3PM Gigs

Forthcoming and recent performances.

Some of our gigs are not public events, so just because there’s nothing listed, doesn’t mean we’re not up to something, somewhere.

FWO21 is going ahead on April 16th-18th, despite the pandemic. As in 2020, the festival will be live on-line, only this year they’ve had rather more time to plan. Catch us at 10am on Sunday Morning. (read more…)

Three Pressed Men was formed in 1995. Our first gig was on Fri 4th August at The Coach & Horses, East Challow (now sadly closed). We’ve played a few gigs every year since then¬† – until 2020! The difficulties and restrictions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic put paid to everything we had in our diary. However, we couldn’t let this milestone pass unmarked. (read more…)

Ah, the joys of an English seaside town out of season. No tourists to spoil the beaches and jam up the roads. The best time of year to visit. Once again we are the guests of the Bournemouth Bach Choir. (read more…)

Cholsey Concerts are heartily disappointed to tell you that John Kirkpatrick is unwell and cannot appear on Saturday 26th Oct.

However, the organisers will press ahead with the concert. Three Pressed Men will perform 2 sets, and various other
musicians will be present, so we’ll treat it like a folk club.

We’re delighted to be invited back for another appearance at St Mary’s monthly¬† “Afternoon Tea Recitals”. As the name suggests, tea is served afterwards. There’s only a limited number of seats in the side-chapel, but we found last time that you’ll hear perfectly well from the nave, even if you can’t see everything. (read more…)
