With many bands performing their own music in Guernsey finding venues to play can sometimes be a struggle. While The Fermain Tavern remains the island’s only dedicated venue for original live music from time to time some of the islands pubs step away from the cover bands and allow originals to blast from their make shift stages.
On the weekend of 31st July and 1st August 2015 I headed to a couple of these venues, The White Hart and The Jamaica Inn, to check out four bands.
First on the Friday were indie-pop newcomers Kings and alt-rock monsters To The Woods and on Saturday I caught pop-rockers Stalk The Lantern and garage rockers Thee Jenerators.
My review of the shows was published in The Guernsey Press on Saturday 8th August and you can see my photos from the two shows here and here on the BBC Introducing Guernsey Facebook page.
