Cambo Harvest Supper Ceilidh – 12th Oct

Ned Pearson – Cambo fiddler

Autumn is a lovely time of year – not least because it’s the season for village dances!

Kirkwhelpington was the first Saturday in September – and now we have Cambo on Saturday 12th October with Kathy Anderson on piano. It’s a family dance starting at 6pm in the village hall (here: tickets are £10/£5 (children) and the facebook event has more details:

Playing at Cambo is a bit special – because it’s where renowned fiddler Ned Pearson played for dances almost a century ago. Field recordings of his music (from the 1950’s) are in the British Library

Update: Now sold out – wait list on returns

The ever popular annual village night out returns as anticipated & expected on the 30th December – “Old Year’s Night” is an evening of Northumbrian Music, Songs & Stories that continues to feature some of the best of local performers. Supper will be a Bring and Share affair to start the evening and then we’ll get going with the entertainment as soon as people have eaten and we can clear a little space.

I’ll be hosting and throwing in a few tunes and will be able to introduce yet another fine of talent who have been persuaded to come and perform this year:

  • Singer, Storyteller & Musician Johnny Handle – a simply masterful entertainer
  • Andy May – nothing short of a musical genius on the pipes
  • As local & as popular as can be; singer and storyteller Graham Dick

Tickets are just £7 and everything starts at 7.30pm in Wall Village Hall. Contact me if you’d like more information / tickets. (Advance booking is essential!)
