HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

The final event in the Unison Club Cellar, for us and for the Unison Club, was the Jez Lowe concert and buffet. 

It was a tremendous sell-out success with many positive and appreciative comments (thank you for that)...and so a fitting end for 2017 and Folk in the Cellar and a fitting beginning for our move to Lincoln Drill Hall to continue our folk concerts under the title of Folk upstairs at the Drill.

This blog will be appropriately amended in the near future to include a biog feature on the artists of our concerts for 2018. All our concerts are featured on the Drill Hall Lincoln website lincolndrillhall.com

TICKETS TO BE PURCHASED FROM LINCOLN DRILL HALL or on the door - but remember maximum is 55 tickets (and we can't nip outside to bring in a few extra chairs!)

lincolndrillhall.com
01522 873894

START TIME FOR ALL DRILL HALL CONCERTS IS 7.30pm

VENUE is upstairs at Lincoln Drill Hall (there is a lift).

As usual the concert will start with a support artist.....again that will be added to this blog soon.

ON A lighter note STEVE JACKSON who had to come off early on Saturday night due to health problems,  was checked over in A & E (only 20 minute wait) later that evening and pronounced A1.

He is to see his consultant tomorrow for a further check but is currently very much up and running!

BOOKING ARTISTS FOR LINCON UPSTAIRS AT THE DRILL…(and faldingworthlive)…...
folk music as a live performance…..

This is what we do…..Andy has been promoting folk events for over forty years so he has a store of contact details for most folk artists…but he is always open to suggestions and contacts from the public and new (to us) artists….the rule is that an artist must be seen in performance to be considered for booking.

Other musical genre such as blues, as well as main stream and traditional folk artists will be considered.

We go to as many local gigs and national festivals as we can to see in performance acts that have been recommended to us.

Andy is also always looking out for new local support acts, as well as inviting established local artists to support…. are you interested in doing a support act ?  Please speak to Andy using the contact details at the top of this site.

WE promote another fantastic folk music programme of national and international professional artists in Faldingworth village hall.  It is called Faldingworthlive.

EVENTS at FALDINGWORTHLIVE 2017-2018

( Faldingworth is nine miles out of Lincoln in Faldingworth village - the village hall is literally beside the A46 as you drive through from Lincoln so it is not difficult to find!)


Just a list for the moment, but our next event at 
Faldingworth on Saturday 27 January 2018 is:

The Broadside Boys and Between the Lines - a double booking so no support act - tickets still available (posted Wednesday 24 January 2018)
