Tandragee concert, 23 Sept. 2016: full details

Following the BIB's stopgap post of yesterday, thanks to Denver Pearson for the following details of the concert which will be held in Tandragee Golf Club, Co. Armagh, on Friday 23 September. Denver writes:

I am part of the recently formed group Never Too Late. We got together one year ago through Chanters and Strummers, an open mic singing circle run by myself. The name of the group is very apt, as the majority of the group have only recently learnt their talents and are still very new to the music scene. They play/sing a variety of music from bluegrass, country, and folk.

Chanters and Strummers always meet on the first Thursday in the month in Laurelvale Cricket Club, Laurelvale, Co. Armagh, and on the third Thursday of the month in Groucho's Bar/restaurant in Richhill, Co. Armagh, where we meet upstairs in a designated music area. We run a variety of concerts through Chanters and Strummers and hope to continue with this, as it is an excellent way to bring music to the public.

BIB readers will be familiar with the names of the Tennessee Hennessees, Janet Dowd, and Mons Wheeler. Denver adds:

The others playing at this concert are Harry Welling, who toured America with Tom Paxton for four years; having recently relocated to Co. Armagh, he sings country and folk songs along with his wife Sinead.

Shades of Blue are a father-and-daughter group and are frequently seen at blues festivals throughout Ireland. Courtnay sings and plays guitar and her father plays saxophone.

Mons Wheeler does a variety of music from country to blues and has his own group. He is currently producing a CD and has also recently been to America.

Doors open at 7.30 p.m. for the concert on 23 September, and the compere will be Leonard Shields. Tickets (£12 each, which includes a light supper) are available at Scarva Rea Rooms. For more information, contact Denver (079 00343113) or Melvyn (077 71776545).
