Peaun @ Ton Igern

Peaun has recently moved back to Korat after playing for over 10 years in hotels and bars in Hua Hin. While there she entertained both tourists and locals with her mix of quality English language and Thai songs. She plays all over Korat but if you want to catch her on a Wednesday (8:30pm till 10:00pm) or a Friday (8:00pm till 9:30pm) then get yourself down to Ton Igern.

Ton Igern is one of the best kept secrets in Korat. It is a smallish semi open air venue, it's actually all open air but their are various roofs covering the different areas so don't worry, you won't get wet. It is situated just down from the Punjadara Hotel, across the railway tracks and on the corner on the left. 

It offers three acoustic acts every evening apart from on Monday when it's closed. The first of these varies, and is usually followed by the bar's owner Oh from 9:00pm till 10:00pm and finally Nueng from 10:00pm till midnight.

Due to her time in Hua Hin Peaun plays a massive selection of both Farang and Thai songs, including oldies, classics and more modern material. Her personal favourites include a number of songs by Adele, Creedance Clearwater Revival, What's Up by the 4 Non-Blondes and an excellent version of If I stay just a little bit longer by Rod Stewart. Her rockier side includes classics like Highway to Hell by AC/DC and Sweet child o' mine by Guns n' Roses. Thai favourites include a number of songs by Da Endorphine, Boy Gosiapong, and Paper Jam. 

She is an excellent singer and an accomplished guitarist. One of my favourite things about her set is that apart from a few obvious tracks she plays a lot of quality songs that you won't hear in most venues in Korat, so if you feel like enjoying some quality acoustic music then Ton Igern is well worth a visit on any night but especially when Peaun is playing.

Ton Igern is situated across the railway track from The Punjadara Hotel.
