17/4/2017 Country Joe Renegade @ The Lamb

I've never been to The Lamb on Holloway Road before, although I've heard some good things about it. It's got plenty of character and gives the impression that it probably has an interesting past. Real ale at reasonable prices is always a bonus! Some places appear larger on the inside than they look on the outside - this place seems the opposite. Weird. It's not that busy on a Monday night, but tucked away in the back part of the pub I find Country Joe Renegade playing a solo acoustic set. 

If he looks a bit like well known North London musician Dave Renegade that's because he's his cousin from Alabama. ;-) His badly behaved cousin. Not a million miles away from Howling Willie Cunt - but without all the swearing! Country Joe turns out a set of mostly original songs to a small but select crowd. His songs are interesting and heartfelt. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere and the staff at the pub seem friendly and genuinely enthusiastic about the place - I shall return in the future....
