Appearing Tuesday 30th May 2017 at 8:00pm

Andy Stone
Andy is probably familiar to everyone in the area as a superb sound man for many gigging musicians and also as a really excellent musician himself. He is a skilled guitarist and sensitive accompanist for many singers. He also writes songs, many of which are based on life in his native Lincolnshire. Some of his songs are currently being arranged by other major artists with a view to them recording/playing the songs. 
We hope to have him accompanied by the very talented Hugh Budden, returning to the Drax with his blues harmonicas.

John Meriton
John's gig with us will be his first visit to the Drax Folk Nights - in his own words - "I write and perform songs. You could say I have a political narrative, yet to me I am simply saying (telling) it as it is – love, loss, laughter, history, remembrance, daily events and issues that shape our lives. Equality and sustainability for people and planet are precious to me. I share my journey with friends, musicians and poets."
We can't wait !!

Terry McDonald and Crispin Street are McFlute. With Terry's well known Gibson guitar and Crispin's delightful flute accompaniment, they play some lovely arrangements of traditional and contemporary songs and we're looking forward to their return to the Stable Bar..

No Direction
It's not so long since this band started singing together, but they're so polished with their outstanding harmonies, that you would assume they'd been an item for ever.
Their vocals are powerful, the arrangements are tight and original and their choice of material is huge and varied from folk to pop,  jazz and world songs.

Richard and Lesley Quayle (resident singers)
