Variety Cafe: West Magnolias

Variety Café is a series of free lunchtime concerts supported by Kingston University. The programme offers an exciting mixture of emerging artists and alumni of Kingston University's music department.

West Magnolias are an Americana style band formed of Postgraduate Music students studying at Kingston University. Merrellene Middleton, the lead vocalist, was born in Texas and remains rooted in the Country and Blues traditions of the music of the South that she grew up with. She mixes this with a pop sensibility gained from fifteen years of living and making music in London. Within the past five years Americana has seen a growth in popularity in the UK and West Magnolias have found a home for their sound. Peter O'Connor is on guitar, Adrian Evans is on keys and Rob Plummer is on drums to round out the band and provide a mix of traditional Americana covers as well as introducing some of the band's original material.
