It is with a good deal of sadness that after 15 years of the best in acoustic music on both sides of the Atlantic that Acoustic Routes closed it doors at CB2 for the last time on December 3rd. We all thank Bernard Hoskin for his tireless efforts in bringing fabulous music to Cambridge. Bernard hopes to see Acoustic Routes revived soon so keep your eye on the webpage.
