Newsletter - July 2018

29 Dec 2018

What a fabulous month we had in June ‘eh! Fantastic performances from our own local lad Eddy Morton & his Friends, followed the ever popular BarlowCree and then Scolds Bridle and finally concluding in style tonight with a singers night. Oh what fun we had! Anyway, July is now just around the corner and as usual it’s a short month for Woodman club goers but entertaining nonetheless, so without further ado, here goes:-

Friday 6th July sees the very welcome return of Landermason to the club for their second visit. Landermason are vocal and multi-instrumentalist Fiona Lander and Paul Mason on vocals and guitar. They have developed a unique sound which displays a high degree of virtuosity and with which they combine both traditional and contemporary folk with jazz and other musical styles. They have so far released 5 CD’s and have appeared on BBC radios 2, 3 and 4. Now getting increasingly known on the folk and festival circuit, and last with us back in May ’16 so not to be missed I reckon!

The following week, the 13th, as always we will be closed because the Woodman tends to move almost lock, stock and instruments to the world famous spectacular that is BROMSGROVE FOLK FESTIVAL! See you there I hope.

Friday the 20th sees our final club night of the season as we look forward to a summer break of festivals, holidays, barbecues and whatever else floats our collective boats so, to take us out into the summer break in true (North Eastern) Gallic style we bring you one of the club favourites, Flossie Malavialle. As most of you will know Flossie has been a club regular for many years now and certainly enjoys coming to the club as much as we love to have her…….she never quite knows what to expect from the Woodman audience, and we never disappoint her! With a delightful voice and her trusty Gibson guitar she will no doubt refer to her à la carte song list and bring us some chansons d’amour with a dash of savoir-faire to enhance our joie de vivre!! Welcome back Flossie.

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 14th! Till then, Cheers and have a good break……
