||Singaround - Plough Monday
- The big guy from the Wilson family released his second
solo CD in 2018, bringing a great voice and superb, natural timing
to a great selection of folk songs, old and new. Bound to be a great
start to our 2019 guest programme.
Russell & Chris Parkinson - First time here as a
duo for two old favourites. Ali is a Stockton "old-boy"
who moved on from The Distillers to 13 years with the legendary Battlefield
Band. "Parky" is a renowned squeezebox player whose list
of collaborations reads like a who's who of folk music. Expect a lively
mix of Scottish and Irish songs and music performed in great style.
Tan Tether - Welome back to a close harmony trio who
have been dubbed "the golden tonsils of Otley" by
Mike Harding. Tess, Lynne and Rosie play a variety of instruments
but concentrate mainly on beautiful a capella arrangements
of a fine mix of songs.
Welch & Stewart Hardy - George is a North East institution
known for hilarious stories, driving tunes on guitar and moving songs
in a fine baritone voice. Stewart is a fiddle player (and teacher)
with an international reputation for rhythmic virtuosity and sensitive
accompaniments. They promise a night of spontaneous fun.
Wyndham Read - An old favourite, Martyn is a warm,
hypnotic singer who complements a superb voice with excellent, unobtusive
guitar. He is well known as an ambassador for Australian folk songs
but is also a champion for Graeme Miles compositions.
from Oberlin Ohio, describes herself as a song-finder not
a song-writer. She brings a powerful voice to a huge repertoire of
(mostly) American songs and ballads. Her command of narrative style
and deep respect for traditions have earned respect on both sides
of the Atlantic.
Listings for other clubs in the north east can be
found in "Folk Roundabout", for sale at the club.
