The music session (with some songs) formerly at the Crown, in Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, is now at the Seven Stars, Coleham Head, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY3 7BP 07890 174889. [Confirmed by Ralph Edwards as moved but still running in September 2019.]
I haven’t been for many years, but sounds as if it’s still a good session.
Another review for Folking.com. Good to hear that Ralph is still making good music. RALPH McTELL – Hill Of Beans (Leola Music TPGCD50)
Another of my reviews for folking.com: THE LOST WORDS – Spell Songs (Folk By The Oak QRCD004)
I like it very much.
A review for Folking.com of the forthcoming CD by Andi Lee:
A little bird tells me that the amazingly talented Daria Kulesh is offering the albums by Kara – with whom she was lead singer between 2013 and 2017 – ‘Some Other Shore’ and ‘Waters So Deep’ at half price. And if you haven’t already, you might want to check out her solo albums – two of which I’ve reviewed enthusiastically – at the same time. Her online shop is here.
Here’s another of my reviews for folking.com: this time of an excellent CD by Baldric’s Plan, three guys specializing in close harmony and based in my part of Cornwall: BALDRICK’S PLAN – Counting The Tides (Grandplan Records GPR1902)
I’ve just received updated information from Clive Grainger about these sessions. (Thanks, Clive.)
“Hi David, could you include the following on the Sabrinaflu listings, pleasde? We are not quite in the Severn Valley, but close to a couple of tributaries in the Newport area! Firstly, you list an Open Mic or a session in the Lion at Edgmond. The pub is closed, permanently, we believe, sadly, but the sessions still run under the title
