TOPIC NEWSLETTER NOTES
12 June 2002
Short reminder this: Thursday 13 June 2002 (tomorrow, as I write), it is ...
Damian Barber, Norfolk born (though now more locally based) singing mainly traditional songs from said Norfolk, including many from the pen of the late Peter Bellamy. Plays a mean guitar and concertina. Often to be seen with his Demon Barber roadshow, but solo tonight.
The Following week - 20 June - visit from Friday 13th Folk Club, Harrogate.
27 June - Leon Rosselson.
Attendances have been a bit thin recently - let's make an effort to make our guests feel welcome.

Another short message, not a proper Newsletter. Maybe next week.
Just to say/remind - Thursday 20 June is the Visit from the Friday 13 Folk Club in Harrogate. Basically, it is a singaround with some fresh voices. Do come down if you can - it would be a pity if they can muster more visitors than we can muster home performers.
And Thursday 27 June - Leon Rosselson. Once again, an opportunity to hear one of the unfussiest but accomplished singers (of his own songs) on the circuit. Songs of political and social commitment.
After that, it is Roger Sutcliffe (4 July) and Slide (11 July) - before we basically break up into Singarounds for the summer . See you all there

Sorry - another improper Newsletter. It is five weeks since the last real one!
But just to remind all and sundry, that it is Leon Rosselson this week - Thursday 27 June. Great singer, great songwriter, great commitment; and a great pity it will be if we can't produce a good audience. Be there for 8.30, and you could get a floor spot. Or at least a good seat.
The following week it is the inestimable Roger Sutcliffe. For Blues Artistes everywhere.
And the week after it is Slide - who have provided me with an absolute wealth of information on them and their music, which I will definitely circulate next week. Tom Bliss's band, for those who Know these things.
There you have it. Melborn Hotel, White Abbey Road, Thursday evenings from 8.30 every week. See you there!
