In featured spots at the singaround at the Manor Rooms on 27 March, the showcase guest will be John Robinson. Welcomed in folk clubs all over the country as ‘John the Trucker’, he has been chair of the Norwich club for the last four years. Originally from MIddlesbrough, John brings a wealth of songs – of Northern mining disasters and docklands, racing pigeons and allotments, children’s games and bargains with the devil. The Manor Rooms are just up the road from the White Horse Inn. Bring your own refreshments – coffee and tea available. Entry is free and everyone is welcome to come along.
Well established and much respected harmony singers Barrie and Ingrid Temple will be guests at the club on 13 March. Their songs are traditional, with original arrangements and accompaniment by Barrie on English concertina and guitar. They also sing Barrie’s original songs, written in the traditional style, many of which have been recorded by other performers.
