Our next guest Ian Bruce, 19th May. Born in Glasgow, Scotland. Singer-songwriter Ian began an early career singing in folk clubs with his brother Fraser. They recorded three albums together before Ian gradually moved into solo work, although he continued to hold down his day job as a draughtsman at Yarrow Shipbuilders. More below.
(Please see our diary for dates).
In between times we will continue with our weekly singers & musicians nights. So plenty to look forward to.
May Singers & Musicians Nights 2nd ~ 9th ~ 23rd ~ 30th
Your chance to shine and show us how it's done.
Monroes revenge is a British group consisting of Dave Plane (guitar, vocals), Richard Partridge (fiddle, vocals), Dick Embery (double bass) and Joe Hymas (mandolin, vocals) that play some scintillating bluegrass, comparable with many of the American bands. They are described by the Maverick Festival as British bluegrass at its best.
Monroe's Revenge was a name first used by Roger Blackbourn in a scratch band put together with mandolinist Randy Gambil for the Ash County Fiddlers' Convention, North Carolina, in 1987. Since then the band has gone through many incarnations, but the current line-up, which has been together since 2003, has taken the band from strength to strength.
Singers nights at the Orpington Folk Club are an opportunity for singers and musicians to get together to perform their songs and or tunes to an audience. Traditional, contemporary and blues music can all be heard on any one night. The Social Club is an excellent space to play in and the bar prices are so reasonable.
So what's stopping you from giving it a go? See you there?
