PROGRAMME FOR 2018
January 12 Featured guests - Bearwood
This is a local trio comprising Mandy Shora, Steve Jackson and Colin Bailie. They play guitar, flute and bouzouki and all contribute to the vocals. Their material is a mix of traditional and self penned songs. When they performed at our Christmas party in 2016 they bowled us over with some beautiful harmony singing. It's great to be able to feature a talented local band to kick off 2018.
February 9 Blossom Hill
Over the years Gary and Sherryl Payne have provided us with entertaining evenings under the name of Payne's People. This year they are doing something different. Their revived band, Blossom Hill, which also includes Richard Holland and Ed Armstrong, are going to be our guests. Some of you will already have heard them perform at Boars Bridge Festival. Their material is mainly American including Bluegrass. This should be a lively and fun evening!
March 9 Sally Ironmonger and Brian Carter
Sally is a lady with a great voice that needs no amplification. Husband Brian is a fine guitarist and her accompanist. They write much if their own material, based on their home area in Kent. Their songs include a mix of humour, melancholy and fun. It's 2 years since their last visit so we are pleased to welcome them back to Poppy's - an evening not to miss!
April 13 and May 11 TBA
We are still negotiating guests for one of these evenings and the other will be a singers night. More information when we have it.
