Saturday 27th September 2014 @ 7.15pm:

Ken Nicol & Becky Mills

(www.kennicolmusic.com) (www.beckymills.co.uk)

At: Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road GRAYSHOTT, Nr. Hindhead, Surrey GU26 6TZ

This is not so much a War of The Roses, more a Tour of The Roses and a coming together of two gifted musical talents from either side of The Pennines. Representing the red Rose of Lancashire, Ken Nicol is a former member of Steeleye Span and The Albion Band. He has played alongside all of the greats; Martin Carthy, Ralph McTell, Maddy Prior and Ashley Hutchings. All of them recognise and endorse his talents as a singer, guitarist and song writer. Ken's playing style ranges from Blues to Rock, effortlessly taking in Ragtime, Folk, Jazz and so much more along the way. He has also patented his own guitar design.

The white Rose of Yorkshire is represented by Becky Mills, who is a beautiful singer and guitar player. She has made a name for herself as a member of Waking The Witch but more recently as an accomplished solo performer. Her solo album entitled "Dandelion" is excellent and showcases her voice and playing to great effect but don't be taken in by her melodic tunes and beautiful vocals because she tackles some serious issues in her darker songs.

Earlier this year Ken and Becky released their album which is aptly named "Together at Last". It features many songs that they have written together, as well as some individual efforts and a couple of covers. Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You" and James Taylor's "One Woman Man" are both given the stylish Nicol and Mills treatment on the album.

Come on down to Grayshott Village Hall to see two genuinely talented live performers.  

 

Support: David O'Brien and Friends;

We are really chuffed to welcome David back to Grayshott Folk Club for his third visit. We've always done what we can to support local musicians and as David comes from just down the hill in Haslemere, we think he just about qualifies as a local. David is a gifted singer/songwriter and guitarist who performs as a member of a band or as a solo musician. Tonight he will be joined by Frances MacNamara on Fiddle and possibly other local itinerent musicians who together will perform music which has strong Irish and Jewish influences. They call it "Jirish Folk". Come and hear what it's all about. You won't be disappointed.

Tickets: Adults £12, Children under 16, £6
