Jan 9th       ROBB JOHNSON + floor spots          £8 adv
                        
Robb Johnson is now widely recognised as one of the finest songwriters working in the UK today. His songs feature in the repertoires of a wide variety of musicians, from folk legend Roy Bailey to acclaimed cabaret diva Barb Jungr, & he enjoys a similarly diverse spectrum of critical acclaim – "a modern-day Dostoyevsky" said the US's Dirty Linen, Mojo made the double CD Gentle Men Folk Album Of The Month, while The Daily Telegraph made it their Folk Album of the Year. He has played pubs, clubs, pavements, pickets & benefits, arts centres & festivals, local radio, BBC Radio 3 & 4, Belgian Radio 1, Nicaraguan TV & Channel 4, the Albert Hole in Bristol &, as part of Roy Bailey's 1998 concert, the Albert Hall in London. In February 2006 Robb appeared at the Barbican as part of the prestigious BBC "Folk Britannia" series, where "for the encore, Robb Johnson leads all the artists (and the audience) in the World War I song ('Hanging On The Old Barbed Wire')" (BBC Folk Britannia website) in a concert that was screened later that month on BBC4. Earlier this year Robb was the featured guest on Andy Kershaw's Radio 3 programme. Robb also plays extensively in Belgium, Holland & Germany, & he has toured Britain supporting Chumbawamba. He is currently on tour in support of his latest album "Man Walks Into A Pub"

It's entirely your choice what you do with your money, Terry....is £8.00 too much to pay to see an intimate concert by one of the best songwriters around ? We charge floor singers half price (we made the decision to do that in order to discourage freeloaders who expected to pay nothing at all....remember those days?)

I know there are many people out there who expect to pay peanuts to see a class act these days. That's not why we keep doing this though. If we charged less the guest would take away less. We're just trying to ensure folks like Robb get properly reimbursed for their musicianship and artistry. He's driving up from Brighton and we're trying to give him more than petrol money. This folk club (like all the others) doesn't stand to benefit.

I would certainly pay £8 (about $12) to see Robb or any other "class act". In fact $12 for a folk concert in North America is a bargain as many are now as high as $20 for a small folk society concert.

If I was in the vicinity, I'd definitely be at Twickenham to see Robb. He is certainly one of the UK's finest songwriters and a really good guy.

And I also don't say that just because he's also a good friend. Please give him my fondest regards, Gerry.
