Autumn approaches - but the good news is: Pete Morton at the Organ Grinder, Loughborough, November 22nd, 2013...
By the time autumn has come down on us, no doubt spirits will need lifting. Here's the perfect hit to achieve such transcendence: Pete Morton, live at the Organ Grinder, Loughborough, with support from songwriter Tom Patterson and his long term sidekick Dave Morton (guitar, juggling etc). A certain amount of nostalgia involved as well: the OG was formerly known as the Pack Horse and housed a folk club where Pete played regular gigs for many years so a return to an old haunt that has been successfully relaunched after falling on hard times.

Come early - Pete always attracts a crowd... a mere £9...

Unfortunately the pub deteriorated badly, locked in a downward spiral until it finally collapsed and died. Enter Blue Monkey Brewery in 2012 who did a superb job on renovating this venerable old boozer and taking it back to - and beyond even - its former glories under a new name: The Organ Grinder. Please note: a folk club started up again recently for informal sessions once a month, second Friday. Pete's gig, however, is under the Tapped But Settling banner of Mr Frank Marmion as a concert booking with support tba....
