Subject: Fibbers Update!
At last - I'm typing this from my new office!! After weeks of struggle with trying to work in a dusty noisy building site, I'm finally installed in a proper working space - I'm not on the landing any more - hooray!!! I still have builders banging and drilling overhead for probably another month at least, so it's not quite back to normality yet, but we're getting there.
In the meantime I have a couple of bits of news - first of all the first Folk in the Barn concert of the year will be in May - go get your diarys now I'll wait till you get back. Ok? got a pen handy? This is going to be sooo brilliant.... May 16th ... in the Kingston Barn.... A one-off - very special event with none other than our very dear - Mr Phil Beer..... AND.... his good friends the superbly talented singer songwriter Mr Reg Meuross...... AND........ the equally superbly talented singer songwriter Mr Tom Palmer. This was originally Phil's idea last year but we couldn't find a date to fit all three. Ironically re-arrangements in the Show of Hands schedule due to little Jack Knightley's illness has meant that we can now present this special evening. Phil is currently touring with Reg, as he has done many times before, you may have seen them at Dartford Folk club last year, when a packed audience was given a stunning performance by the duo. Tom I saw twice last year, guestin
Folk in the Barn member Phil Weatherly has recommended a forthcoming concert on the 23rd Feb at the Gulbenkian with a band called Carmina.
'Carmina make a welcome return to the Gulbenkian after four years with their stunning new album My Crescent City - a sophisiticated mix of Celtic influences, traditional tunes and jazz style improvisation in haunting and uplifting songs. The five piece band line-up includes rising star of Irish traditional music Diarmaid Moynihan on uilleann pipes and whistles, jazz virtuoso Geoff Castle on keyboards, Chris Haigh on fiddle, along with band founders and co-writers Pippa Marland on vocals,saxes and whistles and Rob King on acoustic guitar,mandola and bodhran'.
I'v'e heard the cd and I'm looking forward to seeing a live performance.
Phil B fans can also catch him solo at Faversham folk club on the 20th of this month - save me a ticket Andy!!
FiBers news - Next gathering is Monday 18th Feb at Simons.
