About the Event

Celebrate St Patrick's Day with us at The Post Bar. We are super excited to bring you James Riley who kept so many Tottenham Residents entertained with the fantastic #rooftopsessions .

While most touring musicians suffered from enforced inactivity during lockdown, James Riley took the ‘let’s put on a show’ impulse to new heights – quite literally! He climbed on to his garage roof to play music for his neighbours, and in the process helped raise over £40,000 for food banks in collaboration with #LIVEFORLOVE. Musiccloseup.com

Born of a transatlantic relationship, James Riley grew up in South East London listening to the folk and soul sound of 70s America. His guitar became the tool for surviving the tumult of a nowhere place, and helped James find somewhere he felt he belonged. In his early twenties, he took off hitchhiking and busking through Europe from Amsterdam to Istanbul, writing songs along the way. Back in the UK, these songs became a band- the songs progressed and James moved on once agin to Nashville, Tennessee. Here he found his producer and they set about making the album which had travelled with him to his maternal homeland, where it could finally get free.

“Awesome… like the Allman Brothers meets the Seeger Sessions” Laura Marling

“One of my highlights of the year“ Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3

“It hooked us on first listen…from the harmonies to the guitar work there’s nothing to not like” Folk Radio UK

James will be joining us for Paddy's day where we will be serving our Argentine BBQ with an Irish twist.

Plus there will be deals on Guinness & Jamesons all night!
