Folk Day Online Showcase Concert

Featuring John Kirkpatrick!

Sunday 21st March 2021, from 2pm.

We are delighted to invite you to join us for our Folk Day showcase concert which will take place over Zoom on March 21st 2021. The afternoon will feature 'live' and pre-recorded short sets of songs and tunes from some of the artists we've missed since we had to cancel last year's events.

Here's the planned running order for the showcase:

2.00pm Introduction and welcome
2.05 Stonesthrow - Derby's newest folk trio, featuring Tony Fowkes with Steve & Julie Wigley.
2.15 Jim Hellewell - Poppy friend and neighbour and a lively harmonica player!
2.25Phil Langran Band - and one solo from Phil. A treat!
2.35Ian Price - Poppy's very own. A thoughtful unaccompanied singer.
2.45Wil Walker & Jenny Bell - Pairing Wil's excellent fiddle playing with Jenny's singing and songwriting talents.
2.55Special Guest: a feature spot from John Kirkpatrick, live from home. Originally pencilled in to give us a full concert this year, the perpetually cheerful and incredibly talented musician will be giving us a flavour of what we've missed.
(3.15Announcements)
3.20Terry Maxwell and the Cellotapes - Something bluesy to start the second half. One from Terry and one from the band.
3.30Helen & Chris Morris - lovely Nottingham duo and great supporters of the club.
3.40Steve & Julie Wigley - Julie's prodigious songwriting, and the duo's lovely harmonies, have given Steve & Julie a very busy year, 'Zooming' around the country.
3.50Looma Deconstructed - the hugely popular East Midlands quartet, prevented from playing together at the moment, will be giving us two solos and a duet.
4.00Julie Palmer and Phil Preen - finishing the event our club founders, now living in Somerset, will sing live from their home.
