The Poppy and Pint, Pierrepont Road,
Lady Bay, West Bridgford, Nottingham.
We had a terrific opening night at the Poppy on May 15th thanks to a sell-out concert by our special guests, Cupola, who performed two excellent sets of music and songs from Britain and Europe. Doug Eunson, Sarah Matthews and Oli Matthews played a lovely mix of traditional, contemporary and self-written tunes on melodeons, hurdy-gurdy, fiddle, clarinet and soprano saxophone – a wonderful range of material and talents! Sarah’s performance of Dave Sudbury’s ‘King of Rome’ was spellbinding.
