Folk visits Labour

Gus M
Gus MacGregor, whose magnificent set was a highlight of this year's Ely Folk Festival, will be playing at the Cambridge Folk Club on Friday, 19 September. The event will take place in Romsey Labour Club, on Mill Road, as regular venue The Golden Hind completes its refurbishment.

MacGregor won awards for his starring role in the West End musical Buddy. Now, however, he is an accomplished singer-songwriter in the style of - and every bit as good as - vintage Californians such as Jackson Browne and James Taylor. His sensitive, gentle and reflective songs exude a peaceful power.

Also performing on this Showcase evening will be Cruel Folk and Howard Roscoe and Martin Kaszak. Tickets will cost £6 on the door, £5 in advance and £4 for members.

On 5 September the Folk Club returns from its summer break with an Open Stage evening at Romsey Labour Club. On 12 September the club moves for one week only to St Lukes Church in Victoria Road, for a concert by lively acoustic trio Uiscedwr, with special guest accordionist Karen Tweed, and support from Bryony Lemon.

The Cambridge Folk Club will return to its residence at The Golden Hind on Friday 26 September, for a concert by Betmead, Rundall and Olney.
