Hi All
In response to quite a few enquiries, I should point out that bookings are also now open for the December concert St Agnes Fountain, which will be the last FiTB concert at the Cathedral ISC boo hoo! This will make my postman happier as heíll have a lighter load to deliver. Sorry to those who might have posted their cheque already. If youíd like tickets for both let me know and I can return them in one envelope to save a stamp.
St Agnes Fountain for those who donít know, consist of the wondrous Chris While and her singing partner Julie Matthews, with Fairportís Chris Leslie and singer and writer David Hughes. This is many peoples favourite gig of the year and one not to be missed.
In 2001, David was the founder member of the St Agnes Fountain project. Together with Chris Leslie, Chris While and Julie Matthews, the band recorded an album of Christmas music and enjoyed a sell-out December tour that has already established itself as a "seasonal tradition", the band touring with great success each December since with three further albums including a second live album released in December 2005.
Usually selling out across the country, these four amazing musicians will provide the perfect heartwarming start to the run up to Christmas, an antidote to the stress and the misery of the shopping and the.. er.. shopping!. And - just to raise your spirits even further and make sure your cockles will be thoroughly warmed weíll have spicy mulled pies and mince wine oh you know what I mean. Tickets for this are £16 and £14 for concessions. Cheques to me please D Earl plus SAE for returning them. The concert date is Sunday 7th December, doors opening at 7.15pm, music starting at 8pm, unreserved seating. Please pass on the info to anyone you think might be interested.
Had fun at Broadstairs yesterday, Cara Dillon was as talented and lovely as ever despite the creaky stage! Those who saw her in Dec at the ISC will be relieved to know that Sam (Lakeman) eventually remembered the combination for his new suitcase 11 months after forgetting it having taken it on tour with them in order to keep trying all the different possible combinations back in the hotel after the gig, and is now pleased to have his clothes back. Great story.
Sky Hook were very good, look out for them. www.myspace.com/skyhookuk
Iíve been told that one (or two) folk in the barn listees are playing there on Thursday a band called Tin Carousel at the Bandstand in the afternoon and at the Tartar Frigate in the evening, go along and support fellow Barners. In fact just go along to Broadstairs at any time this week thereís so much to choose from.
ColvinQuarmby fans can see the boys (and girl) at Canterbury Festival Club on Monday 20th October. Booking for that opens today at www.canterburyfestival.co.uk/bt.asp or Festival Box Office 01227 378188 Itís not a massive venue so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets only £9 which is a bargain.
An exciting new music venue project for Canterbury has just been given the go ahead. You can read about the plans for St Gregorys Centre here..
