HomeEventsSinger/Songwriter Special – 19th August 2015

Host Steve West opened the evening singing “Marlboro Town” and “Devil’s Curse” accompanied by Scott Miguel on lead guitar and backing vocals. Next up, our youngest performer and Scott’s daughter, Charlotte Miguel. She sang “Guardian Angel”, “The Light On The Other Side” and “Finding Myself”. Then it was Dad’s turn. He performed “Forbidden Love”, “Two Cellos” and “The Chase” with the help of Steve and Charlotte on Backing Vocals. There can’t be many folk clubs that can boast one professor let alone two! However, two professors it was… on the same stage… together! Jonathan Klein was accompanied on double bass by John Gabbay and sang; “If There Were 25 hours”, “The Angel Song”, “Oh, Stephanie” and “If I Could Have One Wish”. To finish the first half, Rachel Cheyne came to the stage. She sang “Mr Time”, “Solent Mermaid” and “Clandestini” (in Italian!). After the break and raffle, Steve sang his “Christchurch Smuggler” before introducing Traci Kennedy. She performed songs from a set entitled “Songs For Edward”; “Da De Da”, “What Can I Do?”, “Magic Circle”, and “90 Days”. Steve Moorhouse is no stranger to the local music scene, or the local hat shop! He sang; “Hobo Blues”, “The Passing Bells”, “Fast Fingers” and “Out On The Forest” accompanied by Carole Puttick on flute. And finally, to end the evening in great style, Warwick Slade. Warwick entertained us with his take on the trials and delights of ‘old age’ singing; “Three Score & Ten”, “Old TOG’s Lament”, “Valentines ’58”, “Dead On Time” and “Inheritance Blues”.
