WOW!! What a fantastic month June was at the club – still
reeling from fantastic performances from Rex & Miranda and of course Brooks
Williams, and we still have a singers night to go yet! Phew.
Anyway, July is now just around the corner - (where on earth is this year going??) - and as usual it’s a short month for Woodman goers but entertaining nonetheless, so without further ado, here goes :-
Friday July 4th brings us a welcome return to the club of John Richards but in the unfamiliar guise of The John Richards Small Band. John has now decided that future gigs will be comprised of the trio of himself, his daughter Emma and of course Robin Tudor. This promises to be a very entertaining, tight little unit and I’m sure you can expect to hear most of his best songs but probably with a slightly different twist. Sounds interesting!
On the 11th of July the club will be CLOSED as we will all be making merry down at The Bowling Green for the Bromsgrove Folk Festival.
In the words of our dear old friend Pete Brown, “Yes it’s that time of year again when the famous, the infamous, the good, the bad and the Woodman Folk Club, congregate at The Bowling Green, Shaw Lane, Stoke Prior, near Bromsgrove. Come and join us there and enjoy the festival, the singing and the camaraderie!” He’ll be there in spirit, I’m sure.
Then finally for this half of the year, the 18th will bring us the welcome return of Bev Pegg. Bev was with us last June and brought the house down with his peculiarly Black Country brand of humour and excellent music.
Bev released his most recent album, "Folk Songs from a Cradley Bloke" during October 2012. Most of the 14 tracks are related to Bev's Black Country roots together with a few traditional numbers. From skiffle, to folk and country to jazz, Bev’s been there. Look forward to a superb night.
That will be all folks so enjoy the summer break and we’ll see you all again when you roll up in your droves to renew your memberships on September the 5th! Till then, Cheers………………
