Guest: WOMAN WANTS TALL MAN
Confirming, as at 13:03 today, that this event will go ahead [Paul, who posts this stuff, hasn't checked with the guests, but all else is as sure as anything ever is]
A double dose of Deb and Martin tonight: WOMAN WANTS TALL MAN are Debbie & Martin Ansell from Blandford Forum. They play acoustic guitars, banjo, bouzouki and both of them sing and harmonize. They have toured with John Martyn, Van Morrison, Jools Holland and collaborated with Sally Barker and The Poozies. As well as their own songs, they cover many luminaries, including Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny and Bob Dylan. Find their albums on Bandcamp and YouTube.
Please print off copies of Debbie & Martin’s flyers [note they're meant to be duplexed], and distribute wherever you can. Thanks.
Dose 2 is a visit from the U.S. by DEBRA CHESMAN – a fine, sweet-voiced unaccompanied singer, who ran The Focsle 20 years ago – and Martin, her husband (who also adds harmonies to Debra's songs). Otherwise, usual FOCSLE Music singaround provisions apply (though we'd invite Debra to do a few extra numbers, reflecting the rarity of her attendances): preliminary singaround, raffle in the break. Modest entry charge.
