GRAND NEW SEASON OPENING

PLEASE NOTE:
This event
will be at
Lymm Rugby Club!

£9.00

PETE COE

OR
£7.00

advance booking

Pete is celebrating his 70th birthday this year, and has been awarded the EFDSS Gold Badge for 'Outstanding Service to Folk Dance and Song'!








Residents' Support was from Grassroots, Stewart, Nick & Lin, and Nelson Peach, with Bernard providing our pre-raffle-ite spot. We were delighted to see Janice back at the club and singing after rather too long in hospital - long may it continue!

A very well-attended concert, with Pete on top form. Included in his impressive set lists were interestingly different versions of 'Spanish Lady' and 'Shenandoah' as well as his own 'Joseph Baker', and 'The Wizard of Alderley Edge' - the latter being the first song he ever wrote, but this was the recently revised version of the song. Instruments, as ever, were circa 1930 Hohner Club II melodeons in D / G, C / F and Bb / Eb, DADGAD guitar, bouzouki, long neck 5-string banjo and lap dulcimer.

Pete always provides fascinating background information for the songs he sings, and some of tonight's offerings will soon be available on Pete's soon to be released new album.

Seen here in the Sounds of Folk studio in September (did we mention we won an award?!), Gaynor and Paul have been a duo for a little over a year, and are well worth a listen!! October 13th should have seen Whitetop Mountaineers (USA) in Lymm, but the agent made a mess of things and even forgot to tell us... it suits Gaynor and Paul better to play for us on October 6th, so book yer tickets!!
