Well, that’s it for another year, Summer that is.….many
festivals visited and a few pints quaffed and before ye know it it’s Woodman
opening time again, and once again we have an exciting programme for you this
September to kick-start the year off, albeit a slightly later start than usual,
so fewer guests to tell you about, but here goes:
Friday 16th September will be the first 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! Also it will be membership renewal night: only a fiver and you save a pound on every other night at the club. You know it makes sense!
Then on the 23rd we are pleased to welcome Mick Ryan & Paul Downes. Newcomers to the club as a duo – they were due to perform together back in March 2014 but sadly Mick had to cancel. Mick has one of the most distinctive and powerful voices on the folk scene today and if you ever get the chance to see one of his many Folk-Operas, don’t miss it – they are magnificent. Paul is a fantastically gifted guitarist and singer (as he proved on his solo set last time), with a superb pedigree having worked with Phil Beer, The Arizona Smoke Review and many more. Individually they are brilliant – together, even better!
And finally Friday the 30th will be a very special night as we welcome back, from Canada, the fantastic trio that is Red Moon Road. They took the club by storm back in April of last year and we vowed to get them back as soon as we could be fitted into their busy schedule – (which they’ve actually altered to suit us for this gig!!) If you were there, you’ll know what to expect, if not, don’t under any circumstances miss this transatlantic treat.
A cracking start I’m sure you’ll agree so we are looking forward to seeing all the old, (in the nicest possible way), faces back at the club as well as all the lucky folks who’ve yet to find us! The rest of the year is mapped out already – do check the website – and we have a fantastic array of artistes lined up as well as all our talented resident performers so ‘come on down’…..you know you want to!
