Appearing 8:00pm Tuesday 26th June 2018

 

Steve Faulkner
Steve lives in Poole and is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with his own take on Traditional, Folk and Acoustic music. Playing Fiddle, Bouzouki, Low Whistles, Bodhrán and to everyone’s surprise (including his) Double Bass and Bass Guitar, he has worked over the past 20 or so years in a number of groups across the UK and Europe with wide ranging musical appeal as well as giving solo performances. We're looking forward to his return to us.

Mandy Stansfield
Mandy sings both her own songs and covers and accompanies herself on keyboards. We love her sound and hope to hear her sing quite a few songs on her own for us this time.

The Polly Morris Band
If you could imagine the love child of Bill Bailey and Victoria Wood that would be Polly Morris. Her observational comedy songs about such things as supermarket shopping or the perils of e-mail, are songs that you can instantly identify with. These are peppered with more thoughtful acoustic numbers that are reminiscent of Karen Carpenter.
Polly has been performing her songs as a solo artist from an early age but, in the last few years, has been performing with her Dorset Based Comic-Folk band. The tag line " Expect the Unexpected" has become linked with this band that combine fun with musicality. It is certainly Music to make you smile.

Richard and Lesley Quayle (resident singers)
We'll see you there !!!!

"There are guitarists, there are axe-wielding maniacs, and then there are wizards. Adrian Legg is one of the wizards. He has enough technique to do just about anything he wants, but also the sensitivity to honour the contours of a melody." – Philadelphia Enquirer, Aug. 5, 2000

For those who haven't come across Adrian Legg, well, we don't know where you've been hiding.

Throughout his career, he has earned the highest praise from the media. "Legg is, above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility,” observes the St. Petersburg Times. “Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra.

Guitar Player heralds how he “combines a sublime melodic sense with a mighty right-hand groove, creating pretty music with rhythmically aggressive undercurrents,” while Acoustic Guitar notes that “the guitar is the most versatile instrument in the world, and nobody demonstrates this better than Adrian Legg.

But the Atlanta Journal-Constitution likely summed up his impact on listeners best when it exclaimed, "Mr. Legg's compositions, with their narrative melodies and nakedly emotive tones, offer an antidote to the guitar-hero syndrome.

Setting the stage for his international success, Adrian was named as Acoustic Guitarist of the Decade by the UK’s Guitarist Magazine(1984-94), and Best Acoustic Fingerstylist in Guitar Player Magazine’s Readers’ Poll for four years in a row. (1993-96).

"Simply the best acoustic guitar player I've ever heard." . (guitar icon Joe Satriani)
