  Tues. LIVE at The Guide Dog, 8pm:  Guest HAMISH CURRIE

Updated 19th April:  this is PLANNED, but not yet booked, with the venue

PLEASE NOTE:  PARTS OF THE SITE [e.g. branding banners, location page, online Sings] ARE BEING UPDATED SEPARATELY FROM THE 'EVENTS' DIARY, SO WILL SHOW OUT-OF-DATE INFO FOR A WHILE UNTIL THAT GETS SORTED.

OK: to the real business…


  Now based in the Home Counties, where (among other things) he founded and runs the Berkhamsted Campaign for Real Music*, HAMISH used to be musically active round here.  Scots-born performer (read some bio here and get a flavour of his wry humour) delivers contemporary, Trad., and some of his own, songs, sometimes substituting ukulele for guitar, or singing unaccompanied.  "A gentle singer with a twinkle in his eye".  Check out some recordings here.  Bring your voices to join in with choruses!

  We’ll Pass-the-Hat for Hamish [recommended min. £6 per person].  Raffle in the break, with alcohol (and, likely, confectionery) prize(s).  Evening kicks off with a Singaround, then 2 × 45mins. sets from our guest.

  Text 073 8040 1951, or e-mail, about tonight’s event.

*  an ethos we at FOCSLE Music entirely support

  Most months, second Tues. = Singaround at The Dog [38, Earls Rd, Bevois Valley  SO14 6SF], following the calendar pattern of SECOND & FOURTH TUESDAYS.  We go round the room one turn at a time, with others joining in where appropriate.  Bring your favourite songs, tunes, poems, etc.  For THIS month, we’ll hold a full-length Singaround on fourth Tues. [25th]

The shadow of COVID.  Still very much with us, with high cases everywhere, it could cause short-notice cancellation at any time.  Our ‘safe’ figure is case-rates of 75k/million, according to estimates from the Zoe map.
