Now that the dust has settled on last month’s very successful session, Jurassic Folk are girding their loins for the next one.

Now that the dust has settled on last month’s very successful session, Jurassic Folk are girding their loins for the next one.

Obviously a lot of the reason it was packed out was because everybody wanted to come to see and hear our super guest, Diana Johnstone, and she didn’t disappoint on either hand.

It was lovely to hear her gentle and thoughtful songs presented so perfectly, and I was also most impressed with the newly acquired Bose PA system which she brought along, so good that it could easily turn me in favour of PAs.

But lots of our brilliant team of regulars also managed to get a look in, albeit more brief than usual, and that included Annie’s Band (still not officially named) comprising Annie Bennett, Rob Wheaton, Mike G and Peter Arnold on bass.

They all contributed individually as well, as did the Bard of Beer, Frances Lee, Anita Cotterell who elected to recite rather than sing, Tony Reader with his hurdy gurdy, Richard who was brought along by our own Bard of Seaton, Ted Dowse, who himself excelled once more.

They all, hopefully, along with many others who have threatened to come and perform, will be on show at the next session, on Wednesday, October 20, at 8.15pm, at the good old Grove, in Seaton. All are invited to go along and watch, hear, perform or gently hum, all genres are welcome and it’s all free!!
