Subject: Venue change Lewes Saturday Folk Club 2nd April

APRIL listings

Dear Everyone,
We now have splendid, comfortable new chairs at the Elephant. The old bow-legged ones with the prolapsed springs and sunken stuffing have been consigned to the dustbin of history, so I shall feel very out of place. N.B. On 30th. April we are in The Crown rather than the Elephant.

APR 02             
BARRIE & INGRID TEMPLE  6
Traditional Newcastle & Barrie's own songs in stirring vocal harmony with English concertina

CHANGE OF VENUE
Due to a double-booking at the Crown and a merciful last-minute cancellation at the Elephant & Castle, the Lewes Saturday Folk Club will be back in its usual room in the Elephant on Saturday 2nd.

Elephant & Castle
, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2D


APR 09          
THE CLAQUE
 7
The Claque blends four voices of depth & maturity with serious folk pedigrees: Tom Addison, Barry Lister, Dave Lowry & Sean O'Shea. All have been in one or more of the legendary groups The Songwainers, Hollinmor & Isca Fayre. They sing mainly traditional songs in rich, striking, inventive harmonies which vary from sweet & solemn through bright & cheery to dark & dangerous.

THE CLAQUE BALLAD FORUM
10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m.        Places 20
Tom, Barry & Sean are also distinguished & well-informed solo singers of ballads. Barry's solo CD Ghosts & Greasepaint features several classics. (Unfortunately Dave cannot be with us on this occasion.) In the forum they will sing & discuss some of their choice.

* You are invited to bring at least one traditional ballad to sing & talk about. Ballads chosen so far:
The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry, The Carnal and the Crane, The Outlandish Knight, Tam Lin, The Brown Girl, Sovay, Two Sisters, Lil Musgrave (Matty Groves), Thomas the Rhymer, George Collins, The Bonny Bunch of Roses , Long Lankin, The Captain's Apprentice, Gamble Gold (Henry Burstow), Barbara Allen.
