We’ll also have one of the top keyboard players in the UK, Dino Baptiste, whose style of blues, boogie woogie and rock n’ roll piano playing and dynamic vocals will get everyone on their feet.”Other acts appearing at The Old Mill include singer songwriter George Powell who does covers from Paolo Nutini, James Bay and The Rolling Stones as well as his own original songs.Andy Soper and Clint Henderson, an acoustic duo from Hertfordshire, will also bring their own distinctive style of guitar, vocals and percussion to the pub.Mr Simmons said: “The live sessions are going to bring some cool sounds and a relaxed but exciting atmosphere to the pub, and the really great news is that they’re totally free to attend. Add in some top notch food, like sharing deli boards and our new bar snacks, and a few drinks and you’ve got all the elements of a really great night out.”The Measures will perform from 8pm on Friday (March 17) for St Patrick’s Day.To see the full line up of live music sessions with dates, times and artists go to www.theoldmillberkhamsted.cco.uk/eventsIf you want to book a table for supper on the night that can also be done online at the address above.
