Latest news, reviews and pictures…
As you can tell from listening to these soundbites, there was plenty of diversity in the music played this week.
We had the Searchers and the Kinks from Joe Lyon, some Cohen and Christy Moore from Chris and some Cornish folkie goodness from Glyn Hudson.
We were one Harry short of a Tom, Dick and Harry band this week, so Tom took us instrumentally down “The Road to Dent” before teaming up with Lynda for some “Bluegrass Music”, and Richard sang about “Little Old Wine Drinking Me” whilst admitting he doesn’t really like the stuff.
Sweeney was yearning for a “Mercedes Benz”, Joplin style, and young Harri Owen was content with a “Wagon Wheel” courtesy of the Old Crow Medicine Show.
We welcomed back two occasional visitors this week. Brandon Ridley was over from Sunny Rhyl to provide a couple of Bob Dylan classics as well as one of his own compositions.
And from The Oak Folk Club at Hendre, Dave Hytch went trans-Atlantic with “Tulsa Time” and “New York City’s Killing Me”.
During the second half of the evening Dave treated us to “Mandolin Man” and was joined on stage by our own mandolin man, Tom Degney.
The finale spot this week fell to Penni Neale. Having already treated us to Willy Nelson’s “Crazy”, Beth Nielsen Chapman’s “Seven Shades of Blue” and the jazz standard, “Misty”, Penni rounded off what had been a lovely evening of music with a beautiful version of “Stairway to Heaven”.
More of the same next week folks…
