Our Next Special Guest – Paul Reaney. 20th February

Dont miss the chance to see our old friend Paul’s visit to the club.   ‘Nestonboy’ himself is a very fine singer/songwriter who effortlessly entertains with his varied talents, so if you like your music a little bit country-rockabilly this is the one for you.  This is sure to be another super night at the club, so arrive early to get your favourite spot.

Check-out Paul on youtube, especially my favoured ‘A Town Like This’

OUR MORALS – 28th November.

141128-4297Emma Runswick and Josh Cartwright, a.k.a. ‘Our Morals’ made a welcome return to the club as our special guests to round off the 2014  list.

Operating as a duo these days the talented couple gave a superb performance with Emma on guitar & concertina and Josh on acoustic bass interspersed with his skill as a classically trained trumpet player, but mainly it’s the tight harmonies that make the pair stand out from the crowd.

Their opening song was ‘Worried Well’  and honestly, Emma admitted to a first ever mistake in this song, it goes without saying that none of the audience spotted it. Then they took us back to the 1980s with Delimitre’s ‘Nothing ever happens’ but some of the crowd were reminiscing about the 1880s.

The amiable young couple did two highly enjoyable 40 minute sets covering Folk-Jazz and Gospel, I do think we will be hearing a lot from Emma & Josh in the future.

The rest of the spaces were filled by our very own talented regulars.

The Big Sixty. … – 7th. November

141107-2960

Birthday boy Ron

There was yet another Birthday this week and this time it was the turn of loyal club supporter Ron Lester celebrating the big day. With posh, specially made cakes and a super spread of sandwiches-pies-rolls and volleyballs etc.

Ron has been an ever-present since first attending  the club.

We also welcomed to the club Ann & Mike who traveled from the midlands to be with us and what a talented duo they are.

Mike is a virtuoso of the blues/jazz guitar and possesses a perfect gravelly voice, the opposite of Ann’s smooth cultured pipes.

141107-2928

Ann and Mike

The wonderful Peter Stevens was with us again and gave us ‘ The Contender’ & ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’ …..Marvelous!

Our friends Dave King & Derek Smith from Conwy Folk Club popped in with Derek getting the crowd giggling with ‘On Again-On Again-On Again’ in the style of the late, great Jake Thakery.

Dave gave us ‘Kind Hearted Woman’  and Love Machine’ in his own inimitable style. 

Annie & ‘Throbbin’ Bob  were their usual brilliant best, with Annie’s voice recovered from laryngitis.

141107-2942

Derek Smith

We had a guitar medley from  ‘Fingers’ Bill Conde and Geoff Hollis gave usOnly Remembered‘. Chris ‘B’ did Merry Hell’s ‘The War Between Ourselves.’

Richard & Wendy up next with ‘You’re My Best Friend‘ and Wendy sang superbly,  ‘Tonight The War Is Over’.

Tom & Linda refrained from doing any rain dances and the evening came to an end with Peter & Tom on Spoons & Ukelele respectivly.

The Boys Are Back In Town – 31st Oct.

141031-7098

It was great to see the return of Harry & John back in the club after their medical hiatuses, so the band was back-Tom,Dick,Harry & John Bass, it’s always a good night in their company and the good news is they will be back again next week folks.

On the scary halloween night we also had the marvelous talents of Elaine Walker who trotted in with hubby Bryan and her super voice and smooth guitar style is always a pleasure.

141031-7142Wee Willy Whiskey was slaughtered by the Green Eyed Monster mid-song and Wendy & Richard were bewitched with pointy headwear.

Annie & ‘Throbbin’ Bob’ were in da’ house and although Annie was recovering from a spell of laryngitus, it did not detract from their usual polished performance.

But the curse of Linda, (or to give her the proper title ,’Rain Dance Degney’,)  struck again when she sang another ‘rain-song’ ten minutes later the heavens opened, this happens so often now, I genuinely think the woman posesses super powers.

We also had George-Vin-Geoff-Tony & Chris ‘B’ to make the night another cracker at ‘The Happy Club’

 

 More fun and music next Friday.

Welcomme, Finnan & Chrimes – October 24th.

Frank, John and Andy,  141024-6959aka Welcomme Finnan & Chrimes were our special guests and now we know why we added special to the titles.

The multi talented musicians were very special, not only as performers but as people and blended in seamlessly to the ethos of the club and it’s members.

With John Finnan as the main lead vocalist he was suitably supported by the brilliant harmonies of Andy Chrimes and Frank Welcomme, but both also took turns to take the lead  giving the sets variety.

Not only vocally perfect, the band displayed a copious array of instruments – John on Guitar and Auto-Harp, Andy with Guitar, Mandolin, 5 String Banjo, and Accordion and Frank with Upright Bass, Guitar, Harp and Accordion, with the last two playing a super medley of Deep in The Darkest Night &  A Whiter Shade of Pale.

141024-6941John, who is by the way,  a cousin of the dearly missed club favourite  Margaret Mealey, did one of her standards the Richard Shindell’s number,  Mary Magdelene.  All in all a superbly crafted performance from this unassuming trio.

The evening also delivered support from our regulars, two of which were celebrating birthdays  (yet more cake)  Geoff Hollis and Anne Taylor, we never disclose a ladies age, but it was Geoff who had the 6-5 special.
