Hunter Muskett appeared at Orpington Folk Club in the 70's
and I'm glad to say they are still going strong and giging when they can. Tonight is our lucky night as they have slotted us in just before they perform at the New Forest Folk Festival over the weekend of 6 - 8 July 2018.
This is a Brighton based four piece playing accordion, fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and Bodhran.
The band plays Irish, English, Cornish, Scottish, Russian, Klezmer and other traditional folk music. They also have a wide repertoire of songs in all of these styles. Check their web site. Ivan North.
Jimmy Lee (The Runaway Show)
Jimmy came to one of our singers and musicians nights during 2017. He made quite an impression on us performing a few of his songs from his collection of CD's about his life as a child and generally about life as he saw it.
Jimmy also very generously offered around free copies of his CD's to anyone who wanted to hear more of his songs. Not only that he left a few at the door for the benefit of those not present.
On the strength of his perfomance on the night and to the delight of everyone we have booked him for a guest spot tonight.
…A creative ‘genius’!…maverick magazine
‘Jimmy Lee’s songs and life story come together in a show, with Jimmy, his guitar, wonderful songs and narrative linked to projected images that give you a personal insight into one of the most incredible life stories you are ever likely to hear….’There are great stories told in lyrics woven in beautiful melodies.
‘Emotional and uplifting this highly entertaining show will transport you into his extraordinary world full of incredible twists and turns…’
