Hi Folks,

Well the club has once again managed a brilliant start to the coming season and October promises to be equally as good so eyes down, look in and here’s what we have in store for you:

Once again we have five Fridays in October, a bonus week thrown in!! As per usual we have some excellent entertainment lined up so check out the list, fill up your Friday night diaries and get on down to the clubhouse!

Friday 3rd is one of our legendary Singers’ Nights. Don’t be disappointed, these singers nights are normally over-subscribed so do please contact Debby or Derry on 01384 560462 to ensure you get a floor spot, we have a maximum of 14 slots. Alternatively just come and enjoy the talent on display. A great night is guaranteed!

On the 10th we will be welcoming newcomers to the club, the Jaywalkers. This highly talented trio has been very active on the festival scene this summer and I’ve been fortunate enough to catch them several times. Bluegrassy, with a bit of swing and country thrown in would best describe their style. You are in for a real treat from start to finish – simply too good to miss!

Then on the 17th we are hosting Gerry Hallom who will be running a fund raising night. Gerry last came to the club over fifteen years ago, and now makes a very welcome and overdue return for a special night with all the funds raised going to a Homeless Charity. He is known for his interpretations of traditional Australian songs, as well as his own compositions. It promises to be an excellent night and all for a good cause.

This brings us to the 24th and the return of our old friend, raconteur, bon viveur and all round bon oeuf, Pete Kelly. You all know Pete - everybody knows Pete, ……he’s world famous from Tipton to Arizona and he might even bring along his pony! He’s been delighting audiences both at the club, in other local venues and indeed further afield for many years now and long may he continue. An excellent guitarist, gifted songwriter and always welcome at the club.

Finally the 31st is another Singers’ Night. Don’t be disappointed, these singers nights are normally over-subscribed so do please contact Debby or Derry on 01384 560462 to ensure you get a floor spot, we have a maximum of 14 slots. Alternatively just come and enjoy the talent on display. A great night is guaranteed!

Looks like another great month of folky flavoured stuff at the Woodman, so see you there.

Cheers

Rob
