Entry fee $10
Our Guests for August 18th will be
Tony Hillyard and Victoria Vigenser share a love of lyrical music, from contemporary compositions to traditional folk song. They are recognised for their uncanny vocal blend, and performances that are liberally laced with strong, emotional melodies and lyrics.
Tony’s velvety vocals and fingerstyle guitar accompaniment guarantee beautiful layers of melody, while Vic plays guitar, bodhran or dulcimer, and adds her spell-binding voice to their special brand of harmony.
Recently Reverie recorded 11 of their favourite traditional and contemporary tracks, all in one live, intimate recording session. The duo’s debut album BLOOD MEMORIES will be available at the club on a special edition USB which contains a film of the recording session, lyrics and extras.
The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guests. We welcome new performers. See Alistair at the door before the 8 p.m. start if you would like to perform.
See you there,
Graham, Linda and Jennifer
