STANLEY ACCRINGTON

relevant  -  entertaining  -  silly!

From old-style songs on current happenings to modern-style songs on ancient events. Poems, pastiches, parodies and possibly anything.
Apart from the silly and very silly material, listen out for serious songs to confuse the situation further. Stanley tries to be always both relevant and entertaining - and succeeds!

Floor singers welcome - email bowesparkfolk@gmail.com to book a spot.

Thursday 7 January 8-10pm    local talent and -

PETE MORTON

A Golden Thread - album launch

Pete brings us songs from his latest album, looking far onto the horizon with global themes of human migration, the arms trade, climate change, and universal basic income, then homing in for classics like Farmer's Boy and Barb'ry Allen.

Floor singers welcome - email bowesparkfolk@gmail.com to book a spot.

One day we’ll be back at Mum’s ! ********************************************************************************

LOOKING BACK

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 ...

Granny's Attic entertained us with varied, spirited, brilliantly performed songs old and new.

 

Pete Morton, our favourite troubadour has given us several rousing evenings.

Oka Vanga, a duo from Hertford, gave us a lovely summer evening.

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!
