Subject: Paul Downes at Folk in the Barn

Hi All
Isn't it great to be in England in the middle of July, warm and sunny, why anyone would want to emigrate to Australia I don't know! (all my friends and family seem to be! is there something they're not telling me???)
We've just had a wonderful weekend down in Dorset for the annual Show of Hands family festival at Abbotsbury Sub Tropical gardens - some of you were there! Hope you enjoyed it too. Great music in a stunning location and a very sociable occasion. If you were impressed by the young duo 'Megson' you may be pleased to know that I'm in negotiation with them to come and play at the Barn later in the year. We thought they were fab and my daughter begged me to buy their cd. Hopefully they will be part of what is going to be a very exciting Christmas gig at Folk in the Barn, to be announced very soon.
One of our regular FolkintheBarners Jon Chipperton has informed me of some great live music events at the Dove Inn at Dargate.
This is their line up for the rest of the year....

Sunday 3rd September - Jazz Police - one of the finest duos you will hear anywhere. Jarrod Coombes on double bass and vocals in the classic style and Jim Knowler who plays immaculate swing jazz guitar. From Django to Nat King Cole - real cool jazz.
Sunday 1st October - John Pearson and Kevin Richards.
John is one the most respected UK based acoustic musicians, a superb guitarist who has played extensively in Europe and the US, appeared on Paul Jones Radio 2 Rhythm and Blues programme on a Thursday night on more than one occasion who will be accompanied by a very inventive percussionist Kevin Richards.
Sunday 5th November - in course of booking

Sunday 3rd December - Dave Peabody and Brendan Power - to celebrate the 1st year we welcome back the duo who played the first gig. Straight acoustic guitar and harmonica blues from two masters of the trade.
All gigs are free and start at 4.30pm for a couple of hours.

Finally there are still some tickets left for Paul Downes with support from Sarah Reed on this coming Friday night in the Barn. Tickets £10. Come and relax at the end of the week and enjoy some great live music in the beautiful Barn. Email or ring me to reserve or just come along on the night.
take care
