Guests: CANCELLED Mitchell & Vincent
TONIGHT’S EVENT POSTPONED pending rescheduling (to be hoped later this year). A suggested date is August 26th, but we're not adding that to the formal diary, until we hear if official advice extends the 70+-ers' stay-at-home period.
This page is where we’ll post updates first. Also, in case they don’t inform us(!), you can check whether the The Guide Dog itself is open or closed on its Facebook page.
GRAHAM VINCENT (fiddle, vocal) & DAVID MITCHELL (guitar) do mostly Trad. material, but with exceptional fluidity, understated energy, interplay and intensity. I saw them at Bridport Folk Festival last summer, and from the first (merely mic.-testing) fiddle flourishes I could tell I was in for a treat, and so will YOU be. On the scene for a while now, and unaccountably still relatively beneath the radar (though they HAVE played at Glasto, and have three CDs under their belt), this established duo from the mid West Country, play instruments they’ve each made themselves.
I know most music blurbs say it, but regular readers will know I’m not given to such clichéd hyperbole: you REALLY shouldn't miss this!
Singaround, or floor-singers in the hour or so before the main act. Pass-the-Hat collection for the musicans. Raffle, with wine (as minimum) and a confectionery option as prizes.
