Mandy Murray & Aisling Murray, Lewes Saturday Folk Club Saturday 7th. May 8:00 - 11.00 p.m. Elephant & Castle, Lewes, East Sussex BN7 2DJ www.lewessaturdayfolkclub.org Mandy Murray is an all-Ireland champion Anglo concertina player and fine singer. Her daughter Aisling Murray is also a delightful concertina player and intelligent, sensitive singer of mainly Irish traditional songs. Mandy runs wonderful Irish music sessions in Brighton which attract top local and visiting musicians. She is featured on the definitive set of Anglo concertina CDs 'Anglo International'. Mandy and Aisling will give us two forty-five minutes spots and the rest of the evening is filled by members of the audience performing a song or tune if they wish. Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in. We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you £5 off an evening when admission is £5 or more. It's £6 tonight. Bring instruments to join in some Irish tunes as well.
Hi everyone, some new recordings to be announced: Bold Fisherman - one of my favourite Sussex sing-along song On Raglan Road - from the repertoire of Luke Kelly and Van Morrison Black Nag and 3/4 version of "Star of the County Down" (instrumental) . Thanks go to to Adrian for pointing me to The Black Nag (Playford) and suggesting to waltz out the Irish tune as played in the same key of Dmin (which changed my arrangement a lot; will record the original Amin version, or the song, later).
