s most talked about venue Tap Social. Craft brewery, community space, social justice and criminally good beer. The venue has hosted some fantastic bands recently and everyone is talking about this new cool space and their amazing booze. They open on Sept 22nd at 4pm and we will be on around 8pm for a couple of hours. It’s gonna be one hell of a night. The team there are an amazing bunch and you really should pull your finger out and do one down there.

Tap Social Movement was founded in 2016 by Paul, Amy and Tess. Having experience in a range of positions across the criminal justice system, we have all witnessed the difficulty people face when trying to turn their lives around after coming into contact with the law. There is a lack of support and assistance available to navigate complicated career pathways, and criminal records often dissuade employers from hiring otherwise eligible candidates. Many of the people we have worked with, especially those who have spent time in prison, struggle to access education, training and employment, hindering their rehabilitation, and drawing them back into a life of crime. But having worked closely with many people who have been through the system we know that there is so much talent and potential that is going to waste. Tap Social Movement was founded in an attempt to stop this vicious cycle by providing opportunities which set people up for long-term fulfilling employment.

See y’all there!
