The Elderlies playing and singing

  Dave Betteridge and Tom Callaghan (vocals, guitars), both seasoned performers on the local scene, joined forces over a decade ago to create THE ELDERLYS, interpreting Everly Brothers’ songs and other music of that era, within a wider musical mix.  Both have been part of previous musical groupings for as long as I’ve been attending folk clubs (Dave was in a trio called The Southern Gents about 25 years ago).  For variety, we’ve invited them to present separate solo sets first, in addition to their polished duo renderings of rock’n’roll nostalgia, etc.  Go off into the nght with a spring in your step!

  Usual Doghouse Guest arrangements:  c.40 mins. of singaround, followed by one or two support acts (t.b.a.).  The exact flow of the remainder, including when any second floor-singer does their bit, will be up to Dave and Tom.  They may choose to each perform their solo slot uninterrupted, or take turns delivering shorter sets (over about one hour).  They’ll round off the evening with c.30 mins. of their typical ELDERLYS material.
  Raffle in the break, with alcohol and (usually) confectionery among the prizes.
  We’ll Pass the Hat for Dave and Tom.
