Eastbourne Underground Theatre 16th May 2008 8pm

This will be our 3rd Glorious Year at the UGT for what must now be classed as a great Porvari tradition! As per last year we are lining up a range of
young local talent to kick off the evening; Joe Whimpenny and George O'Brien are already confirmed and we hope to add another couple of support acts. The second half will be pure Porvari - what the UGT website describes as "Original songs, many instruments (and) gutsy vocals"!
Come along and see what the fuss is all about!

Sunday 20 April   Derek Gifford  Derek is from the North-west of England where he is a stalwart of the folk scene. He is well-known for his infectious enthusiasm, humour, relaxed style and wonderful singing and guitar playing. His wide interests include sea shanties and other songs of the sea and contemporary songs which are written in the traditional idiom. In his twenty-five or so years as a folk singer he has produced eight albums.

Derek has set a number of poems by Bury poet, Keith Scowcroft, to music including When All Men Sing which has become a greatly loved folk song 'standard' across the world. It's a favourite song of local Sussex singer, Mike Nicholson. 6/4
