WE’RE GOING TO LEAVE THIS MESSAGE FROM THE OWNER OF BATSTONE’S NORTHERN RAMBLE UP FOR A WHILE SO LIVE MUSIC FANS ARE AWARE OF THE IMPACT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS HAVE HAD ON THE LIVE MUSIC COMMUNITY.
WE WILL REMOVE THIS LOCATION FROM THE DIRECTORY WHEN IT FEELS LIKE AN SUITABLE TIME IN THE FUTURE.
“In case the posts of the last few months, on here or in the now sporadic newsletter, haven’t been clear, Batstone’s Northern Ramble has closed it’s doors and been sold. The new owners do not plan on opening as a music venue, so this brilliant sounding room may never hold song again. That said, I will, of course, continue as a musician and promoter of all things live music and perhaps one day, if the right building presents itself, a new BNR will emerge from the ruins of this COVID-19 rubble. BNR is but one of many victims and I’m not one to wallow in it…it was a GREAT RUN and now onward. That said, I will be pulling this FB page soon and to that end, if any of you wish to keep a memory from the pics or video archives, I will leave this page active for a week or 2 more to allow any downloads. If you wish to stay in touch or follow my music, please join my Dean Batstone Music page for updates.”

Levon Helm (Drummer from The Band) adopted the name for his now legendary musical gatherings
at his home studio near Woodstock, NY. Inspired by the idea of great, live, original music presented
in an intimate setting (having attended many Midnight Rambles] Singer/Songwriter Dean Batstone
