Hi Everyone
Just to let you know that booking is open now for all the Spring dates up till end of May and full details of all the concerts are on the website. Bookings are flooding in so please be quick if you want to be certain of tickets. Please remember you can also have the convenience of booking online at all the gigs are now listed there, but please don't reserve them with me and then book online because they'll be allocated to you twice, and I'll get even more confused than usual! For Show of Hands at the Quarterhouse in Folkestone, you’ll need to book direct with the venue on 01303 858500

Megson has sold out in record time, thanks everyone! Really looking forward to that. The next concert - The Travelling Talesman with Reg Meuross and Tom Palmer still has availability and promises to be an excellent evening with two great guys. If you haven't seen them - trust me! - have I ever let you down? Here's some persuasional blurb below....

Reg Meuross and Tom Palmer are two of the West Country's finest singer- songwriters. Performing as The Travelling Talesmen their contrasting styles weave together seamlessly to produce a evening full of songs - tales of love, legends, villainy and heroism, friendship and fools. On stage together throughout the show, they swap songs, sing solos and perform inspired duets from their joint repertoire; drawing from a collection of self penned songs taken from their critically acclaimed solo albums.

Reg Meuross is described as a ‘master storyteller’ (Pennyblack Music). Using clever and imaginative lyrics, Reg has earned his reputation as one of the most talented folk/roots musicians around. From gigging in village halls to The Royal Albert Hall, Reg consistently delights his audiences with songs of life, love and injustice; all soulfully delivered with melodic high-tenor vocals, exemplary guitar playing and a warm, engaging style which draws you into his music.

Tom Palmer is described by Mike Harding as a 'great singer-songwriter'. He was the first artist signed by Phil Beer (Show of Hands) to his Chudleigh Roots label and is a big man with a musical personality to match. 'His gravelly and deeply powerful resonant voice is an extraordinary instrument; his guitar playing is both accomplished and satisfying' (Netrhythms). Combined with songs of passion and places, of tenderness and torn lives, emotions and everything in between, Tom is firmly placed amongst the ‘must-sees’.

I love them both, but they're so different, you really are getting two for the price of one here!
