Sally Barker and Glenn Hughes
On Friday 4 December, at 8.30 pm Sally Barker will be at the White Horse Inn, Trowse presenting the Joni Mitchell Project. This is a personal tribute to the very much admired earlier recordings of Joni Mitchell.
Sally (whose voice is often compared to Joni’s) is a member of female folk group The Poozies and during her career has supported both Bob Dylan and Richard Thompson. For the Joni Mitchell Project she is accompanied by Glenn Hughes on keyboard and dulcimer. Tickets £8 (£5 members), check availability through the email link on the ‘About the Club’ page.
The singaround on 27 November will be in the upstairs room at the White Horse Inn. This jam session is open to all, whether to listen, sing or play.
Bob Fox is one of the most popular and best loved performers on the world folk stage and after more than three decades remains at the very top of his game. Nominated as BBC Radio 2 Best Folk Singer in 2003 and 2004 , in 2006 Bob was commissioned to perform one of the six new BBC Radio Ballads. In 2008, Bob embarked on an ambitious project with former duo partner Stu Luckley to re-record both of their original vinyl albums for a 2 CD set called “THIRTY YEARS ON” that they produced for their equally ambitious re-union tour which took place in the autumn, taking in many of the places that they played in the 70s and finishing at the highly prestigious Sage Concert Hall on the banks of the Tyne in Gateshead. The performances they produced on the tour and the quality of the CD brought them a nomination in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2009 as ‘Best Duo’.
Bob is counted by Vin Garbutt as ‘one of the truly great voices from the North East with musicianship second to none’. Check for availability of tickets by email through ‘About the club’ page: £8 (£5 members).
