Music - Folk, from 13 Jan 2018, free entry


On the second Saturday of every month.

An opportunity for acoustic solo artists, bands and poets to showcase their material, and for you to hear some great music and poetry.

The next SlackFolk session will be on Saturday 13th January, featuring music from:

• Jim S Reynolds - An acoustic set from one of Colchester’s leading rock and blues guitarists, who has just released an album of his own songs

• Trevor Attwater - A gifted singer and acoustic guitarist from Romford, who sings blues and traditional and contemporary folk interspersed with pop

• Peter Kerr & Friends - A cheery and warm performer, whose introductions are as delightful as his songs

• Michael Aitchison - A singer, songwriter and guitarist, with some of his own songs and his take on some others

• Dave Rado - An authority on the history and derivation of folk song, with a session of a capella community song to join in and enjoy

• Richard Brazear - A few songs from the SlackFolk MC
