First of all, thanks to everyone who came to the Seagull Theatre to see the brilliant Megson – a truly memorable evening which they thoroughly enjoyed as well. So much so that they have already asked for a return visit!
Our February gig is on Sunday 11th at the Cut in Halesworth when we will be presenting the brilliant young all female band from the Orkneys, Fara. If you are unfamiliar with them have a look at the Cut’s website where you will find a video of their performance at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The link is www.newcut.org/events/entry/6424.
On March 8th we are back at the Seagull for Miranda Sykes (singer and double bass player with Show Of Hands) embarking on her first solo tour for many years. Tickets at www.theseagull.co.uk/event/miranda-sykes/
The period of exclusive priority ticketing for local people for our Acoustic Music Day on 28 April at the Canopy Theatre in Beccles has expired, although you will still be able to buy tickets in person from Beccles Books. Tickets are now available to the general public online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/459147 (small booking fee applies). Details will also be going up on the websites of all the acts performing on the day which includes Gilmore & Roberts, Alden, Patterson & Dashwood, Honey & The Bear, Doghouse Roses, Penny & Stuart Mack, Joseph Parsons and The Burkitt Family – all for the amazing inclusive price of £20.
Lastly, a lot of people have been asking about tickets for Clive Gregson & Liz Simcock, who are at the Canopy Theatre on Saturday 19th May. I am pleased to say that these are finally going on sale this week. They will be available online from www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/448907 from 9.00 a.m. on 1st February (small booking fee applies) and they can be purchased in person from Beccles Books, I Exchange Square (cash only please) from Friday 2nd February.
After that, we will be taking a break for the summer (too much competition from festivals, big sporting events etc!) and picking up again in September. There may be the odd fully acoustic show in the meantime, but we will keep you posted about any that might arise.
