Monthly Newsletter - Hitchin Folkus
Well, what a
great end to the season we had!
and her Trio were just mesmerising.
We have to wonder, how long it will be before she is whisked away
to greater things? Chris
& Kellie While were as perfect as ever, supported by the beautiful
musicianship of Landermason. Then finally, Nancy Kerr as we have never
seen her before, solo. Over the years that Nancy has been playing at
Hitchin (all 25 of them!) the guitar has made sporadic appearances but,
in this last concert, the guitar was the accompaniment of choice for
half the concert, and how good it was too.
Should we have been surprised? I guess not, as Nancy is such a
great musician, and it must be easier singing without a violin under
ones chin! Lastly we must
mention Lizzy Hardingham.
What a powerhouse she is, a voice to rock the room and great
songs. There canít be many
in the folk canon about floorboards!
She is one of the hardest working local singers so, if you
havenít seen her yet, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch
up with her.
This brings me
nicely on to the
concert venues this year have, at the Memorial
In the Church
Itís not too
late to buy your tickets for this lovely little festival,

Neots Folk Club, with Tim Jellis and Phil Milner.
Then, on Saturday 27th he is at Cambridge
