Bert Draycott -- we're very sad to learn that Bertie has died
suddenly at home a few weeks short of his 87th birthday. We're not
trying to replace him as our guest tonight but propose to make this
a night to remember him and celebrate the joie de vivre he showed
in his performances. (Free entry)

Sussex, Matt first visited us as a Newcastle student. He is also a
dab hand at the duet concertina and the mandolin. More recently he

the big story-songs. "... traditional music is in safe hands"

singer who enhances a great range of songs with excellent, unobtrusive
guitar. He is well known as an ambassador for Australian folk songs
