Subject: FitB - Snow & Music report
Hope you've got at least two pairs of socks on today, doesn't matter if they match of course, just as long as they're nice and long. Another word of weather-based advice - don't stare up at the sky out of the window watching falling snow, it makes you go dizzy, trust me! Who had fun driving home from the Marlowe last night then? It's very weird driving down the A2 when you can't see the white lines or the cats eyes. Slightly scary but it was worth it to see the great man - Richard Thompson himself ...on our doorstep. I don't need to tell you because I saw most of you there didn't I !! Hope you all got home safely. And yes it was fab wasn't it. Richard Thompson does Abba - How bizarre was that! Right get on with it Debs...
IMPORTANT NEWSFLASH - THE GULBENKIAN IS CLOSED TONIGHT - THOSE WITH TICKETS FOR DERVISH OR THE CINEMA CAN GET AN EXCHANGE OR REFUND.
I have an idea.....get a refund and book tickets for Megson instead :o) There are only half the tickets left now, they're going fast. All details on the website, which has now been updated.
There are some video clips on my myspace too.....
Listen to the Folk Awards on Mike Harding on Wednesday (assuming they go ahead tonight!!) and see how Megson fare with their nomination for best duo. Good Luck Meggies (and everyone else too of course!!)
SOME VERY VERY VERY GOOD NEWS!
Some of you were aware that due to a change of management last year, there had been problems with the continued use of the Cathedral venue by FitB. There has been another change of management there recently and I've been assured that we are very welcome to continue to use the venue and acceptable terms have been agreed. This is fantastic news and I've already arranged a couple of dates there later in the year including Chris While and Julie Matthews (Sept 11th) and St Agnes Fountain (Dec 8th). Its far too early to take bookings for those yet, but please make a note on your calendars now if you are interested, so that you don't get double booked.
OTHER LOCAL CONCERTS
This Weds - Faversham Folk Club have Tom McConville, Mary Gautier is at the Gulbenkian and Fibbers regulars - Dave, Steve and Bob's band Homage are at the Bell and Crown in Canterbury! Plenty of choice on Wednesday then.
Fri 6th Gulbenkian - Keith James & Rick Foot - The Poetry of Lorca Set to Music Wed 11th Faversham have Alan Prosser and ?? - book now or miss out Wed 18th Orange St Club have Tim Edey
I expect full details of all these and more can be found on Beau Webbers Kent Folk website
Martyn Joseph fans will be pleased to know that as well as seeing him at the Whitstable Playhouse on April 25th for Folk in the Barn, he is doing a concert at Fleet Leisure, Northfleet on 20th March, tickets and info 01474 743201
From Whitstable Folk Club - A bit of disappointing news - Roy Bailey has had to cancel due to ill health. However, the good news is Alan Prosser (Oyster Band) is coming instead ! I think everyone enjoyed his gig at the club last year - this time he is bringing a fiddle player, Adrian Hackford, so it should be a good night. Hope you can make it. Obviously if you have bought a ticket for Roy and no longer wish to come we will give you a refund. (info_at_whitstablefolk_dot_co_dot_uk)
