Friday nights at 8.15 pm

at The Royal British Legion, Blandford Forum, DT11 7AD

(unless otherwise stated)

The Legion opens at 7pm - club doors open by 7.45pm (subject to sound checks) Concert starts 8.15pm

Wessex Acoustic welcomes guests as well as members, but please note you all need to sign in as visitors to the Legion on the special Folk Club list which will be at the entrance to the function room. To facilitate the membership/guest licence arrangements, and ensure we have enough seats, it would  be a big help if you  book your tickets ahead,  but you can also just turn up on the night without pre-booking, assuming we are not sold out.

Our next club night is.....

June 22nd  - Mile Roses + Rod Jenkins

 

The wonderfully talented Mile Roses, all hailing from the North East, are probably better known individually.

Kate Bramley is a prolific playwright and theatre director best known for her work with Hull Truck and Badapple Theatre Company. She is also a professional touring musician and songwriter, working with Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies and touring solo.

Edwina Hayes numbers Michael Parkinson and Nanci Griffith among her fans. Her beautifully written songs and charming stage presence have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana.

Simon Haworth is a singer-songwriter from the North of England whose songs have a very traditional flavour. He also spent 6 years touring with Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies until 2004.

Collectively these three superb artistes present a delightful mix of folk and Americana, with a touch of Bluegrass now and again.

 

Supporting The Mile Roses we welcome back our own Rod Jenkins with his mellow voice and smooth Americana favourites.
