October 6th Claude Bourbon!
Claude Bourbon Chapel Sessions, Royal Victoria Country Park, Netley.
Billed as a blues infused, evening of guitar and song, well-travelled on both sides of the Atlantic, UK based Swiss French singer songwriter Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell, the stunningly lit Victorian Chapel venue, Royal Victoria Country Park, proved the perfect setting for the man and his Gibson. ~ Sonja Davison

Sunday, August 9th, 2015 we lost a kindred soul, gifted songwriter performer and champion of human rights. Our grief is overwhelming…Audrey Auld performed at our very first house concert, and what a night it was! Remembering you with sweet, sassy thoughts, Audrey as I watch it again. I hope you’re making as much noise in that angel band as you made down here with us. Play on girl, play on.
