"And since all this loveliness can not be Heaven,
I know in my heart it is June."  -  Abba Woolson

The Greek god Zeus is a prominent patron of June because he is an archetype of light, clarity, power and strength. June is also a month of balance, and it can't very well feature a father god without a mother goddess. Danu is considered the ultimate mother in Celtic wisdom. Danu is the epitome of artful class, craftsmanship and devotion to creative expression.

Sadly we have once again come to the final show of our concert season, but I am certain that Danu will smile upon us as we bring you Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher plus Marie Little in a wonderful double header evening at the Library Theatre on Friday June 9th.

We will be back in September with a new season of Folk and Acoustic music, starting with Australian, Irish-born, artist and song writer Enda Kenny.

Artists from Lincolnshire and Lancashire meet in a double-header concert to end our current season.

Well known throughout their native county of Lincolnshire and beyond, both for their high quality performances as a duo and as members of the Higgledy Piggledy band, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher present a fine blend of voices mellowed by nearly thirty years of singing together. Their selection of songs encompasses both ancient and modern accompanied in traditional style on English, duet and anglo-concertina, harmonium, and melodeon.

Marie Little, originally from Salford but now living in the North East, is an acclaimed performer, drawing her extensive repertoire from many genres, including Folk, Country and Music Hall. Her songs can be sad or thought-provoking one minute, and have you howling with laughter the next. She has a natural ability for knowing when to 'lift' her audience, and her warm personality and natural Northern wit add to her charm. This, combined with a tremendous talent, makes her an entertainer of the highest order, held in great affection by her fans.

Enda Kenny

Tickets £12

Our new season begins with a great show from Enda Kenny, an Irish-born songwriter who has made his home in Australia since the late 1980's. He has made many friends throughout the UK with his festival appearances, including the local Stainsby event. His performances are always memorable and spiced with plenty of humour and we are delighted to be able to bring him to our club.

Enda is so famous that the very first line of the Wikipedia page for the Irish Taoiseach (also called Enda Kenny, just in case you didn't know) redirects you to Enda Kenny (singer) since he is often the man people are searching for!
