The gigs take place at London pub venue The Lexington. December 5 features Turin Brakes, Teddy Thompson and an acoustic piano/set by Alison Moyet. The day after stars Lewis Watson, Jon McClure of Reverend And The Makers and The Subways’ Billy Lunn. December 7 has Billy Bragg, Itch from The King Blues and Hayseed Dixies’ John Wheeler.
