The Farewell Begins
The time has arrived, all too soon, for Coope Boyes and Simpson’s last three concerts. One London, one Sheffield and one Derby. Details can be found on their website www.coopeboyesandsimpson.co.uk . At the finale at Derby Festival they will be joined by members of the wonderful No Masters Cooperative including myself to sing them out on some of their fabulous repertoire. Well we couldn’t miss it could we. The following day Narthen will perform a set at the same festival making the name sound even more like ‘now then’.
Thanks for your support
It’s been a busy summer for myself and many of the artists on the agency. All who have performed have gained new friends and the music industry ticks on. This agency, as you are probably aware, is small and run by one person who is also a musician. Any thing you can do to help spread the word about the agency but more importantly the artists, would be gratefully received. If you have seen some or all of the artists over the summer and you have a venue near you where you would like to see them do tell the venue but also please contact me and I will pursue it on yours and the artists behalf.
Kevin Dempsey steps into the breach
Due to the illness of a band member of Pentangle at very short notice Kevin joined them at The New Forest Folk Festival. They have also asked them to join him in Edinburgh in August.
Further good news for Kevin is that Joe Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble have recorded one of kevin’s songs (his adapted lyrics and tune) on their CD ‘Painted’.
Kevin will be appearing at Broadstairs festival as a solo artist doing an intimate chat in the morning at 10.30 on the first Saturday of the festival and a concert in the main marquee the same afternoon.
