Our Guests for June 16th will be
Scallywag consists of three very well know folk performers: Jean Reid, Andrea Reid and Ian Bartlett
Jean has been celebrated on the folk scene for over 40 years as a fine exponent of British Traditional music.
Daughter Andrea has been performing with her mum for much of her life and is a formidable talent in her own right.
Ian's skills as a piper and bodhran player are legendary and both he and Jean are members of the renowned vocal group SuperSheep.
Instruments in the mix include guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, whistles, harmonica, bodhran and Northumbrian and Scottish smallpipes.
So expect tunes, trad. songs, originals and harmonies and above all, a fun night in the company of Scallywag!
But wait there’s more: Bring your instruments and voices if you want to join a final half hour jam session at the end of the evening.
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 Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there well before the 8pm start as there are limited places.
See you there,
Graham, Linda and Jennifer
