Peterborough & South Lincs Folk Diary

Saturday 1 Jun

  

 Ukulele Flashmob - 1pm to 3pm - Cathedral Square, Peterborough - Yup,- there will be an 'impromptu' explosion of strumming and singing as ukuleles appear from rucksacks and shopping bags, and singing fills the Square. Let's surprise, enthral, amuse, and entertain the good folk of Peterborough. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to have a bit of a busk. Members of many local bands and groups have already shown an interest, including the Palmy Uke Band (of course), Wansford Ukulele Folk, D'ukes of Rutland, Whittlesey's 'strum for fun' group, The Spalding Ukulele Orchestra, and many more. Hopefully all strummers in the Peterborough area and beyond will want to be part of this amazing event.  https://www.facebook.com/events/271573713721782/ and

GeorgeLeadenham Katie Spencer https://www.katiespencer.net - Drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Roy Harper and Laura Marling, Katie Spencer creates modern progressive folk music which owes as much the songwriters of the 60’s acoustic music heyday as it does the East Riding landscape where she has always felt a strong spiritual connection. Her striking vocals and deft songwriting are backed by an evocative and complex guitar style that takes her music to places that are both esoteric and beautiful. At just 22 years old, Katie has already built up an extremely respected profile within the national acoustic music scene, receiving praise from the likes of Ralph McTell and Ian Hunter of Mott The Hoople. She has shared the stage with world-class musicians such as Ted McKenna and Foss Paterson, and was part of this year’s Celtic Connections celebrations alongside Paul Weller and Eddi Reader playing at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall. With various releases already under her belt, Katie was awarded with the Yorkshire Gig Guide Outstanding Emerging Artist in 2018 and continues to receive glowing reviews of both her live performances and recorded works. Ralph McTell said “Katie’s guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch. Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song.” - 7.45pm - Stables Bar, George Hotel, Leadenham, near Sleaford, LN5 0PN - entry £7.50 and £5 concessions - one of the series of concerts leading up to the 10th Annual Day of Lincolnshire Folk on Sunday 4th August

The Blues Band http://www.thebluesband.net Many of the Blues Band’s 21st century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ’just to play the blues’.
