Zen Elephant are a Bristol-based four-piece band who are establishing a growing reputation, just five years after forming.

The internationally-acclaimed outfit effortlessly blend genres – including folk, roots and gypsy jazz – into a collection of charming songs and lively performances.

They are in the midst of a big year, with extensive European tour slots and UK festival slots on their calendar.

However, they will also be appearing at Loves Café in West Street tomorrow.

n The following night, Cirencester-based folk duo Sian Chandler and Ray Hughes will be playing the same venue.

This will be their first gig in Weston, and will give music fans a first glimpse of their highly-rated original material.

Doors open at 7pm on both nights, music begins at 9pm, and entry is free.
