Another great night on Thursday with an appreciative audience enjoyed a committed and thoughtful performance by Maggie Holland.

This was helped by some truly outstanding floor spots the included:-

* Bob Walser the professional American singer and melodeon player came to us straight from Heathrow airport en route for Aberdeen and was really brilliant

* Robb Johnson one of Britain's leading songwriters was on fine form as well and Maggie had him join her for a duo version of his fine song Overnight as an encore

* Marilyn Bennett lead singer with The Other Band was singing like an angel.

* Will Duke(concertina), Derrick Hughes(Northumbrian pipes and whistle) and Ian Chisholm(guitar) who played some fine sets of tunes together.

Next Thursday -

Jan 22nd * £5.00 * BILL PRINCE
The debut in Lewes of a very engaging singer with a crisp and adventurous guitar style. Traditional and own songs.
