This Thursday – Jon Brindley

Jon Brindley

Jon Brindley

This week we are joined by a highly entertaining cheeky chappie from Wigan, name of Jon Brindley.

This likeable and talented entertainer will be performing a 35 minute Showcase mid way through the evening after an opening round of songs from our regular floor singers.

Jon’s influences include the likes of The Beatles, Dylan, Buffy Sainte Marie, BB King, Richard Thompson, Hendrix, Jethro Tull and Woody Guthrie. Those of you who were at the club when Jon turned up to do a floor spot will know we are in for a fantastic evening’s entertainment.

As is usual on Showcase evenings, Club members will be performing floor spots before and after our guest, providing a broad mix from Folk to Blues to R&B, from Country to Celtic to Charts. So please bring your instruments as usual!

Entrance £1.50 on the door

Road Closure

Those travelling from the Wrexham area will be aware that the Nant-y-Garth Pass is currently closed for tree felling operations.

But worry not... there are two alternative routes that add no extra mileage.

1: Take the Llanarmon yn Ial turning at the Moors Inn crossroads go through the village and then turn left onto the A494 to Ruthin.

2: Continue on the A525 past the Plough Inn. Go straight over the cross roads by the Crown Inn (any diversion signs there will be for lorries and caravans). In another half mile, just after the Llangollen turning on the left, you’ll come to a fork in the road (see picture). This is also signposted Llanarmon-yn-Ial but after taking the right fork, then stay straight ahead to go through Pentrecelyn and Graigfechan and on to Ruthin
