              MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB  Spring  2010 

 
 
Dear Musical Traditions Club Member, 

Hope to see you soon !

All the best,

Peta & Ken 

   

 

Friday  19th February

Bartram, Brookes & Weatherall

a rare chance to hear these three together, singing and playing a selection of English songs and dance tunes.

Chris 'Yorkie' Bartram has long been recognised as one of the finest singers “not on the folk-club scene, being

far happier in an informal setting. As are Neil Brookes (fiddle) and TonyWeatherall (melodeon) who play

regularly together in  sessions. 

        Chris Bartram: Yorkie -Traditional Songs From England, (Coughing Dog Music) There can't be more than a handful of people

in the country who can sing the old songs in a way which is utterly convincing - Chris is one of them….Rod Stradling: Musical Traditions. 

     The Whitchurch Hornpipe: Neil Brookes and Tony Weatherall (Wildgoose Records)

 A model of the way that English dance music should be played - plain functional music

 that also makes exciting listening when played with this zest.

 Vic Smith :  Folk  Roots                                            

 

With special guest ROBIN GILLAN   who sings to his own fiddle / banjo squeezebox / accompaniment, switching

from Davie Stewart to Roscoe Holcomb songs  with equal conviction.
