Hamish Currie has played at our club a number of times. He is much loved for his interaction with the audience as much as for his fine voice, sensitive guitar style and his love of traditional and contemporary songs.
He doesn’t like to mention his self-deprecating sense of humour. “Because”, he says, “it’s not very good.”
Originally from the east coast of Scotland, folk music was always part of the landscape for Hamish. But it was on moving south half a lifetime ago and discovering English folk music that his performing really took off. His repertoire is now taken from the traditions on both sides of the border, laced with some original and contemporary material. And fun.
A veteran of Towersey Folk Festival, Bude & Stratton Folk Festival, Holmfirth Festival of Folk and Cambridge Folk Festival no less, he is always welcome at our humble little club and we’re delighted to welcome him back.
Peter Crossley is Hertford-based and displays impressive skills in singing, playing guitar and fiddle, and songwriting. His debut album, Rags to Riches, has been well-received with several radio plays. He has a powerful voice and a commanding prescence – we’re looking forward to enjoying his set.
