Guest: HEATHER BRADFORD & LEWIS WOOD
Smoky-toned vocalist HEATHER BRADFORD has been in several line-ups, esp. noted for being one third of the late lamented all-female a cappella group Hen Party (with Sarah Morgan & Alison Muir). A long-time Focsle supporter, she brings with her the talents of fiddler LEWIS WOOD. He was Vice-President of the University Folk Society, whose instrumentalists meet most Mondays in "The Doghouse" to play what they've practised in a room on campus earlier that evening. Half of clarinet/fiddle duo Gentile & Wood, he can also be found at some Doghouse Sessions, every fourth Monday, playing along with (or occasionally leading) many other semi-pro musicians in an informal session. Intense energy, and a relaxed bowing technique (reminiscent of Ben Paley), are among his hallmarks.
M.C.: Jon Ellis. Support to include Robbie Williams [the less household-name one], a regular at Woolston & Burseldon F. C.
