1. Horsham folk Club Upcoming Guests
Lewes Saturday Folk Club _at_ Crown Inn 27 November - extra treats
From: "jbyng" <jbyng_at_btinternet_dot_com>
Date: 26 November 2010 00:09:55 GMT
Subject: Horsham Folk Club & other local events
Dear Horsham Folk Club Members and friends
The club programme is available at http://www.horshamfolkclub.co.uk/ but the next couple of gigs are listed below.
Sunday 28 November Tattie Jam
Tattie Jam offers a distinctive brew of songs, from dark ballads and protest songs to off-the wall humour and tunes ranging from slow airs to kinetic jigs and reels. Much of the material is given a playful or funky contemporary twist, with contrast provided by the odd a capella song or unaccompanied tune.
Seylan Baxter and Ruaridh Pringle are highly accomplished singer/instrumentalists. They offer a varied but harmonious blend of reinterpreted traditional Scottish songs and tunes, as well as songs and tunes written by Ruaridh. http://www.tattiejam.com/
Admission £7 (members £5), under 18s free.
Sunday 5 December Sara Grey with Kieron Means and Ben Paley
Sara Grey has a quality of voice that compels undivided attention. Her voice is both powerful and sweet with a distinctive and lovely tremolo. It is well suited to the native American ballads and ballads of Ireland and Scotland that she performs. Sara is accompanied by her son, Kieron Means, a singer primarily of traditional songs but also of contemporary songs and a guitar player of great merit. Also playing is Ben Paley. Born in London, he was surrounded by traditional music from the outset. Ben's beautiful and lively fiddle playing perfectly complements Sara and Kieron's traditional singing and playing. http://www.maclurg.com/SaraGrey/index.htm
Admission £8 (members £6), under 18s free.

Subject: Lewes Saturday Folk Club _at_ Crown Inn 27 November - extra treats
A reminder that this Saturday we meet at The Crown Inn, 191 High Street, Lewes BN7 2NA. Our guests are Alan Day and Mike Ainscough, playing folk, blues, ragtime, rock'n'roll & music hall on Anglo concertina, guitar, voices, mandolin and fiddle. Here's a specimen: http://www.youtube.com/user/MrTenorGuitar#p/u/11/WMuAdaFDLb0.
Also joining us will be the excellent Twagger Band (Ian Chisholm, Will Duke, Sue Evans, Joy & Derrick Hughes) http://www.myspace.com/thetwaggerband. Reliable sources confirm that Derrick has recently acquired a tuba, but will have to keep it penned separately from his serpent and Northumbrian pipes to prevent an unplanned mating.
We'll be treated to a monologue or two from the inimitable Jim Ward, in his erudite but somehow shifty style.
Entrance £5, floor singers welcome as usual. We'll be at The Crown on Saturday 4th. December as well with Roister, but back in the Elephant on 11th. December with Martin Carthy.
