Dave Swarbrick will be appearing at Tonbridge Folk Club on 7 February for the bargain entrance fee of £5! We are expecting a big turnout so get there early to secure a seat.

I'll be there! Is start time 8pm as usual? Is there a support?

Apart from paying at the door (and the extra crowds) it should be just like a normal guest night, i.e. starting at 8 pm with tunes and floor singers followed by the first guest spot, then the interval, then floor singers and guest again, winding up at 11 pm. Floor singers are arranged on the night. Make yourselves known to Bob Kenward who will be the MC.

We do start prompt at 8 to ensure all the floor singers that can be accomodated are put on... I suspect that intending singers will need to be along early, if only because space to tune up and store cases might be at a premium....
see you there
Bob

I think it would be ther height of cheek for me to attempt to play or sing in the same room and on the same night as Swarb, however tempting it might be :-)

We welcome everyone and try to include them. In normal circumstances we like to give everybody who wants to sing at least one chance. If there is pressure because of numbers we give preference to visitors.

Rob
Saw Swarb at Dartford FC last year. He still has the magic. Many moons ago I bought a fiddle off him and he was disappointed not to hear it being played. ( Dartford tends to have their set support acts - but the best ever selection of beer).

I will always remeber Georgina Le Faux when I first started playing being kind enough to say that music is a celebration and not a competition. I was feeling reticent to play with such a good fiddler as Gina as the paid guest. The essence of folk music is variety Rob - so give it a go and enjoy the evening.

FloraG, Thanks for the encouragement, but my nerves are usually bad enough without adding to them even further :-).

I saw Swarb twice last year, once with Martin Carthy at the Half Moon in Putney and then solo, 10 minutes walk from where I live, at The Beacon in Tunbridge Wells. The Beacon show was brilliant (Half Moon was great too, but the Beacon *shone*!)

Hope you still have the fiddle you bought from him!

Of course I still do, Rob. A treasured possession.

I've often thought if I lived in Assie and faced the big wet what possessions would I save? The 2 accoustic fiddles come near the top of the list as you get used to your own fiddle - and it takes a while to find out how it plays best. Other instruments can be more easily replaced.
