Music from the Celtic Nations – 17th September 2022

We had the most wonderful evening “Music from the Celtic Nations” with Paul Hancock (uillean pipes, tin whistles and low whistle), Mark Turauskis (bouzouki, bodran and vocals), Sara Daniels (concertina, guitar and vocals) performed beautiful descriptive Celtic Nations (England, Scotland and Wales). Songs included. The Thought of You by Sara Daniels, John Barleycorn by Mark Turauskis, Linden Lea by Ralph Vaughan Williams, The Field behind

The Plough by Stan Rogers and many more songs! Many of the audience had their foot tapping or hands tapping on surfaces.

After the interval, by kind permission of the band, Jessica Craker-Knott, Jo Whitfield and Paul Freeman, fellow members of the Kingsclere Singers, performed “Both sides of the Tweed”, inspired by the band Head North’s version of this song and by a piano accompaniment used by Dick Gaughan. The voices blended so harmoniously and the piano accompaniment was lovely. The band played us more beautiful music until the end. We hope to have them again in 2024.

Our next Open Mic is on Friday 7th October at 7pm.

Our next event is A Tudor Evening with Courtlye Musick!! on Saturday 22nd October 2022 at 7pm. Tickets from Eventbrite, or phone The Ship 01189 814504 Please buy your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
