Travelling Shrewsburys Triumph

8 Feb 2019

The Travelling Shrewsburys (Keith Ferris, Jim Radford and friends) returned for another brilliant night of folk music and shanties on Friday 8th February, playing to a packed bar (and a dog).

Joining Keith and Jim were super guitarist singer Ian Ripsher, singer songwriter Joanna Girdlestone (lucky to get her as she has been involved in projects at the V&A museum, recording an album and other projects lately), big favourites, The Gillies, Nathan Persad who pecialises in playing songs that are lying asleep in everyone's musical DNA - a memory jogger of once familiar pop songs.

Also we saw the return of Kentish folk singers Linda Smith and Alan Austen, great songs of our past that we should know. And, last but by no means least, local renaissance man, Rob Thom, songwriter, performer, painter, artist.
 
The Travelling Shrewsburys will be back soon for another Folk on Friday session.
