Saturday 2nd May 2015 @ 7.30pm

The Patsy Reid Band + Gareth Lee & Annie Baylis

At: Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road,

GRAYSHOTT, Nr. Hindhead, Surrey GU26 6TZ

Patsy was shortlisted for The Spiral Earth Musician of The Year Award 2015 and is a brilliant Fiddle player who is a former member of top Scottish Folk band Breabach. Although classically trained she has taken the Folk route and played alongside the greats of contemporary Folk music.

However, there was always a part of Patsy that felt unfulfilled until she started giving expression to her own thoughts and ideas and performing her own compositions. As a result of this desire, The Patsy Reid Band was formed and they have gone from strength to strength, appearing at Celtic Connections in Glasgow in both 2014 and 2015.

" A year after launching her third solo album The Brightest Path, right here at the festival, Reid and her four-piece band displayed all the benefits of 12 months' playing-in for its blend of tunes and songs, with a performance that was drumtight and sweetly subtle in all the right places"

                                                     Sue Wilson, The Scotsman

 "Perthshire based fiddler Patsy Reid opened proceedings with a fine set of tunes from a tightly knit band that produced a sound with a retro-progressive feel.......with mesmerizing interplay between drummer Signy Jakobsdttir and bassist Ben Nicholls"

 

                                                                            The Herald

 

Patsy has promised to increase the song count for her visit to Grayshott where our audiences are gaining a reputation for being both attentive and warmly appreciative of our visiting musicians.

 

Support: Gareth Lee & Annie Baylis

Whilst Patsy and her band are travelling down from one end of the UK, Gareth and Annie are travelling up from Cornwall for this particular gig. We like to think we can spot potential future Folk stars here at Grayshott and believe that Gareth and Annie have something special to offer; he is a fine guitar player with a great voice and she plays the fiddle and sings too.

 

We hope you will join us and make all our players' long journeys worthwhile.

They won't disappoint.........
