ACOUSTICS KINGS LYNN SHOW POSTPONED
The Acoustic Strawbs show on Sun 13 May has been postponed.
ZEUS PLAY CROMER "FOLK AT THE PIER" FESTIVAL
At last, another live date for Dave Lambert's Zeus, with cohorts
Graeme Taylor, Jon Davie and Tom Leary (who also plays alongside Ian
Cutler in Feast Of Fiddles). The band was last seen getting a really
great reception at the 2009 40th anniversary celebrations in Twickenham.
Zeus plays on Sunday afternoon (13 May) in a concert which also
features the inimitable Richard Digance. The show opens with
Strawhead, who play "popular music of the olden time" with a great
mixture of keyboard, eccentric instruments and ebullient vocalist
Gregg Butler. (I booked them for my university folk club back in the
late 70s, an excellent band). See
http://www.strawhead.org.uk/albumsales.html for a few tasters of
The Sunday evening gig features Harvey Andrews and the hugely
brilliant Home Service, worth sticking around for as well.
Details of the festival which runs from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th
at: http://www.deckchairproductions.co.uk/fotp.html. Other
attractions include: veterans Wizz Jones, Dave Swarbrick, the new
Albion Band, Oysterband, Edward II and a couple of interesting
pairing - Huw Williams and Maartin Allcock and Kevin Dempsey and Rosie Carson.
