Dear Members,

the splendid Gaelic Voices event 18th March and The Rakes' Barn Dances, listed below.

All the best,

Peta & Ken



Friday 9th March - International Women's Day event

with SHEENA VALLELY (sparkling traditional flute player from Armagh) & JOHN SAY (percussionist extraordinaire) ,       Maggie Casey (songs and whistle) &                  Lis Stewart (fiddle & concertina) , singers    Marianne McAleer and Peta Webb



Friday 20th April


From Sheffield, Gavin is a powerful singer and a fine concertina and guitar player. His recent CD Brief Lives combines traditional ballads (with stark arrangements which expose rather than obscure the song  - " these songs have been around a lot longer than I have and deserve to speak a little louder than me" ) with strikingly original song writing on "False Knight" (a tribute to his grandfather's death in WW 2) and "Silent Alarm".

With Matt Quinn, a fine singer, fiddle and melodeon player whose music is rooted in English folk tradition.
