Subject: Autumn Season 2017 - Martin Simpson Tomorrow




A warm welcome to the start of the new Autumn Season 2017



Hi Everyone

Its great to be back - how was your Summer? Full of music, sunshine and good things I hope. Ours was pretty hectic, but terrific fun too and as usual the new season has crept up so fast and caught me unprepared.  I think it's given the website a bit of a fright too because that seems to have gone off in a huff.  I'm told 'experts' are 'on it' so hopefully it will be back very soon. 


We are so looking forward to tomorrow night and Martin Simpson coming for the first concert of our new Season of Folk in the Barn.  Martin will be at the Gulbenkian with his brand new (20th) solo album ?Trails & Tribulations' from which he will be performing new music alongside old favourites.

In case any of you haven't yet seen or heard of this amazing musician - Martin is listed in the Gibson Guitar's 'Top 30 Acoustic Guitarists of all Time', and also has the most nominations of any performer in the 15 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. His playing is pure genius, every gig a masterclass.

"Martin is in a class of his own. He is such an expressive player; he is ingenious in his use of the guitar. You can listen to one of his songs and three or four minutes in, he has only used the top four strings and not even played a bass note yet, and when he does, it feels like an orchestra coming in. His clarity of playing is just amazing." Jackson Browne

Martin will be supported by exciting young singer songwriter James Riley

"Phenomenal" Dick Gaughan

Smiles Tickets

Please don't forget our 'Smiles Tickets' , If you're not aware of this, we offer a few tickets, when we can, to someone who could benefit from a bit of light relief. A fun and hopefully uplifting evening out to counter the sometimes tougher times of life.  We've all come away feeling better from a great gig, and if you know of someone going through a difficult time and want to help lift their spirits or provide a welcome distraction for a few hours, I can't think of a better way.  Let me know in complete confidence.



Bye for now
