We had a nice night at Dave’s last week, I’m hosting next week.

You might want to check out Kingfisher FM – local radio which now has a Sunday Folk Program. I’ll put a proper article here about that soon.

4th June, Gigspanner are at Huntingdon Hall, Box Office 01905 611427 – they’re a trio, including Peter Knight (the fiddle player from Steeleye Span). Again, I’ll add more details in the not too dim and distant.

5the June is the Green fair in Redditch – World Environment Day – from 10.30am – 3pm. The fair will be held in and around St Stephens Church in the heart of the town centre. There will be many stalls offering green products, fairtrade goods, organic produce, natural gifts and lots of info to help you lead a more sustainable, eco-friendly life. Also kids fun activities, talks, entertainment, alternative therapists, free vegan food samples and lots more…! Admission to the fair is free.

Dave Gibb

We had an excellent night with Dave Gibb up at the Memorial Hall. A nice mix of new songs he’s written, some old favourites (Avalon being one of mine) a lot of humour and some sparkling guitar playing. For those who are not already Gibb-devotees I should mention his gorgeous arrangement of Burns’ ‘Green Grow the Rushes Oh’ and a breathtaking version of ‘Lady Eleanor’. Dave is an excellent songwriter, but he offers other matierial as well.

 Thanks to everyone who supported the gig. And thanks to Dave for a most excellent evening.

 I’m in the process of sorting out a few private events for the summer, and actually pinning down bookings for the autumn, so the current void that is the ‘coming soon’ page will be fixed in the not too dim and distant.

We had some chaos due to my being in America slightly longer than intended – and I missed the event at Forge Mill, although I did get to the St George’s day fete at St Georges.

Folk club this week is not quite happening – two of our core members, Jonathan and Belinda, are getting handfasted, most of the other core members are caught up in this, and the celebrating thereof, so to those of you who aren’t, sincere appologies but we’ll be back to normal next week. I believe we’re going to Chris and Hajni’s.

The next guest night will be the 15th May when we have Dave Gibb (Not a former BeeGee, nor any relation, so far as I know!).
