£10.00

with

DAMIEN BARBER AND MIKE WILSON

OR
£8.00

advance booking

Seen here at their previous visit to Lymm - this time we'll be at the Spread Eagle!




Residents' Support was from Nick & Lin, Stewart, Janice (assisted by Bernard) and Nelson Peach (minus Lesley!), with Bernard providing our pre-raffle-ite spot.

A very well-attended concert, and the lads didn't disappoint!! Plenty of choruses to join in with, and lots of witty banter in between! The only problem was having to obey the clock and go home...

Singers Night BIG Spot

    with
John Barber

Tonight sees another of our 'Big Spot' offerings - performers being asked to do an extended spot after the beer break on a Singers' Night.

This time it's the turn of John Barber...!!


As ever, our singers, poets and musicians dug deep and produced great stuff - good to see visitors Pen and Pete who just happened to be floating by on the Bridgewater Canal!

John always impresses with his fluid guitar style (strongly influenced by Nic Jones), and his singing is easy on the ear... his choice of material is interesting and varied.

Stewart Lever commented on our Facebook page: "I thoroughly enjoyed John Barber's set of songs... and the harmonies from our audience."

 

1 October

£8.00

Miriam Erasmus

OR
£6.00

advance booking


Bernard started us off this evening, followed by Janice, Nick & Lin and Nelson Peach. Our pre-raffle-ite was Monologue John Bartley, who is doing a Big Spot on 28th January 2016...

Needless to say, Mim gave us a lot of joining-in-singy-stuff! It was a warm atmosphere, more a gathering of friends than a concert!

Here's a quote from Mim's Facebook page:

I don't sing to "perform". I sing to create an atmosphere of musical togetherness and joy. Yesterday morning with the memory club, my heart was overflowing as dear souls sang beautiful folk songs buried deep in their memories. Thanks to Bernard Cromarty and everyone who came along to Lymm last night, the songs once again took centre stage with some amazing harmonies. As the song says "What a feeling !" Happy days xxxx

As the end of a perfect evening approached, we were all invited to pick up our instruments to join in with Umgeni - though most drew the line at the ululating!!

Their new album, "Another Man's Shoes", was produced by none other than the writer of the title track, Clive Gregson, who also appears in some of the tracks!
