Thursday May 11th 2017 - Special concert featuring Meghan Saletta

On Thursday May 11th we have the enormous pleasure of welcoming back our good friend Meghan Saletta who graced CB2 many times during her year in Cambridge, and her recent CD Dreaming features 8 songs inspired by her time here. Together they form a sonic memory, recounting the magic and uncertainty of a young adult finding herself in a foreign land. “These songs were written in the rolling green meadows and bright storybook-like gardens of Cambridge… some alone in my bedroom, and others in the upstairs function room at the pub where I worked,” Meghan explains. Meghan, originally from Chicago, is now living in California but is back for a few days and has kindly agreed to return once more to Cambridge Acoustic Nights. Visit her website at or have a listen to her beautifully moving song about her time in Cambridge, Foreign Land.

Meghan will be joined by her friend S J Mortimer, and support will come from John Meed and Dave Streatfield.

Tickets will be £5.

Doors will open at 7.30pm and the music starts at 8.00; tickets are £5. CB2 is in Norfolk Street, Cambridge CB1 2LD. Email us or phone Dave on 07734 504274 to reserve tickets.
