Milli and Jeremy Galgut feature night Wednesday 29 July 2015

Milli specialises in Scottish and Shetland fiddle and has played with Alamootie and the Marc Block Trio. Jeremy is a singer-songwriter who plays with Moose Malloy. Both have gigged around Nottingham and the East Midlands for many years and are regulars at Carrington.

They will sing an eclectic mix of their self-penned songs plus some traditional songs and tunes on guitar and fiddle. When they play together Jeremy accompanies Milli on some of her tunes and she returns the favour on some of his.

John Conolly Wednesday 15 July 2015

Our guest this Wednesday 15 July is John Conolly who so enjoyed his gig with us 3 years ago that he wanted Carrington as the closing date on his countrywide 15 day tour.

John is best known for composing ‘Fiddlers Green’ when barely out of college, but in the last 45 years he has written dozens of songs, many humorous, although no others have been mistakenly called traditional. He accompanies himself on guitar or his trusty melodeon and is sure to give us a great night. Members can come in for £3, whilst entry for anyone else is £5, and we aim to start at 8.30pm so we can finish by 11.15 as requested by our landlord, and clear the room by 11.25pm.

We remain open every Wednesday over the summer then our guests for the next 3 months are: –

16 September – BOB FOX singer from Co Durham who’s just finished as Songman in ‘War Horse’.

30 September – JONATHAN JONES – home grown interpreter of James Taylor and Mark Knofler.

21 October – DOUG EUNSON & SARAH MATTHEWS – ex Cross o’the Hands and most of Cupola.

Hope to see you this Wednesday 15 July at 8.30pm.
