Subject: West country folk clubs & gigs?
From: Becks
Date: 15 Apr 09 - 02:13 PM

I have just been in Somerset and surrounding areas for the Lands End Trial (endurance hill climbing for road cars) and while I was there managed to get myself a couple of gigs in Bristol and near Taunton.

I was hoping to make a holiday of it and visit other folk clubs while I was there. So if anyone can suggest any that I can visit for singarounds and even a floor spot or two if possible, it would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone would consider me for a support slot anywhere to I would be very greatful!

I don't normally ask for gigs (I feel a little cheeky!) but I usually visit clubs and take part in singarounds and sessions and usually get offered a gig that way. But seeing as I am in North Yorkshire that is a little hard to do from up here!

The Bristol and Taunton venues are very flexible as to when I visit so I can work around other venues and make the most of my trip.
I was hoping to do it sometime in the early Autumn as I will have my album finished by then.

I have a website & myspace site for anyone who wants to hear some samples.

if it's not on cresby.com tell me about it. And check-out the links as well.

Bristol is a good area for sessions and SAR. Bath as well.

For Devon, visit the web sites of Flaxey Green, Devon Folk, and Harberton Folk. For Somerset see Tony Watt's acoustic calendar.

Wadebridge BH w/e in August doesn't seem to have any plans for 2009. but keep an eye on it. Folknews Kernow (see my list of lists) has recently changed to a PDF version to avoid problems it had.
