A feast of squeezeboxes!      We also celebrate Ken Hall's 60th Birthday.
TICKETED EVENT details below

"...... English music, that's what I'm passionate about.  There's a mix of accordion, concertina, and single-row melodeon, with more songs than tunes. Some of them I've been doing a very long time and I've just never tired of doing them..... In "The Bells",  I fling the concertina around at arms length for quite some time and the circular motion produces a Doppler effect, generating a sound very much like church bells. "It's an old music-hall act, I've been doing it forever, since before I had a concertina - I used to borrow from two blokes in the Hammersmith Morris! The late Father Kenneth Loveless (the rural dean of Hackney) used to do it........ ......"Bogie's Bonnie Belle", a song that is usually done quite softly and romantically, but  it's much more robust. "It's a version by Davy Stewart and he's a busker, and whenever he sang he always just stood there and sang as loudly as he could and flattened people against the wall. I just like that approach. I like to make a lot of noise myself. I try to grab people by the scruff of the neck and say listen to this! Listen to this! I like to play with a lot of energy and I think an audience deserves that I give a performance everything I've got".
