Much much news....! I hope to see you all at the SONS OF NOEL AND ADRIAN gig on the 22nd at Orange Street (see separate mailout)-these guys are amazing, multi instrumentalists of the acclaimed Willkommen Collective; Nick Hemming (banjo + mandolin) and Helen Whitaker (flute) of The Leisure Society, Marcus Hamblett (double bass) of Kopek, Alistair Strachan (horns) of Hamilton Yarns, Rowan Coupland (clarinet), Jo White (accordion), Danny Green (percussion) of Laish Quartet and Catherine Cardin....
I saw them at last years END OF THE ROAD festival, and was simply stunned, an ethereal take on dark english folk...support is from SHORELINE, whose album TIME WELL SPENT is another recent favorite of mine. The gig at Orange Street Music Club is the first night of a UK tour, and will be very very special.....
Im also really pleased to announce the return of SHARRON KRAUS to Orange street, on October the 21st (note this is a wednesday-those who attended her last gig at the venue will remember it was a saturday, and became somewhat too noisy for an a artist like Sharron-hopefully, this, and other planned mid week gigs will be more in keeping with the folk club vibe!)...she will be playing with Peter Delaney and C Joynes-
 
Here's some info about the two of them:
 
Peter Delaney lives in Limerick, Ireland. He comes from a folk music background and plays his own unique style, drawing on early Hawaiian folk songs and Alan Lomax field recordings as well as more contemporary musicians such as Joanna Newsom and Josephine Foster. Peter released his debut EP/Mini Album "Duck Egg Blue" in April 2007 to much acclaim.

Peter has played throughout the UK, Ireland and Norway and has shared the bill with A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Alasdair Roberts, Jozef van Wissem, Juana Molina and The Swell Season.

"English acoustic guitarist C Joynes uses traditional country-blues and early ragtime to explore alternative melodic traditions: the English folk-tune; North and West African music; elements of classical Indian music; proto-minimalist and impressionist musics from the European classical tradition. His approach contains a subtle and unassuming experimentation, with a penchant for reworking over-familiar pieces and stripping them of their kitsch and cliché, presenting them afresh. Joynes' music is instinctive, placid, and evokes a certain simplicity and naiveté." - Rhodri Davies
 
Joynes has released albums through labels such as Bo'Weavil and The Great Pop Supplement.  He has recorded a live broadcast session for Andy Kershaw on BBC Radio 3, and played extensively across the UK and Ireland, sharing bills with performers including Alasdair Roberts, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Jack Rose, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, Sir Richard Bishop and Steffan Basho-Junghans

That will of course be a very special night!
Last, but of course not least-tickets for the MARTIN CARTHY/OWL SERVICE gig are still selling steadily-I would advise that they are bought in advance though...tickets can be bought over the phone from the club (01227 760801), or the record stall in Canterburys indoor market (01227 470328), or reserved via me.
Ok, heres how a our diary looks as of today-
Am hoping your as excited as me!
From the shores of Summerisle....
