Sorry there have been no events for a while, no venue.
They wont be happening as regularly, but at last I have a potential venue, and I am in discussion with
Allison Williams (see below) and with the venue as to a possible gig in June,
also re: a possible gig with
Saskia Tomkins and Brandon Scott Behara at the end of March (see below)

There is no guarantee at this stage that these next two gigs will happen, but if you are interested, please email me (please list which of the possible dates you can do), and the chances will go up :
They will probably be in Bridge, near Canterbury ...

Possible dates : March 28th, 29th or 30th :
an evening of music from Saskia Tomkins (violin, viola, nyckelharpa) and Brandon Scott Behara (acoustic guitar, banjo and saxophone).

Probable date : Friday June 17th :
Allison Williams Old Time music Claw Hammer Banjo, vocals, played the London Barbican a couple of years ago.
Appeared at Grove Ferry last year, with Chance McCoy on fiddle. This year she is with
Rachel Eddy, a fantastic West Virginia fiddler/multi-instrumentalist"

These wont happen unless I have a good number of replies with yeses with dates.
