Mighty singer and anglo concertinist Will Duke is our guest at the next Frittenden session at the Bell & Jorrocks pub on the 27th April from 8pm. (It’s also our last session night for the season – so don’t come along expecting something similar on the last Sunday in May!)
It will be a night not to miss. Here’s what Rod Stradling has said about Will’s performing:
‘Will is a superlative anglo concertina player, with an unusual repertoire drawn manily from the musicians of his home county of Sussex – and particularly from the playing of Scan Tester.
‘If Will’s consumate concertina playing isn’t enough for you… I think he’s one of the most accomplished of English revival singers, and possessed of a unique (or certainly, individual) style. He’s a quiet man with a lovely dry sense of humour’
These cracking sessions take place on the last Sunday (usually) in the month from September to April, from 8pm at the Bell & Jorrocks (TN17 2EJ).
What you get is an entertaining old fashioned and traditional pub evening with songs and tunes, and plenty of variety and good humour. If you’ve got a song, a tune, a stepdance or story, enjoy joining in with a chorus or just like listening in the bar, please come along. We go on until it’s time to close with Nellie Dean the old way – just as people used to before the telly and the computer.
