Mr. Banks' Review Page

Dave Banks

This page is an innovation from Chesterfield Folk Club. It's designed to host reviews of local concerts – especially those held at the Folk Club – and albums in which we feel our followers may be interested.

Many of the reviews have been written by Dave Banks, who has recently joined the folk club committee. He's an active musician – being a member of several groups and duos: The Sedatives, Me and Mr Jones and, most recently, Poke O'Swedgers. At the folk club, Dave assists with the sound system and the foyer bar. As well as reviewing each concert, he is particularly concerned with promoting the participation of young local musicians and of less "traditional" artists at the Club.

The list of concert reveiws on the right of this page includes articles that have also appeared in our newsletter (to subscribe, click here) and the album reviews - many of which feature the support acts he has brought to the club - may also be found on our Facebook page.
