OUR NEXT DATE IS FRIDAY 5 OCTOBER
Our main guests on October 5 are Fiona Larcombe and Terry Mann, a great duo who performed for us two years ago.They are replacing the Foxglove Trio who, unfortunately, have had to cancel. Fiona is an accomplished singer of traditional songs and a fine fiddle player. Terry Mann is an expert accompanist on guitar, banjo and melodeon. In his other life, Terry is a classical composer and a musical instrument maker. The variety of the couple’s repertoire and their informative, light-hearted introductions made a real impact on our audience when they came to play for us before. You can hear some of their music at https://terryandfiona.bandcamp.com
Our Featured guest is Peter Kerr – who came to play a floor spot for us in the summer.Peter chooses mainly chorus songs which people can join in with – something Hadleigh audiences are always happy to do. Peter may bring some friends – that is other musicians – to play with him.
All in all, you can be sure of a jolly night.
Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Music Nights are normally held on the first Friday of the month – from September to July at the Ansell Centre, Market Place, Hadleigh IP7 5DU.
We feature folk music in the broadest sense of the word. In addition to “traditional” and “contemporary” folk music, you can expect to hear hints of pop, country, jazz or even classical music.
Our doors open at 7.45 and the music starts at 8 o’clock.
Our 2017-2018 programme is now complete. Check here.
Each evening starts with a number of “Floor spots” – where anyone can come
along and perform: singing songs or playing an instrumental. In practice, it’s
advisable for would-be performers to contact us in advance to book a spot.
Next, after a short break, is our Featured Guest: a 30-minute performance from an
individual or group.
Finally, after another short break, our Main guest finishes the evening with a
60-minute performance. Our evenings finish around 10.30.
Entry price is £5.00. (£2.00 for under 16s)
There is no bar at the Ansell Centre, but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.
There is plenty of free parking within easy walking distance of the venue.
