Music Night a great success

Many claim that it was the best Music Night we've organised yet!!! Enthusiastic guests packed the Museum on Saturday April 22 to enjoy a high-energy evening of first-class folk music. The event raised much-needed funds for the Museum.

The great line-up included:

Paul Downes - Recognised as one of the finest guitarists on the folk scene. Eight albums with bands, three highly acclaimed solo albums and over one hundred and fifty session credits have still left time for Paul to play every concert venue, theatre and festival in Britain, plus many tours in the USA and Europe with, among others, Pete Seeger. "Wonderful...Magnificent throughout," said Melody Maker.

Terry Masterson has been a giant of the local folk scene for over three decades. His wonderful ballad singing will leave you in no doubt why.

Alan White - While he was resident of the famous Boggery Folk Club in Birmingham it was Alan who gave Jasper Carrott his first break and they remain close friends. Alan toured the folk circuit extensively with his riotous comedy act and recorded two albums. A rare chance to see him performing locally.

Among the other artists appearing were the multi-instrumental duo Ray Chandler & Barry Ruffell, Pete Cartlidge & Stuart Reed of The Taverners.

Special thanks to the musicians and to our generous sponsors:
  • Harveys Breweries
  • Courage Breweries
  • Kitchen Cafe, 93 Trafalgar Street.
Everyone's been asking when we hope to have the next one!
