Thursday 27 June

Folk Train: Nelson Peach


This experienced Combo is an integral part of our local folk scene and are known by many for their sensitive arrangements and extensive use of a range of instruments for accompaniment and enhancing of songs. Their material is mainly drawn from the rich heritage of the British Isles but they also mix in some contemporary folk songs and American versions of traditional songs. This will be an evening of great folk music which can be enjoyed by all.

 

Travel on the 18.59 from Piccadilly (arriving at the Club about 7.30). Return on the 21.48 from Glossop.

Thursday July 11

Record Club

USA 1969

8 - 11 pm

Free Admission


With the focus of our 1967 and 1968 sessions being primarily on UK music, this time we turn our attention to the USA, taking in tracks from the incendiary debuts by The Stooges and MC5 among others. From Detroit to Woodstock to Altamont, change was definitely in the air. We’ll also feature a few tracks by British artists under the influence of American soul, country and blues, who went so far as to record over there, resulting in some of their best work.

And it’s a Brit abroad that gives us our featured album – Dusty Springfield’s ‘Dusty In Memphis’, recorded in Memphis and New York after signing to Atlantic Records in 1968. Surprisingly, the album saw no chart action in the UK, and only just scraped into the Billboard 100 in the USA. But, as with so many albums that flopped at the time, it’s reputation grew, and is now regarded as a classic, and Dusty’s definitive album.

Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm. See you there!
