Hi Folks

There will be our, now traditional, “Fish & Chip Supper with….” concert on August 19th.  This year the music will be provided by be LOZT.  Lozt, (pronounced 'lost'), is a soulful Americana duo from both sides of the pond. Lauren Scudder (Orange County, California) and Tom Ryder (Cambridge, UK) come together to draw on folk, acapella and R&B, creating songs with witty lyrics and soaring harmonies. Tom has been playing at Hitchin for several years now, and his development over this period has been almost astonishing. This will be a very welcome return for Lauren & Tom, who have provided support for us on several occasion. The evening will feature some songs from their individual back catalogue and their ever expanding duo repertoire. YouTube
