What a fabulous month we had in June ‘eh! Fantastic
performances from our own local lad Pete Boddis, followed by the superb Winter
Wilson and an electric performance from Mumbo jumbo last week, 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 3rd is going to be a little different from usual in that it will be
a showcase night for some of the regular club artistes and also the long awaited
(or dreaded) release of the new CD from Nothing To Prove. The band will be doing
an extended spot and performing most – if not all – of the tracks on the album
but there will still be plenty of time for extended spots from all your
favourite regulars. Best of all, there will be an opportunity to obtain a copy
of the CD, so form an orderly queue if you will………..!
On the 10th 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 17th will bring us the welcome
return of Bev Pegg. Bev was with us last July 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 the11th!
Till then, Cheers………………
