Subject: Last call for two great gigs!
Another quickie - you're keeping me too busy with all these ticket applications, no time for my usual ramblings. Thank goodness I hear you cry!
Mawkin:Causley - Talkawhiles 'Best Band' 2010 and for good reason. Selling fast now, still a few good seats to be had in the stalls and plenty still in the balcony, but they are going pretty quickly now. I'm so glad, I wondered if the Beth gig being so close might have scuppered MC's chances. It's really heartening to see they've got some great support. Thanks to all who've booked so far.
14th Feb - Whitstable Playhouse 01227 272042 £12
Beth Nielsen Chapman - Only 14 tickets left to book online and 10 to book from me. Again a fantastic response to this concert. Last chance to see her for a while, and a rare chance to see her up close and in such a stunning venue. The new cd is really beautiful, as you would expect from such a creative lady. 16th Feb - St Mary's Church, Sandwich
Email me or go to
£24 and £22 concs
Martyn Joseph - The workshop has now sold out, but there are still concert tickets available. Friday 26th and Sat 27th March - Kingston Barn. £16 email me to book.
Gigspanner will be back - on May 14th - back in the Kingston Barn, after the fantastic appearance there last year, which converted quite a few people to the brilliance that is Peter Knight. Booking end of Feb.
Fibbers is this coming Monday at the Black Robin, Kingston for the usual suspects and anyone else that is interested.
Doug Hudson reminded me that Sweeps Festival this year will have recent BBC folk award winners Bellowhead and the gorgeous Cara Dillon.
