Brian is a 60-something with a 40-something attitude. Having performed for many years both solo and with numerous others in numerous combinations, his artistry is something to behold.
A regular performer on the folk music scene in the Midlands and the West Country, he gives all he has, whether it be a floor spot at a club night, or as the principal artist on the main stage at a festival.
He has a unique aptitude for knowing what the audience wants; be it playing of instrumentals such as ‘Angie’ or by singing gentle ballads and love songs. He can have you in awe one minute and in tears of laughter the next with his quirky comments and introductions.
Brian’s recent appendage to his ‘Act’ is the occasional airing of self-penned and extremely witty poetry. This is not to be missed for it is believed that he could be the next Poet Loreat.
Floor Singers booked to perform on the night …
Pete performs regularly, and with acclaim, at numerous folk clubs in the Midlands. Songs from the 60s and 70s are his forte, but he wanders into other areas, too, with great success.
Julie and Robert Elverstone
Julie’s divine voice and Robert’s excellent guitar playing ensure a fabulous listening experience.
Their combined talents are definitely an education!
Jan Richardson is joined by Hedley Stone on violin and Dave Cook on guitar to produce an excellent repertoire of traditional folk, contemporary songs, and blues.
Malc is an excellent singer, plays quite a variety of instruments (most of them with strings!) and is a highly regarded solo performer. He also can be found running singarounds and acting as an MC at many festivals throughout the country.
As well as performing, Malc promotes many folk events.
Sharp As Razors
Sharp as Razors are Clive Brooks, Des Patalong, Alan Whitbread and Vaughan Hully.
They sing shanties and maritime songs, mostly upbeat but with some quieter and humorous items to give variety to their performances.
Only two of the four are able to be with us this time, but that won’t blunt the performance.
And your hosts, of course, are
