Jon Brindley and Feet In Mouths!

Jon Brindley played Swinton Folk Club on the 4th November and gave us all a night to remember. His musicianship was magical and the variety of material was amazing.  Those of us lucky enough to share the experience will be only too happy to know that he will be entertaining us again towards the back end of next year.  Can't wait.

In other news, Feet In Mouths will be playing the club on Monday 2nd December. They're always a joy to watch and listen to, so this is definitely one you don't want to miss. 

The event will be ticket only, so book now to avoid disappointment! Tickets are £3 for club members, and £4 for non-members. To book, email or ring Ged on 01942 811527. 

See you on December 2nd!

Last Monday's gig with Marian Bradfield proved a resounding success.  Thank you for all your positive comments and your contribution to the atmosphere of the evening.
Many of you appreciated the self pennned songs introduced by a soft Irish lilt giving you an insight into her reasons for writing about moments in her life. We're glad to announce that we can look forward to seeing Marion again in 2014. 
This Monday (10th) is a singers night - it would be great if you could support Bill & Allan who are stepping in for Ged who is away on a course (work does get in the way of Life!)
The next Special night to book in your diary is the John Collinge Shanty Night on 24th June. Come and bring your sea related songs  - or perhaps Pirate poems?
The next Guest will be Geoff Higginbottom - another great night with the man with the big voice and personality.  Not to be missed.
The Shanty Night and Geoff's gig will NOT be ticket only events, but Anthony John Clarke's gig on 7th October will be: tickets for AJC's performance will be available from the beginning of August.

We also have another new guest confirmed: John Kelly will be playing the Club on 5th August.

Hope to see you at one or all of these - in the meantime, enjoy the summer weather!

And A Happy New Year!

A belated Happy New Year to from all at Swinton Folk Club!

Our Christmas Party was a great evening, enjoyed by all, and this was down to everyone who attended, either performers, suppliers of the wonderful array of food and the great atmosphere generated by the whole company.  It's the people, as well as the music, that make the Club what it is.
