A Celtic Croodle on Tuesday, March 5th
The Friends have in the past celebrated Burns Night very thoroughly in January. The month of March contains both St. David’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day so this year we are trying something different to remember the musical culture of our Celtic cousins.
You are warmly invited to join us for a musical evening of Scottish, Irish and Welsh folk songs sung by FoN member, Wendy Edwards, with her excellent piano accompanist Mrs. Ann Booth on Tuesday 5th March at 7.30pm. The Welsh songs will be sung in English so everyone can share in their beautiful meaning as well as the melody.
Wendy will sing a mixture of Celtic songs and explain a little about the history of the song. You are welcome to sing along as the words will be provided. There will be a few solos and it’s planned that a close friend of Wendy’s, professional singer Melissa Heathcote, will be able to join her to create some harmony and counter-melody in some songs. A young guitarist, Ricky O’Donnell, has also been asked to do a few numbers but his availability is not yet confirmed.
There will be light refreshments, (cheese and crackers and shortbread, with tea and coffee), provided at the interval.
Wednesday, April 24th Coffee Morning
From 10.30am till noon, in the Loose Box and Stable, by the Service wing of Nonsuch Mansion. £2.50
