                MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB   WINTER  2008
Dear Member,  
 Happy New Year !  Hope to see you at some of our events.
All the best,
Peta Webb & Ken Hall   
Friday 11th January  2008
We are pleased to welcome the legendary TOM PALEY, JOE LOCKER
and  BEN PALEY. London-based  Old Time String Band  featuring fiddle,
 5-string banjo and guitar , Tom and Joe have worked together since 1966
and Ben’s fine fiddle playing is a recent  welcome addition.  They have a
classic repertoire from the likes of Charlie Poole, Cliff Carlisle and Uncle
 Dave Macon and recently released a new CD  "Dealing a New Hand".
                                                                          With Gail Williams and Jim Younger.
                                         TWO FEBRUARY DATES :
Friday 1st  February    BOAT BAND 
The BOAT BAND are :Greg Stephens (guitar, banjo), Kate Barfield (fiddle, trombone), Mark Burke (percussion, accordions),  Tony Weatherall (accordions) and they all share the vocals. Well known to Cajun enthusiasts for their authentic dance music, they have also explored their native Cumbrian music over the years and we look forward  to tunes and songs  from both traditions tonight.

After playing for many years, trawling the venues of Britain and beyond, THE BOAT BAND have picked up a huge and varied catch of tunes: Creole, Caribbean, gospel, Cajun, zydeco and blues - not much slips through the net.If it touches the heart and moves the feet, it's in the repertoire.

Their latest venture takes the band away from the cajun twosteps of South Louisiana to the dance music of northwest England, drawing on the rich tradition of some thousands of tunes collected by and from the musicians of Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. The favourite current source of good tunes is the Langdale fiddler William Irwin. and The Boat Band have just released new CD "A TRIP TO THE LAKES" featuring these tunes. Come along and enjoy the English tunes and songs nestling in alongside the already eclectic offerings.

Friday 29th  February   Róisín White    

One of the foremost song carriers of the Ulster tradition, Roisin has a wonderful rough velvet voice and a jaunty style all her own. We are delighted to welcome her back .
