Dear Member,   
 Hope to see you at our summer  events.
 All the best,
Peta Webb & Ken Hall   
Friday 6th June 
Brendan McGlinchey and Oliver Mulligan : two All-Ireland champions
Fiddle- player Brendan, from Co. Armagh, is  a master of decorative style, renowned both for his technical virtuosity and his great feeling for the old style music.
Oliver  is originally from Co. Monaghan  where his style and many of his songs were learned, he later added Gaelic songs  from the West.   Long resident in London, he  is a much respected singer  in both English and Irish.
   With Will Duke and Dan Quinn plus poetry from  special guest  Racker Donnelly
 FRIDAY 4th JULY    Dearman, Gammon & Harrison
Annie Dearman, Vic Gammon and Steve Harrison perform English traditional songs and tunes in a robust and firmly rooted English style, accompanied on various squeezeboxes, banjo and mouthorgan. Their repertory comes from traditional singers and instrumentalists; from  folk song collectors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; from manuscript tune and song books , ballad sheets and songs  they just happen to hear and like. Their CD Black Crow White Crow has had great reviews:
'This laid-back style serves the songs very well; there's breathing space here for the words and music to work their genial spell.... ' (Stirrings)
'… powerful lusty vocals from Annie Dearman, Steve Harrison's sensitive melodeon accompaniment, distinctive unaccompanied singing of Vic Gammon.... What stands out for me are the wonderful tunes to the largely traditional material ..' (Shreds and Patches)
'A really rather splendid album.... Singers such as Dearman, Gammon and Harrison are producing a new tradition - one based firmly in the older traditions, but also one that displays its own vitality and innovation.' (Musical Traditions)
 With American songs to celebrate the 4th of July
                                                               from Peta Webb , Ken Hall and Simon Hindley

Probably the most exciting trad combinations of recent times, together Matt Molloy and John Carty explore the rich and varied tapestry of the fiddle and flute tradition of
North Connaught. Matt Molloy is regarded as the greatest exponent of flute playing alive, a member of the Chieftains for more than two decades he was also a founder member of the legendary Bothy Band. John Carty’s musical prowess has grown steadily since his debut recording 12 years ago and he has since produced a plethora of solo recordings. Both Matt and John are recipients of the prestigious TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year Award. They are delighted to be joined on the album by Ireland’s number one guitar player, Arty McGlynn. His subtle guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment to this unique duet. 

Regular Irish sessions  continue at the Auld Triangle on Sunday evenings
 with Reg Hall on piano.
