?Dirty Field Whores were exactly Glastonwick ? spiky, political, funny and punk in the CLEVER sense of the term!? ? Attila the Stockbroker
?Beautiful, quirky and humorous lyrics about life?s little challenges in a must-see live show.? ? Andrew Marston, BBC Introducing
?The musical melange draws in left-bank swing, Balkan gypsy dreamscape, jazz waltz fusion and cowgirl reggae-hop all bound together with sentient political verse with a razor edge that feels no need to growl before it bites.? ? Graham, Macstock Organiser
?Gail?s voice is sweet and haunting, with a strange inflection that seems
to combine toughness and vulnerability in a way that?s hard to pin down,
the mood shifts constantly, ice and fire, rage and graveyard humour.? ? Mal Content
?MS must surely be the Sade or Billie Holiday of anarcho-folk, as she?s more soulful and bluesy than I?d yet realised. I?d heard her before on YouTube and in a drunken haze in Weston-Super-Mare but tonight it was early daze on the local real ale (delicious and full-bodied) so I could now contemplate the group with near clarity. Her top hit song Cameron I Would Call You A C*nt is supreme sugary aural sustenance.? ? Owen Adams ? writer/journalist
?Well constructed, played and concise and to the point. In short excellent. Good luck with this!?
? JC Carroll, The Members (on Cameron, I Would Call You a Cunt)
?Here?s what the nation will be singing when the Tory scum get what?s coming to them.?
? Ian Bone (on Cameron, I Would Call You a Cunt)
17 years of Musical Genius and the best Guinness in town.

Katie Fitzgeralds has built a reputation for live music and parties but it's about more than that its also about history and tradition.
Originally a private house the building is over 200 years old and has been a pub since the 1830 Beer Act.
In the 19th century it would have been home to foundry workers and boatmen and would have looked out across to the Stourbridge canal arm where Foster and Rastrick built the Stourbridge Lion the first steam locomotive to run on rails in the USA.
Originally known as the Golden Lion it later became known as the Stourbridge Lion and then in 2000 it
became our home and was renamed in honour of Trina's grandmother Katie Fitzgerald who was born in Cloyne County Cork.
Trina is related to Irelands most famous hurling player Christy Ring, a son of Cloyne and is also cousin of Donal ag Cusack , Irelands first openly gay sportsman.
