It's just 3 weeks to the next acoustic music evening at Milton Village Hall. This time it's Blues Night.
Saturday 6 December at 8pm, doors open at 7.30. (Yes, back to Saturday!)
Barebones presents an evening of exquisite acoustic blues music, featuring:
The Pete Harris Trio. Pete will be familiar to some of the older folkies among us as the talented guitarist behind the famed writer of folk operas Mick Ryan. He was always a blueser too, though, and that's where he's been concentrating his efforts more recently. Normally seen out as the Pete Harris Blues Band, a five piece electric set-up, Pete has agreed to play an acoustic set for us with vocalist Jeradine Hume and harmonica player Jon Vaughan. This is such a rare event, there is no video or sound clip of this line-up on the web. However, you can see and hear all three of them together in the electric band here (prepare to be impressed):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ablQND1189I.
The Walker Broad Duo are Andy Broad and Sandy Walker. They started playing as a duo in 2010, but are more often seen as a trio or even quartet these days. Sandy's background is in folk/jazz/blues. Andy is very well known locally as great blues guitarist and singer, but has also established a following in France where he tours most years. Andy is also involved in jazz ventures, so I guess anything could happen. Check them out here - there's a tab at the top that links to videos -
There will also be some excellent surprise artistes performing short sets for your delectation and delight. I can hardly wait!
The usual rules apply, such as they are:* There is no admission charge, no tickets and no bookings.
Looking forward to seeing you there, Milton Village Hall at 8pm on Saturday 6 December. Doors open at 7.30pm.-8<--------
Hope to see you at one or both of these!Andy
