Dear Member,

Here's our Autumn programme. We are surprised and pleased to find ourselves celebrating our 20th Birthday in October!

We are working on a longer club history. If anyone has good clear photos, particularly of the earlier years from 1990, please send them, either by email or to Peta Webb, 52 Cecile Park, London N8 9AS

All the best,

Peta & Ken

Musical Traditions Club AUTUMN 2010

Friday September 17th  MOOR MUSIC

Mark Bazeley, Jason Rice & Rob Murch

Mark (melodeon and concertina) and Jason (accordion) have been playing since childhood, absorbing the unique Dartmoor style from their respective grandfathers Bob Cann and Jack Rice.  Rob (5-String banjo) also learnt from a young age and has become one of the finest exponents of this once popular but now rarely heard style.  One of the best truly traditional acts, doing what they do, simply because they enjoy it. 

With English songs from Andrew King



Friday 15th October



Will Noble and John Cocking have a rich repertoire of songs learned in their native South Pennines, heard in pubs and at hunt suppers from the older generation of traditional singers. Will's rendition of The Mistletoe Bough has become indispensable at the Sheffield carols while John excels in performing comic monologues and the occasional ribald piece.  We are very pleased to have them as guests for our
