Where has 2019 gone already?
There I was talking about how busy last year was with the 40th anniversary of Blowzabella and suddenly we are in the middle of September 2019 already. Blowzabella have had an understandably quieter year but there was another anniversary to celebrate. The Poozies are playing regularly throughout the Uk and mainland Europe and their high energy set is making them popular as a headliner for festivals.Token Women are 3o years old and as well as doing gigs in their current line-up all over the country they had a fantastic retrospective couple of days at Sidmouth festival with Kathryn Locke and Carly Rose rejoining the band and Kathryn also played again with the band at Towersey. Moirai have been busy recording a new Cd of their show ‘Framed – The Alice Wheeldon Story’ . The CD will be available at the premiere on 5th October at Derby Folk Weekender and then will be performed around the country during 2020. Narthen have a new line up including the wonderful Jim Causley. They have been rehearsing and preparing for their debut in the Autumn this year. The Old Swan band are 45 this year and have been recording a Cd called Fortyfived to celebrate that fact. Topette!! have released their second Cd, Rhododendron, to great a claim and had a fabulous audience at Towersey, Bromyard and other gigs throughout the year. Kevin Dempsey continues to amzae with his guitar playing and has been working with Jacqui McShee on a regular basis. Most of the acts are out and about this Autumn and whilst I try to update their dates here I don’t represent all of them exclusivley so do pop to their websites for updates partiuclarly for gigs outside the Uk and for the Poozies including Scotland.
