||Singaround - Cancelled by the pub at short
notice because decorators still at work.
Turner - A tradition bearer and surely one of the best
singers on the folk circuit, Steve has a great selection of songs
to which he adds outstanding accompaniment on concertina and cittern.
These days he plays the clubs and venues he enjoys so we're delighted
he chooses us! Relocating for the
night to "The Welly" at Wolviston (during refurbishment
at the George & Dragon).
Trousers - A vocal trio from the Merseyside area who
perform folk songs, work songs and shanties. They have a terrific
sound and will be great to join in with. Sample tracks on YouTube.
Goulder - A rare opportunity to hear the writer of The
January Man, one of the best songs to come out of the folk revival,
as witnessed by the many singers who have performed and recorded it.
Many more excellent songs were inspired by his interests and experience
as a naturalist, railwayman and dry stone waller. In the latter role
he achieved the status of master craftsman and it has often been said
that this accolade applies equally to his songwriting and singing.
||Singaround - 100 years since the end of World War 1

Cup, we welcome an old friend of the Club - excellent voice and guitar-
