Our next guests GREG RUSSELL and CIARON ALGAR appear on Wednesday 18 June from 8.30pm. They come from Cheshire and North Staffordshire and have been a duo since 2011. After a great performance last year (YouTube), they were asked to return to Southwell Folk Festival this year although other festival bookings meant they only appeared on Friday.
Greg is main vocalist and plays guitar or concertina whilst Ciaran plays fiddle and both play bouzouki. They won the Heritage prize at 2014 BBC Folk Awards following their Young Folk award in 2013 and have had great reviews for their live performances.
It will be only £4 for members and £6 for anyone else and we will ensure the guests come on by 9.15 and are able to play two 40 minute sets.
Do renew membership if yours has expired, as £9 on the night will result in free entry to singers/musicians nights and discounts of at least £2 on guest nights until 18 June 2015.
This Wednesday 11 June we hope to approve the committee members to enable the Club to go from strength to strength as Gren begins to wind down his responsibilities after 32 years.
Our guests for the next few months are:
Wednesday 16 July WINTER WILSON – popular song writers from Lincolnshire.
Wednesday 17 September LES BARKER – most prolific humorous versifier in Britain.
Wednesday 15 October NA MARA – dynamic duo return with Rob’s Basque influences.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 18 June for Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar.
Martin and Marion
