Tuesday

            THE CONCERT ON SUNDAY 19 MAY IS CANCELLED.  

THERE IS CURRENTLY NO ELECTRICITY OR WATER SUPPLY AT THE VENUE DUE TO A SMALL ROOF FALL (occurred on the evening of Tuesday 14 May) OVER THE TOILETS AND BAR.  BUILDERS ARE STARTING REPAIRS ON MONDAY 20 MAY.  ALL SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK well in time for our next concert on Thursday 6 June (Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys).

APOLOGIES TO ALL CONCERNED.  All persons involved in the sadly now not happening concert on Sunday are currently being contacted.  This would have been the final tour of Sara Grey and Keiron Means so we are particularly fed up about it!  We have been unable to find an alternative venue but we have spent the last 24 hours trying to find one.

One of our favourite performers at our Lincoln venue, a man-with-a-guitar who we decided to share with Faldingworth.  Gentle, funny and wise...always a delight.

First seen at Warwick Festival this summer, a trio of charming ladies, with funny, sad, delightful songs and harmonies...with just a touch of female emancipation!!...they sung in the pouring rain and wind and kept their audience...what better accolade?

Had them before....and would have them again.  An excellent duo on guitar and fiddle with a very entertaining set of songs and reminiscences.  A good representation of where the Canadian folk scene is now, we are fortunate to have them as part of their third UK tour.

Tom is a Geordie fiddler and singer who has been around a very long time and if you do festivals you might well have heard him somewhere, sometime.  He has a lovely litling soft baritone and a great stage presence and accompanies himself very sweetly on the fiddle.  David Newey is a great player and definitely gilds the lilly!

AND AS USUSAL A CHRISTMAS 2019 CONCERT IS BEING NEGOTIATED......

You might want to know why we booked these artists…./more about theses artists, so here goes….

WE NEVER BOOK ARTISTS WITHOUT SEEING THEM PERFORM LIVE FIRST….

...we are looking for quality of musicianship and empathy with the audience….however much we love some artists, we have to believe our audience will too or else we know we can't sell them….

…we believe in giving a varied programme of content and artists, mainly showcasing folk music but interspersing that with some blues and roots.  Our programme reflects a balance between returning artists at audience requests and new artists that have not previously performed at Faldingworth.

Again....well they are just a fabulous show....to be recommended for all those who are feeling a bit down or low on energy.  You are guaranteed to leave the concert feeling life is worth living and ten years younger!!  We just love them and so do our audience.  Lovely music and great fun.

COLUM SANDS
Saturday 21 September 2019
There is something about Colum Sands....he seems on first acquaintance such a quiet, sort of an unspectacular performer.  Then his songs, which are really stories start to draw you in ...and you could listen to him all night.  One of my favourites.

DAISY BELL
Saturday 12 October 2019
Three clear worded, very harmonious ladies first seen at Warwick singing in the rain this summer.  I love that they do some musical hall type songs, but every song they sing has words worth listening to.....

MY SWEET PATOUTIE
Saturday 2 November 2019
Seen quite a few times now and even enjoyed by my garage playing DJ son-in-law, who usually doesn't do folk music, we always find them entertaining and the time passes quickly in their presence...not English folk music...but Canadian and who cares anyway?  We first booked them a little hesitantly but happily they have always gone down well.  Definitely a bit different.

TOM McCONVILLE and DAVID NEWEY
Saturday 30 November 2019

Tom was one of the first artists I saw when I was introduced to folk music.  He has played with various artists over the years and knows how to work an audience like an old pro.  I particularly enjoyed his partnership with Pauline Cato.  But this promises to be a good duo and Andy came back from hearing them play together full of praise.
