second & fourth Tuesdays of each month at The Guide Dog, Bevois Valley,
third & fifth Wednesdays at The Wellington Arms, Freemantle,
and some Fridays at “The First” Gallery, Bitterne, SOUTHAMPTON
30 Aug 2022
NOTE THIS IS AT VARIANCE WITH OUR USUAL TUESDAY-AT-THE-GUIDE-DOG PATTERN. It's also unusual for us to operate on a fifth Tues., and will scratch the fifth Weds. Singaround at The Welly, the next day.
FOCSLE Music welcomes back these husband-&-wife musicians from the eastern seaboard of the USA. Christine Stay and Aidan Quinn are FRICTION FARM, “a modern folk duo of singer-songwriters with thought-provoking, socially-conscious and humorous songs… … inspiration ranging from books to poignant observations on people and nature” [from their own blurb]. Playing acoustic bass, guitar and harmonica, and with spine-tingling duo harmony vocals, they create a great engagement with their audiences. Five CDs to their credit. Interesting lyrics, in our opinion, with an unusual clarity of sound.
Prob. pay-on-the-door, but t.b.d. Buy a raffle ticket for the chance of winning an alcohol (and, usually, a confectionery) prize.
