Wonderful Mr Jim Causley is coming next (13th November) and his concert is sold out, but I'm sure there'll be returns before the night if you'd like to go on the waiting list.
Mr Martyn Joseph will be here soon too - 20th Nov and tickets are selling well but still good availability at the moment. Do come if you haven't seen him before - an exceptional live performer, who knows what's what!
Still some good seats left for the breathtaking Cara Dillon too. All gig details are on the website as usual. www.folkinthebarn.co.uk
Our pal Mick O'Rourke has a spare ticket for Billy Bragg & Joe Henry at the Marlowe. They will be performing their new album of songs about the North American railway history on Wednesday 9th November. The ticket is in the stalls Q26 and cost ?23 but he would accept any reasonable offer. Mick was looking forward to coming but an important appointment means he can no longer go. Please let me know if you'd like it and I'll pass you on to Mick.
Ticket are now available to book for the band's 50th Anniversary Tour, with two dates at the Gulbenkian next February. You can read more and BOOK HERE
I've just got back from an amazing three weeks on tour in Holland, Belgium and Germany with Fairport Convention. It was a great adventure and we got to meet some lovely people and see some amazing places. The theatres and facilities are exceptional, no expense spared and not a scuff or bit of litter in sight. On the last day we visited Poelcapelle Cemetery and sought out the grave of young John Condon, the youngest soldier to die in the trenches of the first world war. And all around the Harp and Crown of his regiment, carved on his headstone, there were little remembrance crosses in the ground, exactly as the song depicts. It was very moving and Simon's rendition of the song in the concert that night was something else. Fairport are now in the studio recording their next album as well as celebrating Peggy's 69th birthday. I've attached annA rydeR's present to Peggy below.
Love and peace
