                                     2012 Dates

Friday 13th January

Jeff Wesley - a splendid traditional singer. A farmer in Northamptonshire all his working life, Jeff has put together a cherished collection of songs from neighbours and local farm workers.

                                                                         With The Pigeon English Band

 

 

Friday 24th February - Jeff Davis (USA)                                                         Jeff Davis, superb old-time fiddle player, is a master of clawhammer banjo, guitar & mandolin without ever striving for showy licks or empty virtuosity. His singing, based on long immersion in the styles of the old singers is truly timeless, conjuring vividly the world of the cowboy or the Civil War soldier.   "When Jeff Davis sings the repertoire of the Appalachian Mountains, he cuts through decades and across borders, sitting us right down in the dirt in front of a weather-beaten shack, at the feet of a hillbilly singer - he combines authenticity and art in a rare way." Chronicle Herald of Nova Scotia   http://www.brian-peters.co.uk/Jeffdavis.htm
