Peter Collins sings at the Frittenden Session, 27th December

Peter Collins is our guest at the Frittenden Session from 8pm on the 27th December – and we’re greatly looking forward to it.

Peter’s an old and treasured friend who has a wonderful voice, an outstanding collection of songs and a style strongly influenced by singing alongside many of the great names in traditional singing in SussexRon Spicer, Gordon Hall and Bob Copper were all great friends – and a genial, generous personality.

If you’ve heard him in the past, you’ll know that all of this is true!

Nothing blows away the post-Christmas cobwebs like a sing and a play down at Frittenden, so please come and join us on the 27th!
