The smaller stage inside The Cavern is perhaps one that does not get the big audiences, however in amongst the memorabilia and the scrawled on graffiti, the pictures of the greats and the memorable, there is always a very loyal crowd hovering in the tight fitting space and the haunting memories of the underground venue that established British popular music as the envy of the world.

Cut through the noise, reduce everything around you to a state of near silence, not so much pin dropping but that rare beat in which nobody breathes, nobody exhales or makes the slightest murmur at the exact same time, hack away at everything that detracts the senses and leave the bloodied corpses of indifference laying in their own pool of unreasonable understanding; for when Alison Green travels to the International Pop Overthrow, the event is one to savour for all its worth.

Almost a year has passed since Canterbury’s Alison Green sat down inside The Cavern as part of the Independent Pop Overthrow and gave what turned out to be a smashing debut performance in Liverpool. A year on and that taste of what resides in the heart of a woman with poetry in her veins and with an inquisitive mind in search of a great lyric to marry off to a prospective, potential chord has become something in which the Canterbury set of old would have been enthusing over and the legend of Whiskey Ginger Johnson would already be known far and wide.

It is never about the production but the passion and depth of strength and fortitude behind it that makes it a piece of art of repute. The intensity that is placed into delivering what is effectively your soul in the open air, to bring the birth of your voice in the natural arena of scrutiny and possible derision, that is what makes the process all the more worthwhile.

Geoffrey Chaucer neglected to tell one story when penning the grand uncle of English Literature classics, the Tale of Alison Green.

Much debt is owed to The Canterbury Set of musicians who made their mark on certain specific genres over the years, the history of the Kent City, nestling deep as the spiritual home of the country and offering a path to pilgrims over the century and as place which once visited should never be forgotten. Now add all these reasons together and intensify them with a young musician by the name of Alison Green and you have all the ingredients of powerful sonnet or lengthy adoring poem in which the writer would have been proud to have placed somewhere between The Wife of Bath’s Tale and the upstanding Knights Tale.
