Acoustic Routes


A series of small concerts in Cambridge, England, presenting the finest acoustic music

Gerry Colvin


After 15 years of sold out concerts there will be no more at CB2. It has been an amazing run of great gigs which has lasted far longer than any of us could have imagined when we started in 2001. A big thank you goes to everyone who played, everyone who bought tickets and all of the brilliant team.

Despite bringing a huge amount of business to CB2 over the years they have suddenly made demands of us that make the gigs no longer viable and after the extraordinary behaviour of the new manager towards me personally there is no chance that I will ever go back there. I recommend you don't either.

We are looking for another venue so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

You can also watch them on YouTube. We have now had nearly 400,000 views.
