PicaPica features the vocal interplay of Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates, dual front women who create powerful harmonies atop layers of texture created by Adam Beattie & Sonny Johns, a tiding of magpies picking shiny moments of tone and timbre from 60s west coast, sunshine pop and indie folk.
Josienne and Samantha met on the London acoustic music scene several years ago and immediately shared a love of singing and writing. They have been unofficially collaborating for years, often singing backing vocals for each other’s projects or just singing harmonies together for the pure enjoyment of it.
Kitchen Garden Café is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Kings Heath’s busy shopping centre, combining a garden shop, café, deli and meeting room surrounding an old blue brick courtyard.
At the licensed Café you’ll find a variety of delicious and wholesome things to eat, all freshly made right here, including an A la Carte Menu on Thursday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. The vast majority of our food is organic and, wherever possible, fairly traded and supplied by local producers. We have a separate children’s menu and play area.
There’s also a Deli where you can purchase organic and locally sourced food to take home, including local and organic cheeses, organic wines, beers & spirits, plus jams and preserves made in our own kitchen. And, because we know you want to make good food at home too, we stock a range of groceries and fresh organic fruit and vegetables.
You can hire our meeting room or even the whole café for your meetings, celebrations and events. We can supply hot and cold buffets to suit a range of budgets.
We also host a number of regular and one-off events, including the Retort (an eclectic mix of music, comedy, poetry and alternative cabaret and the Storytelling Café (bringing storytelling back to adult audiences).
