Hi Folks, 

First of all congratulations to Tim Judson and Becca on their engagement.
We wish them well and look forward to some more magic music the like of which we enjoyed last Friday.

Next month to get us off on the right note (sorry!) it’s Clive Carroll on the 1st.
Clive is an international star on guitar and banjo who has toured the world with Tommy Emmanuel and John Renbourn. Do not miss what will be an extraordinary musical experience. You will be impressed, amazed and thoroughly entertained! 

On the 8th of March come along to see and hear the man who has been a favourite at the club since he first appeared here, Anthony John Clarke. We say he needs no write up and he doesn’t but, just in case, for those who have not seen him before, you’ll enjoy his witty stories and comments and his relaxed style. We may hear self-penned songs such as, ‘Tuesday Night is Always Karaoke’, ‘The Broken Years’, and ‘The Only Life Gloria Knows’.

This month seems to be packed with all the artists I like. On 15th March it’s Stool Pigeon, re-scheduled after they were ‘snowed off’. They will give us an evening of riotously funny original songs, monologues and anecdotes. Be prepared to laugh so much it hurts!! Bob Gessey and John Charnock are at the top of the game when it comes to Music Hall type parody. Don't miss them!!!

Finally for the month on the 22nd because the club is closed on Good Friday, we have Fil Campbell & Tom McFarland. Fil Campbell is an Irish singer from Co. Fermanagh who mixes traditional and contemporary Irish songs with her own compositions. 

It has been ten years since they were last at the club! This is what I said then, “Yes, Fil was all of these at the Woodman on Friday night. I’m glad I didn’t miss such a wonderful evening that was packed with delightful songs from Fil and augmented by exacting percussion from husband Tom McFarland. We could have all stayed and listened all night and I think they would have played all night except they had to travel to Stranraer the next day!”

So, closed on Good Friday but open again on 5th April for Singers’ Night. Look forward later in April to Boo Hewerdine.

Keep singing,
Pete
