Hi Guys
Listen to that! .... Peace and quiet ...(apart from the constant gurgle of the washing machine) My bunnies are back to school and I can now raid my secret chocolate stash without fear of being caught, oh and more importantly get some work done!
So - firstly a reminder about a fantastic concert tomorrow night at the Canterbury Cathedral Int' Study Centre - Gordon Giltrap, 7.45pm, tickets from Sue Holton on 01843 588074 sue_at_sueholton_dot_co_dot_uk
Then on Friday week, local band 'Waterhorse' are at the Horsebridge Centre in Whitstable, worth checking out these guys.
On the same day (15th) if you are a Radio Kent listener and a ColvinQuarmby fan, listen out for Gerry & co on the Pat Marsh Show from about 11am onwards. Live in the studio and playing a few tracks from 'A Short walk to the Red Lion'. I wonder what Pat will make of Gerry!! Can't wait for that. If anyone has facility to record that on a computer, and would be willing to do so, please let me know. They will of course be plugging their gig the following day - Saturday 16th Sept - at Deal Maritime Folk Festival, 3.30pm in St George's Church, Deal.
ColvinQuarmby aren't doing a Folk in the Barn gig this Autumn so this will be your only chance to see them for a while, so book your tickets on 01304 239765 Lets give them some great

I now have a waiting list for the Chris and Kellie While gig on 30th Sept. If you've reserved tickets and not yet sent your cheque, I'd be very grateful if you would. If you'd still like the chance to come, its always worth letting me know, often people return tickets at short notice, you could still be in luck. Tickets also going fairly smoothly for the other Autumn gigs.....
