Collaborations Galore

Tom and Lynda Degney

A dozen performers, more than twice that number in the room, the tables overflowing with choccies – and a birthday girl.

The chocolates were courtesy of Lynda Degney, who was celebrating her birthday, and the club responded in the customary fashion singing a rousing “Happy Birthday” song and presenting her with… you’ve guessed it… a box of chocolates!

Tom Degney and Richard Eastwood

Lynda, of course, is one of Ruthin AllStyles’ longest-serving stalwarts and this week she and Tom got the evening underway with what was the first of many collaborations.

Armed variously with a guitar, mandolin or the dobro, Tom was by far the busiest, accompanying Richard Ruthin and Richard Eastwood during their respective sets. Richard, in turn, joined his wife Wendy Eastwood for some ABꓭA themed duets.

The rest of us flew solo, with some fine musical aerobatics from Joe Lyon, Jim Cole, Chris Birchall, Peter Leslie and Neil Martin. And, unusually of late, there was time for a second spot each performer after the break.

Cath Bryan and Pete Kirkham

Then for the evening’s finale, Cath Bryan and Pete Kirkham hooked-up for a lovely version of the Chris de Burgh song “Some Things Never Change”.

One thing that really doesn’t ever change, is the fact that however busy or relatively quiet it is, we are always assured of a great evening’s entertainment in the function room at The Feathers.

Tonight’s roll call: Lynda and Tom Degney, Joe Lyon, Jim Cole, Chris Birchall, Peter Leslie, Wendy and Richard Eastwood, Richard Ruthin, Neil Martin, Pete Kirkham and Cath Bryan.
