Ok thats the parish announcements over, now onto Folk in the Barn stuff...
Steve Knightley will be doing a live interview on the Pat Marsh show on Monday May 14, 11am ish to talk about his forthcoming gig in Canterbury. Talking of which, there are still some tickets available - next Thursday 17th May at the Canterbury Cathedral ISC. Also can I please remind those who have yet to pay to do so please, it just saves so much time and messing around on the door on the night, if it can be done in advance. Lets everyone get to their seats (and the Bar) quicker.
I've stolen this post from another website re Steve and Jennas recent gig in Lancaster... "Just the most wonderful evening at the highly atmospheric Chaplaincy at Lancaster Uni - a brilliant opening set from Jenna (fantastic voice, great piano/keyboard), but then Mr Knightley blew in... WOW, it is so wonderful to have yet more new material from the best singer/songwriter in the country, touching all the emotions - funny, sad, strident but always totally engaging - one of the best evenings ever (since the last SoH gig...) Please come up north again, Steve & Jenna "
email me or ring for details 07799 790738

That's it for now

Next FiB'ers night is May 21st in the Kingston Barn, then June 11th. Details of other gigs, including the Folk in the Barn / Whitstable Oyster Festival collaberation - on the website
cheers m'dears (as Phil Beer would say)
