In October Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer played live for our online 'meeting' - it was lovely to hear them, and the nyckelharpa again!
Just before lockdown Alden Patterson & Dashwood gave us a splendid afternoon in the Shaftesbury Hall.
Looking further back ...
Pete Morton, our favourite troubadour has given us several rousing evenings.
Steve Turner, a genial guest performer, gave us brilliant songs with a focus on the sea, accompanied on the guitar, concertina and ukelele.
The Cruel Mothers,Carol Burtt and Sarah Jones, performed a great evening of songs from the darker side of the folk tradition. Theirstunning harmonies and sensitive guitar accompaniment (and the fact that they are perfectly nice people!) softened this plunge into themes of betrayal, death and madness.
To kick off 2018, Tom Lewis gave us a splendid evening of songs and stories of the sea old and new, accompanying himself on button accordion and ukulele.
The Goat Roper Rodeo Band gave us an enormously energetic evening - "wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies". Their fame is spreading, but you saw them here first!
This group does not have any discussions yet.
