BOOKED SO FAR FOR 2016 ...

29th March

Debra Cowan
((£8 / £9)

Delicious vocals and an engaging style make Debra one of our most requested returners. Some Transatlantic ballads you won’t hear elsewhere and rousing chorus worksongs too.

5th April

Kieth Kendrick & Sylvia Needham
(£8 / £9)

Keith and Sylvia sing mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and beyond.

Both have a very wide ranging repertoire, strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, affording an exciting enhancement in duo and between them produce a striking acapella harmony sound. With a formidable history of performing experience behind them, their recorded work is matched only by their live gigs which are always a vocal and musical revelation as well as a hoot! They also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument – the Concertina. And when they’re not doing that you’ll probably find them playing lively and stirring music for the Winster Morris Dancers.

19th April

Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner
(£7 / £8)

Individually, and in combination with a variety of well-known singers and bands, Lynne Heraud and Pat Turner have both served long apprenticeships on the shop-floor of folk music.

Lynne sang in a duo with Sue Ashby; performed with John Lambert and Frank Lee as Tom, Dick and Harriet; and has made a CD, 'Stars in My Crown' with Keith Kendrick. She was, for many years, the organiser and MC for the Hoddesdon Folk Club.

Pat toured for six years with the folk band Filigree, making an album and also releasing a single! She was co-founder and MC of the City Folk Club in London.

Together they later joined Pete Cunningham (ex-English Tapestry and Heritage) to form Brandis, making several radio appearances. They finally settled into a permanent duo and made their first CD, 'Parallel', in 2003, and have since made three more on the Wildgoose label.

Between them they play guitar, recorder, English concertina and a variety of whistles (including swanee, policeman's and referee's), list a spoons workshop in their hall of fame, and are not in the least averse to dressing up or dancing when a song requires it. They both agree, however, that their voices are their most important instruments. Their resulting style is a unique blend of stunning song and harmony, and a humour which takes their audience on a roller-coaster ride - "everything from high tragedy to ingenious smut in glorious vocal harmony!"

In addition to appearing at folk clubs and festivals, Lynne and Pat also organise and perform themed shows and workshops, music hall evenings (awash with sauce and innuendo), and a special show called 'A Birds' Eye View', which presents songs particularly from a woman's perspective (but which men are invited to attend as well — and learn from!) Audiences need to be robust as their humour has been known to cause side-splitting injuries. They both, however, include emergency first aid amongst their many qualifications.
