The concerts are held in the air-conditioned basement underneath the
restaurant. We recommend booking a table for a meal in the restaurant
before the concert. You should allow at least an hour and a half for
the meal to leave enough time to get down to the cellar for the start
of the concert at 8.30pm. To book a table tel. 01223 508503.

Acoustic Routes concerts are now on a Summer break. We are back on Sept
12 with a double bill of Thea Hopkins on tour from the USA plus one of
our favourite singer/songwriters Liz Simcock.
On Saturday 5 Sept it's an Open Stage featuring Crooked Tree. Admission is £3 and tickets will be available on the door.
MORE LEG ROOM!
Everyone who has ever been to an Acoustic Routes concert
will know that it can be a bit of a tight squeeze to fit everyone in.
We've always called it "intimate"! Over the last few months leg room
has become more of a problem with the new larger chairs that CB2 have
provided. So we have decided to take out an entire row of chairs. This
means an increased level of comfort but the same great music and no
increase in the ticket price.
LIZ SIMCOCK + THEA HOPKINS
We now run open stage nights with Cambridge

Acoustic Routes was started by singer/songwriter Bernard Hoskin
in 2001 to present the finest acoustic music in a small concert
setting.The concerts take place in the intimate basement at CB2
restaurant near the centre of Cambridge and present some of the finest
national and international performers around. The music covered
includes singer/songwriters, acoustic guitarists, traditional folk,
blues, and Americana.
It has established a reputation as
one of the finest small venues in the country and has
featured performers such as Gordon Giltrap, Nizlopi, Martyn
Joseph, Boo Hewerdine, Chris Difford, Christine Collister,
Benny Gallagher, Clive Gregson, Phil Beer, Clive Carroll and
many more, plus surprise guest appearances by Hank Marvin
and Seth Lakeman.
Helping with the running of the
concerts are Clare Freeman, Peter Foster, Bron Ormsby and Dave Streatfield.
